splash splosh splish


    SPLASH  I've been sick with the flu as of late.   Because of this, I've been bed far too much, sipped too many cups of tea, had countless headaches and shivers and have generally felt yuck.  I'm not sure why, but today I wanted to be on the beaches of Rio; in general, somewhere where they waves slap the warm-sandy shore and lazily slide back into a mint-blue ocean.  I think I would have fully recovered if I had been there.
 My dreams existed, but so did reality: today we walked the mile into town and picnicked at the park.  The sky was barren cerulean blue and the temperature soared - the highest of this year - 67 Fahrenheit.  Yes, that sufficed!   A picnic is a wonderful respite for a mundane Tuesday.


SPLOSH  I finished copying Vincent Vangogh's, Sunflowers and did a little something in my moleskine. 
So after arriving home from Gap, I grabbed my camera and snapped a shot of my new clothes - and quickly did a watercolour of the outfit.  I'm in love with colors that splosh together - bright, happy and fresh.  Spring is for mixing and matching and for florals and stripes paired, don't you think?

  SPLISH (mynewmadeupwordthankyouverymuch) Oh, you know ink.  It's makes a lovely 'splish, splish' sound.  And once it touches the paper the magic begins.

  10. That is so beautiful. I have just found your blog, and fell in love with it from the first moment I read your about. It is beyond delightful. And your writing is so superb!

    And your drawings/painting, is so awesome. I'm sorry if I sound over-enfusive to the point of sounding fake, but I truly mean it.
    Your blog is simply inspiring.

    Beware of lots of stalker comments upcoming from me (when I'm not being lazy). ;)

    Love,
    Rebekah

    P.S. Hahaha, I almost screamed when your music at the bottom started playing the Up theme song. My brother plays it on his Ukulele. ;)

    p.s. when you say "hug, hug" in stead of "xx" it sounds much creepier. haha, sorry that was random :)
