Thursday Art Date With Rain ... Cake


Marie -Antoinette, The Queen of France during the French Revolution ... As the story goes, "Let Them Eat Cake" was Marie-Antoinette's response upon being told that her starving peasant subjects had no bread.

When we lived on the lake, there was a bakery call "Lovin'

Oven" in town that made the best cakes and decorations (above and below) ...

 This cake was made for the Chicago Flower and Garden Show that is held once a year at Navy Pier.  Sadly , we don't live close to them any more ... but, on the other hand, it is probably a good thing as I am trying to diet to lose my Covid lock down fat 😝  All for now ... Hope you are all doing well and getting your vaccines ... it is important that everyone get their vaccine, right?

Thursday Art Date With Rain ... Gates & Fences

Click to enlarge

I have pictures of fences and then I have pictures with fences ... and I know I have many more, but I got tired of looking :)  and I am guessing you will be tired of looking too :)  The kitty in the title is our little Buffy Boo escape artist.  We rescued her from outside and it took her a few years to be content with staying inside with the other kitties.  She is a cuddly purr box at this point :)

Thursday Art Date With Rain ... Future

I look to my Grandchildren for their future.  Above is my son's youngest who is in middle school.  I see her graduating from college some day and having a wonderful future of her own choosing.

Below is my son's oldest who just graduated from college in Pre-Vet and is in the process of applying for Vet School.   I see her future as a loving and caring animal advocate and a wonderful Veterinarian.  


At my  age who knows what the future will bring, but as a retired Nurse, Grandmother, Mother and Wife, I am guessing my future will be more like relaxing and enjoying my family ... and doing art for Rain's Thursday Art Date, of course :)

Thursday Art Date With Rain ... Coils


Pictures taken at the 1915 Fish & Wildlife Expo

This has been a busy week for me so all I could come up with was some coiling pictures.  Hope I can do better next week.
Until then, enjoy the Spring that is upon us :)

Thursday Art Date With Rain ... Evening



I heard this wonderful song many times in my home as a child ... yes, I know, I am dating myself :)

I usually think of evening as a relaxing time, but in reality it can be a very busy time.  I have chosen pictures that show both.  Now, since it is evening here, I think I will go relax in my favorite chair and watch a good mystery :)
