Look what I scored just now!!!!!!!!!!!





This darling pink haired Sophie doll from the Black Apple's latest shoppe update!!!! I was ready and waiting, I kept refreshing, I kept waiting to see that pink hair and snatched her up! I had a moment of panic as I forgot to login. But I got her, she's all mine!!!

I'm sure my little girl will wonder how it could possibly not be for her. But this one is for MAMA!!!!!

My work is done for the day.... just kidding.

Yayyy......I'm a happy chicky!!1

Mini book pages--Huckleberry Finn



These are a couple of pieces I drew on Mini pages of The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.

When I say mini, the book pages are 3" x5". Well, I'll get a ruler for sure, but by eyeing it that's my guess. They will be in my shop early next week. They will most likely be a set.

I found this note....

today while cleaning out my desk at work. It is in my handwriting but I wish I wrote down where I found this quote, BECAUSE I LOVE IT SO.

'The world around you is whatever you sincerely ask of it. Your life is precisely what you ask of it, with your thoughts, your actions, and your attitude....
The value you look for, and the value you expect, is the value you will find. What you decide to make of anything will ultimately define for you what it is. What you truly expect to see you will most certainly see. The way you genuinely expect to live is the way your life will surely proceed. When you know without the slightest doubt that it will happen, IT WILL HAPPEN!'

Chock full of ETSY.......


Have you seen this months (online) edition of Small Magazine? It is just full of wonderful ESTY artists, including Camilla Engman. They did a little piece on her. But they include many products by other artists too. So very nice to see!!!

Old skool



This image is from Real Simple's June magazine as well. I would love to have a pair of these again. Although, I can't help but think I'm going to break something! Still, the pink wheels are great!!! And I know that RollerBLADES are what's 'IN' now, I don't care.....I want the classics!!

Centerpieces: Boxes of wheatgrass


How completely amazing are these!!!! I saw this in Real Simple's magazine this weekend. And I think these are perfect for a garden party! They mention the 5x3 acrylic clear mini stack boxes are from the container store $7. each, Butterflies from Michaels, $2 each....No mention of how to grow the wheat grass etc. I guess its obvious to some...but I don't have a green thumb so I'll have to google that one.

The weekend is HERE.........yayyy!!!!!

Is it sad that we love weekends so darn much...shouldn't we love the rest of the week nearly as much... NAHHHH!

So let's see......... we will be having a Bday celebration. Well we did some celebrating last week but my husbands actual bday is tomorrow. So we will be going out to a hopefully very nice and delicious dinner by ourselves! My sis will be taking the little one to do whatever!!! She loves her aunty so she's very happy to stay with her!!! I'll definitely be doing some painting and just enjoying the good weather!!!!





Totally unrelated image..... this is a Porsche once owned by Janis Joplin that was recently unveiled at the Whitney museum. I saw it on the Domino blog.

Domino June/July

Have you grabbed your copy of Domino this month!!! I'm loving the color.....the green is just lovely and the pattered chairs in the back are perfect.... and that skirt, where's the fiesta!!
I'll share more later......

A day at work..............


I'm here, really I am.
Here's what I want.......................
to wake up in the early morning, put on a brand new pair of soft flip flops, old well worn tattered jeans, simple white tee, head out into the back yard with canvas and brush in hand and be able to paint all day!
See now that would be a great day at work! In my dreams right now.
But dreams are the fuel for LIFE!!! Right?
