Rob Matre!
Many folks know Rob as the master art dealer, owning many fine art galleries in the Atlanta area.
What you may not know about him, however, is that he is a master photographer!
his work is amazing!
he is one of the new members of the Scott Art Gallery!
Remember, grand opening
Thursday, July 11th
a meet and greet on Friday, July12th

Back to Rob.
He mostly does golf photography.
his work is PERFECT for a great Father's Day gift!
He is branching out now and photographing buildings, landmarks and just fun and out of the ordinary objects.
All in black and white.
Do yourself a big favor and come see him at Scott's!
Remember South Building L-10!

*please forgive my computer....this pics have come out a bit blury!
(I promise there is NO blur in his work...unless it's intentional)

A Few of My Favorite Things!

Okay....I'll admit....I am the ultimate consumer.
I love to try new "stuff".
So, I decided to compile a list of products that I LOVE!!!
Try them, I think you will too!!!!

First up...
the best toothbrush EVER.
Didn't mean to buy it, but now that I did, I am S-O-L-D.  period.  you must try this!
it is...
the Colgate Optic White power toothbrush.

at 7.99 a total bargain.
not only does it clean those pearly whites, it has this thingy on the backside that cleans the insides of your cheek.  It really feels SO good.
hey...I'm passionate about my toothbrushes....
just sayin.
next up.
my all time favorite lipstick.
It's a bit pricey, but worth it when folks stop you in the mall to ask what color you're wearing.
Sisley L28
I have to give it about a C on longevity, but if you're a girl like me, you don't mind re-applying if it means a great, fresh look.

I am OBSESSED with my new wireless printer.
It's great.
HP 7520 All in One Printer
super easy to install and great printing.  And since it's the first wireless printer I've ever had, it's kinda like a new toy:)
Staples 149.00

Try this for easy, breezy cleanup of your pots and pans.
Seriously, NOMO scrubbin.
love, love, love this product.
trust me, you need this.

now, are you struggling with a Father's Day gift?
Since I'm pretty sure that none of the men in my life read my blog, I'm going to let you in on my Father's Day gift for all the special men in my life.
Book store quality books.
I'm making photo books for all of them.
Really just a lovely gift.
They even come with a dust jacket.
be prepared to spend some time.

Looking for that perfect graduation gift?
I found it today.

sorry about the burry pic, Tory wasn't co-operating:(
This little wristlet is awesome!  It has a place for money, credit cards, lipstick and your iphone!
just perfect.
now,,,,for guys? money.

what is a really great little dessert?
without the major calories?
Cheat without feeling guilty

oh yum.

I love, love, love this singer.
I've blogged about her before, but it's time for a reminder.
Eva Cassidy

Unfortunately she passed away at the tender age of 28 of melanoma.
What a shame.
I listen to this song bird every time I paint.

now on to coffee....
oh my.
I am actually not a huge coffee lover.
Although I have to have my couple of cups a joe every morning.

"W" is not a coffee drinker, so this little one cupper is perfect for me!
Love this lil thing.

Now, speaking of kitchen items, these are the bomb.
Duraclear glass wear.
Perfect for the pool, or just hangin out drinkin tea.
The perfect size ever
they absolutely will not break.  Nor do they discolor in the dishwasher.
They do, however, retain lipstick marks, so be sure to watch for that :)

okay for you "wineO's"
Cakebread's 2009 Dancing Bear
y'all, this is so amazing.
Cabernet Franc
but, at 90.00 a bottle, I wouldn't just suck it down.
um, unless you're like me and you buy it in Napa, forget what it costs and open a bottle every other night :)

and last but not least.
the greatest grille ever made....
be still my grillin lovin heart.
a bit pricey, but really worth every penny.  They last forever, and the Tucker, Georgia egg shoppe has the large one and lots of eggssories on sale for around 940.00.

Well, that wraps up our "consummer session 101" for today!

this was fun!  may do it again!
have a great day y'all!

Scott's Art Gallery

Well, it's official!
Scott Antique Market is developing a new art gallery within the Antique Market!
I cannot tell you how excited we all are!
We are just now in the process of interviewing new artists to be a part of this wonderful destination for original art.
One of the newest artist that will be joining us is Cathy McIntyre.

I met Cathy about 5 years ago when I first started painting.  And selling my art.
I have always admired her work.  Me being a beginner, she was just so highly trained and I wondered if I would ever reach her "status" as an artist.
Her dry humor is a delight and every now and then she may call you a dirty name but she doesn't mean it, it's all in good fun :)

She's also hysterically honest.
I love that about her.
Her art is clean and pure.  She is also not afraid to think "outside the box".
Which is somewhat unusual for a seasoned artist.
She has just joined the ranks of artists who are using high gloss resin as a finishing touch to their art.
This "resin" finish makes art "glass like".

Our grand openening for Scott Art Gallery will be held Thursday, July 11 - Sunday, July 14.
We will be having a meet and greet on Friday, July 12 from 9 - 11.
South Building Area L-10.

Now for some more of Cathy's beautiful work!

If you are an artist and would like to be a part of Scott Art Gallery please contact me at

Have a great day y'all!

The Georgia Aquarium

You know Atlanta is such a great place to visit.
Jordan and I were talking today about how much there is to do here!  
This morning we got up and decided to take the kiddos to the aquarium.
We hopped in the car and in 10 min. we were there!
It's one of Atlanta's most prized places.
And it's worth every bit of the 29.95 that you pay.
+10.00 parking
...but they get you on the food.
So, of course camera was in tow.

you get to touch these lovely creatures!

we decided this fish looked like Cate.

loved her.
sometimes you just know when they are a girl.

the little seahorses were my favorites.

but this guy was pretty cool too!
sometimes I make that face

again.  sometimes I make that face.

and Evey tried to immitate the grouper.
