I think some days I love it more than a hot fudge sundae with whipped cream and sprinkles on top.
More than walking along the beach with sand between my toes and finding the perfect piece of sea glass.
Some days I love it more than finding a yard sale where they are about to close-up shop and it’s hot and the husband is watching the sale because his wife went inside to make lemonade and he doesn’t really care what everything sells for so you score a set of old croquet mallets for $1.00 and he throws in a vintage stool for free because he doesn’t want to haul it to Goodwill.Continue reading “PS I Found You”
I saw her outside one day.
Arms lifted to the sky.
Blonde hair floating in the wind.
With a smile on her face.
And her twirly whirly skirt was whirling. Whirling ike it could whirl until today turned into tomorrow.
And my heart skipped a beat and filled with overflowing emotion and awe.
Awe at the joy and the abandon with which she twirled.Continue reading “The Twirly Whirly Skirt”
Do you remember the arrow maker?
I know there were about 2.75 of you reading the blog then, but if 2.75 of you remember, I was in awe.
You see, I am a hand talker. With me there is a lot of pointing and hand-waving and excited little swoops to punctuate a really important point whenever I tell a story. It has been hard for me to adjust to telling a story with simply pictures and words.
Without an extra swoop now and then.
So when I wanted to post on my painted bedroom floors. I was in a quandary.Continue reading “There’s a New Arrow Maker in Town”
Can we talk?
Can I interrupt your busy Saturday for just a minute?
Can we talk about how I just bought this?
Ahhhhhh. The hand lotion of the Gods.
I mean….I love the way it smells. I love the way it makes my hands silky soft.
But silky smooth and clean smelling goodness aside…
…I really bought it because of this.Continue reading “Can We Talk?”
Can I be cheesy for just one second?
See….today is about our journey, our vision, our goals. The road less-traveled and all that.
Which can’t help but bring to mind these visionary Miley Cyrus lyrics:
“There’s always gonna to be another mountain.
I’m always gonna want to make it move.
Always gonna be an uphill battle
And sometimes I’m gonna have to lose.
It ain’t about how fast I get there,
Ain’t about what’s waiting on the other side….
I think Miley would be proud 🙂

And do you get extra art points if your canvas came from the junk store?
I know Monet or Leonardo da Vinci might have turned up their collective noses at this humble tool box. I know that probably this will never be displayed in the Guggenheim Museum. And I know that somewhere an artist is cringing.Continue reading “What is Your Canvas?”
Does this ever happen to anyone else?
Or just me?
You know what you want to write about.
You just don’t know what to say.
You even manage to dredge up some old before pictures from the vault to demonstrate your progress.Continue reading “Shakespeareless”
I wish you lived right around the corner and I could just call you up for a little soft- serve and conversation.Continue reading “What Does Your Blog Want to Be When It Grows Up?”
