I’m not saying the Portland Police haven’t done their share of violent things, but what is happening now in Portland is frightening. The President has send the federal forces in to take over our city, so he can teach people … Continue reading
I’ve always loved dandelions… I confess to stealing this idea of a dandelion in Gold Dust Piloncitos 1521 from my Aussie friend Shilo McClean. I hadn’t thought of how lovely it might look with the gold as the wish-do-dahs, on … Continue reading
So I gave you a little taste of Mitchell’s glittery collection here, with the help of Yamantaka! Part 2, we looked at the warm shimmers in our collection… Now for the cool inks! Diamine Shimmer-tastic Lilac Satin ink has won … Continue reading
So I gave you a little taste of Mitchell glittery collection here, with the help of Yamantaka! Now I’ll show you our favorites! I bought a few bottles of inkmasters we know, so we trusted the ink quality, and some … Continue reading
Mitchell fell in love with glitterinks, starting with Robert Oster’s Sterling Silver… I made him a long visual record of what he has because it was getting confusing… “i think you did this all wrong” Yaman checked it all out … Continue reading
We bought two bottles and a couple of shimmery ink samples! I don’t buy samples often — tiny plastic thangs — but will when I have never tried an ink company. Gorgeous! Robert Oster has to very different golds (gads … Continue reading
Home home home… The idea of home is so far away from today’s reality… Family figures who were wayshowers became betrayers, My hometown has become a rich man’s enclave, far away from the hippy beach community that was heaven… and … Continue reading
Flageolet is another sweet-smelling bean right out of the bag — smells of the earth and it smells GREEN… Flageolet pushed me back a decade to when I had the time to make my own chicken stock from leftover bones, … Continue reading
Blackberries along the back fence attract birds and so, this year, we finally began feeding the birds on the roof of our building’s loading dock. A wide variety of seed and peanuts and corn means a wide variety of bird … Continue reading
This a redo and making-it-better of my Rancho Gordo Ayocote Morado Beans. I nearly cried when we finished this batch, especially as they are already out of stock! I pre-soaked these beans for an hour… seeing the beautiful beans in … Continue reading
Bored with talk of beans yet? Oh well. because I have lots more beany things to explore! These beans smelled like fresh grass when I opened the bag. Now I am smelling ALL my bags — but so far none … Continue reading
Between the pandemic, working long hours, and the protests I have had no time for posting. I continued to make marks late at night. Our anniversary in May was quiet and we slept, ate, and binge watched the Good Karma … Continue reading
My creativity comes and goes… My sleeplessness comes and goes. Stess over pandemic and government’s handling of it, economics, and as usual now, politics. My New Moon was a mistake. Reached for the wrong black ink and then had to … Continue reading
She is the little Squeak, the Squirt — the kitten who didn’t make it to foster care for a couple more days after her siblings were found, and so also, missed feedings and started life the runt. She’s not getting … Continue reading
This a redo and making-it-better of my Rancho Gordo Cassoulet Beans. I nearly cried when we finished this batch! Doubled my 4 pieces bacon to 1/2 package, so almost double. A bit more Chipotle — but then we love things smokey … Continue reading
Kamala was a smart tuxedo gurl kitty who lived on our deck for many years. We think she was abandoned by the previous tenants, and she was fascinated by our houseful of cats, but careful. She talked to our … Continue reading
