Farmhouse Rehab and Holidays

Since we’ve been spending all our free time working to rid the yard of the gargantuan brush piles, my art space is crying for some attention.  The only thing I’ve had a moment to play with are some iphone apps that Patty and Kim recommended.  All the photos in this post were created with distressed FX…

My friend’s fabulous adobe house


Every night we sat on those chairs and watched the hummingbirds and the sunset.


The guest house/art studio where we got to stay. Ooh la la and oh so wonderful, thanks Linda and Jim again, and again, and again.


Life’s a beach – or the arroyo/wash that runs between the house and guest house where you can sit in your sand chair as long as it’s not monsoon season.


My friend Linda, getting ready to take us up the mesa for a little hike – she loves hot pink!


Linda and her beloved cowboy with views to the mountains beyond. You can see both houses down below.


The route we hiked.  Not so hard really.


My very large hat, which I have come to love.  I wore it in the hot springs at Ojo Caliente, I wore it mowing the lawn at the farmhouse yesterday.  It shades well.


The goofy doll hand Linda found in Kelly Moore’s Dark Bird Palace which he gave to her and she made me photo it in the ladies room at the Santa Fe Visitor’s Center.  It would have been really funny if someone had walked in!!!


The hand enjoying some refreshment while we explored Canyon Road in Santa Fe….this hand will have more stories to share if Linda let’s me.


The courtyard at Galerie Corazon, quite lovely.


And their marvelous sign….hope you enjoyed the journey. Back to the farmhouse tomorrow to spread mulch hay and plant some seed.

Off to Eclectic Paperie on Thursday for an all day workshop with Seth – for some collage and relaxation doing 52 pick up..I will share later.

    looks amazing. the processing adds an interesting twist to the images. some of the best getaways are when you’re in a completely different climate/environment AND with good friends!

    Never a dull moment with you! I get tired just following you! Your photos are amazing, and I loved following you on your journey! Keep going!
