Summer and Lost Buttons

Helen Tilston in Sarasota, Florida

I hope you are having the best summer ever.

There has been lots of excitement here and several trips both local and international.

My second blog Plein Aire Cottage Artists explains my lost button and I would greatly welcome assistance.

From Sea To Shinng Sea

Sarasota Florida 
Our new home is beginning to resemble a home.   The weather on the south coast of Ireland has been spectacular.   The sun rises at 5 a.m. and it is past 10.00 p.m before dusk.
Our living room is beginning to take shape
The fireplace we love and have had occasion to build a turf fire 

The Irish Open Golf Tournament at Fota Island found us following golfers.

Irish golfers, Rory McIlroy  and Padraig Harrington both wearing green

A trip to Florida found us celebrating July 4th at our friend's cottage at beautiful Indian Rocks Beach
