Busy Sunday


hi friends!  this weekend is flying by so quickly. It's a good thing tomorrow is a national holiday. I spent the
morning at an antique market, it is open every Sunday during the summer, and is huge! it takes hours to get through the whole place. I normally go there looking for old books and vintage ephemera to use in my art,  or paintings I may like.  I ended up with 4 vintage children's books, and a nice horse painting.

Afterward I went with my dear friend to her boyfriend's farm and took some photos of the horses. Of course,  the weather clouded over, just like the 2 or 3 previous times I went there trying to get good pics. Once we finished, and sat down on the porch with a coffee, that's when the sun came out again. I'm starting to think I am  jinxed, lol! I know the best photos are the ones with lots of contrast, with a nice blue sky in the background but it wasn't to be this time, but I like this pic of mama and baby horse.

 Last night  I started some more whimsical owl ACEOs, including this one featuring  2 owls at a drive in, complete with popcorn and soda.  After all those angels I have been doing I felt like a change.
Thanks for reading! enjoy the rest of your day

The horsed are very pretty, but who can resist a baby anything. I love the owls at the drive-in, brought back so many memories. Do you still have drive-in Movies there? I haven't seen one in years.

Yes, I'm glad it's Victoria Day tomorrow too! I really need the extra day.

That's so awesome that you went to a horse farm! It's nice to see the baby animals out.

the photo of the horses is wonderful, spring is such a fickle time, sun clouds and so on! Your aceo is charming and fun to see.

The horses are gorgeous!! Our weather has been sunny but high winds have plagued us all month!!
Puts a damper on things when winds blow at over 45 MPH!!
