Memorial Day Weekend or Bust!

So I don't have any pics loaded to post along with my ramblings so here is just a little update.  Tomorrow starts the festivities with some lady friends arriving from Austin Texas to celebrate birthdays and have a little fun in Seattle.  Also hoping from other ladies to visit from Canada and Denver!  And then it will be off to Viva Las Vegas for Punk Rock Bowling!!  Arrive Monday for bands such as Cock Sparrer and Agnostic Front to name a couple.  Staying at the Flamingo and so Tuesday will be recovering by their awesome pool!!  Then Wednesday it is off to AUSTIN TEXAS!!!  More music to be heard in this city for Chaos in Tejas to take place Thursday to Sunday!  I can not wait for all the fun in the sun hanging with awesome friends and listening to a ton of great music!!  And maybe just maybe I'll win a little extra spending money in Vegas:-)

Ok so I lied..  A couple pictures from the last couple of weeks.  First is me and my ol man on Easter Sunday while I was back home soaking up the sun.  Second is a wedding in Pikes Place Market.. I loved the umbrellas and the idea of a lovely spring wedding.  Third is a post card from Amsterdam that I had recently framed for a little decor.
Well that's all folks.  Have a fantastic weekend!!

Fall into Spring!

So it has been a bit crazy lately!  Unfortunately I had to fly home Easter weekend for my aunt's funeral.  She battled a long, hard time with breast cancer and is finally resting in peace.. Bless her soul and R.I.P.  I have been so excited about spring but of coarse in Seattle we usually get teased with one awesome sunny day and then the rest are overcast with some showers:(  Oh well I will keep positive and do sun dances and pretend it is nice all the time:) 

So I decided to post a picture of my encaustic art piece even though I am not satisfied with it.  It was inspired by day of the dead in Mexico and since my aunt has passed I dedicate it to her in celebration of her life. 

Picture of grave at El Dia de las Muertos beach in Sayulita, Mexico.  One of my favorite beaches!!!

 Yesterday was one of those nice spring days so while I was having an amazing day I picked up these sunflowers to spruce up my apartment!

 Then while I was walking to the store I decided to stop at Value Village to say hi to a friend and rummage around.  I found a book by singer on how to sew, which I decided it better to have at all times instead of trying to get at the library since I am super beginner!  And I found this little treasure which reminded me of home back in good ol North Dakota.

So after my adventures yesterday I decided to reupholster my kitchen table chairs.  I was thinking it would be semi easy but of coarse I was in for a good work job.  I however will not be posting pics yet because I only finished one chair since I figured first chair was practice and second will see if I can do a little bit better...  We will see:)

Now off to read a book I received from my good friend miss Abby Jane and off to bed.  Goodnight and happy dreams to all!
