Anything’s possible house

I was watching X-Men: Days of Future Past (excellent, by the way) and the scene when they visit Peter at home made me think about houses, crazy-colored houses.

When I was getting together this week’s Wednesdays Are For Watercolor (sign up here!), these were on my desk. I love having lots of goodies to look at.

Yay green!

My favorite part

Posted by on Apr 16, 2017 in outside, spring | 0 comments

Easter was last weekend, and it had lots of good parts. Sitting down a family-favorite meal: white beans, cole slaw, skillet potatoes, and cornbread on Friday night. Easter egg hunt on Saturday morning. Lunch on the porch at Sal & Mookie’s – warm sunshine and delicious food, followed by a visit to the Natural Science Museum. Easter service at my parent’s church, my mom playing the piano. Easter dinner, and all the talking and visiting in between.

Probably my favorite part was Saturday afternoon after we got home from the museum and running errands. We sat on the porch and visited while Jeffrey and Lan tended the grill.  It was twilight, the gloaming, such a pretty, gentle part of the day as it slides into evening.

I’d love to have more of this – outdoors, easy talk, and enjoying one another. They’re my favorite.

What’s on your vision/inspiration board?

Posted by on Apr 13, 2017 in mixed media, spring, vision board ~ inspiration board | 0 comments

When I was little, I went with a babysitter to her house. I don’t remember anything about it except for the bulletin board in her bedroom. It was thick with ticket stubs, programs from plays, spirit ribbons, and dried corsages. It was the most wondrous thing I’d ever seen and I wanted one, too.

I’ve had a bulletin board in my room ever since. These days my bulletin board is less about saving ephemera (I definitely keep those things, just in a book) and more about being a vision/inspiration board. It has seasonal art and quotes (lots from this calendar – this is the second year I’ve gotten one and I love it) and a photo or two.

When I’m at my desk, I spend a fair amount of time staring into space, meaning my eyes land on that vision/inspiration board a lot.

I put the things I like on it and don’t think too hard about it. When I realize I’m not getting much “juice” from looking at it, that’s when I know it’s time to rearrange and/or put up different stuff.
