Nan Smith, the hostess, is Canadian and I know there will be other Canadians participating. There are artists from Europe and Australia. The USA has several artists representing various states. When the blog hop was announced I knew I wanted to participate but was not sure which state I wanted to represent. I have lived in California and currently reside in the Pacific Northwest, two great states that actually have some things in common.
They each grow grapes and are leaders in the wine industry.
The grow pine trees that have their own ornaments - pine cones.
They can make snowmen.
Each state has a large military force based there.
Each has recreational boating and naval shipyards.
Because of the closeness to the sea, each has their own seabirds. Roosting on telephone poles.
One state has leaves that turn colors in the fall.
Both states grow pumpkins in the fall.
One state exports wood overseas.
I hope you have enjoyed the representations on the states that I have lived in.
Be sure to visit the other artists to see which parts of the world that they represent:
