Gentlemen of the future

While browsing on the Internet I saw pictures of some very dapper young men. They are all so cute and without doubt gentlemen in making. What do you think? Do any of you see your childhood in them?

Cufflinks please!

We have no more room for furniture in our home and no room for more fine china. So what do you do when you go antiquing?  Buy something small.  I have always loved cufflinks so my antiquing is now turned into “cufflinking” (if there is such a word).  Finding cufflinks at antique stores and at a bargain is the new thrill. The only problem; can’t get that same thrill buying French cuff shirts at Brooks Brothers.

Some of the recent finds (please excuse my photography):

Last weekend we had a Christmas party, my friends Jim and Sue brought this beautiful Poinsettia for us. It is gorgeous. Lately I see a lot of poinsettias in weird colors. Pale yellow, pale blue, purple and white. I think red Poinsettias are part of Christmas tradition and they look very good in any set up.  I thought, Santa always wears red suit, how would you feel if Santa starts wearing green, pale yellow and purple suits?

Bloggers Block!

As an artist you get an artist's block, as a writer, you get a writer's block I am suffering from a blogger's block. As Paisley curtain nears it's first anniversary it is ironic to have a block. My artist's block is over and I am constantly painting these days, but now facing the blogger's block. It all started with some health issues specially with my eyes, since I could not use computer during that time, I was not able to post for a few weeks. Now it seems the eyes are very functional but blogger portion of my brain is not. 

Any suggestions?
