Sunday Sketches and Shopping with my Sisters!

This is the sketch of the day. Lately have been trying to figure out some kind of Mother and child kind of painting.  I guess it is that time of year.  So this is one of the sketches that I did.  I love her baby. It's all kind of sweetness.
Come join us at  for the Sunday Sketches.

Also yesterday we went to the West Reading On the Avenue Open house shopping with the Sisters. What a great day we had.
Jamie and Me (See I do exist)

Heidi and Jamie (I don't know why we did not ask to have someone take the picture so we all could be in the picture.

We had lunch at West Reading Tavern, a dirty martini, shopping at Curious?? and Hello Bluebird , 2 Dirty martini's at The Wineroom were we meet a really cool bartender/artist Albert and some really funny ladies, and then dinner at Good Eatz(Oh so good)   
Heidi got one of these lovely sunflowers for me for Christmas from Curious??. Shhhh Its a surprise.

One of the owners of Curious?

The Ave at night. These pictures do not show how pretty it is
Ave at night. Ahhhhhh

These pictures do not do it justice. Its so pretty.

We met up with my  Nelly Bell. (Love of my life. Little girl) and went to Haute Chocolate Cafe.

Wow. So good. These cupcakes are the best!!!! I am not kidding!!They are so moiste and gooey!!!! Great way to end the day.
