I Liked these Enormous flamingo sculptures at a garden shop in Ft. Collins this past weekend.
Around the house, I like the container store pull out shelves DH installed in the bottom of each kitchen cabinet
I liked meeting Emma in the hood...
And Milo loves this little girl who is his age and we must set up a play date
we stopped in Loveland at Stitches and stuff Quilt (find them here!) store
We headed to Ft. Collins next and found a charming mix of art and high end flea market booths, gourmet food, soaps, and people.I've been having trouble with my back, and this was a level place to walk around. We try to do something new each weekend.
She uses acrylic paint, and thick medium to crumple fabric onto canvas, creating rich texture.
I asked if she stayed to muslin, and she said nope! Prints, burlap, cheesecloth, etc.
Also rocks, beads, metal, and other mixed media are incorporated. Her studio is kind of a mess she said.
|Rocks, paint, and more|
I liked this book on America's immigrants (that means every one of us if you go back in time)
My birth mother was from Germany and my birth father was from Italy. My adoptive parents were from Georgia and Alabama so I didn't know my roots growing up.
I liked this mosaic floor and tin goats at a store front
|beautiful curved quilt stand|
|salt and pepper shakers, and the flask "I used to drink, but that was 4 hours ago"|
|from all the flamingo booty, they must be "IN" right now!|
|words to live by. Or, maybe be a flamingo amidst other flamingoes since they are fun and pink!|
|it's why people are coming here according to many|
|clever business name!|

We went in and lookie who greeted me! Whee! Parker! A rescue shepherd who shepherded me upstairs for a romp. Boy he was a fun dude and we would have run all over that shop if the peeps hadn't gotten in the way (again)
After that we almost went to Wyoming! but stopped at this visitors center for info on future trips
I liked our sky view later that evening too
Mama told me a story about the olden days when she was a young pup. When she and her friends saw a VW bug they gave each other a little play punch on the arm, "punch buggy!"
I play a game like that and Mama hates it, heh heh.
I call it "punch bunny"
Every time I see a bunny, or, er, sometimes a rock I think is a bunny, I stop! I stalk it! I YANK the leash to chase it! Punch bunny mama!
she is not amused.
I can't help it, they are so darn cute and fun to chase so I do chase them in the back yard.
How do those things squeeze out of the little squares on our fence?
Anyway, I always like pretty much everything so there! Prince of Poodles! I like that title!
Stay and visit mama's friends keeping their own lists of likes this week. Make Mama happy and join us okay?
