I actually saw her perform in Lake Tahoe CA, many years ago. She was in her 60 s and she was as graceful as you can imagine with her feathered fans!

Soartful Saturday challenge!

3 Muses! What's in your pocket?

When I read about this challenge, "show us what's in your pocket" I went into my studio to make something. I passed by a shelf with all these drawers and this guy is there standing up in a drawer. "pocket bear", of course!
A stretch perhaps on the theme, but here's the story. I found PB at a garage sale in the late 60's just when I was starting to collect bears. You mean someone was letting this little guy go????? I rescued him and put him in my jean pocket. From then on he was with me a lot when the boys were little. He would talk to them when we went on errands or were riding in the car. He had a way of making the time go by when the boys got tired of running errands or waiting in line at the "drug store"! I think I probably carried him for about 5-6 years every day! The boys still remember pocket bear!

That's my story and I'm stickin to it!

Beginning a new project!

This thought just blew into my brain when I was looking at the Macy's fall catalog!
How about if the" old woman" lived in a boot instead of a shoe?
There was an old woman
Who lived in a boot.
She had so many children
She didn't give a hoot!
