So yesterday was way too gorgeous of a day to stay inside, and I spent a busy day outside working in my yard. Today however, I am planning a less strenuous day because I don't spend want to spend my whole weekend doing yard work. Even though there's enough of it that I could.
Plus it is cloudy and cold so its the perfect kind of arting day! That is exciting.
So today I have a few more views from my 50 states altered book.
The top post card is cool view of New York City's Empire state building that I bought many years ago when I visited New York. I want to create a page for the rest of New York, the actual state that is, but I haven't yet found my inspiration. That's why the page behind the postcard is still undone.
And here is a couple of pages inspired by driving trips from my home in New Hampshire down to the US capital of Washington DC. Unfortunately I've mostly only driven through New Jersey and Delaware to date. I taken several different road through New Jersey, not just the main highway route 95, and I have seen Princeton University and been on the USS New Jersey battle ship once. But I can't say I've ever really done tons of touristy things in that state
And although I've been to Washington DC 5 times, I have yet to make it there for the cherry blossoms in early April. But its on my bucket list. That's why you see a stenciled cherry background. I put an old fashioned post card of the Washington Monument on that background and put a piece of mica over part of it that that's why it has that strange color effect in the middle of it.
So this past week real spring arrived here in New Hampshire.
Here's the leaf view last Monday.
And here was yesterday/Saturday.
I LOVE it.
Have a great rest of your weekend everyone.
