Odds and Ends the Week

Mom had a funny blog post Saturday about a pork marinade recipe and cat farts. I found this wonderful coleslaw recipe that would be really good with it (the pork recipe, not the cat farts):

I love everything about AuntieDi's ETSY shop - her candles are dreamy and her jewelry is divine. I have to say the pieces I drool over the most are her clever lampwork rings. She finds 'one of a kind' lampwork beads and fashions them into the cutest rings. I bought this one earlier this year.

And now I REALLY want this one:

Get over to AuntieDi's shop and check out her other wonderful items, just don't buy that ring!

Just in time to tickle my twisted sense of humor, I've discovered this clever ETSY Artist. Check out this print:

Too clever I'd say! Here's another one - Astaireing Contest - can you guess? Three cheers for Etsian artist Kate Gabrielle!

I'm also happy to discover I'm not the only person who plays with her food - check out this kiwi fruit.

I did another watercolor last night. A composite of a barn photo and a pasture image. Check it out over on FLICKR.

Finally, today I start chapter one of what's sure to be one of the greatest books ever written. My friend Elise and I are going to co-author a story; trading off a chapter at a time. Now how to begin - "It was a dark and stormy night..."

That's all for now. Have a great Sunday...

Ha! I get up to relax on Sunday morning and I see a command from you to get to work! My latest post therefore includes an homage to NothingLikeIt :)

I've been off the computer for a while so I'm going to have to take a trip through what the fabulous life of Robin has been like for the last couple of weeks!
