One year, my husband loomed around on Halloween night with his head inside of a real pumpkin. Innocent children wept. I’m not much for horror movies, the macabre, or even Harry Potter, Grimms Fairy Tales petrified me when I was growing up. I mean, the whole child abandonment theme of Hansel and […]

Holiday weekends are chock full of family dynamics. While there is usually plenty of laughter, there are always undercurrents of unresolved issues right below the surface. Since by Monday everyone will be back to their daily routine, it is usually best to let those things fade into the wallpaper. Artist and skin illustrator Emma Hack […]

Nashville native, Everitte Barbee got an “A” in penmanship, but it wasn’t the Palmer Method.

I’m completely besotted with the work of artist Mary Wagner. Yes, these do remind one of spirographs…but Mary isn’t playing any games. She spent two years making her specialized tools to create these mathematical wonders. You can buy her work here.

I watched a fantastic Ken Burns documentary a few weeks back on the “Dust Bowl”. Highly recommend. These inky/sooty watercolor paintings by David Rathman put me in mind of it. True Grit.

I got a bee in my bonnet at 10 p.m. last night to make a jello mold. I’m not sure what triggered it. Google helped a lot, as I was able to find a recipe that could incorporate some of my pantry orphans (coconut milk, sweetened condensed milk, and nutmeg…oh yeah, rum). This was one […]
