I Beg Your Pardon!

Harumph! My feet are NOT fat (one of the few body parts!) Interesting lesson in botanical naming, actually...

Busy (Bee)ver

Check out Miss Bee here...she has been frolicking about in something with LOTS of bright yellow pollen...she's covered all over with a fine yellow fuzz and her pollen sacs are utterly overflowing. It's marvelous! Go bees, go go GO!

Ladybug Love

If you could really zoom in, you'd see that black "spot" right behind this ladybug's head is actually heart shaped! Hearts...they really ARE everywhere!

Orange U Glad...

...when you've made spicy pickled carrots? I am!

A cute little owl family...made by me for the darling and sweet baby who lives next door to me, for her first birthday. They're pretty cute, if I do say so myself...

Here they are, ready to go off to their new home (I had to miss the party because I've had the flu all weekend, boo...).

I derive MUCH satisfaction from hand sewing...I feel as if I could just sit and do it all day (born in the wrong era, I swear! BTW, I wonder if Jane Austen would blog were she alive today...) Now I must get started on making some things for my sweet and darling great-niece--her first birthday is coming right up!

When in Doubt... some sunset pictures! Works for me!

Check out this guy capturing some urban grittiness on his canvas...luckily for him, I'm pretty sure those train tracks aren't active (I hope not!).

Honey, Speed Up!

...because I have to get a closer look at THIS madness! It's a truck filled with fake dogs, one of them wearing a mortarboard. Oh yeah!

Love Love Love

Happy Valentine's Day! It's one of our very favorite days because it's also our wedding anniversary (yay!). I wish you all a day full of love--a loveful day!

P.S. Please note that in those top photos that is Tallulah Mae's BACK leg extended up past her face--I don't know how she does it!

Tallulah-Palooza Friday

Hey, Tallulah Mae--are we there yet?
Are we there?
Are we?

True Blue

At least the bulbs (which I planted and forgot about) are thriving this year...the rest of the things planted from seeds? Not so much...le sigh.

Ho Ho Meow

A bit blurry, but doesn't it look as if this is Santa Kitty? Or a Cat-Gnome? All he needs is a pointy red hat. It cracks me up!

Hearts Are Everywhere, Redux

Even the nasty chewing gum on the sidewalk can be (love)ly!

Tallulah-Palooza Friday

My head has exploded from the cuteness.
I just came upon her, in her baby bed, with her foot over her face. REALLY?!?!! Trying to make me keel over from the cuteness?! Well, it most definitely worked, Miss Tallulah Mae.

Randomly, I present to you: donkeys. I really love them, actually (how cute are they with their fuzzy winter coats?). The one in the top photo totally grabbed my sweater and would NOT let go. I mean, obviously he finally did, but we had quite a tug of war before he conceded my superiority (opposable thumbs and all--ha!).

Fishing for Mail

Hilarious...I hope it sings when you open it, like those Billy Big Mouth Bass delights.
