I Like Thursday

Welcome to this week's list of likes... I love the cloud show here! For a painter who takes note of light and shadow, it's an ever changing show.
I like Milo's little spaniel friend who always plays with him at the fence when we go for walks
I like the lantern I found on sale at Michaels and might put one of those battery candles in it for Fall
I liked the wonderful casseroles we've been making with our vegetables and herbs, Finally coming ripe.I described it in Monday's post if you're interested in the recipe.
right up in the mountains, but HOT HOT HOT!
We loved the fine craft show in Golden CO last weekend, and I did an artist interview for you later, but for now, how about this quote by Anaiis Nin
the artist is Cassady Harries from Layton UT
"I have no fear of depths and a great fear of shallow living.”

I was stunned by this artist's work, giant artwork with MANY crystals and gemstones embedded in the  work
I had to snap a shot of the texture, and giant turquoise on the piece compared to the wee chips in my anniversary ring.
amethyst crystals too

yep, those are geode crystals, some amethyst some quartz. Holy cats!
the artist
They sell for about $5000 each and people were lined up to purchase them! Wish it was in our budget!
Loved seeing the gliders leaping from the mountain tops!

I loved going to the Botanic Gardens to see the brilliant water lily exhibit, and took awesome pictures to share, again a bit later as it will be a post by itself!
I loved watching this plein air painter at work too.

I liked this site that gave you creativity prompts based on healing

Milo's Moments
Hi Y'all... come on in, I'm having a little rest. I love that I discovered how to get up in the chair in the family room, now there is one for each of us... so cosy
 Wonder how Daddy fits in one?? Not my problem, he should be up chasing me around the house trying to get my toy anyway! BOL
I liked going to the big craft show last weekend with my pawrents... and meeting lots of dogs and kids.
Mostly people rather watch me than look at art, right?
Last week, I was relaxing on the porch when Mama said Moose was coming over! What!?
She's a year younger than I am and a good playmate! She is rough though, and sometimes I have to call uncle to get her off me...
so we'll wrestle then run, then play "NO MY TEETH are bigger!" for a while, then rest a little
some times we look around the yard together, but when someone walks by, I'm always on duty 24/7 after all like any first responder, and I bark them off, she runs to Mama because she's not a guard dog like me. I love her even though she's a little bigger than I am. Now, after you bark hello at mama, please go see her friends who kept a list of their likes this week!

  1. ooh that are wonderful things... we are fans of lanterns too!!! and we like that Moose a lot, we would love to play with her... till she says uncle (or aunt?)

  2. What a couple of pals Milo and Moose are!! LOL! Great photos of them playing! I love your post and all the photos of the sky and craft show. Stay cool and have a great week!

  3. Hi LeeAnna! Those fairs you go to always looks so fun. It's hard to believe that Labor Day is just around the corner. EEK! Milo looks so very comfortable in that chair. I'm surprised he just now figured out how comfy it is! ~smile~ Roseanne

  4. What stunning sky pictures--don't you just love those colors one facing into the next? Sigh--oh for a fabric like that huh? But then, who could even cut into it lol hugs, Julierose

  5. Wow, those sky pictures are so gorgeous. I really like the art with the gem stones embedded. And the picture of the spaniel nose through the fence made me smile. My husband had a Brittany spaniel when we first met, long ago. Hope you have a wonderful Thursday!

  6. Those art pieces were amazing with the stones and crystals. I wonder how she attaches them. The sky is so interesting and never looks the same twice. But as I look out my office window this morning all I see is fog.

  7. What a great post! Your rings look really pretty, no matter how wee the pieces.But my gosh, those art pieces are magnificent. You find the most amazing things to share. I love that quote and will have to steal it for my notebook.
    Milo's kept so busy at your house!

  8. Oh those clouds! I neeed that lantern. That crystal art is so beautiful and I can't imagine how much work went into tat art. It's hard to believe Milo fits in that chair. Very cute.

  9. Those stone sculptures are fabulous! I haven't ever seen anything like that! Moose looks a bit like my Blue- I'm glad Milo has some friends to rumpus with. Blue and Bentley are coming with me to my sister's this weekend, so Blue will be able to have lots of playtime with his best friend Auto....

  10. I like Thursdays too and I really like it when Milo is part of the post.

    Have a fabulous Thursday. Scritches to Milo. ♥

  11. Great sky photos! Looks like you enjoyed the art show in Golden, too. I love the picture of Milo in the chair - it's a perfect fit!

  12. I see a puppy in that cloud. My niece has just started college at the Mines in Golden. I'll let you know if we're ever there for some reason. $5000 -- yikes. Sure sounds like a fun art show though! Lots of good likes, thanks for sharing!

  13. I love the beautiful sky pictures. The clouds are always fun to watch. I love those art pieces made with crystals. So pretty! You always find very unique items at the craft fairs. I love seeing them too! Milo looks quite comfy in the chair! I hope he shares with you!

  14. That fine craft show looks like it was lots of fun, the mermaid is pretty cool too. Hey Milo, you and Moose sure have a good time but you shouldn't call her your uncle MOL! Thanks for joining the Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!

  15. I love seeing Milo and his dog friend :) I am such a dog person! Thanks for linking up today and always. I appreciate it!!!!

  16. That craft show looks incredible! What amazing art! I would have loved it all! Can't wait for the arts and craft shows to start here!

  17. Love Milo in that chair. That artwork is beautiful!

  18. So much beauty in one post! That chair is the perfect size for you, Milo.

  19. Beautiful skies. I really like the second one with those dark swooping clouds. The photo of Whitten looking through the fence made me laugh!

  20. Great likes. I love clouds, shadows, light and different scenery. The pieces with the geodes, crystals and turquoise...just wow!

  21. Beautiful artwork from the craft festival. The Foothills generally stay fairly warm, you need to get up much higher to find a respite from the relentless days of 90's. Happy weekend.

  22. Hello, cute captures of your Milo and other furbabies. I love the gemstone artwork, that is really cool. Thank you for linking up! Happy Saturday, enjoy your weekend. PS, thank you for the visit and comment.
