Happy Birthday Ricky
Saturday was my friend Ricky's birthday so we had a party for him.
Check out this cake, isn't it pretty?

Ricky writes poetry so he read a few of his favorites to us.

Um, I won't tell you how many candles were on the

With all this snow around, it's a good time to stay inside, sip cocoa, download music and work on my hobbies. I like to decoupage. As a kid I loved taking elmers glue and spreading it all over my hand, blow it dry then see if I could peel it off in one piece and see my fingerprints. I wasted a lot of glue doing that. Now I just glue stuff together or use it as a glaze to protect and age things. Here are some pics of a few things I decoupaged.
This is a cheap 99 cent light fixture in my second bedroom. I found the picture in a National Geographic. Cut it to fit and viola, it matches the flower arrangement.

Here's another light fixture. I used mulberry paper and real leaves that I painted first then decoupaged. Oh, the pic of the bear is a greeting card and the frame is made of twigs from my front yard.

This was a plain cardboard box. I painted it then used real leaves lightly dipped in paint and used as a stamp then found this faery pick in a used book I bought at a garage sale.

This is a livingroom window that I love and didn't want to cover up but had too many looky loos staring in at me so I found handmade paper, tinted it with watered down paint and decoupaged it right to the glass panes. The flowers at the top have since been replaced with a wine velvet top panel with jeweled fringe.

Here's one more light fixture in my kitchen. I used an 88 cent sheet of gift tissue to make this one. Feel free to respond and tell me what you think or better yet, tell me about one of your hobbies.

A Cap Nap Before The Next Snow

More snow is on the way tomorrow, 4 to 8 inches in fact but in
the meantime, here are a few pics of the cozy cabin's cat, Senna.
Lazy thing ain't he?

Now isn't that just like a man, hogging the remote? He loves
American Idol and calls his votes in for Chris. Senna is a rocker kitty!

Ok, so he sleeps alot. Think I'll come back as a cat!

Blizzard of 06

Wow, what a snow storm. I have drifts in my yard exceeding 6ft. My second car won't see the road till This is JohnnyB. He's the best!!

This was the next day after I dug myself out again from plowboy's overnight visit. Who needs 24 fitness? All you need is a shovel.

And this is much better...the sun...yes!!! I missed the sun.

Isn't it pretty in the sun? It's turning out to be a beautiful day but it's just going to ice over and be hell in the morning! This weekend I have to try and dig out the Daewoo before it's battery goes dead. It's to the left of the Grand Vitara and hardly visible. No easy task.

The skiing should be awesome now. Wish I

Looks like my security camera there in the bottom right corner bit the dust.
