hello friends,
thank you all for playing my little game. it helps tremendously! and i appreciate your, in particular, thoughts!
i was unable to scan last week  so i couldn't partake in the challenge. I will try to pop in a few times.

i am in the desert. its spring break. we up in the cold dark mountains come down for a glimpse of leaves and a lung full of fragrant blossoms. it is warm. we are relaxing while the car goes to get that screeching noise taken care of...:/

Define: Your Art

Who am I according to the Cloud ?

I am in the midst of reviewing, reviving and reincarnating the way I project my art to the world.
Cyber - speaking.
Funny how hard it is to nail it down in tidy little keywords.
Funny how i'm not entirely sure what i'm doing! :)  I know what I am drawn to and what I feel. But labelling it? Whoa there horsey!
If you please, I'd love to hear from YOU!

Here are some questions:

1. What strikes you most about my work?

2. Is there a name, title movement that you feel my work fits in? (e.g. folk, rustic, neo...etc...)

3. If you had to spout off 5 words to describe what you see here what would they be?

4. Make up a phrase!

Whoever comments will be entered into a random GIVEAWAY of a MILADY NECKLACE! winner may choose!
Drawing will be April 4th. So please...think it over !:) I value your thoughts.

Thank you in advance,

Your truly,

Long overdue...and a big Thank You!

To Hi Happy Panda's Rachel, for taking the time to gush her gratitude for winning my Suprise Giveaway way back in November.  Rachel is one amazing photographer, mama documentary artist of life's know, the kind of adventures peeking in windows, looking up in trees, exploring places and meeting people.  Her blog takes me travelling - just the way I like it, down the road less travelled.
She and her family are a delight and I am so happy she loves her prize.

BTW if you ever wonder where i've disappered to or would like to see wht makes milady tick...i am most likely feeding my soul on Pinterest
It is the greatest invention ever! I will never need a magazine again. Visual salvation. love it!

Drawing Challenge: Blanket

Handmade quilts by my grandmother's grandpeople.

restoration hardware - but you get the idea :)

Makes me think of moms and babies,
Of grandmas and hand stitched gatherings
Of ladies around a big table,
Chatting and assembling
The scraps and memories of fabric worked to the bone.

We have alot of faux fuzzy lamby blankets around the house.
We buy them at the store.
But they are warm and cozy and make you look like a giant teddy bear
in soft browns and creams.

Good thing too because it is still freezing here. A fresh blanket of snow the last few days.Christmas like.
We live under piles of blankets to read a book, watch a movie, and I wrap one around my neck like a shawl like some old woman from a nursey rhyme as I walk from one end of the house to the other.

I didn't draw but let my great grand ladies speak for me with their beautiful stitches and floral remnants.
I am lucky to have what's left of them.

For more blankets visit the adorable quilt covered Greta for more!
