Paintings # 19 and 20 and Yummy Scones

Hi Everyone, Above is # 19 in the 30 day painting challenge. We are now 2/3 through and only 10 more to go! It has been a great learning and practicing experience. I meant to only paint flowers, but somehow just veered off the chosen path into some other things and it has been fun! 

I couldn't resist painting these pretty tomatoes before eating them! Maybe soon I will get back to flowers!

Yesterday, Carolyn on Aiken House and Gardens posted her great looking Oatmeal Scone recipe and I had to try them. They were awesome. You can check out her beautiful blog at http://www.warrengrovegarden.blogspot.com/or just go on Google and search for Aiken House and Gardens. You won't be disappointed.

My scones don't look as nice as hers, but they tasted so good. I will be making them often.
Thank you for sharing, Carolyn.

Hope you have a happy Fall day!


  1. Hi Egretta,
    Your scones look lovely and I am happy you enjoyed the recipe. I love your tea set as well-it was my mother in law's favorite pattern.
    Thank you for the link as well.


  2. All looks wonderful Egretta, I love the paintings and going to have to try to make those scones I love visiting your painting and Carolyn too.. Happy friday with love Janice

  3. Your painting is progressing nicely. You would probably get tired of painting just flowers. The scones look delicious. Where do you get all of your energy? What time do you get up? Glad that your kids in Colorado are okay. Small world, isn't it?
