Sunday Musings


Today was a beautiful day here in Washington.
Blue skies and not a cloud.

Unusual for here... fear of Global Warming...
Happiness for sunshine... Relief for sunshine.

I've been trying my hand at making some Day of the Dead Art to be displayed in a window of a local shop. I'm not doing so well... I LOVE Day of Dead celebrations, I'm just not so good at the art... at least in this short amount of time.

But I try... so maybe WIPS to come~

Sundays are always sad days for me... maybe the lack of family close by. Or emptiness of the streets. The strangeness of a day with no activity.... Or maybe the conjoined Sister still haunt me. I don't know...

But I do know that Monday is around the corner and all the possibilities that Mondays hold....

My wonderful friend Renee...


If you've ever wanted to send a prayer, ever wanted to sit and meditate for a moment.
Loss in thought of what has been and what could be....

Sheldon, my friends nephew has been given a short time to live. He is a truly remarkably young man. I do not know him personally but I do know him from his Aunt Renee and what she tells me and others on her blog. Sheldon's life is too short... he should have many more years... He has such strength and conviction. He seems calm and noble. Strong and vulnerable. I wish I could sit by his bedside and hold his hand. Renee is a remarkable woman that has her own challenges in life. She has befriended me and I love her more than she might know. Her sister Jacquie (and is Sheldon's mom) also is having her own struggles... My heart goes out to her....

My heart and love goes out to all of them...

I keep these people close to my heart...

I love you Renee...

Zazzle ... I'm so excited!


I thought I'd give Zazzle a try and order the least amount of anything to see if I liked it!
I got postage stamps and post cards. I think they are so cool I had to share! I'm thinking I might order a cup from them...

What do you think?

Looks like Bill the Cat but it's Bob the Cat

He's going on a journey to California with a "trade" doll that I completed.
Well you can see how excited he is! He's holding a metal fish that says Best Friends.

"What is That?"

A very thought making video...

Coffees On in The a.m Red Wine in The p.m

Come on in....


Come on in... The front door is always open. Come for a short visit or stay awhile. I have plenty of room. My place is a place you let go of everything and just be.

A pot of coffee is on and ready to be poured. Cream or Sugar?
At dusk I like to sit and have a glass of red wine. Would you like to join me?
We can sit inside or on my porch Where the air is clear and the sky is blue. I like to sit here and create my dolls. At night when the fireflies come out we tell stories, play music and laugh.

Now I have several places you could spend the night.Sorry this is my room....
But I have this room that has a fabulous view out the back.
Children seem to like to stay in this room.
And I've built a loft incase you want privacy or maybe just a nap until you start on your next journey.......

I love adding to my new "blog" home

The prairie is where I live sometimes....


Here's the road that will take you to my home. It's just up a ways... not too far.
This is my home a traveling gypsy caravan. I've painted it lots of colors so you won't miss me.
Also it's easy for me to come to you!
I'll have more to add later....

Lulu's story...


Ha! You all might be disappointed... but Lulu said she didn't care her story is her story.
It could have been more gruesome... it could have had so much horror...it could have made people scream and run outside holding their heads... but no her story is her story she says...

Lulu's story:

Lulu had one lover and then she had two more.
Then she had too many, coming in her door.
It got to be too crazy; and she was dizzy with her suitors.
And to be very very honest all of them were losers.

She tried to be so sneaky
and go out on the the town one night.
But all of them they found her and they put up quite a fight.

Who would win dear Lulu? She really did not want any.
She finally had decided that she had, had way too many.

She yelled:

"OH SHUT UP!"
They all turned around and looked.
By then they were all bloody.
Then angry they did look.

"What?" they cried not believing what they had heard.
"Shut up. I don't want any of you!" Flipping them the bird.

She ran... They ran...

She thought this is crazy! She hid beneath some stairs.
Then the devil did appear.
He said "Helllooo Lulluuuu I think we make quite a pair.

"You give me your soul, I'll cut off your head
and all of these lovers will believe that you are dead."

She thought for just a minute and said "It's a deal! If I can re-attach my head
when I want and look so real."

The devil thought and said "It's done now now give to me your head."
With one fell swoop he cut off Lulu's head.
Sure enough it looked like she was dead.

He attached her head with a black ribbon.

Lulu opened up her eyes.
She felt her head and sure enough the devil did not lie.
She blinked, she laughed, she did feel so fine.
But before the devil flew away. He laughed: "Remember you are mine."

Poor Lulu is destined to be with the devil until the end and the end and the end of time.

*side note please. If you go to my other blog
http://pattee-musings.blogspot.com please say a prayer for my friend
Renee http://circlingmyhead.blogspot.com and her sister and nephew.... They are all the most wonderful people*

A couple of things...


Lulu is ready to take her journey to Florida... She has her book with her story. I'm going to leave it up to Michelle if she wants me to put her story on my blog or wait until she reads it first.....

The other thing is poor Grandma Bean....
I'm going to change her price after I write this post. She's so lost here in the Pacific NW.



It's been a sunny day but I am in a dark mood....
