Roller Derby Tonight

Tonight I am going to Roller Derby! Yes, you read that right, and I had the same reaction when my good friend and coworker told me she joined the team. (I hadn't heard or thought of roller derby since I was a kid, which was a very long time ago! LOL! )Sinfandel is a mild mannered professional by day, and derby girl by night. She is sweet and stylish and loves to garden, which seems contradictory to this new adventure she has started. Check out her fabulous garden blog.

I'll post pictures of tonight's big event tomorrow.

What are the colors of your life?

I bought this painting at an estate sale a couple of weekends ago. Her thoughtfulness called out to me. The length in her lean forward expresses yearning to me. Lean forward, discover your own life, create it with your own colors....

Spring Swap,Sunday Morning and Beautiful Kitty

I want to host a 4" X 4" canvas gallery swap. I am fascinated for some reason by gallery groupings. Deadline mid June.
I've already had a few express interest. I was thinking groups of nine would be nice, so you would send in nine and get nine back. If you would like to play, please leave me a comment on this post. No boundaries, the continuity I believe will come from the size. I've been experimenting and have posted a few. Although as with my life, all is still a work in progress.

Dimensional, fanciful, simple, layers,
soft, colorful, needful, ecstatic, loud, glory, praying, giving, dreaming, roundness, wholeness, emptiness, grieving, celebrating, grace, these are the boundaries of my life.

My vintage indie,"I dream of spring" swap arrived. It was all so marvelous, and Erin over at "The Classy Rabbit" was so good to me.

A vintage purse box filled with all sorts of lovelies.

A sweet little McCoy lamb planter that is so humble you just want to hold it and take care of it.

A vintage flower frog that is a work of beauty without it's resourcefulness. I may use it for a paper weight on my desk at work. So lovely, thank you Erin for your generosity.

I had set my goal to post last week, and then I got sick, and with the rest of life demanding my attention, we'll here I am a week later, still trying to recover...but a little better, at least...

Last weekend was filled with Kitty having photo shoots. It was amazing, she is amazing.

She was approached at work by a photographer who had asked if she would be her "subject". Kitty had so much fun and there will be more opportunities. Otherwise known as "girly" by her big brother she had no problem in front of the camera, actually, I don't think the photographer was prepared for her exuberance for life! The women setting up the shoot was interesting and quirky and so extremely nice. I guess life really is like a box of chocolates. You never really do know what your going to get.
