Random Thoughts on a Sunday Evening

  1. My favorite painter is Modigliani.
  2. I am very picky about the way I stack my Fiestaware dishes in the cabinet. The arrangement must be aesthetically pleasing....this means no similar colors should touch. I am even anal about the way I stack them in the dishwasher. (Please don't tell)
  3. Red is my favorite color.
  4. Whenever I type my name I always misspell it.
  5. When I was young I wanted to write Nancy Drew books

This is one of my favorite poems. I love the imagery.

The Eagle

He clasps the crag with crooked hands:
Close to the sun in lonely land,
Ringed with the azure world, he stands.

The wrinkled sea beneath him crawls;
He watches from his mountain wall,
And like a thunderbolt he falls.

Alfred, Lord Tennyson

Just some random photos.

Before Rock Band there was Rock Star Barbie.

My cabinet of dishes.

Found these today while cleaning out for the upcoming yard sale. I have to save these for the granddaughters to play with though. (thinking of MK and her love of tiny toys)

Here is a painting I did for a friend that was inspired by the style of Modigliani.

Here are some pictures drawn by my granddaughters.

This Zebra was not drawn, but rather created from zebra printed scotch tape.

This portrait of me is a startling likeness.

These are Japanese kokeshi dolls.


  1. I see that talent runs in the family. Little artists in the making.

  2. I love it all! This is such a wonderful post of pleasant nothings (except they are not nothings to you or me). I love the Rock Band/Rock Star Barbie reference.

  3. That was hilarious and fun to read and see. Love the poem!! And, I am very experienced, you know, at properly stacking a multi-color fiestaware collection... ;-)

    The girls' pictures cracked me up, as did the Rock Band/Rock Barbie pic!

  4. Beth, you are a witness to my analness, maybe I should say a victim. hehe

  5. i Wish I had that many fiestaware dishes!
    a lovely collection!

  6. i Wish I had that many fiestaware dishes!
    a lovely collection!


I'm glad you stopped by and I look forward to your comments. As Dr. Fraser Crane would say, "Hello, I'm listening."
