I took Mitsty off Etsy (kinda cute rhyme) and she will be my March giveaway! Comment on this blog post and I will pick someone March 31st!
Mitsty is a jointed doll and sort of primitive. She has vintage lace and vintage flower (and one that I made myself).... So please join in this giveaway...
Ok now those cute little oinkers. I found out that yes.... I have the swine flu... I've been very sick for about 3 weeks... I hope I'm on the end of this ride... now just a fever and aching body...
How could something so cute give a person such grief!
I started this Gypsy Caravan Blog for Renee...
You can go there by clinking this link
A little over a year ago Renee and I talked of running away as gypsy's... I'd buy the Gypsy Caravan and I would pick her up and we would travel the world.... as long as I was her personal chef! Of course I would be...
Later I created this blog for her and I to hang out in. A visual space to play.
If you'd like to read a bit more come on over to our band of 45 gypsy sisters that loved Renee.
The lowly dandelion... I read a book once about prison and the perspective of a man that didn't get to go outside. But he could look out a small window. He saw a dandelion and thought it was the most beautiful flower in the world... and so even tho I don't like them in my garden, I look at them differently.
Still grieving the loss of Renee....
Haven't been able to teach on my ning or make dolls these days....
I need a boost! Any suggestion?
Your spirit swells in my heart.
I can't catch my breath.
Aching fills my body like a deep longing or loss.
Tears slip down my cheeks on to my keyboard.
When I look up to the stars at night. I'll pick one and say "That's Renee" and I'll chat with you.
I will so ever be thankful to have known you and had you in my life. Even if it was too short.
I will hold you in my heart.
I will hold your family in my heart.
I will think of you often and all that you've taught me.
I will value every friendship I have made through knowing you.
It's starting to feel like Spring (sorry to my dear friends that are still covered in snow and cold)
Rebirth, renewal, starting fresh... new...
With those words in mind I think of Renee and her stages of passing. I wish her a safe journey. That her family will be held in love. And all of us that loved will be held together.
I live in the Pacific NW with my husband, cat and 7 chickens. My son lives a few miles away. I feel blessed to have 2 people that love me and I love them back. I've been making dolls for several years. From odd to cute... Halloween is one of my favorites.
I feel grateful and blessed everyday.
I've always had an eye for odd and unusual things. I'm attracted to bones, skulls, feathers.
I love dry humor and dark clothing. I'd rather have green olives than a chocolate cake. Coffee instead of tea. A walk on the beach or a dirt road instead of a mall or fancy clothing store. I love birds (that includes my chickens) prefer cats over dogs... but I love dogs.
I'm nomadic and would like to travel 9 months out of the year.
That's a little about me...
