Halloween Art Swap

I was thrilled to receive these beautiful trades from my friend Sandra. The handcrafted ornament has such character, and I love the artist trading card because it's three-dimensional. ~Designs copyright Sandra Caldwell~

Here's a picture of the two items that I sent to Sandra for the trade. As you can see, we both had candy corn on our minds! ~Designs copyright Liz Revit~

Thank you, Sandra, for allowing me to use these pictures that you've taken and have also posted on your Web site.

The Stratford Diner Gets My Vote!

Save for the ridiculous, new hike in tolls ($8.75 from NEPA to South Jersey), it was a glorious morning.
I've always admired this quaint, little house.

When in South Jersey, a visit to the Stratford Diner is a must. They have the best Spanakopita (Greek spinach pie). I love the fact that you can order this luscious treat for breakfast. Yum! Their hot chocolate is also smooth and creamy, and they always serve it with whipped cream.
If you're into burgers, you won't be disappointed with this grilled delight. John always orders extra pickles, and I get to eat the coleslaw. We both love "real" food for breakfast.

Here's the Stratford Diner's address. They're open 24 hours. Be sure to check them out if you're in South Jersey. The service is great, the food is outstanding, and they're always pleasant.

Love the blue sky! As always, it's great to be back in The Garden State.

A Warm Autumn Day

After parking my car, I turned to see a wonderful, ominous sky behind me on Franklin Street.

Here's another interesting look at those dark clouds.

Looking east, it didn't look so bad. When I got into my studio, it started to pour. At least it's warm outside rather than cold and damp.

Halloween ATC & Ornament Swap

My good friend Sandra set up a Halloween artist trading card and ornament swap. When I receive my goodies in the mail, I'll be sure to post them. Now I have to get to work on my creations.
For future ATC swaps, be sure to stop by Sandra's blog.
