Goliath, destroyer of light, discovered bubbles tonight and he can’t get enough. When we came in the house, he spent the next few minutes crying at the door to go out and get more…. Like that shrimp in Finding Nemo “My Bubbles! My Bubbles!”

LOVE painting with a mod look… drippy aqua acrylic paint and a very fun 3D heart with wings. A little vintage sheet music distressed with paint and some lovely scrolls.
Negative space gives this a modern flair! And if you love the aqua and red color combo – you’ll love this painting.
14×14 inch stretched canvas
1/2 inch deep

My uncle and his wife Shannon have quite a menagerie of little critters….
First there were the chickens and a rooster…who live in an rv, turned chicken coop… (I’ll find my pics)
Then last year came the goats… they are tiny, they are feisty, and they are hilarious! (that’s my Aunt Shannon holding her babies)
Did I mention they live a in a VW van?
Now they have more chickens, but these ones have fuzzy feet!
And then quite possibly, the cutest thing I’ve ever seen…. ducklings, who’s first few days in life, were spent swimming around the bathtub! Oh how I want ducklings in my bath tub too!! (reminds me of the movie Fly Away Home with the Canadian Geese. I love that movie)
I seriously need a little plot of land, for a little house, and some little farm animals! I told them next year, I suggest sheep :)
these cool glass water bottles that look like the plastic ones. I love how artful they look, with the clear lids and lack of labels, it’s just so beautiful in it’s simplicity. You can find these lovlies here at Crate and Barrel.
The heck with just weddings… I want one of these sweet and airy garlands in my doorway all the time…. You can find the directions on the Once Wed blog, by clicking here.
Lion brand yarn has oodles of free patterns so for my 2nd knitting project, I’m working on a Cuddle Bunny for my darling g-baby Ava. It will be my first time reading and using a pattern, but luckily I have an awesome yarn shop in town and they are showing me the ropes.
Pam Garrison set the stage with her coffee filter garland that she created after being inspired by an Anthropologie display. She used white and brown filters, colored tissue and sheet music. I didn’t have colored tissue, so I dyed my filters and they came out great. I also used vintage buttons to add more pizazz.
Making these is pretty easy… string up the filters and you have a garland, but if you would like a step-by-step tutorial for exactly how I made mine, with photos, tips, etc, you can purchase my 6 page pdf, via PayPal. All proceeds will go directly to the vet fund for my sick kitty Goliath.

THANK YOU !!!
I’m not trying to make $$$ with the tutorial, it’s more of a fundraiser for Goliath’s vet bill, but if that’s not your thing, that’s ok. Email me and I’ll send you the pdf for free :) My email address is tracy at artwerx.us
After a very long week of high maintenance personalities, a sick kitty, a broken blog… I treated myself to a little tea luxury.
Forte is my absolute favorite tea. It’s super high quality and the flavor can’t be beat. Then there’s the artful appeal, with the silken pyramid infuser. It just makes you smile and when you smell it in your cup and taste it…. well all your worries just float away with each steaming sip.
While in Reedsport, where our vet is located, I picked up a few of my fave Earl Greys, and tried Flora. Oh my word, is it soooo delicious! It’s Hibiscus… it brews red… it’s sweet and delicious!
I also picked up the cafe cup because I don’t like it when my infuser bobs around… you really need the special lid so that it sits in your water nicely and the flavor can come out and mingle in the water. The cup was such a treat to open from the box. It’s a wooden box, so you know I’ll be altering that later, and then inside it was wrapped up in my favorite shade of green tissue paper. Bliss!
I would love to get the ‘dessert’ cups too. They are smaller in size, meant for brewing the teas stronger, and have nifty bamboo covers that act as the lid to hold the tea infuser in place while brewing, then you slip the cup in it to ask as cool sleeve for drinking it. They have a whole line of teas that are perfect dessert teas. Oh the addiction continues!
