Lint

Today I have nothing but gum wrappers in my pocket, receipts, one dime and three dried out pens at the bottom of my purse. And this:
I have been saving this pic for the next time I feel peeved, but I simply cannot wait any longer. No, I'm not peeved; instead, this makes me smile. Tiny baby mice crawling around on a cat's head. And then there's this:
I could not choose just one, so here are both The Torrances and The Griswolds; if you look rully rully close you will see my nose pressed against the canvas, smell the open need to have my own family drawn badly but oh-so perfectly just so.
I mean, right? Find more here.

And then this, always this:
Pushed down deep into my pocket like a talisman, the edges worn soft like lint. This.

I love Zoey's style. Her little Moroccan dress and gold flats and so precious. I totally want them both.

I know--I totally want to dress like my daughter. Even though I buy most of her clothes and dress her in the morning, somehow she pulls it off with her own style.

Thank you all for your sweetness. :)

Wow, that's all I can say. I must have those portraits! That's a riot, thanks for sharing. Although I think Danny should have had his finger raised in that one.
