My grandmother had magic hands in the garden. My dad said she could shove a broomstick into the ground and make it grow. I never inherited that gene and can't seem to make a garden work no matter what I do.

Your alien photos are hillarious!!!

I would love to be the winner of you beautiful pendant! Check out my blog for my One Year Blogiversary giveaway.

Cat I am so wanting to take your course but I just had back surgery a week ago and need to recover from it first. In the meanwhile I would dearly love to win this beautiful pendant that you are giving away.

Love the piece. It is AWESOME. Hope I am the lucky winner.

My sissy had Nubian goats. They are so wonderful. Love the tree trunk and the aliens. Thank you for a chance to win such a lovely pendant.

Ingrid has a very pretty spot. You two are so funny! Seems like clowning around is a big part of your family tradition!! Got my fab necklace today and put it right on! Got to look spiffy grocery shopping after all. It's really beautiful and you did a fantastic job! xox (maybe I can convince my hubby to let me get some goats!)

Christine said...

Loving your giveaway pendant!! Ingrid's garden is magical - what a beautiful view to wake up to! The goat is too fun - my Mom had friends that had dancing goats (not sure what music they danced to or if they were just a bit nutty!).
Thanks for sharing such fun memories with your sister!

I have a friend with magical hands and I always enjoyed being in her garden very much. It's a beautiful place where I loved to relax. Unfortunately I'm too far away now to just drop by for a short visit. Your sister's garden is such a wonderful place too. Besides the pretty flowers I love that tree guy. Edward is a cutie and you girls look too funny. Both pics made me grin.
I'd be very happy to win your gorgeous pendant.

I have magic hands as long as I don't touch anything once it's planted! I have a container garden in front of my studio and everything does wonderful as long as it's hands off. I may have my son water everything now and again if we go a few weeks without rain (needs watering now-note to self) and he weeds the containers for me (bad back), but that's about all that happens.

Love your creation, Cat!! Wow, that is a beautiful garden! Sometimes, I wish I could live in the east coast, I would have a ton of plants. Arizona is too hot in the summer and everything pretty much dies. But, I can usually revive quite a few of my plants back. Being a plant propagator at a green house for year or two (past job) certainly helped! Love those silly photos! Hugs!

Love the colors in Ingrid's yard and the front porch. Oh, to have a front porch! Is Edward wearing jewelry? He's oh so trendy with that green large link chain. (I'm sure it's for another purpose but I prefer my version.)

The alien photo is too funny. So that's what you look like under your skin.

See you tomorrow!

Whoops, this giveaway almost slipped under my radar and it ends on my birthday...that must be a sign, lol! I love your pendant! I may need some gardening advice from your sister, although I am sure gardening is quite different here in FL. Edward looks like quite the character as do you and your sister in your funny photo! Had a great time hanging out with you and Cat last night and hope to do it again soon :)

Kathy said...

Hi Cat, Your sisters garden is lovely. Enjoying my first visit to your blog. What a beautiful pendant for your give away. I'm so glad you liked my 'Art is You Art' card. I received one of yours - Thank You! Both sides are beautiful - love your collage technique! I didn't get to attend 'Art is You' but it sure was fun to participate in the card exchange they opened up to everyone. I received some fantastic art work.

I don't even know how I ended up here, but I thought this post "Magic Hands and a Giveaway!!" is good. And after I explore the pictures of the masterpieces made by your sister well you may say that she has magic hands...!;) Thank you very much to sharing your thoughts...! Cheers!
