A Good Saturday

I had a great day today. I made more progress on getting every thing reorganized down in my office and studio. It is not quite finished, but I had to fit in some fun time, too. We had some nice sunshine today so we enjoyed a long walk with my favorite four legged companion. I love her ears and nose!!


After lunch, I got out my vintage Japanese textiles and started arranging possible color combinations for a collage for the Fiber Art for a Cause Reverse Auction.

I ususally do reds, yellows and golds, but I really want to do something a little different this time. Here is a palette based on turquoisy fabrics:


This is turquoise with a little more orange:


Here is a set based on blue as the anchor color.


And finally, oranges and browns.


I am really leaning towards the turquoise with lots of orange. I like to select large and small prints for variety.

Tonight, we had a dinner with friends from church. I was responsible for the salad. I really did not want to go to the store. I had some nice baby greens on hand.


I candied some walnuts in balsamic vinegar, brown sugar and olive oil.


Granny Smith apples, sliced and splashed with lemon juice.


Add some Gorgonzola cheese and you have a yummy salad.


I am really enjoying all the comments on my anniversary blog. Keep them coming. I will select two winners on Monday.

    The Magster is definitely a cutey pie!!! 😉
    My vote goes to the turq & orange also.
    And the salad looks yummy! My lunch salad was composed of mixed greens, steamed asparagus, roasted beats, sliced mushrooms and grape tomatoes. I had hoped for some Feta, but I’d finished that a few days ago! Oh well!!

    My favorite is the salad! That sounds and looks so good. I like the turquoise with lots of orange but I think I like the orange/brown combo best. Have fun!
