we got some 'floaters' at archie mcfee's.... they're little glass mermaids that dangle from clear glass baloons.  other than that, Bowie's tank has a tim burton character (trash girl) keeping him company.  and Max just has the classic plastic plants and vintage marbles.  gotta love betas Smiley

other than that, i'm just a big fan of cleaned up action figures in a bowl.  easy to clean when you change the water

libby's about 7 monthes old.  we got her from the humane society... as far as we can tell she's black lab/shepard/rott mix.  and she's a dearrrrrrrrrr girl.  i just picked her up from the kennel and all the workers just gushed about how sweet and loving she was LOLOL(insert proud mama).  we took her out to a farm field in denmark a few weeks ago.  another couple were out there with their enormous wolf hounds and i was amazed at how well libby was able to keep up.  she was running like a greyhound out there LOL  very playful and very submissive with other dogs.  i bet she'd love ramone.

we had two weddings.... the first was pretty traditional but with a few tweaks in our favor.  its amazing how fast i could be guilted into things like tuxes and wearing shoes. but atleast i made my own dress... and stayed firm on the hemp silk
getting me ready....

we got married in the beautiful church my dh works at... here's me and my nieces.  they twirled they're brains out

our first dance was to the Grateful Dead song "they love eachother"  and our dj was a dear friend who treated us to a 20 MINUTE LONG live rendition LOLOLOL  and no one would come out and dance by us.
oh, except my twirling neices

the wedding was in greenbay where all hydrangeas grew white... so my sister cut a whole bush worth of her hydrangeas from her yard in seattle, wrapped the ends i wet towels and mailed em overnight in a rubbermaid box.  total cost for flowers, 100 bucks

heres my very sweet and accomodating bridesmaids

my hubby with my niece... the reception was at this huge old ballroom in the middle of the country.  all victorian.

here we are in the limo... excuse the boobage... the corset i had made was incredible on the waist, but any sitting forced the girls up to unatural places.... and i couldn't put my head back cuz the hairdresser had sewn my waist length dreads into this bulky but pretty waterfall looking french braid

i've made a few things from this.... here's what i have pictures of... i made Ellie for a crafting smackdown.  i won  Grin 

and here is her big sister, Bunny.  my husband has taken an odd shine to bunny.  i've caught him napping with her on the couch on occasion.  and once, when i was beyond frustrated, i slammed bunny on the couch several times... from the look on his face, you woulda thought i was swinging the cats around.  so when he goes on extended weekends for work, i slip her into his bag.  he was even a little uncomfortable with me putting the needles through her paws  Roll Eyes

i love the hourglass sweater!!!!  but i swore i wouldn't knit myself a sweater until after i lost this weight.

(((((((((neti pots))))) i love mine.  it makes rob gag to watch me though.  he was trying to talk to me once while i did it, and when i went to answer him... neti pot still in nose... something of major size came slithering out my sinuses LOLOL sorry for the visual, but the already converted, i'm sure you know of what i speak.  i haven't used it all summer but was just thinking this week i needed to pull it out.  i buy the sea salt in bulk at the health food shop.  they sell some premade mixtures of salt and mints or st. johns wort or echinecea to help boost healing and what not.. i always laugh at the pictures they provide online of it

theres a day on every dready's horizon that you never expect... the day yer spirit says its time to chop em.  she'd been claiming she was gonna cut em for 6 monthes before we did it.  i kept telling her she was crazy.  til one day she walked in after work and said 'today's the day.'  and we just knew.  i swear to god, she was shaking like a leaf as i cut em.  we only got half of them combed out before we had to pass out.  the next morning she woke up so early and couldn't get goin to finish the job fast enough.  hahahahahaha  i thought she was crazy then.  but over the last year, i've had more and more lucid dreams where i'm running my favorite old brush through my long silky black hair again... where i can feel my scalp again.... a day when i can go to a resturaunt and not have the waitress ask if she can touch my hair.... hahaha a day when i don't hear a kid at the drug store whisper "pssst... mommie.... look at THAT girl!!!"  hahahha  my husband gets a nervous look in his eye when i talk about cutting em off.... the same look i get when he talks of shaving the beard  Grin  enjoy those punky dreads!!!!!!  mine shrank 18 inches in the first year!  dyed em blue/green/purple/pink/turqoise/you name it  and loved how they felt when they bounced around when i danced.  maybe i just need to devise a new way to sport em.... cuz i think i'm stuck in the back in a ponytail/half up/ or all twisted in a neck wrenching bun/beehive rut.  this monster bun is fun looking... but after a few hours of it, you end up with one helluvah headache from the hair pulling and a neck ache from trying to keep it up.

but on cold nights like this one, i do like them... so me thinks they'll survive at least one more winter

my old roomate had her locks for several years til they reached the middle of her back.... when she was ready to chop em, we cut them all up above her shoulders.  then we got the heaviest duty Vo5 conditioner and soaked em.  then, armed with a spray bottle of water, pencils, and those unbreakable plastic combs.  oh yeah, and lots of wine, dvd's and what not..... 18 hours later we had a garbage can full of old hair and she had a gorgeous silky and healthy head of hair.  it sucked doing it but it was WELL worth the efforts.  it was a blast going to the bar that night and seeing how long it took our friends to realize what was different about her.  i kept my dreads though many times this summer i've been ready to whack em off.  ENJOY YER SHORT DREADS!!!!!!! gawd almighty i miss being able to just bounce around with those punky lil dreads.  i realized last night that my longest are now a few inches past muh butt crack.   Shocked  they're heavy, itchy and unbelievably hot!!!!!  well... here's some pictures
before we cut

after we cut

18 hours later

and after the professional hair cut

thanks to my camera's delay... i'm not stoked at the shots i got of it.  but i'll get some from the other guests later...

not a good pose for showing the dress but a great shot none the less of a great family(and you can spot my sweetie in the gazebo... he married them)

like i said... it didn't hide the fact that baby blue is in there.... but it drew less attention to the fact than a traditional maternity wedding dress would i.e.. empire waists and other higher waists.  i did the godet and the bust with a shimmery overlay and handsewed this beautiful beaded lace on the top of the bust.  and i didn't follow the directions for tacking and hemming the godet.  i basted it together where the pattern said just to see what the bride thought.,... and she hated it.  untacked was much swishier and full i think.
