My new Etsy Shop Name "GhosTales".
I really wasn't too happy with my old shop name ( CassienadognamedBoo) and wanted something along the Ghost theme since I seem to be drawn to spooky dark fairytale type art. I played around on Photoshop and came up with this design......temporary of course. I'm still working on a better composition and the Lover's eyes.

Thanks Eva and Kristin : )

Thanks a bunch Giggles! I will always cherish your quote book and keep it on my coffee table, use the bag to keep my iPad and books when I go to Chapters for my coffee and book fix : )
I'm not so sure if I will use the cards. I just might keep them for myself until the right occasion that merits them comes along.

"How did it get so late so soon?"........I know, it was the bloody sugar!!!
This past week has been total confusion and disorder, a brain all fogged up and not from the shower.
I am totally fed up with the number of pills I need to take to keep the diabetes in check.
I noticed all of my aches and pains surfaced when I began taking them and so I did a little experiment and didn't take them for a few days, the aches disappeared but the sugars went up. I know my doctor will not be happy with my little investigation but then again I needed to know what was causing the sharp needle pains since all of my other test results were negative.So now it's back to see her and find an alternative route or even better stop eating the stuff I love : )
Needless to say I didn't do much of anything and I wasn't going to post today but then I thought I could share this digital/sketch I did quite a while back. It's a self portrait in caricature. The butterflies and birds , spider webs and spider, the roses and stars ,the old laces and the Pisces sign all describe me. As for the crown , I'm not sure!
I think I will keep this weekend nice and quiet , go on a few walks with the kids and the dog and pick a few pussy willows, always a tradition at this time of year. Maybe the fresh air will entice me to get back on track with the eyes "COME A LITTLE CLOSER". Haven't come up with a name for the series but I can work on that too.
So that's it for now. Take care and enjoy the holiday!
p.s. I'm not sure who left the comment about the light font but your right, I will get to it in time, thanks for the heads up.
Eyes by Rogue Wave ~ Enjoy!

HAPPY EASTER and A HAPPY PAINT PARTY FRIDAY

***********“Come a Little Closer” **********
I was just having a bit of fun playing a little game of “looking for a clue to the identity of the drawn eye in the photograph”. I placed the eye on top of an Ouija Board to convey it's invisible form with the yes and no words barely noticeable, kind of saying “ Yes I'm “The Spirit Eye”, no I'm the Evil Eye or Witch's Eye, the Witch Hazel bottle also being one of the clues. Anyway, didn't really spend a lot of time on the game just thought of it as I posted it. Still a big kid at heart : )
p.s. I don't use the board for it's intended purpose ( I'm a scary cat) I just use it for a Halloween prop.

It was she, Charlotte the Spider who designed and built some wonderful enchanted cottages in the countryside and by the sea. The Fairy Spider even made some pretty pendents for people to wear who admired her story and wanted to show their undying love for her to the world.
Here are some of Charlotte's past creations of SpiderWeb Homes and Adornments
While on her travels Charlotte acquired an extensive collection of antique architectural elements .
One of particular interest in her purchase was this pair of Antique Victorian Regency Gold Frames.
Of course because of their age they have cracks and some discolouration but to Charlotte that's what gives them their alluring beauty.

I am laughing and laughing looking at this picture! So cute! Reminds me of the wolf in the fairy-tale - pretending to be grandma! :D
***A comment I was left on Flickr ……Purrfect fit!
This is my second round of Spring Cleaning for this year and more scheduled before those brightly yellow daffodils are dancing in my garden. Yesterday, my husband and daughter helped me pack the truck and bring boxes of stuff, a collection of tv's and even a much loved wire bird cage ( don't believe in caged birds) for donation to "HOUSE OF LAZARUS" in Mountain….my favourite thrift shop. I almost donated two wool coats but remembered I was saving them for Penny Mats so out they came from the clothes bag destined for HOUSE.

― Audrey Hepburn
I have dreamed all of my life to escape to a world that may just exsist after all. A place far removed from Human Society to one of a Humane Society. Somewhere quiet, serene, still beautiful and untouched by the human hand where all of God's creatures great and small are your neighbours and friends and of course some humans mixed into the equation for casual sporadic conversation when one feels the urgency to refresh their earthly presence.
I created the above banner "Tansy " many moons ago for my Etsy shop but never used it for the simple fact I was too lazy to go back into Dreamweaver to remove the name. Now, many years later I think I will tackle the work on the weekend since hubby rekindled my desire to work on my graphics when he brought home a business card with a picture of me in Bermuda on our honeymoon that he had designed; it definitely wouldn't do unless I want business of a different sort and with liabilities attached of false advertising lol! : ) So now I'll have to rethink the banner and a business card that will more suit the kind of work I do : )
It's funny how thoughts of the day play in the dreams of the night; many wonderful musings came to me as I slept and this was one of them.

"For in an instance I did think I’d seen a zillion stars ablaze" When I had discovered the magical grove of fossilized crystals I thought I had seen stars. This is what it looked like only on the ground amongst the moss. Thanks to Zsaj for helping me interpret the scene I had discovered a few summers past.

Twilight at Sea
The Twilight Hours like birds flew by,
As lightly and as free;
Ten thousand stars were in the sky,
Ten Thousand on the sea;
For every wave with dimpled face,
That leaped upon the air,
Had caught a star in its embrace,
And held it trembling there.
