Show and Tell Friday!

Pin It Now!

Welcome to Show and Tell Friday!  This week I'm breaking the rules a bit because I'm going to share something that is not in my home or garden.  Since I shared my trip to Nevada City in my last post I thought I would share today why Mr. C and I took that trip.  We went to go see his friend's wife's open studio that weekend.  Since they are about 2 1/2 hours away from us they suggested that we stay in Nevada City which is not too far from their home. 

Before we went to Nevada City we stopped at Victoria Brooks' studio to see her beautiful work!  She is really an amazing artist! My photographs do not do her work justice, it's so much more beautiful in person! The light in her paintings and the reflection in the water is just amazing! 

You can see more of Victoria's beautiful artwork on her website, just click here


If you are joining in on Show and Tell Friday, please remember that your Show and Tell needs to be something from your home or garden. Please read the Show and Tell Guidelines for step-by-step instructions on how to participate. If you would like to join in, please enter your name and leave your exact Show and Tell blog post link, not just your blog link and as a common courtesy link back to my blog.
