43 and Counting...

Old Wise Owl

I'm feeling my age today.


I need to wear glasses when reading.

Need to.

I've got sexy white streaks of hair.


My hands look wrinkly.

I've got too much loving in the belly region.

jiggle jiggle belly fat
why can't I get rid of that?

But hey, I'm the same age as the lovely Padma of Top Chef.

So I ain't that bad...

In Search of Miracles!

 Meet SARK (Susan Ariel Rainbow Kennedy) with her funky bookmark!

Do you dream in color or black in white?

Are you a neutral or a neon color?

Do you drink rainbow smoothies or black coffee?

Do you wear cozy socks or too-snug high heels?

If you are in need of a little color, juice, oomph, chuckle and joie de vivre  (sp?) then please meet

Susan (aka SARK).

I discovered her fun creative books a while ago from a fellow butterfly dream catcher, my friend/beauty-filled actress Grace Lee.

 Look at the Mega-Watt Smile! ;)

Both of these ladies inspire me to believe in miracles, and to believe in MYSELF.

I am on a daily search for miracles in my life---please send me your good vibes--I need it desperately today!

What time is it?

It's Inspiration Time Of Course!

Happy Friday to you, and you and especially you!

I hope you are:

 sewing, singing, thrifting, laughing, gluing, 
mending, shining, giving, crafting, 
caring, glittering, cleaning, and loving 
right this very moment!

(If not, go out and DO something!)

Stay happy and creative people and have a wonder-filled fun weekend.

And now let me introduce you to some brilliant ladies...

Too Cute!

Sweet Precious Stuffies

I want to call her Penny.

His name is Baxter!

He looks like a Franklin.

A lovely woman named Erika Olson Gross in Minnesota makes these most incredibly cute animals. 

(Baby chow-chow cute...)

Her animals have a wonderful vintage-y feel. (Heirloom worthy for sure!)

Just look at their sweet little clothing!

Who doesn't love a fuzzy animal in jammies?

So much personality--and the craftsmanship looks really stellar.

 She has an Etsy shop called Fox and Owl .

I can't wait until it gets restocked.

Lets just hope I have enough in the piggy bank!

I'm coming for you Penny!

 Life is but a (surreal) dream...

Am I awake? 
Am I for real?
Do you see what I see?

(Wow, I wish I was as talented as this artist.)

So cool.
I'm almost frightened at how cool this is.

Looking at this image, 
my mind is blown away

eating a coconut cream popsicle.

Am I dreaming?
I'm still not sure.

What's not to love?

Chow Chow Obsessed!

Yup...I gots it bad....

I have never owned one of these cutie pies but a girl can dream, can't she?

Yes, Chow Chows aren't known for being very friendly.

They definitely don't like strangers touching their fur (darn).

But DANG IT, they are so friggin' cute.

Don't you just want to squeeze this little sucker and call him all sorts of squishy names?

I know I do!

Come here Squish Muffin Cheeks, mama is here!!!
