Orange Clothespin Painting

I painted this in college in my Painting II class.  I went to Drexel University in Philly, a year round school with 10 week semesters and this was one of my summer classes.  I will admit that I am not the greatest painter and this truly is the best thing I ever painted that looks semi-realistic.  I love abstract painting but that is not what this class was about.  There was lots of painting bottles with draped fabric, the subject matter was pretty boring.  7 weeks into the class I decided I wasn't going to paint any of the real colors that were there, and that changed everything and made it more fun for me.  Too bad I didn't figure that out sooner :) This hangs in our living room, next to the back door.  

It was a busy week and somehow we only crossed one thing off our Summer Bucket List.

SBL #3: Make ice cream.  This was a really yummy one :) This was a reward for PB being good all week while hubby traveled.  I used this recipe which required no cooking and cooling of ingredients.  It turned out pretty good.  We ate it right out of the machine and haven't eaten the leftovers yet.  

Look at our latest Zucchini!! Time to try a new zucchini recipe!

I have a sewing friend this week.  She kept me company while I sewed yesterday. We are dog sitting this sweet girl for 10 days!! we are having so much fun with her.

Happy Weekend!
