6"x6"  oil painting just finished today! I have a couple of commissions to paint and this is one. This little guy is cooling off in the surf, labs love the water don't they? So cute! This will go out as soon as it is dry. I want to get back to my hearts but first things first! Tomorrow starting the next painting and maybe squeeze in a bit of time for a heart!!

Egg Separator

I do other things besides hearts and painting altho lately it doesn't seem that way!  Today is my brother in law's birthday and I made him a cake. He is a special guy and he loves white cake with  fudge frosting. Who doesn't?? Egg whites are asked for and to do that I used my beloved egg separator. My daughter, Amber, as a child many years ago, gave me this egg separator for my birthday. I did alot of baking when I had my little family and made alot of cakes. I have used it over and over again thru the years. It has broken and been repaired with Elmers glue several times. Today making this cake I am reminded of my children,family, the many cakes I've made and  my sweet daughter Amber.  Mmmmm the house is cozy with memories and a cake in the oven.
