did my best to hang out in lazyville today, but i always forget that a day off for the girls isn't the same as a day off for us! there's a continuous need for food, attention, fighting, mess-making, and so on, that does not go on vacation. so since doodling isn't likely until after hours, here's a little photo tour of things that make me happy around the house:
got these cute little stacking mugs this week, and couldn't decide on a color this morning so i had coffee from all of them.
a little garlic jar i found in spain.
a local roaster gave me these nifty coffee bean sacks. i stretched them on canvas and put them on the living room wall.
a french book with great illustrations that i found at the semiannual library sale.
a bookshelf of curious objects: my husband's grandfather made the seahorse, i found the little bowl at arcosanti in arizona (an artist workshop in paradise valley), and heather made the beautiful sunprint.
this crazy owl piggy bank mysteriously appeared here yesterday. it scared the crap out of me last night when i came downstairs because it has glow in the dark eyes.
and my favorite pillow.
now looking forward to a peaceful evening in lazyville with my lovely one (today is his birthday!), a long doodle session and a glass of shoo fly shiraz.
hope you all had a great christmas!
