Significance of the Name

My Blog’s name is a tribute to my Dad & my Husband. My Dad because he used to sing the song to me, "How 'd You Like to Swing on a Star?" It's about reaching for your dreams, you can stay where you are & be safe OR YOU CAN SWING ON STAR. Stars also refer to a difficult night just after my husband died. I was talking to him (I often do.) & said how I missed his "I Love You's". That night he gave me a dream... a gorgeous, bright blue night sky filled with thousands of stars, in the middle the stars formed an "I LOVE YOU"....such a gift on so many levels.

So "follow your own path, & don't worry about the darkness, for that is when the stars shine brightest”

Iris Painting Update

Just thought you all might like a follow-up on my Iris Painting.
Still may consider selling it, but the colors actually were done to work in my great room so I am enjoying for now.

This is on an antique server my husband Fred found before I met him. 
He always had great taste.

I will post on that large apothecary jar sometime later...great flea market find!
So was that chair too as a matter of fact.

Just a quick update I plan to do from time to time.
Thanks for checking in to my ramblings.
Love hearing your comments.
