So for today, I'd like to talk about my talented baby sister, Elisabeth. She's not much of a baby, and in fact, is expecting her own baby in two months. Nevertheless, she'll always be the baby of my family and so she's stuck with the title. Anyway, Elisabeth is an amazing artist, who started painting masterpieces around the age of 10... which made me realize that even though I enjoyed art and might have been better at it than the average bear, it was definitely not my area of expertise. She's now a graphic designer but still does amazing water colors that I hope she starts to sell again some time soon. On top of that, she's found yet another talent and passion... pottery. My sister
This Bleeding Heart Vase is Gorgeous!
I can think of several people in my life with an affinity toward acorns.
Sweet Pine Cones
And this last piece got me thinking about Colorado. (Well, that and the fact that my cousin, Emily, gets to go Colorado... lucky, lucky girl.) Colorado's been on the brain a lot the past couple of weeks. It's my absolute favorite vacation spot- maybe it's due to fact I spent so many weeks there on family vacations growing up, maybe it's due to the cooler weather in the middle of the miserable Kansas heat, or maybe it's due to the majesty of God's handiwork. Anyway, looking at this Pine Cone Vase made me want more things Colorado. So, here's my treasury for the week, visit it in person so you can take a closer look at some of these sweet little things... most of them are relatively affordable... most. Not all. And maybe if you're like me and have Colorado on the brain, but aren't sure you'll be able to see it in person this summer, you can at least have a little piece of Colorado in your home.
