Wings & Legs & Other Things


I've been crazy busy making pages.
So here's an assortment of mish-mashy things,
including the mystery captain guy, random carousel pic,
and a blurry butterfly.
And the unfortunate demise of an unsuspecting secada.





Spidey Beats Mothra!

Lost & Found: Summer Edition



I shot it, The Hubby called it.
And yes, as he pointed out, top pic IS an Alpha J.
But I can't say no one was harmed in it's making.

Even when the day is done...

Alphabet Series: No.9, Lowercase "a" or No.2

Some background on my Alpha Series Project...
It all started when I found a beautiful lowercase script e.
Then, to be fair, I gave this A some Attention.
It took on a life of it's own from there on in.
Since so many people responded to it, 
I began shooting & posting more "found letters."
Contrary to what Jane and Brad think,
NO ANIMALS OR OBJECTS HAVE BEEN POKED OR PRODDED
to please my artistic sensibilities.
These are letters that jump out at me while I'm out in the world.
Having been a graphic designer now, for (ahem) 23 years,
my eyes are trained to see the shapes, serifs and positive space
that letters make. It's ingrained in me.

That said, there ARE times where I might 
flip or flop a photo to suit my needs. For example:
[Jean, avert your eyes]


Would this be a better No. 6, or No. 9?

...or a No.2.
...or a lowercase a?
I'll let YOU decide.

Backyard Livingroom

THIS is the beautiful backyard livingroom 
of my dear friend, Pickle.
Doesn't it look comfy?
Relaxing out there, during an afternoon playdate 
was almost like being at a spa!
[except with 7 varmints running around]

Why the Sad Face?

Have I mentioned that I love abandoned Gas Stations?
Especially ones with sad faces.

Things My *Friends* Send Me

These 2 beauties came to me via email, within 2 days of eachother:

This one came from Gretch, my ol' Chum.

Not sure what this tomato is aspiring to be, 
but it sure did catch my attention!
Any guesses?

Next we have this spud, from Laura,
who is not only a friend, but also a client.
I think this puts a whole new slant on our relationship ;-)


THIS lovelinesS came from Jean,
who thought it was SO FUNNY to show me up with 
her beautiful found "S."
It's NOT funny Jean.

Does anyone else have something they'd like to send me?
Send it now. Seriously.
Elena... Got wig pics? 
Pickle? Got surveillance pics of me driving 
the varmints around in the minivan?
Bring it on!

I wish everyone could have been there...
We were 6 all together:

It was a feast of delicious treats, and engaging conversation...

great food...

And more food...

delicious desserts...
[not shown here, but showing up on my hips & thighs: 
berry sorbet, frozen crack, and dark choc covered nuts.]


Maia kitty.

Let's start planning the next one now, ok ladies?

Mina Update: 8/08/09

Mina has been laundering Ice Cream Money 
through my varmints...

And when I say *Laundering* I really mean it.
She washes 2 or 3 dollars worth of change,
puts it in a purse, and tells the varmints to go buy ice cream.

This morning, the purse came wrapped in Saran Wrap,
with a note.


Here they are giving her a thank you card.

We love you Mina!
