Life At The Seashore

Party hats for one and all!A sneak peek at a small walrus who's more than ready to have some fun. He's housed in a frame that's equally tiny but just as festive as he, with some pink pizazz. I've got a thing for pink at the moment.

I had a really nice weekend. Went to a ballgame with my dad and brother and had a good old time. It was freezing cold though (the only downer) so I spent the entire game with my hands stuck firmly in-between my legs and a jacket wrapped snugly around me. Lots of coffee and hot chocolate was drunk by all.
Also took myself to the beach to have lunch and walk/think/ponder life near the waves. It was *so* nice to refresh myself like that.The tide was low, the rocks covered in kelp and seaweed, and the air was crisp, cool, and salty. Yup, life is pretty good.

One more thing before I get back to work with the paints--there's an interview with little old me over yonder on The Peach Tree blog if you're interested and would like something to read. Do check out the rest of her blog as there's lots of inspiring words and images.

That's all for now, ladies and gents! I hope the rest of you had weekends full of loveliness as well!

What beautiful beach photos. You are so charmed to have that setting at your disposal. I love the walrus painting! He looks so festive and dapper. Glad to hear you had fun at the game despite the freezing cold!

Thank you, my dear! :) I must admit, I feel so unbelievably lucky to live in the Pacific Northwest. It's such a beautiful environment to surround oneself in.

great interview! I really like that etsy seller you mentioned, LesFrivolites - I have already favorited three of her items, and as soon as I feel financially comfortable doing so, i am SO buying a set - i loved the brown gaiters with the pink laces. LOVED. Keith says I have an etsy addiction. Alas.... i think tis so. I can't decide if I want to go to a game or not. Probably will when Monika comes to visit. Have to go to a baseball game. You'll come with...?

OH yeah, you can't beat living by the shore! And may I add, "coocoo-ca-choo!" He is fantabulous!

Thank you, ladies! :)

Rachel, I hate to tell you but...I think you got your Etsy addiction quite a while ago. :) And it's a pretty swell addiction to have. A ballgame is more than likely doable! The Ms are a bit...sad...this year, but going to the games is fun nonetheless.

smacthoughts, I totally and completely didn't even realize the Beatles connection! How cool...er...I mean, yup, I totally planned that. Thank you! :)

Where do you get such adorable frames from? Not that it'd be anywhere close to me (ie West Australia) Love your works, very inspiring to me.
