Everyone is so obsessed with reading the soup labels, looking for that evil MSG, sodium, and trans-fat, perhaps they should start making their soups from scratch and forget preserved canned food altogether.

before adding them to my pot pie. Just spit them out! Sheesh. ;)
I came up with the idea for this blog last Thursday. I was struck by how fortunate I am (in so many ways), and instead of focusing on areas where …

I finally finished the Foxglove Fairy Cat portrait, that I've been tinkering with at the Farmer's Market. :)
I have the purrfect frame for her, too. I think I'll list this one in my Etsy shop.
Her sister, Miss Coneflower, is available through Art At The Hall's "El Gato" art show in Aberdeen, Scotland.
