kj said...

i am so glad i found your blog. today: a bit of inspiration: artistically present and gratefully received. yay!

Christy said...

All wonderful sights, especially those last two masterpieces of yours. :)

Bella Sinclair said...

OH YEAHHHHHH! Heehee, we say that all the time around here, and it sends Emma running out of the room in a fit.

I so love your photos! It's like you put me in your pocket while you venture out on your day. Those are beautiful postcards. And all the colors at Alix's! Do some of your clothespins live in that green bag? And Martha on the Dirty cup. HA!

But your little ones...oh my! They are getting more and more adorable! I have to squeeze those little cheeks.:D

First, the girls are adorable. I love the little pig tails! I always enjoyed dressing up my daughter. Girls clothes are so much more interesting and colorful. You sure have an eye for spotting interesting things. I know people who never see, who never sense and never feel for their surroundings. They just looked at or talk on their cell phones. Like Bella, I would like to be inside your pocket as you walk along and find beauty and humor in the simplest of things.

Love the kidlets, the doodles, and your friend's wall art. My favorite surprise: the picture of Martha Stewart on the "dirty" utensils cup. [hooting with laughter]

BloggingQueen said...

Almost forgot -- the Kool-Aid stencil on the sidewalk! Love that!

Am I the only one who remembers the jingle from the Kool-Aid commercials?

oooh! I love this place. I found you from your comment on the peekadoo blog and I see you have "creative explosions" at the top of your page too (that is one of the reasons I started my blog - everything was/is exploding after over 2 years of intent mothering!) Thanks for more inspiration. Come visit my blog when you get a chance!

daisy janie : scoutie girl said...

all loverly, loverly! esp the last 2 pics! so sweet.

(I had a kool-aid iron-on from a gumball machine - my sister always got the first press, and mine looked ghosted - symbolic of my childhood? indeed.)
