I should head to the garden center - in the mood I'm in!

Just can't wait for spring! Maybe this year I'll plant a kitchen tub or two on the patio. Hmmm... salsa garden and an herb garden?

Three Happy Friends

All happy in their weird little ways. Like me and my friends!

The Missing Doodles - (not exactly a Nancy Drew classic)

Introducing two doodles that have lingered in the sketchbook upstairs for awhile (it got cold, and I don't turn on the heat unless we're up there for awhile, or we have company to stay).

The first one is the actual sketch I did of my desktop. It's pretty much the same, except covered in Valentine's cards and empty envelopes today. Organizing everything neatly is N.O.T. my forté. I try, but it's not always a success.

Sketch numbah two is a drawing of the jewelry I rocked in the 70s. Yes, that is a macrame choker and hand-painted letter bead necklace. I loved the choker so much, wore it until it actually choked me to put it on. A sad day. I've more than made up for it with the jewelry I buy now. Still pretty cheap, though. I come from a long line of costume-jewelry queens. Makes it more fun to hunt down the style I want, and pay beans for it. Or make it myself. : )

Draw on, girl, draw on!

Love Blooms

Happy Valentine's Day to all my happy valentines!
Scatter smiles, share love, spread joy!

If you feel a little lopsided on a for-two kind of day,
I hope you spoil yourself a little in some fashion. : )

Better Nate than Lever

Kind of wish I could remember the rest of that joke, because I love the punchline.
This fellow is the long-promised BoogaLou makeover. He is a happy little guy, dancing in the starlight. I've probably watched a few too many bad horror movies for even dancing pumpkinheads that I draw to give me the shivers. Booga doesn't, now.

This should exist, because I would own it.

I imagine the things I want to have in my house, to sit on, to hang on my windows, to wear. And then I have to go find them. Usually I get close, but not the exact match to my imagination.

This is my latest invention. So... either I dream about it, or teach myself to sew and embroider, so I can have one. Soft greyish periwinkle wool, dark red stitching on bracelet sleeves and edges of everything, and red and blue pretty plaid as a lining.

This is as close as I'll get for awhile... : )!
