Girls Girls Girls...and an Englishman

I've not been around much...the holidays have kept me buzzing, inundated with filling orders and keeping a watchful eye on the elves to make sure they are getting all of my orders filled in time.

Whilst I am running hither and tither, I thought you might enjoy some eyecandy...a
la this sweet little treasury full of girls, which includes my print "Worship" {right}, available now as a limited edition print in the shop.

Girls Girls Girls

✿ ✿ ✿

"Girls Girls Girls" was curated by EnglishmaninPS, a fine chap and artist living in Palm Springs, CA with his lovely wife and child.

Some things to note about this Englishman and ponder before you peruse his art:
1} He feels uncomfortable high fiving and would much rather shake hands.
2} He doesn't like cheese, much to his wife's disappointment.
3} He can put a whole mars bars {the American "Milky Way" candy bar} in his mouth sideways.

How dandy!
...Now, do go and check out his work!

Freaky Friday...Clueless in Washington

Alaska Governor and failed Vice Presidential Candidate Sarah Palin appeared on local television this week to pardon a turkey from slaughter and ironically proceed to do an interview whilst another poor turkey is slaughtered by a worker in the background.
Supposedly advised about what was going on behind her, Palin told the reporter “no worries” and the interview continued.
Scenes in the interview include the worker behind Palin looking back and smiling into the camera while slicing a turkey’s neck, draining its blood and twisting its head off.

MSNBC has a mostly safe for viewing copy of the video with the nasties blurred out, but you get the idea...

Suffice it to say, Sarah Palin will never ever get my vote!

Did Somebody Say Diet...??

Unfortunately I haven't had much time to post lately. With the holidays coming up and all the shows we are doing, we have {thankfully} been inundated with orders.

But, here is something we found so very funny...we absolutely could not stop laughing at his cute little face and that chubby body when he finally does get "stuck" in the box.

What a wunderful Art Show we had this past weekend

Now that I'm a bit less stressed about getting things ready for the show & I'm actually sleeping again, I can continue to blog on goodies, fashion and gossip.

"Captive" {right} is just one of my four new paintings SOLD at my show.


by Patricia Lucas
Acrylics, Paper & Ink on Panel

Prints are available for sale. Lots of new goodies, including new soy candle scents, travel sized soy candles, a new line of greeting cards, new magnet sets and new art to show off, most of which will be available on Etsy soon! Most of my magnet sets sell out at the shows, but this time, I tripled the quantity of my limited edition prints, so now you will be able to buy them online as well.

If you saw something at the show that you haven't yet seen posted in my shoppe, please convo me HERE. ...and THANK YOU to all of you who came out to show your support. It really means a lot.

Freaky Friday...Christina Aguilera

What is happening to Christina Aguilera...?

I can't quite figure out what has changed about her that's making her look so strange these days, aside from the huge breasts that she claims are real.
Ummm, yeahhhh, most real boobs look that ODD.

{see right}

I used to think Christina would go further than Britney Spears because Christina's voice is so amazing and Britney's voice has pretty much always been digitized.

since Christina has been MIA for a while, is she now trying to play catch up by dressing like Britney{as shown below} or trying too hard to stay young and hip and instead heading down that slippery slope of plastic surgery gone wrong...?

Britney performing, then Christina at the VMAs in waaay too tight attire

Strapped in and bumpy at the VMAs

Showing off her perfectly fake looking 'real' boobs...

Something is just different about her...

Better, but still No...Please put them away.

A Week in the Life...

A week in the life of Angelina Jolie and family in the South of France...

W Magazine
has published photos of Angelina and her family taken by life partner Brad Pitt. Here, some of our favourites...

Click here to read the cover article at W Magazine and the great comments that people are making about this ultra-private, yet ultra-public photo shoot. You can also read about Brad's request to shoot Angelina in film that had to be sourced and flown in since it is no longer manufactured here.

I Got Your Crazy...

Britney Spears is making yet another comeback ...thankfully.
We'd much rather hear about her music than her messed up personal life.

Recently released, her new "Womanizer" video.

Again, her voice is heavily digitized and the video itself seems to be no different than her other work, aside from costume and wig changes.

Too bad...she could have really pushed this one.
...and you gotta love the line "You think I'm crazy...I got your crazy."

She's got that down, huh?

Heel-Less Wonders

By now I'm sure that you've seen Victoria "Posh Spice" Beckham in her killer latex, thigh high 5 1/2" platform boots - with no heel.

These beauties are by Antonio Berardi and are the very latest in the "extreme shoe" trend that's been happening in fashion for the
past few years...and I gotta say that I absolutely love them!

Berardi says, "...It’s just like wearing a regular shoe. They are graceful and there is a ballerina nature about them. Having a heel is really just psychological.”

Here, some other wild and wonderful artistic versions of shoes by mainstream designers...

Freaky Friday: Then and Now...

As you know, I'm not a fan of any sort of plastic surgery or injectibles, so thankfully, at 38, I'm still fortunate to look about 10 years younger than I am.

However, I AM fascinated by those who go under the knife and morph into someone else, be it for the better or worse. Here, Before and After shots of some celebrities {and B-Listers} who have undergone a procedure or two.

{ { Megan Fox } }
I think Megan Fox is gorgeous, but I'm not fond of her saline implants that look like boulders.

{ { Scarlett Johansson } }
A new slimline nose and cheek implants did a lot for her Hollywood look.

{ { Jennifer Garner } }
Even those we think are naturally beautiful, undergo a lip injection or procedure.

{ { Charlie Sheen } }
Too bad they don't offer personality transplants...

{ { Carrot Top } }
ick... and we didn't think it could get any worse.

{ { Tori Spelling } }
One of the queens of plastic surgery...2006 was her best "face", but her boobs have always been a disaster...

{ { Kate Beckinsale } }
Boobs, then no boobs...

{ { Anna Faris } }
You can't become a "Bunny" without a major overhaul.
