Mr. Tom Thumb and his mischief!

note his sneaky little ways

Tom Thumb!~he is a handful, he can't stand to see anyone try to take a cat nap when there is playing to be done!
He will poke and prod and touch as much as he can reach just to see if he can wake Bear up.
It is quite hilarious, so I just sit back and watch.

THE DOOR~this is the door into the studio...
I love my door knockers and real snake skin that we found out by the driveway.
We have a resident black snake (very aggressive, will bite, but not poisonous)who comes around often.
You can just barely see my Taylor 12 string acoustic sitting behind the door!

THE CHAIR~the place where I actually spend 90% of my life!
My mother's chair~left to me after her passing, she would be happy to know it is so inspirational.

One of my studio walls~with Christy Meyers Ashton Drake ornies displayed, and you can just see Tansy Tormental up on the fabric shelf.

One of my favorite views~

THE DESK~and world map so I can see where all the dollies go to live.
And plenty of kitty beds since they follow me from room to room all day long!

Not a particularly "better homes and gardens" style, but it's home, it's me and it's AFFORDABLE...and I can see my horsies from my studio window!!

my little bugster~Skeet, he has a place under my desk.

and little Skeet

Tom, Leo and my 3lb. papillon pup Skeet.

Leo the lion kitty loves sleeping with his polydactils over his face.

Tom and Leo have been hanging around napping together a lot lately.

Skeet just watches from a distance.

I just visited all the blogs I have listed. It was a fun journey and eye opening in some cases.

So many fun things to read and pictures to see, and art to appreciate. As I have mentioned in the past, I only advertise for those who return the favor, so as I check my blogs, I add or delete as necessary.

I would love to add anyone who wants to play!! It is amazing how many 'hits' you will get on your blog from others, especially popular well visited blogs.

Just drop me a note.. and thanks for the entertainment, I really love taking a moment apart from reality, and jumping into yours!!
