LOOK at the boots
Dr. Martens and Sanrio
came up with to celebrate
HELLO KITTY'S 50TH ANNIVERSARY !
I wanna a pair and
I want them NOW !
I can just see myself wearing these
with my old worn jeans overalls
to go clean the chicken coop ...
SO COOL and AMUSING !
Here's another pair of
HELLO KITTY'S 50TH ANNIVERSARY
Dr. Marten boots I
I'd have something more SOBER and CLASSIC to wear
with my little plain black dress
in case I have to go to a funeral or a wedding or to court ;-)
ONE LAST PAIR of shoes,
Then, just THEN,
I will stop !
But these are a must for HALLOWEEN !
How can a girl be without a pair of
these awesomely rad Mini Zaza,
Unique soles for unique souls ...
They would look so slick
when riding my witch's broom to the village ... ;-) I just can not resist,
this shoe obsession is delirious,
so many INCREDIBLE ones
and just one life
to wear them all !
OLD TIME COUNTRY SWAPPING ... Left at sunset yesterday with 3 jars of pickled zucchinis and a book to please a friend ... Made it back home under the light of the GREEN CORN FULL MOON with 5 young chatting hens in a box ... My rooster now really believes DREAMS DO COME TRUE ... He woke up in the wee hours and found out he has now ten chicks in his harem instead of five ...
If you can not live in the desert, make the desert come and live with YOU ! Life-size seguaro cactus in a pot ! But not just your regular cactus ! No, this one is a yew topiary, evergreen and patiently shaped with scissors. Spotted it at a local greenhouse while driving around with my Mexican friend Luisa. We just stood there, looked at each other and laughed, it is such an unusual sight in Southern Quebec. Wish I could borrow it for a day, park it in a field nearby, wait for the sunset and take a picture ... CRAZY WORLD !
to tackle this kind of
one day !
Turn my local scrap-yard into
a life-size zoo !
Work on a
BIG and FUNKY
right in the middle of a bare field
that would then be open to the public !
Completely made from
upcycled discarded stuff !
This is just my kinda art,
makes me drool withenvy ;-)
Our house is getting eaten
by Mother Nature !
The crazy wild-grape wine is
trying to keep the door shut,
the bad-girl flowers are
ganging up and making it
hardly impossible to
walk on the deck
a line of toads guard the entrance
like little warted soldiers ...
does not belong to us
it's being recclaimed by summer
who wants to take it away with him
before leaving its place
to autumn soon approaching ...
I was just getting readyto leave the bay and drive back home
when we had a
BIG thunder storm ...
I sat on the balcony and watched
the ocean's surface get battered by the rain.
as suddenly as it had started,
the sun returned bright as can be,
and right there,
so, so close,
this small finback whale
came to say goodbye ...
I heard both calling me in my dreams a few nights ago ... A summer without them is like a blue, blue sky without that tiny special little puffy cloud. Five hours later I was standing face to face with two of myfavorite things in the entire world ... The sea and the whales ... No one around on the shores of the St-Laurent, only me and the breeze ...
Caught myself a handful of
I will keep them in a jar
in the darkness
for these nothing-is-happening days
in the middle of winter.
When I need to cheer myself up,
I will close the door and the lights in my studio,
open the lid and marvel
at the show they'll put on.
I will also wear
a protection helmet ;-)
Oh! I love Friday the 13th ! Living dangerously on the edge of the weekend ! Gonna piss off my black cats, walk back and forth under ladders and slash all the mirrors at Walmart with my giant wood mallet ! But first, I am going on my rollerskates down the mountain with no brakes ! Daring is living !
and she turns
68 years old !
Looking at her
makes me look forward to
my older days to come ...
creative and beautiful ...
WAY TO GO BETSEY !I love you !
I am a fetishist.
I have an obsession.
I love hands.
Statue hands. Sculpture hands. Hands in paintings and in famous pictures. Hands as objects.
I am a hand maniac.
Through the years
I have taken thousands of hand photos.
I strongly believe hands
are the reflection of people's soul,
revealing in their individuality,
one's true hidden personality ...
I had a secretrendez-vous ...
Not a word,
you must promise not to tell anyone ...
My heart jumped and leaped with joy
at the thought of sleeping by his side
I just sat on the edge of the water
and waited for him to appear...
He came to meet me,
silent and gracious ...
Champ, the monster of Lake Champlain ...
My monster ...
When I woke up this morning,
he was already gone ...
Fourteen years ago,
my son was born in a house out of the ordinary ...
Both parents work-at-home artists and jack-of-all-trades.
Grand-parents living nearby.
His home has been a work in progress through the years,
organic as the nature that surrounds it.
Animals of all kinds always being part of the family.
Everything is permitted in this house on a try-out basis ...
in the middle of all this creative abundance and turmoil,
he was able to find something of his own,
not given, passed on or proposed by his entourage.
My son was born with music in his heart and soul ...
He's been playing guitar for a bit more than a year now
and the magic of notes put together
has gotten under his skin real good ;-)
