Welcome To My Colorful World!

Welcome to my colorful world. I am a happy (most of the time!) wife, mom, MeMaw, artist, and art teacher. I am a follower of Jesus Christ. I also love to create, cook, nest, decorate, entertain family and friends, laugh, collect vintage stuff, snuggle my cats and dog, play outdoors, and so much more! In addition to all this, I also publish an online magazine with my dear friend, called Mermaids of the Lake. Oh, and I love a big cup of coffee with cream, a dry martini, red wine, blingy jewelry, pink lipstick, blue fingernail polish. I love color! Beautiful colors inspire, motivate, and move me!!! What's my favorite color? I can't choose. I love them all! Yellow, pink, red, turquoise, blue, purple, orange, green and every variation in between!

I Love Fairy Tales!

Do you like fairy tales?
I agree with Audrey. I love fairy tales! I love so much about them; romance, thrill, danger, intrigue, good vs. evil. Fairly tales let us travel to other lands and times and for me, knowing that these places exist as sure as any place on earth, in the author's imagination, just amazes and thrills me.

I tried to join in on the feminist way of thinking about fairy tales that was so popular for awhile 20 or so years ago. But...  I just couldn't buy into the belief that fairy tales had anything to do with women's rights or our expectations of love and romance, family and more!!!

They are fairy tales, not non-fiction-real-life accounts! I knew they were not real as a child. (at least by the age of six or so) I also knew that my love, Peter Brady was an actor and not really my boyfriend, and that no matter how many times I imagined it I could not wave my pretend magic wand and make Pebbles Flinstone be mine.

I was a pretty darn realistic, rule-following kid, often praised for my common sense. But I sure did love spending time in my beautiful, pretend world, daydreaming and being the heroine in my own fantastic fairy tales.
