Combing our talents!!

My husband and I love entertaining, decorating, & filling our home with love, family, & friends!

We opened our barn this past week to share our love of food & art with family and friends - what a fun, successful day!!

We had hand scrubs, note cards, canvases, beach rocks with quotes, scarves, baby blankets crocheted with love...


Refurbished furniture...

...and lots of soups&sauces to sample & go home with!!


We ate, drank, shopped, laughed, and hugged at the end of a wonderful day! It's so good to have friends to share your happy moments with - our barn is always open!


Find your happy place!!

The MORE of Soups & Sauces has been busy...

Well, we've been busy being creative in this house!! {love it!}

First, I finished a painting that I was hired to do for a baby girl's nursery...it's being shipped to another state- so exciting!!

My husband whipped up a couple batches of his amazing, homemade Blueberry/Cinnamon & Peach/Ginger jam. All I can say is YUM!!

I finally sat down in my studio and painted the beach rocks that I've been collecting- great for paper weights, inspiration, doorstops, or simply decoration on a table top. {I have beach rocks everywhere!} They're packaged & ready for sale and gift giving!!


 

I finished up a few more small canvases - a couple friends have ordered them for gifts- thank you!!

Finally ~ I love that while I ws painting, my son was sketching next to me! Love him!!

It was a great weekend, full of creativity!!

Blueberry goodness...


It all began with picking fresh blueberries! From there, we washed them, mashed them, & cooked them up {my husband did the cooking part}, filled the jars, baked the jars and jam to seal them...


...and voila!! Homemade blueberry/cinnamon jam!! ~Soups,Sauces & More~

Enjoy the berries of summer!

Art inspires art!!

We took a trip to our local art museum today ~ one of our summer bucket list items to do. We had a fabulous time checking out all the exhibits for a few hours, and then hit up an ice cream shop on our way home {yum}!!

When we got home, I just needed to paint!

Here's one of my creations. Then, I had a few other canvases that needed finishing touches, so they got finished as well...

Oops, upside down- I think you get the picture!
Anyway, some are for sale, some are gifts. Can't wait to share them all with others!!
Those of you who live nearby...watch your emails for exciting news! Our barn will be opening soon(August)...see you there!

Another project...

Old windows- love them!! This one came out of our kitchen, and is being recycled!
I had a brainstorm, got out my sander {thanks to my good friend Alyssa, I asked for a sander for Christmas}, polyurethane, and paint...
First, I thought cream would do, then...I saw this blue-
And, voila... I created a memo board for the kitchen, pantry, wherever you think you need to jot notes or a quote!
Here's a better pic, without me in the reflection...

What do you think? It's for sale! And I've got others that are similar!!

How does your garden grow?!


Our garden is finally beginning to take off! I think our cool spring kept our plants from growing quickly, but the sunshine & heat this week is helping them along...
Our wax beans & arugula...

Notice my son's painted rock tucked in there. 
everything is coming along well- which means we'll be enjoying some delicious dinners straight from the garden ( cooked by my husband of course) very soon! 

Enjoy summer, & your garden veggies!!

Ahhhh, summer!

Summer....flowers in bloom, sprinklers on, reading a good book in the sun...

there's simply more time to enjoy the things you love in the summer.
