Don't you just love saying that word?! It crack's me up, and remind's me of Sylvester off Looney tunes.. Sufferin Succotash ! Well anyhoo, if you don't like saying it, you'll love eating at the tasty restaurant Succotash in K.C.

It has a hometown hipster vibe, with totally artsy decor ( right up my alley) and delish dishes that will put a smile on your face and yummy comfort to your breadbasket! :) Happy Thursday, Dawn
I was delighted when I walked through this fab handcarved/handpainted door!
You can't go wrong with bicuit's and gravy.
I'm gonna make this Rainbow Brite looking awesome eight layer cake!! Isn't it flippin amazing?
I told you it would put a smile on your face...or at least a smirk on your bacon face!

30 Minutes of Art A Day

It is rumored that with only 30 minutes a day we can change our figures into svelt hot bod's.

Or perhaps we can follow Rachel Ray and make a tasty meal in 30 minutos.

Well I'm going for the goal of exercising my imaginitive mind for 30 minutes a day and seeing what artistic dish will likewise feed my creative soul!
One of my fave bloggers Alisa Burke put the idea out there, and I thought I would give it a go. I have to say it has put me in the relaxed mode of art work with no pressure to please or perfect, just have fun. I say give it a try! And happy mid week ! Dawn

Over the weekend ...

...I hope you had the chance to enjoy...
- natures morning bloom after a cooling rain..

- doing a little jig with your smiling doggie...

- an evening at the theatre, where you sat munching warm cinnamon roasted nut's..

- and finally an unusual, yet respectful chauffeur who drove you wherever you wanted to go....

Yes indeedy , I hope you too enjoyed such a weekend:)

Hallmark Museum

Another place we toured when outta town was the Hallmark Card Museum. Of course I enjoyed the vintage card's the most, and you could watch the tear jerking commercial's, and make your own bow with the " bow machine". Or just grab's some perfect for every occasion card's. No really, my friend Em even found me a mashed potato lover card. Strange but true. Well the weekend is here so have a good one!

Burn baby burn

Yep, I'm on a wood burning kick alrighty! I started with the shower gift a few days ago, and then found some wood scrap to play with! I think I will do several of these. I'm really diggin how the watercolor has a vivid yet almost pastel appearance.

Since the weather has finally cooled somewhat, I can think creatively again, and as usual have multiple projects going on at one time. I find that works best for me. When I get in a rut, or just tired of one I go work on another, then come back.
This may take longer, but keep's my art enjoyable. Hope you can take a few minutes today to do something
 you enjoy ! Dawn:)

Can't go wrong with Fine Chinese, and Artisian Icecream

I love me some good Chinese, and while in K.C. we really enjoyed Bo Lings. Delish food and striking decor. Follow that up with one the best ice cream's I have ever had... The goat cheese and cherry is unbelievably excellent at Glace, and I was a happy girl! Oh and happy Tuesday to you all!

Umm, i had to take a pic of the bathroom, it was too good.
Ooohhh, mama!
