I heart turquoise

I just discovered  this site for making photo collages.  There are several layouts, and it’s super easy to make collages for your blog. 

These are just some pictures I took around home the other day, on a turquoise theme. Top left is Francisco, the bullimic Siamese fighting fish. To be fair, he’s a recovering bulimic… when we first got him he would only chew food and spit it out; we never saw him actually ingest anything for several weeks, but now he seems to enjoy his three miniscule pellets of food each morning and evening. 

The can of paint (bottom right) was used on the wall (bottom left) and some paintings I did last fall. Pictured with it is my favourite brush, which I’ve used to paint walls as well as portraits (including several of the ones on my gallery page).

I’m working on an idea for several upcoming posts, so soon there should be something more interesting here….. stay tuned!


Tying one on

Have you noticed that aprons are everywhere?  The old fashioned apron is cool again, in sort of an ironic, retro way.  I must admit, I’ve been wanting one for a while.  I’m not sure why… maybe looking the part will make me a better cook!  I finally found the perfect one on Etsy made by Boojiboo, and it came yesterday.

Check it out, not only is it super-cute but it’s turquoise!  With little pictures of mid-century furniture!  It’s really well made, too.  Boojiboo is actually three people, a mother and two daughters, who make their own patterns and sew them by hand… beautifully.

You just know I’ll be cooking up old-fashioned pot roasts in this apron, martini in hand, a la Betty Draper. ‘Cause I do that.

….and in case you don’t realize how perfect the colour is, here’s a peek at what we’ve been doing for the past couple of evenings….
