Cute baby banner...

by me.
For my mom's friend from work.
It was for her baby shower this weekend.
She's going to hang it in Lily's room.
Love the colors in this one.

explosions of color.

Last week...

was a blur & today was the start of another.
Which is why it took me a week to post.
But that's ok because I found this blog,
which was a super, just by chance find.
I was searching for "blurry photography"
to go along with this post & because
I've always loved blurry pics, which
led me to find these beautiful pics from
this website by this artist,
Happy browsing & cheers to drinking on Monday!

Newest project...

are moss covered letters in different sizes,
to be hung on the wall or set on a shelf.
Each will have a different fabric backing,
as well as the option of having a
variety of birds, butterflies, etc.
attached to them, OR
without anything attached in sets of
funny words in varying fonts
for a more modern feel.
They have numerous possibilities.
Still playing with the design & might do some
with the fabric showing on the sides.

example of the fabric backing.

that will be added to my etsy shop.
Finishing up a few more things &
then my shop will be up & running!
To be continued...

still life oil paintings found on
I prefer still life as opposed
to pieces of movement
because it makes you feel like time
has stopped for just a moment,
allowing you to find quiet among the chaos.

This is a funny post from me...

but it had to be done.
I am not a cook, it's just not something I enjoy.
I do it out of necessity & most of the time
I make things that don't involve a lot of
ingredients, a lot of time or any cooking at all.
I usually eat fresh dishes with organic
vegetables & fruit, cheese & the addition of
some sort of bread, tortilla, wrap, etc.
But...last night was different.
I had picked an eggplant from the garden &
was determined to make something great from it.
The result was a complete sucess
& I was so proud of myself
I had to take a picture of it
(of course after I tasted a couple bites)!
It was my version of eggplant parmesan
because I didn'thave a lot of the required ingredients
I just went with the flow.
Below is the list of what I used
for my own future reference:
Sauce-1 1/2 cans of tomatoes, capers, garlic, olives,
basil from the garden, olive oil, salt & pepper
Eggplant-sliced, then a wash of flour, eggs, s&p,
covered in homemade bread crumbs, oregano
& put in the frying pan
Cheese mixture-havarti, feta, buffalo mozzarella,
parmesan, eggs, s&p,yellow onions, more basil & garlic
Then to the baking pan I added a layer of sauce,
lasagna noodles to cover, then the eggplant,
cheese mixture & repeated,
added a parmesan topping & baked for 45 min. @ 350.
It was so good I'm eating it for lunch too. Yum!
Has anyone else cooked a great vegetarian meal lately?
