Bill was at the kitchen window this morning and spied this cool bird in the yard. He was doing a little dance while he walked around. He was poking his very long beak into the ground and pulling out earthworms. I looked him up online and found out he's a woodcock. They live in immature forests. He must have been passing through.

I love Folk Art

I just picked up 2 new pieces of fab folk art. I picked the cool grotto in Iowa city junk shop "artifacts" It's loaded with cheap and cheesy jewelry from the 50's and 60's. I've got to find a spot for it somewhere. That's the problem here, finding more room. The other piece is a grandfather clock (missing the clock). It looks like grandpa made it. All million pieces are hand cut and hand stained with "Love". Probably from the 40's. It looks like a project from a old boys "Things for boys to make" book from that time period. I picked this up at "Decorum" antique shop. "Mark" gave me a great deal on this piece.

Still working on this thing

It sure seems like i haven't been working on anything. It's because "I haven't been". I'm getting my MoJo back. Thanks to a few things. The weather is nicer. I'm getting outside. I'm getting some much needed exercise, I'm going back to the gym starting last week. Mom is getting settled in. My hot flashes has gone by the wayside, so I'm getting sleep. YIPPEEE!!!
Over the weekend i cleaned my little studio room. I did some organizing. I made it possible to work in there. sorted glass and shells, I'll be getting this head done soon. I want to get starting something else. Now that's more like it.

John waters and divine

Last night bill and i went to the Englert theater in Iowa city to see John waters. We had great seats up front and We were laughing from the time he came out to the time he left the stage. He was funny. What an interesting guy. He talked about everything, from his movies and his life experiences.What a story teller he is.My sense of humor is kind of different, but,i found his humor very very funny. He's not for everybody. We had a fabulous time out and we topped it off with the best pizza EVER, Pagliais Pizza.
