Ornament Thursday Ode to Aubergine

ot aubergine 799858 Ornament Thursday Ode to Aubergine

Ode to Aubergine
Just as Julia Childs would say
If she were with us today,
O Aubergine
the colour that is purply black,
O Aubergine
Without you- life would surely lack.

Ok, so there is a reason I’m an unknown poet. Need I say more on this subject?

Helen’s birthday and off to a bead show we went. Armed with $20 I challenged myself to build a showy yet polymer-clay-free aubergine something-or-other from bits at the bead show without going over my $20. I must admit that I’ve seen this style of something on top of something a few places. The unique thing about it is that I made it, and I had enough cash left over for a hotdog, until Helen charged me $1.50 to use a couple of her jump rings. The things we do for jump rings.

Boston Marathon Bib #6728 and 1/4

Boston snail copy 758273 Boston Marathon Bib #6728 and 1/4

Shshshshshshhh! This little fellow named Irving is secretly sneaking into the Boston Marathon to keep my friend Frank Vallin company at Heartbreak Hill. Don’t tell Frank. Irving wants to be a surprise! Here’s to keeping well hydrated! Give a shout out to Frank (and Irving) as they fly (and slime) through the streets of Boston next week.
