A Design a Day – Day 184

I’m a bit bleary-eyed

after a week of playing opera performances, a runout concert and a youth program.

My husband and a vodka tonic are calling.

So is the comfy couch, blanket and space heater in front of the TV.

Happy Sunday evening to all of my readers!

A Design a Day – Day 180

I’m not Irish

(not even distantly)

but I had some “luck of the Irish” today…


I got a hand-written congratulations note

from my state representative

(on a design award I won earlier this year)

who also thanked me for bringing beauty into this world.
