Janet Biles Art featured at Takoda's Restaurant in Rainbow, Oregon:


When Cary and I stopped by the local pizza place/restaurant next to our RV park, there were all these beautiful ceramic tiles for sale.  My friend Sandy had helped the artist, Janet Biles, cut slabs of tile to make more of these on Monday.

I don't know Janet, but I really liked her art and thought that I would share it with you on here.  If you would like to contact Janet, her email is Janetbiles@aol.com  





















Enjoy your day!  I will be back soon with some very beautiful pictures of the places that we visited last week.

Hugs,

Kathy M.

Up the McKenzie ...

 
 Hi!  Just a short little note to let you know that we are enjoying our trip so far.  We arrived on Sunday afternoon and have just been relaxing.  

Yesterday we went out to breakfast at The Rustic Skillet , went to the store, and walked around our new neighborhood.  I took these pictures from my phone, put them on FB and then copied them into Picasa.  Where there is a will, there is a way!  I took many more photos with my big camera, but will wait until we get home to process those.  



Cary is looking handsome on the trail.  There are quite a few places to take a walk around here, and there are beautiful streams and ponds.



The manager of the RV park, Jim, has a green thumb.  This garden was new to us, as we haven't been here for nearly two years.  There are flowers, veggies and art on the other side of the lake.  I'll do a whole post just on the garden soon...



We walked over to the river, a couple of blocks away and I really like how the moss hung down from this tree:



Today we are going to do some exploring around the area, and my friend Sandy is going to stop by to say hello.  Tomorrow, my kids and grandson are coming up for dinner; they live about 45 minutes down the road.

It is supposed to start raining hard tomorrow for a day or two, but we are set up fine in the 5th wheel.  This RV park has full hook-ups, cable and wi-fi, and we have an electric fireplace so it shouldn't bother us any.

I hope that you guys are all having a wonderful week.

Hugs,

Kathy M.

Oh, I won a gift certificate from Carol Kilgore a couple of days ago! Thank you, Carol. You can read about her and her brand new book, Secrets of Honor, on Hart's blog by clicking here.

The Native American Display at The Maryhill Museum, Washington




When we were on our little trip last week, we spent time exploring the exhibits at the Maryhill Museum.  In the basement of the building, there is a huge Native American display.  Here are some of the pictures that I took (I took pictures of the black and white ones and cropped them down, and that is why I signed my name to them):




































  ... here are a few more:







It was hard to choose which ones to post, because I took about 75 or 80 pictures of this area.   A few years ago, I did a post about Indian beadwork with pictures from The High Desert Museum, if you want to take a look.

We are heading out in the morning for another local trip to one of my favorite spots in the world, the Upper McKenzie River.  I can't wait for those pictures.  See you soon!

Hugs,

Kathy M.
