A Few of My Favorite Things

The amazing work of veteran artist Gloria Becker.

Recently I was honored with 2 blog awards! I graciously accept them :) One Lovely Blog Award comes from Granny's Postcards (BTW, her daughter is the talented Vivianne). I'm now supposed to pass the award to 15 other blogs that I've newly discovered, however 15 is a bit much for me! So I will pass it to one special lady/ newbie blogger Gloria Becker. She is incredibly prolific, like 15 artists rolled into one! Gloria may be relatively new to the Internet scene, but she's been making exquisite collectibles since I was in diapers. Her oeuvre includes incredible Santas, life size taxidermy dressed animals, and outlandishly dressed sock monkeys! Needless to say, we had more than a few things in common :) Pamela Huntington just posted photos of her amazing visit to Gloria's house here.

Visit Gloria blog "Miss Irene Tripper" named after her pooch.
Gloria's new Etsy shop and her web site (designed by little ol' me).

Kreativ Blogger award came from LaTouchables Bags and Things. Dawn of LaTouchables makes unique handbags in Rhine Valley, Germany.

I really love this one, and this one, to name a few! Accepting this award I'm supposed to declare seven things I love (on top of my family, friends and supporters). So here it goes:

1. the animal kingdom
2. nature
3. star gazing/ astronomy
4. wabi sabi
5. working with my hands (obvious, but true)
6. exercise
7. my juicer machine

Fairly simple things I guess! But it's the simple things that make me happy :)
Hope you enjoyed my Friday favorites, I'd love to hear yours! xoxo

Peng Peng, How fun is that, Gloria's explosion of monkey contained in a cupboard?
My loves:
1. FREEDOM
2. Girls that speak their minds
3. French
4. Spanish
5. Chocolate
6. Antique dolls
7. Flowers, especially in mon jardin, en mi jardin

Drinking some really horrid tasting coffee, maybe my coffee taste buds have died?? But starting to feel awake, maybe enough to tackle Vygotsky?
