Grow Your Blog Party!


Welcome to Vicki's of 2 Bags Full Blog Grow Your Blog Party; I'm so glad you're here! Hundreds of bloggers are joining in on the fun of finding new blogs and meeting new blogging friends. It's going to be a grand party...so, welcome to Grow Your Blog Party and Fox Hollow Tales.
My blog is about my life outside of selling real estate, which includes life at home, gardening, cooking, decorating and entertaining.


creating mixed media art,


traveling to art events around the country & taking art & jewelry classes,



I enjoy sharing my travels with you, since I have been fortunate to travel to many interesting destinations. And I love taking photographs. 


From time to time I love to give some tales of my Burmese kitties, Chopin and Monet

I hope that you will come back and visit me often. Please take a few minutes to look around here, and perhaps even choose to follow me. In appreciation to those that sign up as my new followers and leave a comment, I am going to give away a piece of my newly created pieces of jewelry. It is a multi-strand necklace with a vintage lock adorned with a vintaged jewel piece. I hope you are the winner! I think you will enjoy.

I'm visiting from the GYB party and there are so many talented crafters participating.
Your kitties are adorable.

Claire said...

So nice to meet you! Your blog looks lovely - I've become a follower and will be back on a less frantic day...
I fear I won't be able to wear your lovely necklace, but I wanted to comment anyway :)
I love what I can see of your mixed media art - do you have an online shop, or do you just sell at art fairs?
And your kitties are the same gorgeous glossy back as our Molly-cat - I should have posted a photo of here, she's such a pretty girl :)

I'm an enthusiastic GYB visitor...and ever so happy to get acquainted with you! I think your cats' names are inspired! (Franki Kohler @frankikohler.com has an adorable dog whose name is Mendelsohn...I bet he'd fit right in with your two artistic critters) Your painting of the lovely lady in red -- is she Rose Red from the fairy tale? -- is so vivid. Your creativity is beautifully showcased in your blog. I'll be a frequent visitor.

visiting via Vicki's GYBP...I'm late to respond to your note...I apologize...tremendously cold and my old bones ache from farm chores. give me a bit more time, I'm good for my word but I am *exceedingly* slow...unless it's tending to the animals and the farm.

Thank you. Love love, Andrew. Bye.

Hello Teresa
It's lovely to meet you at Vicki's party!
Reading everyone's posts it's really amazing how similar we all are - basically we love our families and enjoy being creative - we're the same the world over!

Your two Burmese cats are so sweet and I can tell you spoil them!!
Travel is a part of my life too - it opens up a whole new world - as does blogging!

What a beautiful giveaway necklace you've created - I'm keeping my fingers crossed!

I'll be back to see you again once the party winds down.

I'm now following you Teresa.
I would love you to come over and meet me and enter my Giveaway - a vintage fabric and lace collage.
Have fun and enjoy the party!
Hugs

Hello, Teresa!

I am visiting you from South Carolina with Vicki's Grow Your Blog party. Your blog is lovely. I, too, am a lady of many interests, which include, of course, my family. God has blessed us with 2 daughters and 5 much-loved grandchildren. I am a life-long crafter. It is my belief that we are never too old to learn new things.

Your feline family members are beautiful. I noticed one has green eyes and the other's appear to be an amber color.

I will be following your posts through Google Friend Connect. If you can find time, I hope you will visit me over at Mimi Mine!

lynn cockrell said...

I began a comment to you earlier, but it seems to have gotten lost in cyberspace. It has been nice visiting you through Vicki's GYB party. I am an avid crafter, love to sew and adore going places, seeing and learning new things.

Your feline family members are beautiful. I notice that they have different color eyes, one cat has green and the others appear to be an amber hue.

I am signing up to follow you with Google Friend Connect. Perhaps you can come to visit me over at Mimi Mine. Have a beautiful weekend!

Dawn Castrova said...

Wow I love my visit. Didn't realize that there is so much going on in cyber world. Forgive me for coming to the party at the last minute, But 600 blog reading was a little tasking. I wanted to read and get to know the girls so I did read everyone's bio. Your my 584 blog and 24 hours left to go. If you like come visit My site http://overboardcreations.blogspot.com/and contact info is http://ovr_brd@yahoo.com I believe inspiration comes from all facets of life even knowing the great people out there with wisdom and knowledge the do's and don'ts and even the wonders of life from a personal point of view. I liked you following you on goggle connect and Bloglovin you. hope to see you in the cyber neighborhood I am new to blogging so I don't have a lot posted because I got side tract with GYB party. Kind of felt it was important to have some one read my silly chatter. I can't remember a time I didn't dabble in something creative. I tried a little of everything. But, my new love these days is Card making I just love it.
