Ecoutez l'histoire De Bonnie and Clyde...

I have finally come to my senses and I have started an account with Etsy. When I get my paintings loaded I will come back and tell everyone. It seems like such a nice place and I love all the items offered on the site. So very soon my art will be out there in this beautiful wide world.

Some random thoughts for today:

In Ireland they charge you .25 cents for a plastic bag. The country has cut down its usage by 90%. Can you believe that? And the money earned goes towards environmental clean up. I think I'm going to write some letters to my congress people. I don't know about you, but I really don't like seeing plastic bags in trees or around birds necks.

Ritapita has has made me laugh so hard. She has figured out my 6 Degrees of Separation from Kevin Bacon. I'm still laughing because whenever I think of Keven Bacon I picture him in Footloose.

I have been listening to a lot of Serge Gainsbourg and Bridget Bardot. I think I am picking up french this way. At least I will be able to sing a french song.

These are some wild turkeys running around near the nuclear plant-aww they're radioactive.
They gobbled at us too. That made me giggle.

And here are some jellies and robins eggs just because I love how the colors make me smile.

I love candy.

On another note, I have stuff on Etsy and there is no movement. I wonder who sells stuff? Of course, I put on paintings of an octopus and collage flags, but perhaps I should just do some of my paintings. Will you email me and give me the link to yours?

Candy is so pretty.

of course I will, right now I just have an account. I'm going to schlep some paintings of various sizes down to a UPS store and see how much shipping costs. What do you use?

I can't believe your stuff doesn't sell there. Do you have paintings up locally in galleries?

I love Etsy, I bought Christmas for my mom and most of my friends on Etsy, I'll have to show you my hat, from Hatsy, I could see you wearing it

The candy in the jar is so pretty and all my favorites - good thing I'm not around, or I'd eat it all up!

I love that idea of charging for plastic bags, can't imagine anything like that happening around here in the super-size ME states, pfft.

Faith was very excited to see the jelly beans. She loved them - she now wants to eat them.

I can't wait to see what you put on etsy!!

That's way cool on the etsy thing!

Ugh, there are always plastic bags in the trees behind my house. I hate them!

French? Just like Air!

I always thought wild turkeys were really skittish, but these don't seem that way. Mebbe cuz they're radioactive!

I love robin eggs. I stocked up at Target for 19 cents a bag after Easter! I still have a bunch. I thought about taking a photo of some too.

jc-I have one thing. let's recount-one thing on etsy. I found a painter that does some cool stuff and she sells a bunch. so there is hope.

Air-ah the french boys. Charlotte Gainsbourg-the daughter (who is in Science of Sleep) sings some songs written by the duo. It really is a small world.

I bet they glow at night-the turkeys not the robins eggs.

"aww they're radioactive."

That made me laugh, SO HARD! (Not that the turkeys will soon start glowing green, although actually that does amuse me too, sorta... but that I could picture myself saying "Awwww... look at the wittle radioactive turkeys...")

I love the idea of charging for plastic bags... I bet a LOT less people would be throwing theirs away after use. I'm not sure how the large chain stores would react though.. it would make their check-out lanes move slower that way, and you know they're all about cutting costs. *rolling eyes*
