drawing a day ~ week10 Originally uploaded by dressform.
we are painting... the dining room... first we did 3 walls in chocolate - today we are tackling the trim and the ceiling... tannish white... the last two walls will be a nice tan.... this in and of itself would be fun except for the fact that i've been sneezing all day.... i guess the upside is i can't really smell the paint!
the week of drawing... the last yellow.... bye bye birdie? by the by i'm onto green [granted the first one is kind of yellowy.... don't say i didn't warn you]. i'm thinking that even though i can't smell them, the paint fumes are getting to me....
i have been meaning to post these links for weeks, months.... almost eons now. so here they are... go click around [i'm sorry some of these came from somewhere, but i can't remember where...]:
if i could own a cool new bike i'd get one from here
a very nice magazine the drama
shop local [for me] doe
this one came from nebo.... do you need color advice? or just want to look at pretty colors? of course you do!
your pet deserves swank gear.
i'm a sucker for all things mini... someone on flickr pointed these out... sorry again for the brain fart, but... yes i dig their clothes [is it so wrong?]. but you have to check out these mini sweater holiday ornaments.
when mav sent me that lovely package chocolate was included. she sent the barcelona bar which was heavenly... but all the options look purty darn amazing!
this morning in the new york times was an article on alzheimer patients and their responses to art. my dad emailed it to me too... knowing i would like it. the gist... the art had a calming effect on the patients. and those that had lost ability to communicate about other things in life somehow managed to speak clearly about the art they were viewing. i think all people who think that art is a waste of time or would like to cut funding for art in schools need to read this article. repeatedly. rinse and repeat until they get it! [ok it's probably hopeless that they'll get it. but.... worth a shot, right?]
and finally for all you book loving folk... the open library . granted not the same as holding a book in your own hands, but.... sigh.... tara i particularly thought of you for this one....
