some tea with that sugar?
Have you done anything with the fountain? If so, please show!
linda, i haven't done anything with it...yet. i have it by my backdoor with a cluttering of succulents on it.
If you could have dinner with anyone in the world, who would it be and why?
if it could be with anyone, it would be with my three children and my maternal grandmother, julia vaughn posey. she passed away a few months before i got married, so they never had the chance to soak her up and leave her embrace, smelling like emeraude.
my grandmother was the most influential person in my life. she and my grandfather (who was a county commissioner) owned a renthouse (which had originally been a funeral home) in my hometown of san marcos. they occupied the bottom floor and rented the top floor & the side apartments out to college students. i rented one when i was getting my bfa. she also supplemented their income with her oil paintings and did the artshow circuit. when my mother was younger, she also ran a tea room in the bottom floor of their home for college professors & townfolk to have lunch each day.
she shook her moneymaker and worked with what God gave her...and she encompassed her seven grandchildren into her life without ever making us feel like we were a burden. we grew up feeling that we were blessings, and loved little blessings at that.
i just wish my kids had the opportunity to have hung out with her on her porch swing with a glass of her iced tea with their sugar.
