This is the place where I round up a corral chock-full of mixed media art, vintage collections, digital escapades, and some occasionally snarky observations about life with junk, books, rescue dogs and nearly-grown children.

Get a Handle on Your Groceries

Our local H.E.B. Groceries store, a Texas-based chain, always stocks an array of products designed to appeal to locals. I'm particularly fond of the company's newest series of reusable grocery sacks--the Through the Eyes of Texas" series, featuring designs by local artists.  This impressionistic wildflower bag is based on a painting by Texas Artist Thelma Cardwell-Cale.  I've also purchased a second bag by Clif Tinker, a San Antonio artist that depicts a bold array of famous landmarks from his hometown.

Among the more unique local items you can find at H.E.B. are these crunchy white corn tortilla chips shaped suspiciously but deliciously like the Lone Star State:
