WOW !



Do you sometimes feel TOTALLY overwhelmed
by the GRANDEUR of nature around you ...
Does your heart LEAP at the giant foamy waves
BEATING up the ocean rocky shores ?
Does your soul ESCAPE your body at a flight of Canada geese
FLYING South on a cold day ?
Does your heart WISTLE a happy tune at the cheerful bright zinnias
POLKA-DOTTING the garden like yummy candies ?
Do your eyes FILL UP with uncontrollable tears
at the sound of a moose CALLING his mate at dusk ? 
This morning, I lifted my head to look at the MAJESTIC sky
and INSTANTLY fell on my back in the grass ... 
Could NOT move a finger NOR blink ...
Could BARELY breathe ...
Autumn PUNCHED me right in the stomach ... 
Leaving me mouth open AND paralyzed
at the IMPOSSIBLE beauty
of INDIAN SUMMER colored leaves hanging in the trees above ... 
Can it REALLY get any BETTER than this ? 
I'll get OVER it in a few minutes ...

PLEASE ...


LUPE and FRIDA are here to stay ... 
VERY lucky angel and devil Princesses ... 
Whiskered mischievious SISTERS ... 
Instant HOME invasion and terrorism ! 
Now SAFE from the harsh winter coming ... 
And from a TOUGH life of non-stop motherhood
and food scavenging ... 
Please, SPAY/NEUTER your cats NOW
and tell others about it TOO
Kittens are NOT toys to be discarded ... 
They are NOT cute when they are left roaming around homeless,
abandoned, frost-bitten, mamed, ill, undernourished, beaten, sick, hurt ... 
Just TOO MANY orphaned little NEEDY creatures out there ...

SO MANY REASONS TO BE THANKFUL ...



Today, I am THANKFUL for a single BLUE EGG,
the very first one layed by the Ameraucana hen
I hatched in spring ...
THANKFUL for holdind it, warm and perfect in my hand ...
For admiring its flawless shell and unusual color ...
For witnessing this little MIRACLE, ordinary yet SO mindboggling ...
For being able to sit in the grass peacefully 
while the roosters are crowing ...
For the sun feeling hot and orange on my back,
like the leaves in the maple trees ... 
For my beautiufl SON sleeping late on a quiet Sunday morning,
for my LOVING boyfriend hard at work in his shop,
for my ADMIRABLE parents who just called to get news about the kittens ... 
For this house that we built with our hands that we call OURS
and for the land it is seated on, BORROWED from Mother Nature ... 
For the happiness and enthusiasm I inherited from my grand-parents ... 
For the trees and the flowers,
the insects and the birds,
the colors and the noises,
the days turning INTO months INTO years ... 
I stay humble, head low,
thankful for ALL I have
when SO MANY others have NOTHING ... 
I am so very blessed,
if only to be able to acknowledge
the LUCKY star I was borned under ... 
HAPPY THANKSGIVING DAY
to all my Canadian friends ! 
Do take a minute today and stop what you are doing ...
Look around you and COUNT your blessings ...

SIMPLY COULD NOT SAY NO ...


Guess WHAT
Oh YES, you BETTER believe IT
I met both a little devil and an angel yesterday night ... 
Driving back lae under an almost full-moon,
I spotted SOMETHING moving right SMACK
in the middle of the highway ... 
Braked SO hard, I decorated the road
with an amazing set of tire burns ... 
Two tiny 4 weeks old at the most kittens
were playing on the warm asphalt ... 
SO ...
What do you do when you have a HEART
and can NOT resist wiskers ? 
I drove back home
with two warm furry purring CREATURES on my side ...
Two cats disappeared in the past few months ...
Two new ones appeared on my path ... 
I do believe in FELINE synchronicity ...
or if you prefer, MIRACLES ...

NEW HALLOWEEN ORIGINAL PAINTING !


IF you were invited to the
GREATEST Halloween Party on earth,
what would you transform yourself into
for the occasion ? 
I would be a not-so-dark mysterious redhead creature ... 
Half-good, half-wicked ... 
A skeleton mermaid swimming with
bone fishes in a dark sea ... 
Turned into a black-winged top-hat
skull-sceptre branding somber fairy
twirling in a misty grey sky ... 
And that funny bra
I could wear it easily on a daily basis ... 
 
8"x10" original canvas painting
available in my Etsy store NOW !

MY HEART GOES BOOM, BOOM, BOOM ...


These boots are made for walking in the rain
and doing some SERIOUS bad weather
ASS-KICKING ... 
Kooka TATTOO printed rubber boots ... 
Almost too COOL to be dirtied and soiled in mud ... 
LOVE mine so much I could wear them to bed ! 
They make me SMILE and others STARE ...  
I bet FRIDA Kahlo would have worn them too
on a rainy DIA DE MUERTOS !

I AM A JUNK JUNKIE ...



A FRENCH children scrabble board dating from the 70s ... 
A pair of yellowing RUSTIC hand-made wood PEASANTS ... 
An OLD Indonesian heavy carved MASK decorated with horsehair ... 
A trio of PLASTIC mischievous and NOT-SO-SCARRY windup toys ... 
A GOGO kidney-shape turquoise CONFETTI melamin soap dish
filled with a HANDFUL of tiny baby dolls ... 
Strange ARTEFACTS ... 
Discarded TREASURES ... 
Colorful NICK-NACKS and TRINKETS ...
Time gone by RELICS ... 
Grouped together in a makeshift SHRINE
to the Gods of JUNK ...
