Another early post...




Well, earlier than usual. We can't seem to wake up later than 5:30am these days...this morning it was 4:30 - ugh! But it's been fun to have the mornings together. I made biscuits and honey butter and we enjoyed them with strawberries and coffee. Sanguine our cat is has decided she prefers Phylo's mat in my office more than hers and the poor guy isn't brave enough to reclaim it so he's retreated to his big bed where he sleeps at night. I put his little mat up against the wall and now Sanguine is sulking around and meowing at me. Such drama with the animals today!

In less dramatic - but just as fuzzy and cute - shop news, I have 2 new little plushes up! Abby is a polka dotted mini owl with a corduroy back, and Lillian is a lap dog with a gorgeous Japanese fabric and my own handmade felt eye details. I'm going to try and get finished up with more plushes as soon as possible, but have to finish some mural sketches first. I'm finding it hard to focus - is it possible I had TOO much coffee this morning??

Off to collect research on the Serengeti plains, then draw my best lions, giraffes, hippos, wildebeasts, zebras, birds,...

Oh, and here are a couple more shots from Paris...the first one is in the Louvre Museum in the section of Napoleon's apartments - gaudy goodness!! The second is from a window in the Louvre looking out at the glass pyramids, right before the sun burst through and we got lovely blue skies.

How does it work in the 'Napoleon room.' Are you roped off? Are there a billion docents making sure you don't sit on the settees?

Yes, those darn velvet ropes - because of them that's as close as I could get to the settees! Saw Napoleon's bed too - looked extremely statuesque, and uncomfortable.
