For our prompt of “Grin” today, I ended up with a little grinning cat pouncing on a grinning Halloween pumpkin. I had asked Philippe to carve a pumpkin for me, but he hasn’t done it yet. So, I used a pumpkin he
Love this, Charlie! Love to see people smiling…it’s amazing how many people walk around without a smile on their face. I have this game that I play…see how many people I can get to smile at me when I’m out and about….especially at the grocery store because that seems to be about the only place I go at the moment. Some people smile back and some people look at me like I must have just left my strait jacket somewhere. Regardless, wearing a smile makes me feel good.
I remember reading a Victorian romance when I was young where a young man was told that people of good breeding did not grin. I don’t think that’s exactly true, but I’m always a little susicious of someone who doesn’t grin.
I am known for being smiley. When I was working, people would comment if they came to the reference desk and I wasn’t smiling at them. It was funny to me when it became a deal in the Me Too movement that women were insulted when men commented on them not smiling. I was just so used to it, it didn’t seem weird to me. I think my age was showing.
We all have a story. Mine is very California-ish. It has to do with fate, destiny and light. My name is Nancy Mills and I started painting at 70. As a women’s empowerment leader and as an inspirational writer, I h
Wonderful journey, Nancy! We septuagenarian sisters are an amazing force! I’m 72 and a late-blooming artist, as well. At each phase of life, we are meant to be where we are. And happy that we were young in the 60s! Onward and upward!
For our prompt of “Pumpkin” today, I would normally sketch the pumpkin that Philippe carves each year, but he hasn’t been inspired yet to do so. So, I had to pull from imagination and ended up sketching a little
Awesome Charlie. I taped my accidental jack o lantern to my door today — it was meant to be a lesson in using chosen colours for each season even if those colours don’t match that season (Jean Haines, Atmospheric Watercolours). I would have poste dit here but there is no place to do it.
Thanks so much! 😃💕 Aww that sounds like a lovely jack-o-lantern indeed! You can always post any watercolor or drawing project in the community feed (just log in or create an account if you haven’t yet) – https://doodlewash.com/activity/
It would be kind of interesting to have a home where you had to eat up the insides in order to live there. Or maybe you’d bake them into a pudding and set them up for the kids to swim around in. I can just hear Mom, yelling at them to “get that pudding off your shoes before you come into the house!” Did you know that pumpkins were once called pumpions? Now how to work that little bit of trivia into a conversation. Oh wait! I just did!
So cute! I love all the little details you’ve put in this from the little windows and their flower boxes to the little ladder. Unfortunately these little mice won’t have this quaint little home for too long…..they will literally eat themselves out of house and home! Bahawahawa! ;P
Adorable! Great mice! This slowing down has had its upside for a lot of folks I think. It’s been a true misery for those who lost jobs and don’t have the resources to ride it out, and I feel very bad for them, but for others, it seems like they needed this reset.
Thanks so much, Mugdha! 😃💕 Aww what a sweet comment from your sister. That’s so nice! Yeah… people would have fun homes indeed, but not sure if they’d stand for very long. I tend to prefer aesthetic over any actual architecture! hehe Oh a real model would be so cool, but I barely have time to make my little sketch each day. I’ve wanted to try a bit of crafting, but it will probably be something I save for retirement.
