A Gumbo of Goodies

Upon just getting back from vacation, I’ve assembled a quick and easy yet delightful mix of links — a gumbo of goodies to try.

We discussed revisiting berry picking as a possible family trip to the Rappahannock, which is where we used to take the boys when they were younger and where Piers and his girlfriend visited recently. They also went on a Virginia Vineyard tour, which can be another trip for this fall to consider. This newly discovered app will be interesting to use: “Uncovering George Washington’s Youth,” which I always thought was Pope’s Creek Plantation, where we have been. It is just down the road from Westmoreland Berry Farm, our favorite place to go berry picking.

While there, I don’t imagine we’ll see fall color like this but wouldn’t it be nice!! This was Stumbled Upon via Delightful’s post 10 Most Unbelievable Places in the World, which you’ll have to visit to see more — truly spectacular!

Finally, try this fun thing to do — another Stumble upon find. A little addictive. No matter where you point your cursor, a picture with someone pointing to it can be found via Pointer Pointer. Freaky and how do they do that?!!

I'm an artist, wife and mother of two boys. I started my illustration business, The Occasional Palette over 23 years ago, when my oldest son was an infant. Once my children were in school, I began painting decorative, faux finishes and murals through my second business, Casart, now over 19 years old. Now, my third business, Casart Coverings is a springboard from my second. Click on the link on the sidebar to see innovative, custom, designer wallcovering, removable and reusable wallpaper.
