It is starting to feel like fall/autumn here in Indiana. I admit, fall is my favorite season. We are, I feel very fortunate to have the experience of the changing seasons. If you are not in an area that has the beautiful color and feel of autumn, this is a beautiful painting to decorate and enjoy in your home or office. This image is one of the original fall/autumn oil paintings available in my collection. I have sold many landscape oil paintings. This time of year I get many requests for landscape and other commissions for holiday gifts. Commissions are welcome!

If you have any questions about this painting or would like to enquire about a commission, please feel free to contact me. My e-mail is: pattitrostle@aol.com

Great items for the beach!

longbeach

I recently returned from a wonderful trip to California to visit my kids.  The weather was was warm and beautiful in southern California.  This day was perfect for making a trip to the beach.  This photo is the beach in Long Beach.

My son and I along with my two small grand daughters had a wonderful time playing in the water and on the beach.  Walking from the car to the beach was made much easier with a few items we needed to enjoy our day.  We wanted to take some folding chairs, beach toys, towels, blankets etc.  My son had everything we needed to make our walk easy and fun!

Here are a few of the things I recommend when visiting the beach if you need to take several items especially with children.

1.Mac Sports Collapsible Folding Outdoor Utility Wagon, Blue

This was a real back and arm saver! I highly recommend this little wagon not only for the beach, but for camping or even for everyday use for keeping items together to transport.
We used this cart to transport items for our soccer game from the car to the soccer field!

For more information or purchase just click on the photo!

2.Beach Toys Sand Brick-Building Tool Set with Brick Mold, Trowel, Shovels, Sand Roller, Water Pot, Basket and Bucket

A great little collection of beach toys for the kids!
For more information or purchase just click on the photo!

3. Child 100% Cotton Hooded Towel 24 x 48 inches (Mermaid)

This is such a cute little mermaid beach towel to wrap your little one after swimming and showering after the beach fun!
Just click on the image to see this beach towel and other to choose from!

4. KingCamp Folding Quad Chair Lumbar Back Support Light Weight Portable Deluxe Padded Oversize with Cooler and Armrest for Beach Camp, Carry Bag Included

What a great little outdoor chair to transport or put on your deck or patio! This chair will make your trip or outdoor experience very comfortable and enjoyable!!

5. Kelsyus Kid’s Canopy Chair

Let’s not forget the little ones comfort! They also get tired and need a comfortable place to take a break just like the adult! This is a comfortable chair that will help keep the sun off your child and away from the heat!

Peppermint Essential Oil 15ml by Young Living Essential Oils

peppermint oil

I mentioned in a past post summer is here!  Most of us want to spend more time outdoors enjoying a little summer fun!  I know I do!  One thing I have used for years to help keep from getting bit by mosquitos and other bugs is peppermint essential oil.  I put a drop on each wrist.  This seems to do the trick.  Bugs hate peppermint oil!

One other thing, I have also used this oil to help keep away bugs naturally in my home.  I put a few drops of the peppermint oil in a spay bottle with a little water (shake bottle well) and spray where I see ants etc. are coming inside. (Do not spray oil on fabric)

I have another use for the peppermint oil.  I put one drop behind each ear to help keep me a little cooler in the heat.  Two uses here…helps keeps the bugs away and helps keep you cooler!

I have used the Young Living Peppermint oil exclusively.  I love Young Living products and have used them for many years!  I hope you will try the peppermint oil.  It smells great and I think you will really like it!

I hope you have a great time in your outdoor activities whether you are camping or just going for walks!

I have always loved antiques and vintage. I am fortunate to own many pieces of vintage and antique possessions given to me by my grandparents. I have some beautiful quilts, table clothes, fabrics etc. in my collection. I want to preserve some of the images in the things that I have loved for so many years. This notecard image is from one of the fabrics I have in my collection. I will be adding other images from this particular piece in the near future. I have this listed as a “Thank You” notecard but I will personalize the notecards for you with your name or another greeting in place of the “thank you”.

These cards would not only be a great thing to keep for yourself for a special thank you to someone, but would also make a great unique gift for Easter,Mothers Day,birthday or anytime! Wonderful note cards for spring!

When life gives you lemons..

You have probably heard the saying, when life gives you lemons make lemonade.   I just try to think positive as much as I can to make life easier to accept the things that go not quite according to plan. I know of a great book that can help you think positive that I would like to share with you.  The book is The Power of Positive Thinking by Norman Vincent Peale.  An international bestseller with over five million copies in print, The Power of Positive Thinking has helped men and women around the world to achieve fulfillment in their lives through Dr. Norman Vincent Peale’s powerful message of faith and inspiration.
