2016 Archie, Mo. Beta Sigma Phi Founders Day Dinner at the Lovely Farm Home of Cricket Kroneke.

Norma Keltner on left and Cricket Kroneke; best friends prepared and served our delicious gourmet meal.
I shared the story of the historical painting "O'er the Land of the Free"by Sidney Moore before we said The Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag.

Cricket has such a lovely home. We sure enjoyed  viewing it all before our meal.

Our faithful servers were on duty again for our Annual Woman's Tea at Church. Husband Maurice is in the middle.

The theme was The Promise-The Rainbow so each table was a color of the rainbow

Lovely Ladies!

My new Clematis plant.

Decided to do a painting of lavish clematis vines at the recent workshop.

I've been wanting a chartreuse hosta  so got one this year. I went back to get another but the line was so long I decided to go back on a day other than Saturday!

I've had fun making more curtain swags for the blue garden. Also got a bag of crystal prisms at a garage sale and have had fun hanging them from fine wire in the garden. You can see some  hanging on the lamp.

Have had several friends with Birthdays recently so have sent this greeting painted a few years back to them by  e-mail

I'm enjoying this little bright spot by the entrance to the back porch

Found these neat colorful flowers at the Garden City Thrift Store recently.

"The Go Go Girls + One" enjoying taking out a longtime friend for lunch  to celebrate her Birthday recently.

My newest Folk Art Town Spring Painting. Hope you are enjoying Spring Time where you are too! Might enjoy my second blog also:


  1. I hit a wrong button and lost a long comment I'd just composed :)
    Trying to convey my pleasure in finding you'd posted this morning....It's dark outside, but the birds are singing up a storm. (Well, I hope not a "storm"!)
    I 'specially enjoyed seeing your newest spring painting, the size of the huge clematis flower, and knowing you have a friend named "Cricket"!
    Where DID April go? My hubby has weeded all the flower beds and they are mostly mulched. Now it's MY turn to arrange the smaller "yard art". Hopefully, the rain will stop and I'll get that done!
    I want to cut a few lilacs before church this morning to take to a friend in the hospital. (We'll be visiting her after church.)
    Be well & keep creating!
