big day . . .

Tomorrow Anais is turning eight. Pretty big stuff. Also, it's the last day of school for my girls... so - I'll have my hands full. Planning on taking them and their friends to Chateau Laurie for high tea - just because it's fun to do something fancy once in a while.
Above: Anais doing what she does best - torturing our cat Fergus with love:).

tiger kittens flower story . . .

A tiger kitten flower story pattern to show you today:
There once was a magic garden. It was deep inside the land of Summer and it was full of enchanted flowers. The tiger kittens loved it especially for it's brightness and came often (on sunny days) to lie around on the magic grass.

NY moments . . .

I procrastinate a lot. I should have blogged these right after I came back from New York... and shared all my New York moments with you back in May... and now it's second week of June and I am late... but not a giver upper. Here are some things that made me love NY a bit more this time:
Japanese men smoking skinny 5 inch cigarettes outside 'spa for men only'.
 (possibly crazy) homeless man on 5th Ave telling me 'Girl, you're crazy!'... when I was trying to open a door that was obviously locked.
 Bleach blond lady tanned to a crisp (resembling a negative) making a young black man do a double take:)
 Public urination by a woman wearing a long skirt (that's right... that happened).
 A young man telling me 'careful, these shoes cost  $300' when I accidentally bumped into him on a very busy street.

c. me, Elizabeth Olwen and Michelle Bencsko (Cloud9) - fun meeting at the show:).

A little 'out of the ordinary' or 'odd' could really brighten your day!

just a little wild . . .

For today's show & tell I brought these little jungle animals. They aren't too wild... but very pleased to be a part of this happy repeat:).

Psikhouvanjou . . . new plates . . .

Just in time for the picnic season (I'm pretty sure I've just invented it) there are some new plates with my designs at Psikhouvanjou. I'm going to keep the one with the sun at my desk... for all the upcoming rainy or cold days. It would make my thoughts warmer... I'm sure:).
