As The Oscar High begins to fade...

Morning strangers.

How was your weekend????

As you know we had the lil cheesy herself, the one and only mean cheese...and let me just say for the record that this weekend she was all mean and all cheese (also 100% adorable so that makes up for it).

She has been sick for the past week and in the hospital so I think she was just feeling stir crazy and all fired up with "piss and vinegar" and my Dad would have said.

She was on a rampage through the house, like was almost frightening. This weekend Keith and I were hit, things were thrown at us, I had food and medicine spit onto me, oh and she got up at 3:00am on Sunday morning....

so needless to say when it was time for the Oscars last night I did not have it in me anymore to get all glam for the event, though in my head...well I was just fabulous.

My bubs watched the awards with me, and the strange thing is...that just him being there meant the world to me...sure he was working on stuff but just having him there making fun of everyone, made me realize yet again how we are supposed to be together.

I had the bubs on Bradgelina look out, as I was prepping some canvases for work today...sadly they appeared to be a no show.

And I hate to say this as it is against almost everything I believe in, but Penelope Cruz looked Beautiful last night, her Versace gown was like something ripped from a fairy tale, normally I loathe her as I can never forget the horrible relationship with Tom Cruise or the fact that it appears to me that one of her eyes is larger than the a Picaso painting....

sorry, I digress.

she looked beautiful, much to my chagrin I cannot say the same thing for Nicole Kidman, or Anne Hathaway, even Cate Blanchet seemed slightly "off", it made me feel better for not dressing up.

As a special treat during the ceremony I drank Cherry Fizz wine, can you believe it? Wine Coolers!!!

I felt like I was in high school again and had snuck out to the cemetery to drink wine coolers and just lay in the grass and look up at the clouds and just let my mind get all dreamy and slow...thinking about how all I ever do is feel like I am homesick for something that does not even exist.

Does that make sense?

probably not, but then again, I can seem senseless at times.

I have a bunch of stuff I need to get finished today, a beautiful commission project that I am doing for the talented Tanekeya, as well as photograph and list some new pieces for my shop, as it has been a while since it was stocked up full, I have some wonderful new little lovelies today, lots of vintage ladies and some other beauties...maybe later I will add some photos, or I will list photos tomorrow....or if I am too lazy you can visit my "ye olde etsy shoppe" to see them.

Thanks to the lovely Tara and Michelle who bought some of my new vintage image pieces just mere seconds after they were listed, you are both so adorable.

The piece I am showing today is brand new and just listed last night right before the Oscars...It is called "Such a Long Way From Home"...please note that the color is eerily similar to Cherry Fizz wine coolers....

coincident? I don't think so.

I so wanted to watch Joan River's red carpet show, but alas, I was unable to. I knew though you would give a quick recap today. Penelope needed a necklace. They don't wear enough jewelry. lol.

Hopefully, your next visit with the Mean Cheese will go better.

I used to drink wine coolers with my friends in the cemetary, too!! Only one time we bothered this sacrifical clan of oddballs and they chased us out of there like vermon. I went to an Oscar party and was bored out of my mine. You know, something about Penelope Cruz has always bothered me, maybe it is that fact that one eye is bigger than the other!

I love the new piece - Long Way From Home. Just lovely!

And yes... believe it or not, "thinking about how all I ever do is feel like I am homesick for something that does not even exist" DOES make sense to me. I know exactly what you mean.

Now, let me just interject my problem with Penelope Cruz. How long has she been in the US? And she is still just barely understandable when she speaks? Honestly, I have no idea what she is saying half the time.

But, that's just me. :)

Wine coolers ,Cemetery!! What about Boons farms, or whatever that was???? Yikes, we are twins... Your work, as I always say, is always wonderful. I adore it. The writing intrigues me too...I am so delighted that I did not watch last night. Thank you for the great recap of a horrid show. Awwwwe, the bubs is good, really good (but you are too, he is lucky too)....Have a creative and fab day and week, not that I won't see you again this week, but a pre wishful-happy week. (can we get an "other" button below? just wondering, a no is okay too :) xxo, Vanessa
