Sister Act

After Christmas I posted the following status on `a casarella's Facebook page:

One of the ironies of my blog is the fact that I am the least crafty (&/or artsy) of the bunch when you compare me with my siblings (and siblings-in-law).

I wish I could say that I was exaggerating but I wasn't.  

Don't believe me?  

I give you exhibit A:

Isn't it beautiful?

The picture is called "Hello Down There" and it was painted my by my talented sister, artist and art therapist, Linda Turner.  Inspired by a trip to Italy, this image is also reminiscent of my beloved Southern California with its rolling hills and Cypress Trees.

I was so excited to receive it this holiday season.  My only dilemma is where to put it.  I thought I had the perfect spot but then I found two more perfect spots.

I guess it's a good thing I have so many talented family members...  :)



  1. Wonderful gift! Wonderful artist! Lucky wonderful, you!

  2. I love landscapes - I have a collection of vintage ones! Your sis is very talented - quick hang that up!

  3. Ha, I know exactly what you mean, my sister is a genius at crafting and cooking, but I'm the blogger (although even there I don't pretend to be that good. You came highly recommended by Amy at While wearing heels, and I have been meaning to check you out since. Looking through your blog, she was right!

  4. Beautiful! It's nice to have talented family members!

  5. This is absolutely beautiful! You make quite a talented pair. :)

  6. WOW. That is incredibly beautiful. If you can't find a spot, I am sure I can :)

  7. Gorgeous! I totally am lacking in the artistic department, unlike my husband who can draw anything well!

  8. Amazing! What a gift - both figuratively and literally! Good to know you have plenty of options for placing it - I'm sure it will be a wonderful conversation starter for guests to admire.


Comments let me get to know my readers.

They also make me a do a little happy dance every time I open my email.

Don't you want to be a part of that?
