Uplifted from Down Under

meet my dear friend and mentor
Rikki Stubbs
an email from her this depressing sunday morning is just what i of colour and decor and my favorite place: sydney australia. i've got my ear buds stuffed in my ears piping endless moody tunes into my head as i pour over rikki's impressive portfolio...all accomplished since i worked for her back in the days of freedom and wonder. my mind is scheming. i'm aching for worldly encounters, things i'm not so used to but know so well & feed this impossible heart of mine. yes i can is muffled by the 't as i strain to hear its promise of an adventurous and glamorous future. meanwhile i 'll go feed the chickens and scrub yet another round of pots n pans. how i wish to be with my dear friends again!

Wings & Pixies

Amelia Jane Murray " Lady Oswald"'s true. I have an elf problem. I'm working on Christmas designs centering around elf portraits and feeling like i need a little inspiration. Lo and Behold...i ran across these little elf illustrations and immediately felt that tummy flip of familiarity that lets me know i'm on to something. Its true, i can admit that now...fairies and ladybugs are a few of my favorite things! :) Along with my Sicilian potter soul and Pioneer bits there is some Victorian fairy stuff in there too. I'm sure of it.

Date Farmers

Im finding I have have a passion for politics all of the sudden...Obama feels like a friend to underdogs, the artists, the regular good folk, the kind hearted believers in goodness...this folksy propaganda art flips my skirt. I've always loved the crusty ol'Mexican retablos this is IT for me!I found this via Anahata's ever inspiring blog - the perfect start to a new week.

Yes We DID!

Obama by Shepard Fairey YES WE CAN AND DID AND WILL.....

Its the morning after election night and it feels a bit like Christmas when for a while it seemed that Santa had forgotten about all of us Americans on the island of misfits and then it happened...through the worst storm ever Rudolph kept his promise and came for us and and made us believe that miracles do indeed happen if you just hold out. Check out this site about the artist Shepard Fairey and his art's role in Obama's campaign. My heart is swooning with hope and for the first time in my life i truly feel proud of my country.

Pea Green and Stump Henge

meet my dear friend and sister of junk shari. she is my partner in misplaced farm girl crimes : collecting tin buckets, stuffing storage spaces with treasures and choosing a margarita on a stump over any fancy get together. yep...i recently went on (another) field trip to her farm and helped her at the Olde Market at Pea Green - an annual tag sale in the middle of nowhere . Check out my flickr - such a farm filled fun day .

I'm Dreaming of a ....

Halloween...check. October...check. I'm a little groggy from being a Goth Hannah Montana ( husband was Goth Billy Rae complete with saggy wide legger pants with tons of chains on them) lastnight but am finding comfort in surfing etsy for cute weird little things like this to get me in the Christmas spirit. Anyone who knows me knows it don't take much. I think this little pinecone elf ornament is a possibility for myself and the chittles. Mom, don't look!
have a lovely Sunday.
