permanent decision

C'est la vie
[(say lah vee)]

An expression used to play down some minor disappointment: What can you do; "c'est la vie." From French, meaning “that's life."

*ADVICE PLEASE: phrase I'd like as my 1st tattoo. Yeh OR Neh?

The Way I See It #232:

You simply can’t make someone love you if they don’t. You must choose someone who already loves you. If you choose someone who does not love you, this is the sort of love you must want.

-- Israel Horovitz
Playwright/screenwriter, from his new play, The Secret of Mme. Bonnard's Bath.

spell it out

Fun things to come with these. I am so hooked on Etsy, all I can do is shop shop shop. But its good shopping because its ME being CREATIVE again... I thought I was losing my touch for awhile with all the crazy around me. So here they are, the metal stencils I purchased, next is shopping for polymer clay & image inserts to complete such a cool project. When they're done they should look like the last few images...but with my own nifty twist.

Final goal will be to find a deep set frame to place them in & told ya, the "c" & "s" thing... its all around me, except him the real thing.

I went antiquing yesterday, in search of an old desk. The first shop i went to had a beautiful burnt orange/yellow desk, my eyes went right for it when i walked in. I ran to it, while wanting to shout "its mine, i saw it first" get there take the clutter off the top and see a BRIGHT orange sold sticker. WHAT, no Its perfect i want it. I pick up a lamp shade cover the sticker and then tell the much for the desk, I'd like it please. All to be put back in my place.

This one place yesterday had things packed on top of each other. And I mean packed, floor to ceiling...literally. Tight isle to walk thru and I wasn't feeling it. Except the house the antique store filled had a beautiful stair case. I was mesmerized. Three Floors that a beautiful old wooden spiral staircase led you. Oh and that's were I saw Susy Scribbles, when did she become an antique? She was stacked on old dressers and chairs, she sat in her little white chair with her head touching the dusty ceiling.

I did go back to the first store where the orange table still sat haunting me. I found an okay white desk that i brought home....still looking though, i need a shabbier chic piece to inspire me. I've also been finding a lot of "s" things where ever I go....I'm taking it as a sign, for the better.
