Since CPAD started a day after this year’s Small Business Saturday, we will make it TODAY! SMALL BUSINESS SATURDAY means BUY LOCAL. Shop Mom and Pop. Buy ART! Support artists! You certainly still have enough time to buy something unique for everyone on your list.
You can go to YOUR local artists neighborhood (GOOGLE where artists have open studios in your area, or you can browse many artists (like me) online and avoid crowds.
I didn’t really find a lot of images for CPAD while on vacation in Ireland, Scotland and Wales this year! (I was kind of surprised, too) I suppose had I really been looking for them, I would have seen more, but I was so caught up in everything else to see, and so I missed them. But this Santa in a window in Galway in May… he caught my eye! I am afraid he may have been being held hostage! lol
Here are my 100 favorite images from that trip. Remember, you can own any of them (or any other image on my site) in time for gift giving!
Happy birthday, hunny!! We are doing Throwback Thursday a little early 🙂
Have you seen Ford Vs Ferrari yet? (No? Why NOT? The theater was packed last TUESDAY night! Did you know that my husband wrote a novel? You do now!!! It’s GOOD! (and I am NOT a race car type person… I mean, I have fond childhood memories of my dad taking us to the stock car races at Weissglass Stadium, but…)
It’s futuristic, and funny and poignant, and not so car-guy racing dense that you need to KNOW about cars (because his, for the moment, are make-believe)…. and there’s tragedy and some romance, too. LUNA LE MANS-THE LONG SHADOW Currently a free download at Smashwords. Treat yourself.

Where did this year GO?? Have you any idea what your new years resolutions were for 2019? Are you ready for 2020? I hope that the good outdid the bad this year, for you…
I am sorry to inform you, but you are NO LONGER early with your Christmas shopping. Indeed, you are starting to skate pretty close to “OMG, what am I getting aunt Susie this year!” All that’s between you and Christmas is Election Day on Tuesday (VOTE!!!) and Thanksgiving.
Have you signed up to get a little holiday cheer yet? A laugh, a chuckle or a memory in photo form, delivered to your INSTAGRAM, to your FACEBOOK, to your TWITTER or, if you are still opening it daily, your EMAIL? (Don’t trust that you HAVE in the past signed up… please go check that you follow me on one of the three links above. If you want me to be sending you an email each morning with your Photo A Day, please contact me) (Twitter—fair warning, you WILL see a lot of political posts if you follow me there)
Let me remind you that you still have time to find aunt Susie a perfect, and unique gift-– a gift of ART.
