Happy Birthday Chase ! !

Our Chase just turned 9. His birthday cake had something of a space ship theme and was made by Mom. He is so bright and responsible. It amazes me, 9 years old already! It seems like only yesterday he was a itty bitty baby. Oh, and we forgot the candles, so we used a tea candle, he didn't mind; he was only interested in doing some damage to that cake.
A great day!

Did I Miss The First Day Of Spring ?

Yes I think I did, The crazy things going on in Washington are distracting me, but IT IS SPRING anyway... even though it is snowing.

Est ce que j'ai oublie les premier jour du printemps? Oui je crois, je suis distraite par les folies de notre capitale mais le printemps est avec nous quand meme... meme si il neige ce matin.

And it is time to go out and pay our tribute to nature.

Il est temps de sortir de nos maisons et faire honneur a la nature.

Time to start being aware of the sun and don a large and lovely hat.

C'est le moment de faire attention au soleil et de se trouver un joli grand chapeau.

Time to rejuvenate our wardrobe and to look sharp and fresh.

Le temps de rafraichir notre garde-robe, et de se trouver une nouvelle elegance.

But it is also the time for new love, or renewed love, romance and tenderness.

Mais c'est aussi le temps des amours nouveaux et des amours renouveles.

Thank you to : for the gorgeous free images of spring.

Hugs et tendresses a toutes et tous

Freebies by the hundreds

My cup runneth over! We can never have enough old wall papers, biology/botany plates, antique book covers, vintage letters for our art, or simply to admire. I just discovered this fabulous place where you can see, covet and grab many of those goodies, and they are FREE.

Not Your Average Sock Monkey hearts (drum roll, please,)

I picked up a few examples of the lovely stuff they offer, and that you can use for your own art work. I suppose that make them "second hand freebies" :-)
I just love this french poster urging us to save petrol and gas...Although I would certainly not advise to store the stuff in containers in your garage. But the poster is great!

Texte en Francais : Je viens de trouver ce superbe site pour les images gratuites, il y en a des centaines que vous pouvez utilisez dans votre art et vos collages gratis. Tres bien, tres bien !
j'aime beaucoup. Il y a beaucoup de gravure francaise. Je crois que les francais, au 18eme et 19eme siecle etaient les rois de l'image imprimee (un petit peu de chauvinisme, la, mais enfin c'est pas trop mechant ;-)

I guess today is the big day when the do their Big Vote in Washington. So what do you think? are we going to get Health Care or are we going to remain a free people? All this depressing stuff make me want to go and do art some more.
Toodles For Now
