... well... lots of things but fruit is definitely something I don't eat enough of! Videos like this one doesn't help any, it just makes fruit a little creepier for me. haha I won't even get into Fruit of the Loom or California raisins. Whenever I do eat fruit, I love it, and I think to myself, dang! I'm going to eat more fruit, but it never works out that way. It's so sweet and I am not a big sweets person. I get my sweets in the form of bread, noodles, potatoes, etc... My Mom came out and stayed with me for a few months after my brother died and after a month or so she asks me if I ever eat fruit! haha I ate some that day & washed it down with a little guilt. ;) I do buy it, (mostly apples & bananas) but if the guys don't eat it, it just gets thrown out to the squirrels & other varmints around here. I like to buy apples because those last the longest & look so pretty on my tiered fruit plates. I eat them with my eyes. ;) Maybe I'll make a big fruit salad & keep it in the frig? Got a good recipe for me? Do you eat your daily servings of fruit? Hope your day is "fruitful". ( You know I couldn't resist that right?!) haha
A Big Shout Out goes to CynArt for featuring my Spring Garden Angel in her lovely Etsy Treasury! Be sure to check out her shop full of her wonderful watercolors!
I think Lady Gaga's is fabulous. Her make-up, costumes, true performance art. She's refreshing don't you think? Honestly I wouldn't buy her music, I would keep it if someone gave it to me, (sorry Lady Gaga) but I'd stop dead in my tracks to watch her! Well if you would like to be fabulous too, you can with some make-up tips from Michelle Phan. Another fun video of Michelle Phan's is the Barbie make-up! I might just try this to freak the guys out around here. Pull out all that colorful crazy shadow that I kept "just in case for Halloween" Don't judge me.haha These videos are a little long but fun!

I think the Stylist on American Idol has been shopping on Etsy! Really! I have noticed some of the contestants donning jewelery that I've seen quite often on Etsy. Such as the octopus necklace in Simply ChaCha's shop, which I love, on Crystal Bowersox, the peacock earrings in CMorishi's shop and crochet earrings in Uniquely Chic For You shop on Lilly Scott... I am so excited for the new season to really get started! I think it's a great group this year. Here's the link to the new 24. It will also be fun to see if more popular Etsy items pop up in their wardrobes!
I just listed 3 new sushi ACEOs & this Sunny Angel in my Etsy Shop.

..."on a roll" *groan :)* ok I know that's really cheesy but I said it anyway. haha I am on a roll though, having a blast painting these little sushi paintings. I am selling the original but plan to frame prints for myself. These are 4 x 6s. I have also done some ACEOS as well. Check out these cool sushi projects at Cut Out + Keep ! I think you will like this really fun craft site. New Sushi prints listed in my Etsy shop today.

I made something seriously silly while watching the Super Bowl. My son asked me what I was making and I told him clothes for my Tabasco bottle! hahaha His eyes rolled but he wasn't surprised. hahaha If you know me you know how I love hot sauces! This is silly yes, a little cheesy yes, a little retro yes, cute....well... I think it's pretty cute. I had enough white crochet thread to make 2 of them. I never leave sauces out on the counters, I have an entire cabinet dedicated to hot sauces, but this bottle might have to stay on the counter. Actually I'm thinking I might have to make a few more and get every flavor of Tabasco and have a cute little row of Amigos or Banditos, depending on the hotness! haha My kitchen is already a little stranger than most. I have roosters, bees, black bears, copper & wine/grape things in there but somehow it does all come together. I don't see why these won't fit right in! I may leave off the serape, I think they are just as cute w/o it.
My son brought home some wild boar sausage that was given to him by a friend. I cooked it this weekend with some cabbage & onions and boy was it good! They used sweet italian spices in it. We all loved it. My son & I also made some cheese this weekend. With a house full of Foodies it's never "boar-ing" around here. haha. A Big Shout Out goes to Sandy's Cape Cod Originals who included my Christ painting in her wonderful Etsy Treasury! As it turns out you will find some awesome crochet patterns in her Etsy shop. Thank you Sandy!
