I was a 2 drawer junk girl myself until this very minute when I decided to add a third junk drawer. Right here.
On my blog.
The reason being, I keep having these random ideas, inspirations, good stuff to share that don't necessarily "fit" anywhere.
Just like the amazing stuff in my junk drawer:)))
So, without further ado, be prepared to be amazed, to gawk in wonder, to scratch your head in confusion, over the random things I will share with you each Friday. Why Fridays??? Because you will probably need the entire week-end to ponder and muse (or be seriously concerned) over what gets trapped in my head and then released on Fridays:)))
Let the Randomness begin:
Eddie has a new cinema hero. He rarely "looks up" to anyone as you know, but I caught him hitting rewind and practicing his French on this, so thought it needed sharing:

That Old Sun Magic: My favorite product to remove oil paint (even after it's dried) out of my clothes:)) Those who have seen me paint in person always tease me about wearing such nice clothes to paint in. As all artists have come to know--EVENTUALLY YOUR ENTIRE WARDROBE BECOMES A PAINTING OUTFIT:)) An artist friend gifted me with this at a workshop last year and I am still on my first little tub of it.
Those at my Nashville workshop saw me sporting some Magenta oil paint on my silk shirt the last day of the workshop. Sun Magic erased every trace of it:)! To visit their website, click here
A Piece of Pretty:
We all need little spots of beauty. I don't even remember where I bought the little hanging vase below, but it has made me smile more than once:) I had forgotten I had it 'til I cleaned out all those storage tubs ---now it's hanging above my tubby with some clippings of petunias...in purple of course!
It has been said that courage is not an absence of fear. It is feeling the fear and doing it anyway:))
My New Zealand friend, Romiley, shared this video with me this week---it is such a reflection on life itself--through the eyes of an 8 year old girl on her first ski jump--thanks Rom!

Things to Worry About:
Word has it Eddie Pierre is in training for laundry duty. Supposedly, he and his siblings are good (?) at the sorting portion.....sort of.
Word also has it he likes to sleep in....a lot....and DOES NOT like to be disturbed...
So that's it. Ponder on Eddie practicing French, reclaiming your paint clothes, fear vs. courage, small pleasures, and laundry sorting cats. That should keep you busy for awhile:)))
