do leopards meow or purr?

I do.
I also growl, and bark, sometimes.

Some old outfits when I wore leopard print.
These posts are shown herehere, and here.

I saw this Beyond Biba movie, a few weeks ago,
and thoroughly enjoyed it

Barbara Hulanicki Beyond Biba movie watch here.
It's beyond inspiring! 

In case you don't see the movie:
Here are some of Barbara's architecture and interior designs.
Her website also shows Her fabric printsand
Her commercial illustrations.

Here's some more Barbara Hulanicki things:

This Biba Exposition is shown here.
(No, I've never seen it in person only online.)

Another look of the same exposition shown  here.
(Do you see the leopard print coat with hood?)

I dig 
Beck's version of Bob Dylan's Leopard Skin Pill Box Hat.
..."Yes, I see you got your brand new leopard-skin pill-box hat
Well, you must tell me, baby
How your head feels under somethin’ like that
Under your brand new leopard-skin pill-box hat"...

It's that season

For wearing colored tights
There I am sporting mine.

My skirt and moss green boots were thrifted.

It's that season for picking pumpkins.
My nieces EJ and Lil Bug, and my nephew JJ,
at the pumpkin patch.

My nephew Speed Racer choosing his pumpkin.

It's that season of the witch.

"When I look out my window,

Many sights to see.
And when I look in my window,
So many different people to be
That it's strange, so strange.
You've got to pick up every stitch
Must be the season of the witch"...Season of the Witch by Donovan

Rain Season
My guy in our hotel West Palm Beach, Florida August 2007

Yes, we went to Florida during their rainy season.
No, we did not pack an umbrella.
Yes, the rain pelted fast and furious.
Yes, we bought this huge umbrella at an art museum.
Yes, we actually used it then.
Yes, my grandma believed that opening umbrellas indoors was bad luck.
No, I don't believe that.
Yes, we still have this umbrella.
No, we never use it now.
Yes, my guy will pose for me.
Yes, I want to bite his toes. ;)

kitties and puzzles

When I was about 6 or 7 years old, we had a kitty cat called Puzzles. We didn't have her for very long.

Obviously this hot blonde chick isn't me.
She's a model.

Little me wa
s told that Puzzles ran away.
This is me at age 6 or 7 yrs. old. Back then I believed whatever my parents told me.

Here's another hot model wearing cute kitty clothes.

 I didn't find out until I was an adult, that Puzzles, (the kitty), didn't run away. Instead, she was taken to a shelter (or something). Yeah, apparently she made a mess. My mom doesn't like cats.

My twin nieces, nephew, and their grandma, with actual puzzles, not Puzzles (the kitty), from December 2012.

My nephew Speed Racer with his puzzle, this past Summer, 2013.

Years later I grew allergic to cats. I don't know if I still am, because I take allergy medicine everyday.
 I just know that now, when I'm around cats that belong to my friends, I don't seem to have problems. They sure like to come up to me, and want my attention. I don't know why.

At my friend's house that has a cat, in 2011.
(I wish someone would have told me to adjust my blouse
 because my breast was hanging out. Jeez).

In 2011, I would tutor at a, mansion like fancy house, twice a week. I would sit in their formal dining room, where I would help their children read.

Another photo of me in 2011.
Omg, is it me, or does it look my breast is popping out again?

While sitting in their fancy chair, their cat would climb up, and sit down right behind me. Yes, on the same chair! I was like, um, okay. 
I didn't encourage the behavior. I just thought it was odd. I don't know why their kitty did that. Do you?

"We missed you hissed the lovecats
We're so wonderfully wonderfully wonderfully
Wonderfully pretty!"The Lovecats by The Cure

What do kitties like to eat?
Here's my scrapbook page of:
Japanese Garden Florida August 2007

The other night I watched
2 Broke Girls Episode, And the Kitty Spank Spank.

Maybe somebody should have spanked that fancy kitty, that wanted to share the chair I was already sitting in. There was a huge, long, table full of other chairs it could have used! But no, that kitty wanted to sit behind me.

this past week

I wore this outfit inspired by 
this inspiration monday of two birds challenge.

My dress and shoes were thrifted.

This week's inspiration was:
Kerry Washington

I admired the outfits of Kerry Washington's
 character Olivia Pope worn in the TV show Scandal.

I drooled over these black and white 
Juicy Couture Runway Looks.
Juicy Couture Fall 2013 RTW
Juicy Couture Fall 2013 RTW

I laughed over these fun photos
of my nephew Speed Racer.

I was glad to get some photos of
my twin nieces and nephew.

I read and enjoyed these 3 books:

1.Someday, Someday, Maybe by Lauren Graham
(Yes, that's the actress Lauren Graham of Parenthood & Gilmore Girls).
2. Here I Go Again by Jen Lancaster
3. The Art of Forgetting by Camille Noe Pagan

I scrapbooked my Florida Palm Tree photos from our West Palm Beach, trip in August of 2007. 

I relished the cooler Autumn temperatures outside.

months ago

 I wore thrifted clothes head to toe,
using the colors and patterns to attempt
This Style Imitating Art Challenge by Salazar of !4 Shades of Grey.
Blouse, skirt, and shoes thrifted.
My brown tank top is so old, I don't know where I got it.

My outfit's art inspiration was:
Illumination by Colette Calascione

Months ago, my guy painted our bedroom.

Months ago, I read 3 out of 4, of these books.

Months ago, my guy took these photos on a bike ride.
Months ago, my brother went swimming with my nephew. 

Months ago, my other nephew had longer hair.

Months ago, my nieces got new trikes.

Months ago, I created this art journal page.
Our bedroom is now painted a color called
Iconic Sky.
After nearly 5 years, we were ready for something new. It's like the color of a robin's egg.
The room looks lighter, and brighter.

Months ago, I found this bird shell,
 outside my front door.

Months ago, my life seemed different,
 because that life was,
 months ago.
