Another Great Place for the Family -Ritz Carlton on Lido Key

 Another fantastic place for the whole family in Sarasota, Florida.  The Tiki Hut in front of the Ritz Carlton Beach Club on Lido Key.  We went on Thanksgiving day and it was beautiful.  Sitting at tables in the sand, in front of a huge fire pit, watching the sunset and having food and drinks served to us while the kids played on the beach!  This is why we live here!

O'Leary's Tiki Bar & Grill in Sarasota . . .Love Where I Live

Just had to post this picture I took of the view from O'Leary's Tiki Bar & Grill in Sarasota.  We come here often.  It's a great place for the kids to play by the water and the grown ups can relax and have something to eat. There's usually live music as well.  Very festive.  It's a little vacation right down the street!

View from my table . . . who wouldn't come here?

Painted Flower Pots

At one of my Art Camps we painted flower pots and they turned out beautiful.  I primed the terra cotta pots with white paint so the colors would be bright.  The girls used acrylic craft paint, glitter glue, and sparkly confetti to decorate them.  I sealed them with clear polyurethane.  So cute!

Getting started.  Notice a theme with the color they all chose . . .

Finished pots ready to take home!
