Today, my home was on a home tour - a fundraiser for our neighborhood's Early Childhood PTA.  It was great fun.  I picked up two bunches of Rununculus from Whole Foods last night to add a little color around the house. They were so pretty I took some photos as inspiration for a painting.

The vase is a piece of Roseville pottery that belonged to my grandmother. Her grandfather (or father - I can't remember) once worked in the Roseville factory in Ohio.  Isn't this piece wonderful?

I also grabbed a bushel of red Ranunculus.
