Creative Foundations, Artist Danielle

Image

Danielle painted a beautiful bird

~ the Blue Crowned Crane ~

which was made into a card.

She showed me her design,

proudly telling me it was

hers, on sale for the 

Delaware Arts Festival,

along with many other

artworks on display!

We turned her notecard over,

looking at the picture of

herself. I read aloud

Danielle’s Art Statement:

“I like doing art because it lets

me express myself. I like 

painting, drawing, performing.

I like to talk with my friends

and family. My favorite thing 

to do is draw animals. 

Creative Foundations

makes me very happy.”

My friend, Jenny, who taught

reading to children with 

learning disabilities

bought some cards

and so did I. 

Danielle is good friends with Amber.

Amber painted my youngest 

daughter the beautiful bold, 

black, gray and white rose.

She had been so excited when

I “commissioned her!”

It is hanging in Felicia’s bedroom.

At times it is hung over her 

white painted brick fireplace.

I’m hoping that the rose 

painting will be on a 

link found below.

This is my photograph

of Danielle Gould 

taken 5/20/17.

Please keep this fine organization

or similar programs in mind

when contemplating Art

and supporting positive

places to express 

themselves

who may be

differently 

made.

The M & M girls + Hendrix

Image


After being such excellent 

blogging friends, your

reward is to see the M & M

girls with little brother,

toddler Hendrix!

All enjoyed soft serve

chocolate ice cream.

Our very favorite ice cream “palace”

is called Dairy Point, a family

run business where my 

personal favorite is a

scoop of hard butter pecan,

hot caramel, real whipped cream,

home toasted pecans and 

a cherry on top!

🍒

Please “dish!”

What is your favorite flavor?

Does anyone still order 

a banana split?

Thursday’s Doors ~ Kona Ice truck

Image

Believe it or not, there was a much

longer line of hospital staff 

standing here, before I 

mentioned that I hoped no

one minded if I took their picture.

Anyway, here’s one hospital nurse

and the Tropical Shaved Kona Ice

purveyor extraordinaire.

Even she was “shy!”

Here’s a friendly host,

Norm Frampton, whose

Thursday’s Doors feature is

quite popular and a worldwide

phenomenon, irresistible to

doors’ (of any kind) viewers!

Hope you check out the variety here:

Happy doors’ excursions!

Thursday’s Doors ~ summer means “Fun in the Sun!”

Image

The Kona Ice truck goes to our local

hospitals, parks, and schools.

Yes, it is a symbol of summer!

No, it is still May and spring here.

I went to Ohio Health to pick 

up knee x-rays for Felicia.

There was the Kona Ice truck!

I like the piña colada flavored ice

or coffee cappuccino ice with

a squirt of vanilla added.

This is a Double Doors post!

“What?” you ask.

The “real” door where

the driver gets in and out, is

to the left. The “bamboo” door

where you imagine it opening

and allowing the Kona Penguin

to disembark makes my silly,

childish face, “Smile!”  It also

brings shaved snow cones

to my grandchildren’s

schools on certain days

where lucky kids purchase

fruit flavored juicy ices.

This is one of two door posts

and the next one had 10 adult

nurses and hospital staff,

standing in line.

Only one remained once

I mentioned, “I’m taking a picture!”

You would have giggled at how fast

they scattered, hiding behind bushes.

Here’s a jewel of a door wrangler, who

may enjoy a fruit flavored snow cone.

Please check out Norm Frampton’s

Hope you don’t mind looking at the

window with the purveyor of

frozen sugared confections.

Come on, summer!
