*My Crows* *My Art* *My Way*

Hi Everyone!
Hope you're all well!
Fall is for sure in the air! I love being outside at this time! I was getting some gardening done. I have 5 large patches of Russian Sage. Russian Sage is one of my favourite plants. It smells great and it's drought resistant.
It grows very tall. Sometimes you have to stake it. Also, if you let it, it will spread. I have one area, where it keeps spreading and spreading. So, I spent the day, placing rocks and stepping stones in certain areas, so I could get around it.
It doesn't look like much now, because I had to cut some of the plants back, but when it grows in next year, it will look good.
See that part on the right hand side, where the rocks are in a circle. I cut down an old tree, left the stump and let the Russian Sage wrap itself around it.
I got a picture of some of the birds saying hello.
For 3 days, I was designing my new business cards and stickers. As soon as I get them, I will be showing you! Next thing, is getting some of the bags designed!

I did manage to get two paintings finished.

"Wagon Ride" (2.5" x 3.5")
"Spirit Guides" ( 8" x 8")
Big Hugs 😃


  1. I like the sage also.I saw a well manicured raised bed and my first thought was they must trim it a lot

  2. Beautiful thoughts and photos. Greetings and best wishes to you.

  3. Spirit Guides is wonderful, Stacy! It reminds me of Matt's teachings. Wagon Ride is adorable. I've been looking forward to Fall too. It will be nice to get back to hiking again. I see pretty yellow birds in your yard. Beautiful!!!!Hugs!!!

  4. I agree with Blogoratti, dear friend. And your header is VERY bright, cheerful and makes me feel good!

  5. "Spirit Guide" is striking and so different than your usual stuff. I like it a lot.

    I'm looking forward to when Fall as well. My wait is going to be a while, though.

  6. The paintings are both fab and both so different. Love the playfulness of the wagon ride, and the spirit guide really touches my heart. I don't know Russian sage, I will keep an eye out for it. Have a lovely day, BIG hugs my friend, Valerie

  7. The sage is so pretty! I love how you are going to let it wrap around a tree stump. Very cool! Your yard is full of charm. :) The mornings are feeling very fall like. Sock weather! I am loving your new works too Stacy!

  8. Love the sage, it's such a beautiful colour.
    Lovely to see the photo's of your garden, you've been working hard and it's looking good!

    I think your two art pieces are lovely especially 'Wagon Ride' it's so cute.

    Have a lovely weekend

    All the best Jan

  9. I enjoyed seeing pictures of your garden. Love the dragon gargoyle. Wagon Ride is adorable. Reminds me when my girlies were little and would pull each other around the yard in the wagon.

  10. Oooo. Very pretty. I tried to grow Russian Sage once to no luck. Had it in the same pot with something else and it just refused to share even a large space for some reason.

  11. you have such a beautiful yard! I'd want to be out there all day long

  12. Your world is working for you dear Stacy! I am so happy for you! Your art is fantastic and it is great that you will have another avenue to share it with others!
    Love your pretty.
    Take Care My Lovely Friend~

    Big Hugs

  13. I love Russian sage, the softness of the leaf and bloom, the strength of its scent... and the color, so pretty!

    Yay! for new business cards. And for "Spirit Guides"--you know red and black always makes me all happy and stuff!

  14. what a beautiful garden. I adore both paintings too especially spirit guides'. Hugs June x

  15. Russian sage is so pretty. Looks like you are doing some great gardening work. I agree- fall is definitely in the air. Last night it was crisp out!

    Beautiful job on your paintings. :)

    Can't wait to see the stickers and business cards. Fun!

  16. Ohhh that sage is awesome. I love sage any kind. Your garden looks wonderful. So are you set up now for the clothing? Send me a link please. Your art just gets better and better. Love it and thank for all the positive energy.

  17. I love the smell of sage - I use to have it in my yard before we sold several years ago. I always love your crows.

    Fall - yes...just yesterday I noticed some leaves beginning to change over in Lake Arrowhead - yet nothing here yet - we are a few hundred feet lower in altitude so we are not as chilly at night yet. Can't wait for the full explosion of color.

  18. I love Russian sage, the softness of the leaf and bloom, the strength of its scent...


  19. Hi, Stacy! I love Russian sage. It grows really well around here. It is such a pretty plant. I like your two paintings. I am amazed that you can paint on such a tiny canvas as in "Wagon ride." I can barely sign my name in a space that size. LOL Have a good one, my friend!

  20. Wonderful wonderful art! Your garden is also beautiful.


Thank you for taking the time to comment! I'm very grateful! Your words are very special to me! Big Hugs!
