Style at an Older Age

This gentleman was kind enough to let me photograph him. His clothing is well made and stylish. The hat adds just a touch of color and humor. And that sweater! It anchors his outfit solidly in the classic zone. Neutral khakis are the only option here, and flat black walking shoes. Just a peep of a button up and large framed glasses finish his look.
In conversation, he told me that he is a musician, and plays at a local Italian restaurant. Also, he colorizes old lithographs and religious papers. Wow, really love this guy.

DIY - Quick Kid's Room Update

Summery curtain, aqua sheets, surfer art

Surfer art was totally easy: Print one photo from the web. Make 8 copies. Color wash one part of the picture with different colored watercolors. Tape to the wall with black masking tape. Voila!

Surfer art detail
Notice the mattress is on the floor, which keeps the vibe "beachy" and laid back.
For those of you with a keen eye, that's a Monster High calendar on the side of the night stand.

These are my Boos, My skeleton crew, A little strange, But so are you.

Monster High Mania has descended upon my house.
I took these pics with my digital camera from freeze frames of the Ghouls Rule movie. If there are any copyright objections, I will take them down.

What would the neighbors say if we had an Ox?

Today my grand daughter said "I wish we had an Ox named Sven".
I said "What would the neighbors say if we had an Ox?".
She said "Get rid of that Ox!".
So I said "Then on Sunday we'll put a harness on the Ox and make him pull a cart. We'll take all of the neighbors for a ride through town. They'll talk and laugh, and wave at people as they pass by. And when the ride is done, they'll say keep the Ox. We like the Ox so much, we'll get him some red socks. And every Sunday we'll make the Ox pull the neighbors through the his red socks.".
She laughed, and said "ok".

Desigual Fall/Winter 2014 & How to Wash Your Face at Night

These girls complete the fresh look of Desigual designs with a fun, fresh faced attitude. Here's how to be kind to your evening face:
Pull your hair back and secure with an elastic and a hair band so that it is completely off your face.
Take a grape sized dollop of cold cream and rub it over your face.
Rinse with warm water, this will leave a make-up smeary mess.
Suds up with a gentle soap, like Goat's Milk soap.
Rinse with warm water, this will leave your skin clean and dewy.
Follow with your moisturizer, c'est tous.

Totally Freestyle Dancing

I think she was dancing to the soundtrack from Batman from the 60's (the one with Adam West).
