  Back again to the Weinstrasse Cabins, our 4th year!  Hope & I have got our banners up to say  the Artists are back again!.
Maurice my husband is our faithful chauffeur each year. He gets a lot of reading and walking in as well as enjoying the lavish socials the winery's provide!

We had hot air balloons to paint one morning!

Many artists were out at 6:00 A.M. to paint them! Not us!
While Hope and I painted Maurice enjoyed himself!
I painted this pot of pinks adding my own tablecloth idea!
I painted this couple at one of the Wineries. I called it "Hope Springs Eternal" I'm not quite finished with it so will show later.
We looked forward to a stop at this German Bakery on the way home.

Hope painting hanging flower baskets.
This is my painting inspired by a setting inside Stone Ledge Antiques.
Folks enjoying the sun for a change! 
We enjoyed beautiful slow jazz (My favorite) while enjoying a lovely meal.
 Our favorite place for morning coffee when it wasn't to cold that is!

Painting inside on one of our rainy days.
Got to make this sign to hang under my mail box!

My weathered cross was made by a friend at church for our Easter Services. After finding out that it was available I made an agreement to contribute to a mission project he is involved in as payment. As I use the blue bottles in my garden I decided the blue and white drape suited it fine! I will probably change the drape from time to time with the seasons. There are white and green leaved hostas starting to come up in the rocked off area.
An inside project I'm working on at church in one of the nursery rooms. I'm doing a lot of praying on this one! It doesn't bother me when I only have myself to please, but much different here! Will keep you posted!
Isn't all this color beautiful!! I had seen other bloggers use some of this Sari ribbon and finally ask one where she got it! So to Etsy I went! Have lots of ideas for it's use! Will show you later.
