My Bestest Buddy and me are hocking our wares this coming fall at a very stylish Flea Market down in Escondido..... I'm really getting into this mixed media and altered art stuff. Here's what I've been working on.
a little of this...

and yes, I've been a busy bunny and I have no doubt that I will be showing more as the year progresses...artistic stuff that is~

My Men

You all know who much I lust after this man. Since I was about 10 years old, something about him peaked my interest and still today I'm still in lust with...even more so

but...I just happened to stumble upon "The View" the other morning and to my happy surprise, Ed Harris was a guest. I've never seen him being interviewed so I was intrigued. I've always had a slight crush on him, seen every movie he's ever been in and frankly, didn't know much about him...only that he's drop dead gorgeous. Well, not only is he seriously sexy, he's quiet and shy and very reserved, which of course made me lust after him more. So I'm thinkin' my man Ed will probably fill the lust void in my head when my man Sean leaves this earth....I'm Just Sayin'

Pink Camilia's

This crazy weather is turning my plants and flowers topsy turvy. It's hot, it's cold, it's windy, a tornado might hit and over and over again. I never know what will bloom and when. The tops of my Ficus trees are burnt from frost and yet...I noticed yesterday my Camilias are blooming. Tons of them

They look so delicate and fragile...but their not, their pretty sturdy and hardy and I really love the little buds

my favorite flower color

Maybe Spring will be here before we know it ~

It's like it Never Happened

The Holidays are just a footnote and my oven hasn't been on since Dec 31th, the decorations are put away and there isn't one cookie to be seen...anywhere. It's like it never happened!

The front porch is now ready for spring, adorned with colorful wooden flowers that Eric made me years ago

I bought some post~it notes, yes, paper post~it notes that look just like these flowers. Sewed a button in the middle of them and ...

put them on a wreath and hung it up....Suh~Weet!

Darn 80% Off

At a time when people at Eric's work are being layed off and Eric himself has gotten a salary cut, NOW is not the time to go shopping. I had a long talk with my self about how much I have and how grateful I am and how I couldn't possibly buy one more Christmas item. Seriously, I don't, but as I entered Kohl's (you knew there was a but coming huh?) and spied that huge, very festive sign that read ( hello bunny, yes I'm talking to you) *Christmas 80% off* it was like a huge magnet was pulling me to the back of the store. And as I'm walking back, I'm telling myself, your just gonna look, you don't need a darn thing!

Well...Here are the darn things...

Circus Flags and a Red diamond cut Hurricane Candle Holder

Some Big Top Circus Ornaments that will fit right in with my Christmas/Circus Theme

A Big Beautiful Red Glittery Believe Sign

A Holiday Welcome Flag and 3 photo holders for Eric, Raquel and Moi'

...And a little heifer with a fence for my Department 56 Christmas Village....SCORE!!

And because I can't wait till next Christmas...

the Hurricane Lamp is on display in my living~room already!

Now that I'm thinking about it...I just might be a Christmas Decor organized Christmas Decor Hoarder.....I'm Just Sayin'

The Circle of the Resolution

You say you made a revolution? Or did you make a restitution?....OK...I'm just trying to be funny because it's Resolution time. You know, when you pick a bad character flaw or daily issue to overcome and make good on. It usually lasts about 3 days for the thrill to be gone... from what the experts say....experts meaning EVERYONE on the planet who makes them.

Weighty issues seems to be #1 with most people and I'm thinking it's because we just had our fill of holiday cooking and festivities, when honestly, we've had ALL last year to take off the weight from the previous holiday. Exercising seems to be high on the list, but it's so cold in January and February, that you can't go outside to do it and lord knows you can't do it inside...we need a exercising buddy for that and the darn cats just stare at me, the party poopers! So we tell ourselves we'll wait for warmer weather and that doesn't happen till Easter and we all know you can't start an exercising program at that time...too tempting with all those chocolate bunnies running around, not to mention Spring break when our wild side shows up .
So we wait till Spring cleaning and THEN we'll not only get to movin' but, things will get clean...My house is too big, I'll take one room a week and that should do it but then, you come across those old photos that you haven't seen in years and you've pretty much wasted time sitting on the floor surrounded by memories. So you decide to put them in scrape books and of course it's May now and the beginning of Memorial weekend where the food fest begins which in turn, takes us to Summer and you are determined to eat healthy because fruit and veggies are so plentiful...but then is Ice Cream.

Before you know it Summers almost done with and you've never hit the beach or the pool...does watering the lawns every other day count? I'm not gonna pretend here...FALL is where my Resolution Falls apart...cooler weather, kids back at school, food dates with friends and last but not least....COMFORT FOOD!

So here we are, back where we started and my intentions are good but perhaps not realistic. Needless to say, my New Years Resolution has been the same one for about
10 years. To be a better person and although I try through out the year, I try harder at the beginning of the year. So...I walk a little, swim a little, hit the beach and pool when I can, grow my veggies and eat more apples and pick up the house once in a while, but more importantly, I try to smile more, help people more and in general just be better than the previous year...

the problem is my memory is goin' so I don't remember how good I was ...I'm just sayin!
