My niece, the artist

One of my nieces left a comment on my post yesterday. I know she’s been a long-time visitor and occasionally, she drops me a line telling me she’s been here. Frankly, I’m quite flattered (and honored) that she even visits.

I was surprised to read her comment that stated, “I’ve started a blog”!

So of course I had to get over there pronto and check her out. I think she’s been at it for just over a week or so.

These drawings are from a post she did on her sketchbook.

She’s always been a talented artist and graduated last May from Drexel University with a degree in fashion design. She landed a sweet job in NYC at Jones NY and loved it . . . until the economy fell flat and they had to let go of some people. The newest hires were the first to go.

[Emily] is beautiful and talented and is the eldest daughter of my dear sister [Charlotte]. Stop by if you have a moment and give her a welcome to world of blogging.

And Em, I hope you don’t mind that I stole these pages from your beautiful sketchbook. I just really loved them. Good luck storming the castle!

Love,

Aunt Kate

Until tomorrow, as every else knows me . . .

Hi! Just stumbled on your blog from Pioneer Woman's site.

My husband & I were stationed down near Colonial Williamsburg about a year ago. So the stories of your house & all the lovely scenery are making me miss that time.

Now we're stationed as far from colonial life as you can imagine - Camp Humphries, Pyeogntaek, South Korea.

I'll be sure to swing by your neice's blog to say hello.

Best wishes from an overseas Army wife,
Jennifer
