a monochromic observance


dark, light and greys

what a mysterious view

a vast history unknown


such an enticing enigma



as a true testament of time…

As those who follow me know,  I have art work everywhere in my house.  98% belongs to the boys and the other 2% belongs to professional artists and friends. (Yes, Gigi, that would be you.)  Last year, I commissioned Peyton to draw a portrait of his sister.

The above photo was posted awhile back on Michelle’s Weekly Pet Challenge.  The first time I laid eyes on it, I saw the perfect Pee portrait. So with this in mind and an empty wall, conveniently located around the corner from last year’s portrait, I decided to commission another piece.

The little dancer music box was a gift from my grandfather.  It is over 40 years old and, yes, it plays Tchaikovsky’s ‘Swan Lake’

Nutcracker Treasures

  All of my Nutcrackers are handmade in Germany – how someone can craft by hand a little itty bitty one astounds me.  These Nutcrackers arrived via my mom’s friend who brought them back from a trip to Germany.
