Do you love dishes like I do?

Small Refrigerator Jar With Lid in the Butterprint pattern by Pyrex If you love to look at dishes- check out this site- Replacements Ltd I literally spent/wasted hours looking up dishes- I think this little Pyrex covered dish is adorable ( I don't like to store food in plastic, so wouldn't this be wonderful- and the rooster is so cute!) Our plate collection is rather eclectic- one each of many different types of dish, but I may just get another one of these:
Dinner Plate in the Chippendale pattern by Royal (usa)
it's called "Royal Chippendale" and our one little plate has really grown on me over the years. Anyway- if you have a couple of free hours (haha) check out some wonderful dishes.

well hi there!

So it's been awhile- what can I say--- Snowed IN- Flooded OUT- Holidays- 40th Birthday- woo hoo! I had to write to share this wonderful article to whoever is lovely enough to still keep up with my blog. "How to Procrastinate Like Leonardo Da Vinci" I can't seem to link to it, so go to this link- Arts & Letters then go down to where it says "Leonardo da Vinci, maybe a little like you, was a hopeless procrastinator...." then read the rest of the article- you'll like it- I promise.... For your viewing pleasure---Here is a new pattern that I made- some little suns- I was trying to make a little bag that would fit credit cards, but it's just the tiniest bit too small, so it just holds change... I'll try again later. Block printing with fabric ink on hemp/cotton canvas Also- I am going to a workshop this weekend on Licensing for artists and such- it's in SF- if you also want to attend the information can be found here I think it should be just what I'm looking for- info on doing Surtex (she has done the Surtex show in NY many times)- and also the who and what of licensing images. I'll report back on how it goes. In the meantime- read the article it's REALLY great!
