Signs of Water

Art Doodles

I am the little girl from the movie Signs. I drink half to three quarters of a glass of water and then leave it. All.Over.The.House.

This especially happens at bedtime. I bring a new cup of water into my bedroom each night for that one last sip of water right before I drift off to sleep or for the middle of the night parched mouth.

But… After one night of a glass sitting on my nightstand it has microscopic dust bunnies, unfortunately, a dog hair or two (thanks Manny!) and old water just doesn’t seem as appetizing as new water.

Cue Maggie! She gave me the perfect solution to my collection of water glasses at my bedside. A water carafe with cup cover. It’s perfectly wonderful and everyone should have one! My water is dust bunny and most important dog hair free. Plus it has our last initial, H, etched into it. I am a huge fan of monograms. HUGE!

Thank you dear Maggie from saving me from the life of hairy dust-bunny filled water!

Now my bedside table, which Maggie helped me pick out from a local thrift shop, looks even more glamorous!

Childhood Library

Art Doodles

My mother has a great love of reading that she has passed down to my siblings and I. She started with her favorite picture books to assist us in forming our own appreciation for the quiet act of reading.

My sister recently passed down a couple of books from our childhood that her little girls have been able to enjoy for awhile. The books are slightly tattered but still in very good reading condition with lots of memories.

The Book Titles:

No More Baths by Brock Cole

Oh, Were They Ever Happy! by Peter Spier

Bored-Nothing To Do! by Peter Spier

Burt Dow Deep-Water Man by Robert McCloskey

Thanks, Kay, for passing along a little family heritage!

No wonder I learned to love to read! The imagery in these picture books is wonderful! Makes me want to sit down to paint and read all at the same time. To the love of art and reading!
