The Thanksgiving turkeys left 22 eggs in grandma and Papa‘s backyard on Thanksgiving day! They were filled with all sorts of treats that a two and a four-year-old would love… Those Thanksgiving turkeys are quite the critters LOL 🦃🦃🦃 Sure made for a fun afternoon.
NPR’s Iconic Cranberry Relish
My mother was a fabulous pie baker… And holidays gave her a canvas for her art. I loved her pecan pie, and my cousin motivated me to bake one this holiday season. I’m so glad I did! The crust is a sugar cookie dough, and it was pretty easy to put together. Probably the biggest challenge was finding golden syrup. World Market does carry it though, so I bought a couple of the bottles to keep in the pantry. I really like the Golden Syrup— It has a buttery, caramel taste to it. You can make it from sugar syrup and lemon, but I didn’t want to make something I had never tasted LOL. Glad I used it rather than Karo syrup.
I used the Baking Bible for the recipe...glad I invested in the cookbook. It has been helpful for upping my baking game! I plan on drizzling a lacy milk chocolate over the top of the pie on Thanksgiving day. Yum!
Remember forward movement.
These are my three submissions— kinda out of usual realm, but I like shows like this to have fun and try different techniques. Strrrrrrrrretches you as an artist. I like that!

“A CALL FOR ARTISTSTHE POSTCARD SHOW RETURNS
Toucan used to do a “Postcard Show.” After we bought Toucan, we evolved that show into what we’ve called “The Little Art Show,” for the last almost 14 years. This was a show of, well, little art, but without the postcard aspect, whether real or figurative.
Now, in the weirdest year ever, with more people necessarily staying home and social distancing, and with our postal service somehow under siege — and in order to show our support for that postal service — we’re going to do it again: yes, the Postcard Show returns.
HERE’S HOW IT WORKS:We’re asking artists to once again submit small works of art to be included in the show, but this time around, all artwork must be what is essentially a postcard, that is: the artwork must be sent through the mail. Not in an envelope, the work itself must be sent through the mail. It must have a postmark on it.
HERE ARE THE DETAILS:
As a working artist/retired art educator, I've always lived the artful life. Let's share!
