Happy Valentine's Day!

A small, colored pencil, sketch of a small rose bud (dried) that came from a lovely bouquet which I had hung up to dry in order to preserve the colors of the roses - with a small candy heart on the upper right corner of one of my smaller sketchbooks.

Small, sweet, memories on Valentine's Day. :)

"Rose Hips & Jam"
pen & ink with watercolors, in moleskine sketchbook
February, 2015 ~ Utrecht, Netherlands


Rose Hips : another good source of vitamin-C.  
The rose hips are from my garden - the jam is not. I haven't yet attempted to make rose hips jam, but maybe in the future ...
However, the drawing/watercolor is from my hand. :D 



cheers,
Judy

The decorating is done ... with Sacha's help, of course.

Well, it's certainly been a few months since I've/we've posted anything here. Life has a way of throwing up road blocks when you least expect them. So it goes, but all is fine really.

Sacha and I hope our "readers" have very Happy Holidays, whatever you celebrate. We'll see you sometime in the New Year; maybe with less posts like this past year has been, (we're not fortune tellers), but Sacha and I will be back.


Fijne Feestdagen 

en een Gelukkig Nieuwjaar!




Take care of yourselves,
Judy & Sacha (the kat in klompen)
