Early Birthday to me............

This must be my lucky weeks....

I ordered myself a book by Katherine Dunn, I love her work particularly the donkeys, for my birthday and it came in......I'm very psyched about her style of drawing and the book does not disappoint. I am having so much fun.....oooooops, I was supposed to be cleaning the house.....oh well.

I got a surprise in the mail from a wonderful artist on Etsy, Cathy DeLeRee...she sent me a donkey painting that was ordered by the dear Stacy of Magic Love Crow. And included here is a photo of the wonderful artwork given to Shelley by Stacy. Check out the leaf with M for Mommy that the kids made this last weekend with a magnifying glass....burn out art.

And finally, I saw a pin on Pinterest for a flower???? bouquet for the spring. Carrots with tops still attached, and my favorite white with yellow daisys in the middle. This morning after errands Sweet Man surprised me by suggesting we go and find the "ingredients" for the bouquet. We also splurged on some mini daffodils. The arrangement looks a little weepy now but I am sure that by tomorrow the whole of it will look wonderful.


  1. Happy Birthday to you,
