We went for a drive yesterday looking for new horse friends for paintings. I was hoping for sweet colts with mamas and did find a couple. Overall the day was so windy that the paintings will need a little adjustment to look natural. Or else a lot of windblown trees and grass in the backgroundContinue reading “photo excursion”
I remember watching the original Sleuth (1972) sometime back in the 1980s, and don’t remember anything about it besides thinking Michael Caine was handsome and that the movie was clever and I liked it. So when I saw Sleuth was remade with Michael Caine again, albeit 35 years older, and directed by Kenneth Branagh, IContinue reading “Watching: Sleuth (2007)”
Here is a photo from a customer of her method for hanging paintings. I did not ask where she bought the pieces, if you want to copy it I will ask her and let you know. I like that you can move the art left and right/up and down and change out the art painlesslyContinue reading “one way to do it”
I had to think about whether to mention The Woodsman, because usually I talk about movies that are worth putting on your Netflix list. This one…is for a certain kind of person, the kind who watches IFC and Sundance and thinks edgy ideas are fun to mull over.

Without meaning to brag, I did win the Gold Award for the show which was a surprise. I do not know who the judge was because heContinue reading “A busy weekend”
A while back on a Costco run I was in the store and waiting in line for a hotdog (you always buy one too right?), and the man behind me had a huge Rotteweiler. The dog did not have any kind of handicapped identifier on it, but I assumed Costco would not let in aContinue reading “musing about assumptions”
This turned out fabulous right? Bright and fun! It is going to hang in our living room while it dries before shipping off to her owner’s home!
We spotted this baby bun out in the garden. What a surprise! Don’t you want to scoop her up and give her a snuggle???
I find quilts are not, “Ooh, I have to make that, let’s go buy all the fabric right now!” sorts of projects. The fabric is come across a little at a time and put aside until there is enough. I have had in mind a quilt made from ’30s reproduction fabric (or anything that canContinue reading “fabric love”
