Musical Beds

this little AngelGirls Room
(Harper & Sadie)
looks like a storm came
tore it up
(for real-end of July!)
What a blessing to
make room for
Lucy & Cate
much much magic needed still

"what's going on in there?"
dangerous tools vs. nursery rhymes
this was the only safe place

this is a glitter admirer's dream
two large containers of GLITTER! 
I'm so loving the contents
 but not crazy about the containers
(plastic - yucky)
however, I'm loving this jar
(vintage is best)
so - let me introduce the two
out with the new, in with the old
oh, happy day!
& just when it couldn't get
more magical
Magic is Everywhere
you just have
 to make it

It seems that today
 is a work day for some.
"If it ain't ants, it's roaches"
to quote
 my BF from Mississippi. 
 A water leak again, just an ailment
this ol' house.
 Helpers came quickly
 & we are very thankful
 to have water again.

alas, it was a work day for some,
however, Beatrix heard the noise
but chose a nap
(not a work day for her)
 napping still!

making a little travel/journal book this fine day
with my precious friends
Leigh, Katherine & Carolyn
Beatrix Potter & Roxy
had to join us
in my already full office
(made some time ago)

working, creating, gluing
tying, stamping, glittering,
 punching, laughing, cutting,
cleaning, playing
stepping over Roxy
& baby sitting with
Beatrix Potter
what a fun fun time
sweet sweet
Forgot to take a photo
of the finished
will take & post soon

It's a joy to create with artists
that know their style &
want to make a project their own
yet, are open to suggestions from:
 supplies on hand
experience from others
purpose of project
workablity of creation


have a fun safe trip, dear friends
& remember
"Why do, when you can over do?
Why just pack, when you can overpack?", F.N.

Beatrix Potter
(almost 4 lbs.)
 loves the herb garden
& wasn't crazy
about the big loud blender

Today is the day for making pesto
with basil & parsley
from my herb garden

Add garlic, p cheese,
toasted pine nuts
first cold press olive oil
basil & parsley
in an industrial blender
oh, so very yummy
on just about everything
The chef approves!
a magical kitchen &
 some homegrown goodness
do you think the "chef"
will grill outside tonight?
(pesto is my dish!)

NOTE TO SELF:  make rosemary/orange pesto next!

arting the walls of the back stairs
still creating some magic
however & but
how do you compete
with this magic?

 Today is a gift
that's why
they call it
the present

& a household guest
greeting travelers of the back stairs!

Child's Play
a toy snow shovel from Maine
a toy lawn more from Georgetown
a toy shovel from Hico
counted cross stitch by me
an old toy watering can
a note from Harper Elizabeth
(missing her BB)
up the numbered backstairs
still need a touch of magic
stairs starts with # 1
(need wide angle lens)
went back in the house
to get iphone
thought a better take a shot
of stairs with
dropped pearls
trompe l'oiel
(created by my Lil Cuzin)
(at my instruction)
of course!
as I think about this in my mind
- of how to magically embellish toys -
I'll post the results!

Yesterday was a play day
with friends
today is work day which
always includes laundry
Oh, Happy Day!
 however ,because
of the newly made older laundry closet
When I played in Austin & Georgetown
I found this pillow
about normal
"Normal is just a setting on a dryer"
you've heard me say that many times!
works in this magical castle!!
