Giraffes and Eggs

We celebrated my son’s birthday on Saturday night. He came over for a barbecue and birthday cake. We gave him a boy mannequin wearing a giraffe costume for his birthday. (He collects giraffes.) Here’s a picture of James and his birthday present leaving at the end of the evening. I told him he had to support the mannequin between the legs when carrying it, otherwise it might separate at the waist. He did it, but he said it felt wrong.

I’ve been meaning to post a picture of this great piece of art I picked up at a garage sale in Sandy Hill a few weeks ago. Odyssey Theatre was having a garage sale, but I got this at the garage sale across the street from their garage sale. It’s called Egg Log 1, and it’s print #2 of 30. The artist is Mary Davies. Sometimes I buy art and within a few days (sometimes hours) I’m suffering from buyer’s remorse. But not this time. The more I look at this one, the more I like it, and I liked it a lot to begin with.

What else is new? I made a curtain! I bought some fabric at Value Village last week for $2.99 with the intention of making a new bathroom curtain. I don’t think I ever expected me to actually do it though. So you can imagine my surprise when I threw that piece of fabric into the sewing machine yesterday and turned it into a curtain!

Okay that’s it for now. Hi ho, hi ho. It’s off to work I go!
