So for this Halloween I was a fan dancer....circa the 30's....but not quite Sally Rand.

Port of Amsterdam

Compelled by many a years of listening to the Jack L version of this song, I stumbed upon the original by Jacques Brel. This is a bit of a shout out to Garbie, where ever ye are....

its friday, dontcha know

So here we are at the end of the week....& oh what a week its been.  I had my first doula client call me on the phone, had my one every four months sale on etsy & sold some bacon & eggs at Bohema.  Not bad.  Hopefully I can keep the momentum going.
Projects that I've attend too this week...
finishing a quilt for a very dear mer-baby...
a dotted with polkas happy birthday banner...
and some very neglected embroidered napkins....
Those poor napkins need some attention.  Perhaps today.

The above photo is from the zoo last week.  They have the most amazing bronze sculptures there.  I noticed quite a few dating back into the 1800's.  Truly lovely.

Squareback Volkys

The boys in the Baha Beetle

My favorite Volkswagen from the Flanders All Aircooled Gathering, last month in Jersey. There were many buses and quite a few of my favorite Fastbacks, but oh my, this beauty stole my heart.

3 lamps & the musical frontier

Visited the Smith House last week. These photos are from their doll house. I love to see how the kids set up the rooms. I also cannot resist playing a bit there myself.

New loves this week....because I needed to find a new music love this week. WTF universe???? Its been a strange week.
So without further ado, meet This Frontier Needs Heroes. Enjoying their song Leopard Eyes.

My other sorta new to me favorite, Brown Bird. I've listen to their song David and Bathsheba many, many times this past week. I am enjoying his voice entirely. There is also a cello player in the band. I couldn't ask for more. Looking forward to their new album out this month.

This video has me a bit enthralled. Their harmonizing is divine and there is a bit of a change up / surprise about 3 quarters of the way in...sirens, indeed.

Also this week, my friend Josh started a blog....
