I headed out to the studio in my PJ’s this am, as I planned to write on the blog and of course wanted to include my photos; I had left my camera out in the studio last night.
Lately I’ve been caught wandering my property in my PJ’s, it is one of those pleasures of living in the country and not having close by neighbors. On the morning of the open house, Jackie arrived very early in the most annoyingly chipper mood, and I was outside working in the yard in my PJ’s. I like my mornings slow and quiet, just me a cup of coffee and the cats. Anyway, I confessed to my mother-in-law in recent months about actually wearing PJ’s out in public, much to her horror. I guess, I can understand her response to my revelation, but it wasn’t like I was sporting pink fuzzy slippers and had my hair up in curlers, looking like I just got out of bed. It was much more thoughtful than that – I had all my underwear on, I had earrings on and I was carrying a pocket-book for goodness sake. I was wearing cropped pants that happened to have pink flamingos on them, that just happened to be pajama bottoms, they look light and breezy and I’ve only worn them in Florida, where anything goes, okay and maybe in the Caribbean, and then there was that time…okay come to think of it, maybe I have worn them on more than one occasion.
Where was I going with all this? Oh yeah, I went out for my camera and then got involved piddlin’ with this and that, and before I knew it an hour had gone by. I could hear my neighbors across on the farm mending their fence in full farm attire, and I’m back in fantasy land in my pajamas. I realized I better get in the house and get to work on the blog.
I mentioned the other week that we had blue birds, visiting one of our houses in the herb garden, they came for two days, and then they moved on to another location, I was pretty disappointed about that.
This week birds started building a nest on our front porch, right above the steps, not a good location, but at least I have a good view of their activities.
This week in the project department I created these cute little “fish on a stick” pretty simple and straightforward. They may be inserted directly into your flower-pot, or garden.
I’ve been wanting to create a project that incorporates my photography. Years ago, my sister Holly gave me a beautiful card, which I have framed and it is in my bathroom, it was the inspiration for my latest project. It has beautiful shimmering mica powder accenting the design.
I’ve done more cleaning out in the studio, moved some furniture around and found this sign I used to have hanging in my antiques, flea market store, I just may hang it up again, not sure yet. Below are some photos from this past weeks activities in the studio.
I cleaned up my work area, then made a big mess, cleaned it up again, rearranged a bunch of stuff and now I don’t know where anything is…
Another hour has passed, I’m still in my pajamas, don’t come for a visit without calling first, I may be wearing my flamingo pants.
