Miscellany Monday



Another Monday has rolled around and Carissa is back from her big wedding photo shoot, all refreshed and renewed.  We're trying hard to welcome Spring here in the South and I bet all of you are, like me, thinking it can't get here quick enough.  Seems it's been a long winter to me and we've had nothing wintery like most of you.  Oh, well, on to MM with Carissa.
Artsy gal........
I belong to a club that calls themselves The Melange Study Club.  We meet September through May and each year we have a theme for our programs.  This years theme has been "Louisiana Artists."  It has been such fun and this past Thursday was no exception.  A young lady right here in our own town gave the program.  She calls herself a "whimsical artist" and I think that is a good description of her art.  I have known her almost her entire life and she is such a fun gal and is talented in so many areas.  I have a lot of her work hanging under the covered part of our patio.  I just purchased the the bright red chicken shown above to hang by our backdoor when I take down my Easter bunny.  Angela paints on old windows, old doors, tin and canvases.  Whatever you desire she can probably paint it.  Oh, to be so talented!


Cutie Patooties.......
   It's Prom time here in our fair city. Hubby's office manager's twin daughters always indulge me to take their pictures and share in some of their fun when it rolls around.  This year they chose the "mermaid" style dresses and of course, since they aren't big as a minute, they carried it off extremely well.  I loved the details of the back of their dresses with the laces.  As it obvious, they had a carnival theme.  I have known these girls since the day they were born and I still do not know which one is Kristen and which one is Krista.  I told them by the time they graduate next year I'm going to work on that. ~smile~


LipSense.........
When I come across a product that I think you need to know about, I feel it is my duty to tell you about it. ~aren't you glad?~
A friend and I went to a Spring Market venue this past Friday and one of the booths had ladies demonstrating a lipstick that does not rub off, does not smear, and is waterproof.  In other words, when you put it on, it is there to stay the day. Well, I don't know about you, but that appeals big time to me. It seems that I am always checking and reapplying my lipstick.  I love, love lipstick and think it is definitely the "finishing touch" for a woman.  It is called LipSense and after it was demonstrated to us, we fell for it "hook, line and sinker" and both left with some. ~sucker~  After two days, I'm loving it!  So, if it sounds like something you might like, click on the link above and check it out.  We're fortunate that one of the local beauty salons carries it and since it comes in over 50 colors, I'm sure it won't be long before we buy another color or two.

As we go through this Easter week may our hearts be reminded that indeed our Redeemer Lives.......

  1. Good morning, CiCi, Lovely whimsical art by your friend, I am always so awed by gifted people with gifted hands.

    What beautiful young ladies, the twins are, and that lipstick I have already bookmarked the link. Like you I find that I am always having to check and put more lip stick on. Thanks for sharing,
    Wishing you a most blessed Holy Week.

  2. Hey sweet mama!! That artist is talented; I love the whimsy style! What pretty prom girls... Such a cute carnival theme and great pictures. I think my friend uses that lipstick because she often has to use makeup remover to get it off. Ha! Hope you have a good Holy Week celebrating our Savior. Love you!!

  5. Amen to the last statement: my Redeemer lives! Oh, and those girls are beautiful, and their dresses stunning!! The red chicken would make me smile every time I walked in the door. Love him (her?)--kudoes to the artist. Let me know if the LipSense stays a winner with you. I definitely love lipstick, too, but hate that most of it doesn't stay put more than a couple hours.

  6. Isn't Prom time a fun time? And your girls are just beautiful. I love the whimsical art and think the little red chicken will be quite the welcome at your back door. Think I will check out the lipstick for a friend who complains about not being able to keep hers on, if not for myself. Thanks for the hint.

  7. Oh wow, look at that beautiful art. Love all the bright colors. I always dreamed of wearing a flashy mermaid dress one day. Well that time has come and gone. Have a beautiful week!

  8. Love the whimsical art and that lipstick sounds like something I need. I have found a pretty good one that stays on through a lot, I even have to use eye makeup remover to get it off, but this sounds like it may be even better. I'll have to look into it. - Wearing your dad's cross today. Hope he is doing well!

  10. Thanks for LipSense. I use to buy it about 10 years ago and loved it. I don't know why I ever stopped! I love the art work and the chicken you bought. The manager's twins are so cute and I love their dresses. Hope they had a great time. Have a great week and Happy Easter to you and yours.

  11. So fun to read your posts! I love the whimsical style of this artist. I'm sure your back door will look so nice. I have to say that I'd forgotten all about Lip Sense. I used to have several of them and yes they were so good. I never had to reapply lipstick all day long. Hmm ...I may need to get me some too.

    Blessings and love,
    Debbie
