Free Image Tuesday....8 Random Things....

This is another full plate tintype that is a copy of another photograph. Look at those sweeties!!! I love everything about this picture. Their plaid dresses, their solemn expressions and the way that someone painted the lace on the little one's pantaloons. Just lovely. I hope you will use it in your art and share with us.

Sweet Fran Welch at Ethereal Art tagged me to share 8 random facts/habits about me on the blog. As much as I love to ramble, and you know I do, it was a hard assignment. So here are my random things:
  • I always eat one thing at a time on my plate. I don't mix my food. I start with my least favorite thing and always save my favorite thing for last.
  • I can imitate the cry of a newborn baby with scary precision. Just ask Cheryl. I gave her New Mommy flashbacks!
  • I question what I am doing with this whole art thing about a million times a day.
  • I am a caretaker, nurturer type person and I am learning to put my needs first a little bit each day.
  • I can't whistle.
  • I am a voracious reader and I read my favorite books over and over and over:) They are comfortable, like old friends.
  • I was a second grade teacher for 10 years before I had children. I love to teach and the beginning of the school year is hard for me because that's when I miss it the most.
  • I had my tonsils removed when I was fifteen and again when I was 34 after they GREW BACK!

I apologize for being absent lately on your blogs. Please know that even if I am not commenting I have been thinking of all of you daily. I have been getting ready to open an ETSY store and share some of my wonderful vintage things with you. I can't wait!

Don't feel as if you need to appologize for not being able to post. We all are busy at time. I'm just glad that you post when you can. :) *HUGS*

Oh I can't wait for the shop! How great. I think everyone who does any arting questions it. I love that someone else eats one thing at a time, and I can't whistle either.

Me too, me too!
I'd love to hear you do the baby cry!
Don't worry about visiting...we know you'll be around at some point. I should be doing what you're doing, readying my Etsy shop. That's next after I redo my studio!
Sending hugs,
