Hail Mary, full of grapes

December 11, 2007
I did this collage above for a winewalk we were having at our store "Folie a Deux". There was much drinking, eating and making merry. Just a whole lot of fun.
I truly cannot believe that Christmas is 2 weeks away. I have gotten only one gift so far for my son Dylan. It's getting harder and harder to get special gifts for my children. My youngest is still easy. Hannah Montana is the it thing to have for a girl 10 years old and she can never have enough clothes. To tell the truth, I think I can't get enough clothes for her because she just looks so darn cute in anything she wears. It's my fun.
On Friday, while my husband was away helping to take care of the clean up of hazardous waste down in Chehalis Washington due to the flooding, I decided to paint our bedroom. I painted it with Devine paints (it really is divine, I used it in my living room a few months ago Cocoa) in "Reflection". It's a watery frenchy blue. I painted the dresser and the mantle in our room with "Whip". I hung a chandelier up and it is on the road to being fabulous. Need a few more accessories. Hmm....Cindy Queen of Tarte sale coming up and I am sure she will have just the right piece to pull it together.

The collage is beautiful and must have been perfect for the Wine Walk (that sounds fun / interesting). You have a wine store ??? THAT must be wonderful.

So sorry to hear about all of the flooding up there...

how funny, I have a friend Catherine with a son named Dylan !

Well you blog is lovely. There was something else in your post (sorry on the other page) and I forgot what the other thing I was going to comment on was....danged old hard drive (my brain) stores less and less all the time.

Love, S

Merry Happy Jolly, Kathrine!

"...and blessed is the fruit of diamond Jesus" which is how my sister recited it when she was 5 years old!

Hello Kathrine,
I found your blog today and was so excited! It's so fascinating and unusual. I am an artist, too and so appreciate your unique and different style. I loved the music video with Imogean Heap. I make beautiful little fairy furniture and houses and do collage, photography, poetry....
I will definitely come back to your blog. It's wonderful!
