Blue Jay!





Birds of a feather, flock together and so do kindred spirits.


I am grateful for the gift of friendship and the wonderful women I share it with. Having friends to talk and listen to, encourage, brain storm ideas, create and pray with,  has enriched my everyday life.

One such friend is, wife, mother and artist, Mary Gregory, who recently came for a visit. Delighted to spend time together we walked, talked and painted ourselves silly! Boy, did we have fun! Mary, found the blue jay feather above and we were smitten with the idea of feathers! We painted all three in a few hours. We struggled a bit with the white one and decided to set the timer and paint more quickly the next two. When finished, we ate a lovely dinner at Meggs Café. We had a blast! I hope she’ll come again soon.


Mary, one of the most thoughtful, kindest, gentlest souls I’ve known is simply put,  precious.  Soft spoken and uplifting, her words have encouraged many.


Though busy as a bee with her fast growing company,

F I G    M A R M A L A D E, she still finds time to be genuine and sincere. Just like her art! Mary, is a breath of fresh air…like the warm sun on your face. She lives on a farm with her husband David, where they chickens, cows and a garden. Mary, paints the lovely life around her and then shares it aprons, cup towels, wall art and much more. It’s the next best thing to spending a few days in the country.


I do hope you get to meet Mary, some day! She is making her way around the country selling to retailers everywhere but you don’t have to wait until then to buy her artful goods.


Just click and go to Mary Gregory Studios.

Take your time. There’s no need to hurry. Just enjoy!


Have a lovely day, where ever you are…

Big Hug!

Roxanne! How sweet! You make me sound a lot better than I am. I'm so eternally grateful for you, your influence, your encouragement, your beautiful soul, your fun spirit...I could go on and on and I know there will be many (like everyone who's ever met you) who will second this. I love you!
