The Collette's

Mom and dad have been collecting Carol Collette's work for years.  Mom and I are on facebook and one day we discovered that Carol Collette had a facebook page.  Every month she gives away a free hand water colored etching and all you have to do is to "like" it!

Guess what?
We won the September etching!  Isn't it just beautiful!
It's called September II

 When dad used to work in New Haven, he used to spend time in an art shop and he came to love Carol's work - a lot!
 Carol's gorgeous etchings are in many rooms of our house.
 We love each and every one of them!
So when mom won the etching she was thrilled beyond belief!

Thank you so much, Carol!
We just adore our new etching!

So until next time..............

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Cool! We never heard of this Carol lady, but our mom is now going to "like" her on FB too. (\

Mom has been sick since yesterday, so we are making the rounds trying to visit our buddies that we have been neglecting lately. Hope all is well with you all.

We just say a quick Hello!
We were so long not online. Mama's mother has died and there was so much to do.

Mom is soon far away from me and very close to you. But she says, from west to east, it is very far. For me it would not be far. I can run very fast and far. But she takes me along on her journey.
See you soon! Remains faithful to me!

The work of Carol are wonderful!

Sue, we rarely ever used sweet potatoes until I started to cook for Bambi, than having them in the kitchen all the time I started to use them often. I did some looking them up on the web and saw how very nutritional they were!!! Used them ever more then!! Use them all the time now!! Love them so much!!
You welcome Sue!
