Last night, MacDaddy and I attended a

Each guest was asked to bring a bottle of wine for a tasting. BUT...the wine bottle had to be in costume.

What a fun twist on the usual dress-up party!!!

There were some really creative costumes...
We had witches, mummies, and ghosts, a Geisha "girl", a hula dancer, a "poison" bottle complete with skull, Santa Claus, a Ninja, a flamingo, and more...

Can you guess which bottle we brought????

Hey...the game was on (that's the only way Marty would have attended. And Auburn won!)

I have learned that if there is anything around me that would cause me to fall...

be it HUGE like a boulder in the road...

or just a tiny shell resting on the sand...

I will always find a way to trip, stumble, and fall.

And so I did...

So to give me a little more time to paint, as my arm and wrist heal...
I am moving the date for our Art at Home show. 

For those of you who are in the Tampa Bay area...and beyond...You are invited to join us on

Saturday, November 19
10:30 - 3:00 (ish)

Hope to see you here....

I'm late, I'm late 
for a very important date
No time to say "Hello", "Goodbye"
I'm late, I'm late, I'm late, I'm late
And when I wave, 
I lose the time I save
My fuzzy ears and whiskers 
Took me too much time to shave
I run and then I hop, hop, hop
I wish that I could fly
There's danger if I dare to stop
And here's the reason why

You see, I'm overdue, 
I'm in a rabbit stew 
Can't even say "Goodbye", "Hello" 
I'm late, I'm late, I'm late.......

I am feeling a bit like the "White Rabbit"...there is so much to 
do and so little time left. Our fall ART AT HOME 
date is looming (November 5) and as usual, THE MUSE 
is just beginning to hit full force. All my free time will 
be spent in front of my easel (and my fingers will be 
covered in paint). So I will be taking a leave from blogging 
for a couple of weeks. I will try to stop by your blogs for a 
visit... Hopefully, I will have paintings up for you to see...
and possibly purchase (if my guru gets things done in time).

See you soon...

ps For those of you in the Tampa Bay area, I hope you will 
be able to stop by Art at Home. Shellbelle, Becky (the quilter) and I would love to see you. We have five artists sharing 
their work...photographs, quilted art, paintings and driftshells. And we're gonna have some of Catherine's Cupcakes 
(Sounds of Sight blog). They're worth the trip!!!

Email me for more information...
