Alphabet Art

If you take pictures with your iPhone you may want to try the AfterLight app.  It’s really fun!  There’s a lot you can do with it, including what I call alphabet art.  I made the following photos in just a few minutes using this app. L is for Lily M is for Michaela A is […]

DeAnna Dodson - Oh, that’s so cute!

Do they have a PC app for that?

July 3, 2013 - 9:59 am

Hildy - I recieved my Stitch Zakka copy yesterday, great book!
My cats are cowards, too, every year on Silvester they’re in the basement. Can’t stand the noise and smell I think.

July 3, 2013 - 11:05 am

SuzK - what a great app! I too received my Stitch Zakka yesterday from Amazon. Love your little bunny with his cup! My cat will disappear as well – she will come check on me as I watch from my porch and try to convince me it isn’t safe and then she’ll take off … she’s done her part!

July 3, 2013 - 2:32 pm

Beth - Love this idea for the alphabet! We have three scaredy cats. We always stay home with them at night on the 4th so they feel more secure. How is Pumpkin dong? I hope he has settled in!

July 3, 2013 - 3:55 pm

Linda - Hugs for Marcell.

July 3, 2013 - 7:46 pm

Joanne Moore - Happy Fourth Anne! Last year I spent the night of the 4th in the laundry room with the dryer running and a cd playing while holding Miss CindyBear Airedale extrordinaire. She was not a happy camper. Yesterday my hubby went to the vet for a night night relaxer in the event our neighbors go nuts with the fireworks again. Poor pets. The darn fireworks are illegal here but that doesnt matter to most.
Oh my gosh that app is darling for the alphabet photos. Thanks for sharing. Your grand daughters are so beautiful. I received my BunnyHill order today. I am going to enjoy the evening reading thru my new patterns. Hooray!

Marcia - I’m sitting up with our Beagle Butch. he’s shaking like a leaf in a wind storm. It’s going to be a long couple nights. Hugs for Marcel and many warm thoughts for your healing heart missing Bitsy.

Pam - Hi Anne!
We moved our daughter Madeleine into her new flat just west of Wrigleyville yesterday. She begins a new life after college with a job at Discover. So exciting but Mom’s a little apprehensive with her girl in a big city (she grew up in a small town in Indiana). We took her grocery shopping in the smallest Walmart I’ve ever seen — and out for Turkish food last night. Even though DH is a diehard Sox fan from the South Side, we enjoy the area! We spent last 4th of July coming to the City to go to a Sox game and moving Madeleine out of her apartment after her internship downtown a little south if here.

Our plans are to go to our lake cottage tonight in northern Indiana – it’s on a small island. We take our pontoon boat to the west basin to watch fireworks. However I’m missing our first grandbaby, Henry Creighton who is 6 weeks old so I may lobby to go home to see him in his 4th if July onesie I bought for him before he was born! His mama thinks he’s too young to be on the island!

Our cats (Moselle and Beulah) sleep through the fireworks – years ago when we first owned the island, we had 14 guests and we had a tornado! We survived but lost 5 trees and it moved the house 2″! Our Labrador, Jemima Jane, was terrified of storms after that (so was I as I grew up outside of Phoenix and we didn’t have tornadoes or blizzards) — I had to put her in our bathroom with the fan on and lights out with fireworks and storms!

We had the excessive heat and drought last year. It is always cool on the island with breezes but it was so hot, we didn’t go up to the island very much. It’s much better this year. I hope it is better for you and all our friends out west — the fires are so scary.

mimi'sdarlins - Priceless, to be sure! She is definitely not sure whether she wants to be in this big chair in this big place, without her daddy by her side :) I love this, and I love that she’s sitting in the chair that matches her outfit so perfectly! Thanks so much for sharing your sweet angel with us. I agree, technology is grand!

February 24, 2012 - 5:31 pm

Letty - Oh that is too funny! However, I’d risk getting pretty sick to have some more lovely plates like those!

March 1, 2012 - 8:12 am

Cheryl - MA - Me…oh no, no, no I don’t have any teeth!!!! You’re surely mistaken!!!

Lily’s at Grandma’s!

One thing for sure, it’s all about baby at Bunny Hill!  As I look around there are baby things everywhere.  Amazing how these tiny little beings bring such life to a family!  Just look at her, isn’t she precious? To say I’m having fun with my granddaughter would be an understatement. At 3 months old […]

I have a 2, 4 and 7 year old and I can’t believe the oldest has been around that long. I remember holding this tiny little boy and now he is correcting me!!! Enjoy. She is beautiful.

Donna - I know exactly how you feel about having a grandbaby in your home – especially one who lives far distant from you. My first and only Grand daughter is nearing her 1 birthday this month and she lives in North Carolina, half of the way across the U.S. from me in the midwest. Enjoy Lily as she and you get acquainted.

Jean - My friend Nikki went up to British Columbia for years with her dad. He fished and she quilted. They went to the same spot on Vancouver Island and the same pair of Eagles came back year after year to nest. She said it was wonderful.

July 15, 2011 - 10:16 am

Judy C in NC - I watched a live stream of an Eagle’s nest in Hampton Roads, Virginia this Spring and I have never been so interested in anything for a long time. They are absolutely beautfiul creatures and for them to have seen all this in person has to be one of the best memory makers. Thank you so much for sharing these pictures. Judy C in NC

July 15, 2011 - 10:26 am

Sunny - These photos are absolutely awesome! I watch an Eagle Cam near here each spring, from the time eggs are laid until the eaglets fledge. So interesting to watch. Thanks so much for sharing!!

Anne - Jean that would be just heaven. The same Eagles every year? Amazing!

July 15, 2011 - 11:52 am

July 15, 2011 - 12:13 pm

Louise - What beautiful shots your son captured. Living less than a mile from the British Columbia border eagles are a daily occurance and one we never tire of. Bet that salmon is going to taste fabulous.. Thanks for sharing..

July 15, 2011 - 12:21 pm

Els Lunenberg - Wow Ann, thanks for sharing.
8 years ago I was in BC Canada and saw the bold Eagles many times, but this was awsome!

July 15, 2011 - 3:32 pm

Charlsey - So majestic! No wonder it is our national bird! Thank you for sharing. Your son captured their beauty and awesomeness!

July 15, 2011 - 7:17 pm

Mary on Lake Pulaski - Magnificent photos Anne! Thank for sharing these great prize worthy photos!

July 15, 2011 - 8:02 pm

Andrea - Seeing these pictures sure makes me miss home (born and raised in BC, but now living in Alberta). In veterinary school, I belonged to a wild bird club and we treated many Bald and Golden Eagles. When we had to catch them in their enclosure, for treatments, we had to wear a full face shield, protective clothing and massive leather gloves. Even protected like that, they were so frightening as they are huge, and their talons and beaks are incredibly powerful. Then imagine trying to collect a blood sample while having to hold one down….yikes! I’ll take a scratching/hissing cat over that any day! An incredible creature!

July 16, 2011 - 7:15 am

Barb - Wonderful photos! (I think the experience of seeing them in person was worth every penny.)

They really are magnificent creatures, aren’t they?

Thanks for sharing these pictures with us.

July 16, 2011 - 8:38 am

Anne - It must have taken two people! I can’t even imagine being that close to one and trying to help it. What an experience that must have been.

Hope you are loving your new home!

July 16, 2011 - 9:08 am

mimi'sdarlins - Anne, your son’s photos are amazing….I’m forwarding your blog to my hubby :)
Oh, to see this magnificent bird in motion, it must have been an experience! Thank you for sharing.

July 16, 2011 - 4:00 pm

Sandra - a What lovely birds I remember seeing them when we took a trip to B.C. a few years ago. I love Salmon, did he get enough to pay for trip? Salmon is really good for you especially B.C. salmon. Hope you enjoy, I am sure every time your husband eats it ,it will bring back memories.

Nancy C. in Utah - Wow Anne! Gorgeous photos. They are such majestic birds, I never get tired of seeing them on the rare occasion I catch a glimpse. When my hubby lived in Alaska, he got a lot of photos of bald eagles at the rescue site somewhere around Anchorage. There were always dozens of them there at any given time, but they only had a few permanent residents that sustained injuries that kept them from hunting for themselves. Otherwise they were rehabilitated and released. Thanks so much for sharing these beautiful shots. Hugs…
