shadows and soul searching

good morning everyone!


thank you all for being so patient with me while my wrist has been healing.
i have been working a lot on my dolls, but what computer work i've doing has been looking more than writing...

fall has come to new orleans and i can't remember any days this beautiful in a long, long time. last year we literally went from summer to winter and it stayed winter until april. which is not like us. and we did not like it. but, last weekend, fall arrived, the sky is the bluest of blues, there is a crisp breeze, but it's still warm enough to run around in short sleeves. perfect. absolutely perfect.


i took a walk in my neighborhood on sunday and took these pictures of some of my favorite houses



of course, i am stuck in side more than i would like, working, working, working. but when i take walks, i do enjoy them more than i have in a long time...


last weekend i did the freret street market here in town:



 it was a gorgeous day but the market was disappointing. i am more than thankful for my friends who showed up and bought some pieces from me, because i only sold one item to someone i didn't know! ha! the dolls got A LOT of interest, a lot of handling, A LOT of oohing and ahhing and " these are the cutest things i've ever seen" . but...
oh well...

soooo... that was a bit of a let down, but,you gotta start somewhere and that might as well have been it. i have applied to do another show there in november, because i feel that i need to make my presence known. but, my fire has died down a bit, and i am having to have long talks with myself to keep up the enthusiasm and positivity that i need in my life.


but, that's all i'm going to say about that...

so, i have some work to do and i guess i better get to it.



on the bright side... it's almost halloween!!!



until then...
