The child folk love this one - what's not to love!

The cast was selected from the SOUR fan base around the world. The fans were shot purely via webcam. Love the song too!

Wait for it ... wait ... for ... it!

I just got back from our first camping trip as a family!
Details to follow soon - instead I thought I would open up a few of my youtube favourite videos. You have most likely seen them already, but they are all so creative go watch them again.

Thanks for stopping by.

I have been following all the spectacular discoveries of Blomma Finds for many months now and was delightfully surprised to learn yesterday that I won one of the wonderful give-aways!
A gracious 'Thank you' to both Blomma Finds and the wonderful artist behind this sweet print, Rebecca Peragine of Print Pattern Paper! I know two child folk who will be arm wrestling for it - so I'll place it in a communal living area for all to enjoy!

There are so many other gorgeous prints available from this wonderful eco-conscious company!

Check them out!
Thank you for stopping by.

Via British Homes and Gardens, 08/2008

Via Domino

It has always been a non-existent colour for me.
I have neither hated nor loved it. It has just never come into play. I have never worn it, painted with it, decorated with it, or really ever noticed it.
It is little K's favourite colour and ever since this past gruesome winter, I have had it on the brain.
There is something so enticing about the luxurious depth of an eggplant purple that I can no longer resist. Cool yet enveloping.
For months now I have been working on an oil painting in my head (featuring purple) and it is just about time to lay it out on canvas. This will take some time and strategizing to work out, however, since Mr. K moved his studio from the dungeon to a proper space out of the house. I used to be able to come down stairs after the child folk were in bed and putter about on a painting at my leisure. It was perhaps the only perk of Mr. K working entirely from home.

I do have my studio, of course, which I draw, paint watercolour, and sew in - but it is not big enough for the size of canvas that I want to paint on ( 34"x 64").

Truth be told - I am an extremely messy oil painter.

So I will have to book some time at Mr. K's and get down to business.

I adore this Rachel Pally retro style swim suit.
It looks so pretty on the model - of course!
Thanks for stopping by.

Happy Fourth!

I want to wish all of my American friends and family a spectacular Happy Fourth of July!

I love my peeps south of the border, but during the last eight gruelling years I though we were going to have to break up.

When Super 'O' was elected I think the universe released a collective sigh of relief.
I am here to thank you - ya done good, folks!

Have a wonderful day - you deserve it.

Thanks for stopping by.
