What will the day unlock for you?
Perhaps new adventures? Will you notice little tiny things? Isn't it incredible how our perception, can totally change our outlook? Actually, it can change a whole experience...
I brought you the first rose of the season. (Oh, how I love this one rose bush we have that gives cake frosting roses...)
Or, do you feel sorta grouchy? Grouchy is good too, gives us a chance to let it all out (without hurting anyone of course). If I ever feel grouchy, I go into my room, and I scream as loud as I can, "I AM SOOOOOOOOO GROUCHY." And then, I feel worlds better. Although sometimes, I have to say it a few times. Have you ever noticed how sometimes the grouch monger visits for no good reason? What's up with that? ;)
I think the key is to purge those feelings so you can continue to skip and not stomp down the path ;)
Days at the country house can be so peaceful and lovely, a stroll outside with the extra loud birds, is food for the soul. This morning, I was out there just wanting to hug the air it was so warm and cozy.
I watch nature do its thing, with bees buzzing around with pollen...
Nature is just soooo amazing, isn't it?
Baby is soo adorable, when you go out walking around the yard, she finds you and strolls with you, and is just so tickled to be with you... Now that's love. We go down paths lined with wild flowers, that sit between my gallery and my soon to be office.
Everything around here was lined with metal by the owners who lived here for 30+ years. If it was standing, it got covered in metal siding. Mister Lovee bought the property ages and ages ago, because of the amazing views and the land, with fruit trees etc. We make the best of all the metal, thank goodness, my room is not metal... But it can be cute too. I mean, I love my little metal barrio style gallery... And, with the woodpeckers around here, maybe metal is a good thing?
The woodpeckers at my parents have sawed perfect holes, lots of them, through this lovely door they have out back. Isn't that awful?
Anyhow, I think I'll hide out in the gallery for a few days, since I am still not ready to tackle the studio. We are doing a little exciting construction in the back of our property that will take a few years, so the gallery is now housing a bunch of stuff while we turn Mister Lovee's old workshop into storage. It is chaos of stuff here, I tell ya, just chaos. But, it keeps me busy, and that is good.
See, I veered again, sheeesh. Okay I was telling you about strolling with my pooch. Our favorite place to stroll and play and hideout, is through a little corridor of trees and shrubs. It is easy to get lost in your child-like imagination right in there...
The sun peeks through ever so enchantingly...
A little slice of heaven lives in all things that grow...
And we leave, paw prints in the sand ;)
As we stroll, random thoughts appear. I wonder, where my Raggedy Anne doll from childhood is? Did she survive? I found this faded photo of me in my nursery, surrounded by dolls, and it made me want my Raggedy...
Those were the days ;)
When I went inside, I passed by one of my dollhouses and noticed, an unknown visitor.
Yes, a new addition to my family, left by a male fairy. Mister Lovee Fairy Twinkle Toes. Remember last year, he left a little tiny girl in my big yellow dollhouse? I love it when he leaves treasures hidden like that for me... No matter how silly they are. Is this a cake topper or something, haha ;)
We love her.
Well, I best be off to check on my shoes that I did surgery on yesterday. I am so proud of myself, I hope my work holds. I really should have done this ages ago to the gold and silver woven ones...
I used clamps and anvils to hold them down while the stinky but wonderful epoxy dried. I am tickled, you just can't tell I did any work on them. You know, I go shoe shopping, but nothing tickles my fancy, like my old tattered shoes I love so...
Oh, and I finally got to play with my super cute mushroom loves from Miss Sonya's mushroom swap. It was a ton of work, and she did a lovely job, thank you Miss Sonya!! (she also has a brand new space, wax and wool, yipppeee!)
Have a great day my friends!! Let's all giggle a little (or a lot), they say it's good for the soul ;) I am itching for my netflix to get here so I can get back into my clay today. I love to have a movie on while I sculpt, that or This American Life, and I am happy. I made a few little creatures this weekend ;)
Later I will scrounge up the courage to tell you about the dreams that I have that seem to be connected to reality. It is all very strange. Mom believes me, Dad says it is just coincidence :) All I know is that I dream. I don't have cable or a radio with news in my room, so I am not getting subliminal messages. And I am not crazy. Am I? ;)
