Tallulah-Palooza Friday

 
 
 
Tallulah Mae couldn't decide whether she felt like reading about the Tudors--you can never know enough, you know--or watching some Project Runway. In the end, she decided to take a nap instead.

P.S. I found her like this--I did not pose her this way!

Turkey Day

 
Tallulah Mae is not too sure about this turkey...and it is not too sure about her!

Happy Thanksgiving, y'all. I'm so grateful for absolutely everything and everyone in my life. I'm truly truly blessed.

(And I'm thankful for the lovely bunch of you who stop by this blog occasionally! You rock, my bloggy friends!)

Pixie Blue

Please say hello to Pixie Blue, newly adopted into a loving home. She is a total snuggle bug. So great when dogs and people find each other! Don't you love her pinky nose? Made for smooching...

Big and Little

 
 
I made these for a little girl who is about to be a big sister--she's the bigger one protecting and guiding the little one.

So fun to hand sew animals--I could happily do it all day!

(I'm especially proud of the tails, which I came up with myself!)

Olive Raspberries

This is exactly how it came out of the jar--no shenanigans from me. Doesn't that look SO much like a tongue, veins and all?

Weird! No random hearts today--random tongues instead!

Tallulah-Palooza Friday

 
 
 
 
 
Tallulah Mae enjoys a good shoe...she tosses them about, rolls on them, and sort of mouths them (she has never actually damaged one). In the last photo, she is howling. Don't ask me....

Telephone Pole Opener

 
Handy...you're outside, watching the (one-way) traffic go by, and you need to pop open a cold one.

Voilà!

Whaaaa?????

 !!!!!
 !!!!!!!!!
Why is everyone so shocked? Why, perhaps they are surprised that it is 86 degrees on November 13. Um, really? That's just weird!

Rosy

 
 
 
When you see this, you think, "Today was a good day." Even Miss Mae is bathed in a rosy glow.

Green Flash

 
 
 
After a delightful impromptu breakfast yesterday, Miss Robin from Various and Sunday and I made a trip to the nursery--she is beautifying the landscaping of her cool new house.

And a fearless hummingbird was working all the tubular flowers he could find. I will never ever tire of watching (and photographing!) them--or being absolutely amazed that such a creature exists...

Be sure to click on these to make them larger.

P.S. He's almost hidden in photo 3--can you spot him? Where's Waldo?

Bees and Bird

 This is unusual: TWO bees working the same area. The bees are all over the birds of paradise at the moment. They're getting some sort  of sticky nectar...
And right above them, in this tree, is a lovely little hummingbird--can you see him?

Fungus, Plural


A frolic of fungi? A mob of mushrooms? A tra-la-la of truffles?

What's the word for a gathering of mushrooms/fungi/truffles? (Other than "yum," if they are edible.)

Heart of Glass

A broken piece of glass...a random heart.
