Getting back on track....


Shoowee! Haven't visited blogland in way too long! July was a bit busy for us with a family reunion in New York and a week at the beach in North Carolina. And I have had some cat "stuff" going on too. It seems like I haven't been able to get myself back to the art table for any significant amount of time for quite awhile. But I did just finish a fun mixed media children's painting, a very gleeful purple kitty! I am taking a teeny break from sculpting to work on more paintings. I also thought I'd share a few new home decorating projects. Check 'em out below!

I had been wanting to spruce up our staircase, so I finally decided to wallpaper the fronts of the steps. I really love how it turned out.



My friend, Jennifer Higgins, makes wonderful wooden swings. I have wanted one for awhile, but we don't have any large trees in our yard. Well, why not have one in the house? I wanted a polka dotted one with a circus-y feel and an inspirational word lettered on it. "Curiouser" from Alice in Wonderland seemed like the perfect word for our house :). I LOVE it!! If you'd like to see more of Jennifer's work, check out her Etsy shop: Metamorphosis



...and I've been dying to hang a branch from the ceiling, so we did that too! I still need to add butterflies, birds and a nest. I may decorate it seasonally. It' getting curiouser and curiouser....and thank goodness my husband is tolerant and supportive of my decorating craziness!!

I'm so glad you came back to blogging. I missed reading about your art and cats. I love the decoration to your home. Somehow, I think all of the pieces you show here seem perfectly in tune with who you are, both personally and professionally. I love the purple cat painting. He is so happy! I'd love to see the tree branch when you finish decorating it. Welcome back to all your blog fans.

Thank you so much for checking in, Shirley! I feel terrible that I have neglected my blog and the people who are kind enough to visit!! I think I have just been spending too much time on Facebook and always post there but not here. Purrs and kindest wishes to you~~
