Scribble Picnic (Fireflies)

One of my favorite memories as a little girl was catching fireflies (aka lightning bugs) in mason jars with my dad and brothers in our neighbor's backyard. Some of my summer memories were good and precious - this was one of them. I can't tell you just how much I love them and all the joy they bring to my heart. They fascinated me as a child. I sat for hours next to my father on the picnic table, watching what felt like a million of them, lighting up the night, bringing some sort of hope and promise to my heart as a little girl.

I couldn't think of anything more appropriate for Michael's Scribble Picnic theme - jars. Say, I have an idea! Why don't we all hang out for a while with our own jars and catch a few fireflies....gazing up into the midnight sky, dreaming?...

Sunday Sketches (Strawberry Sponge Cake)


We've a busy weekend as it is Father's Day. Michael plans to have breakfast with the youngest son and then in the afternoon, a cook-out with everyone to celebrate. It's extra-special this year as my step-daughter's husband will be enjoying his very first Father's Day with beautiful 8-month old twins!!

This quick illustration came about due to a photo Michael forwarded to me of a scrumptious looking Strawberry Victoria Sponge cake packed with cream. We had a delicious one made for our summer English Tea Party last weekend so wasn't aware he was wanting another one! In lieu of another real cake, I sketched out this darling guy who's about to enjoy his personal sponge cake for him instead. :)

Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend! I'll catch up later in the evening. Happy SS!
