Sunday Spaces: Bailey's pond

Welcome once again to Sunday Spaces ... It's a warm Spring day in Tennessee and our Sunday Spaces feature story was inspired on a vacation to Tennessee by this extraordinary, Michigan based artist AmyJO.  Creative Girl Amy Jo & family call this Sunday Space Bailey's Pond. All content and photos of this Sunday Space are the property of Amyjo and have been republished here with permission & grace. Once again ... you just gotta love this all around creative Golden Retriever lover Amyjo. I'm Thankful to Amy for sharing her inspiring story here on Sunday Spaces.

We call this Bailey's pond,he was our first Golden retriever. we took him on vacation to Tn. and stayed  in a cabin on a creek. it was love at first site and we couldn't keep him and his tennis balls out of the water! We loved it too.

So we decided we needed a pond for all of us.

It's a thousand gallon pond which was built by a local company. We have some large Koi,some goldfish and now and then a frog.

The pond is about 8 years old now and our beloved Bailey has his wings.
Our new 2 year old Golden is 
Willy and we still hang a sign out every spring that my daughter made for us. It says Bailey's Pond and we enjoy many hours sitting out there ,watching the fish,birds and enjoying the flowers.

Willy just like Bailey is allowed to stand in the middle pond on 
hot summer days with his tennis ball.

See & read more of Amy's awesome story in the Spring Issue of Inspired Studios ... April 15th. Amy Blogs about her art & life at Art from the Heart.


  1. Beautiful! What lucky Goldens to have such a luscious place to play!

  2. Gorgeous spot. Wish it would warm up here so I could turn on our little fountain. Well who am I kidding - wish it would warm up enough to walk outside!

  3. Sonya, Again you have shown what a creative writer you are.
    I'm delighted to share our haven with you and all your followers.Thank you for choosing me for this feature.
    Hugs & Blessings, Amy Jo

You just gotta love this creative go getter Laura ... I'm Thankful to Laura for sharing her inspiring story here on Sunday Spaces ...  The story of my studio is tied in to my cancer. Good things and not so good things somethings come together. In 2003 I was finally diagnosed with  thyroid cancer . I say finally because I was sick for 10 months, constant choking and coughing all night long before I found my cancer. ~ okay, side-bar for a quick cancer story....  I was sick, and first we thought it was a virus, then maybe  bronchitis , then maybe an allergy, I coughed and coughed, I couldn't sleep. I coughed so hard, I broke two rib

Brio Brainstorm - part of  Creating Action , a free email program from  Scoutie  Girl Find the Little Things That Put a Hop in Your Step   Tara  designed a fun worksheet to help us zero in on what pumps our enthusiasm,it's a fill in the blank work of art. Get your art on,  download  & fill in the blanks. My blanks are in red.

Blogging Revelations - A Kelly Rae Roberts E-Book reader Confession

... re posted from - 1/10/11 My very first private e-class was Kelly's and it was awesome! I learned so very, very much. But some things are never in a book, never written down. In her e-class/book Kelly stresses the importance of blogging in so many ways. Blogging was the first item of discussion in class. Blogging is the first chapter of her e-book.  Blogging ,  blogging ,  blogging . I've been a loyal follower of Kelly's &  Anna 's  for years now. Yet I'm not on any of their list. I've searched through their archives for the secrets to their success and found them on more than one occasion. I'm a speed reader. I read super more then the average person in one day. I love books! I love information & like Reed on Criminal Minds, I love to share tidbits of what seams to be the most unrelated information that I've gathered. When my Daddy, would say something is very important. I listened, then acted on his prompt. Liste
