everything but the kitchen sink

While the hubby bangs around in the kitchen playing plumber, I search for inspiration...

Perhaps you will look lovely with this pretty pink vintage frock.

I've been on a creative hiatus lately for completely unacceptable reasons; I'm too tired after getting home from work, the weekends are too short, I don't have the time, etc. But we all know, when something is important, you find the time for it. Which is why I'm making an honest attempt to get back on track.
My first drawing since last summer...

For Amineh

head in the clouds

A Dream Deferred
by Langston Hughes

What happens to a dream deferred?

Does it dry up
like a raisin in the sun?
Or fester like a sore--
And then run?
Does it stink like rotten meat?
Or crust and sugar over--
like a syrupy sweet?

Maybe it just sags
like a heavy load.

Or does it explode?

le chat

Loving Toby Otter's cat collection on flickr.
This cat must have meant a lot to someone - back in the day film photo taking was still a luxury and most photos were taken of people - but this cat photo was a nice find. - Toby Otter

two thumbs up

500 Days of Summer

"This is a story of boy meets girl. The boy, Tom Hansen, grew up believing that he'd never truly be happy until the day he met the one. The girl, Summer Finn, did not share this belief. You should know up front this is not a love story."

Loved it!
