Ladder – Scribble Picnic

A little late for #Scribblepicnic tonight. The word prompt is “ladder”. My excuse is below. We have had quite the week. We left Arizona on the red eye last Tuesday night – arrived Wednesday morning. A little sleepy we were. After a ride from airport to north of Barrie, we had a little nap at our… Continue reading Ladder – Scribble Picnic

Rabbit: Scribble Picnic

Today is #Scribblepicnic. It is a weekly art meet-up to engage and encourage each other, exploring the same theme each week. This week’s theme is “rabbit”. See more at Michael’s blog. We head home on Tuesday and when this post goes live I will have landed in Toronto, ready to head back home to Haliburton. We… Continue reading Rabbit: Scribble Picnic

Grandfather Clock: Scribble Picnic

This week’s Scribble Picnic’s prompt – Grandfather Clock. As I write this I am listening to the bong on our own grandfather clock chime the half hour. Hubby built the cabinet and assembled the clock a couple of years ago. He had plans spread out on our dining room table that would compete with house plans. Pages… Continue reading Grandfather Clock: Scribble Picnic

Boats: Scribble Picnic

Today is #Scribblepicnic day. The prompt is boats. My picture is painted with watercolour pencils. No micron pens today. I don’t come from a boating family. I remember the one and only time being in a boat before I turned 16. We had rented a cottage on an island and with it came a boat.… Continue reading Boats: Scribble Picnic

Fairies: Scribble Picnic

Once again I am joining Scribble Picnic with the word – Fairies. I’m thinking imagination – when I think of fairies. I loved Grimm’s Fairy Tales when I was little. I remember sitting close to my Dad while he would read the stories. Yes they were scary but there was always good that came through.… Continue reading Fairies: Scribble Picnic

Scribble Picnic: Lantern

This week’s prompt at #Scribblepicnic is LANTERN. It’s funny that I love lanterns. We have always had a couple of them around. At our cottage we used them quite a bit when the power went out. Learning to trim the wick, add the oil and not touch the glass when it has been lit were… Continue reading Scribble Picnic: Lantern

Umbrella: Scribble Picnic

Umbrella: Scribble Picnic Here it is Wednesday and Scribble Picnic day. Our word for this week is UMBRELLA. We have been in Arizona for 4 months and have had the wettest winter ever. That’s not saying we have had much rain but we have had more rain that we have ever had. A few times… Continue reading Umbrella: Scribble Picnic

Cabin: Scribble Picnic

Cabin: Scribble Picnic This week the word for Scribble Picnic is CABIN. I thought of the cottages we have in Haliburton and I think in the US they would be called cabins. In our small Haliburton county of about 17,000 we grow in the summer into 40 000 or more. That’s because of cottages, or… Continue reading Cabin: Scribble Picnic
