Front Page on 8/18/09- woot woot!

Okay so when you make front page on etsy you feel like the...shiznit! You jump around and holler and are king of the wooooooooooooooorld. Then you realize the front page treasury was at 6:00 am and you still have no sales. Oh pickles (saying I am forced to use in poor effort to curse less since there is a 3 year old in the house). Still it made my day (read week). ha ha ha. Thank you Moonovermaize!!!

Okay, so I am drawn to the quirky, unusual and funny…snark also has great appeal. I was tickled pink when etsy ran an article in the storque about just such a thing. So reassuring to know you are not alone in a train of thought. A few winters ago my husband and I sent out a Christmas card that ushered quite a reaction. In Virginia on route 29 there is a gun store (shocker) that has a bear on the roof. A bear you say? Yes. A bear. The best part about said bear is that in the winter he gets dressed up as Santa. So a few years back this was fodder for our card.
I still laugh about how funny I thought this was and imagining certain relatives or friends opening up this piece of mail. Well, at any rate I thought I would also include a few images of funny signs that I came across while at Palouse Falls.

Speaking of funny... a nearby house has set out an (errrrrrrrr) interesting statue.? I have to say that this image really bothers me. Not quite as much as Francis Bacon art but it still is bothersome. Most likely this is due to my overactive imagination. I can just picture him coming to life and running around the neighborhood. I would love to know what you all think. Feel free to post comments.

Walla Walla is the hometown of my lovely Grandma Eva and it will soon be invaded! In roughly a week my Grandma’s cozy house will be stuffed to the gills with family. In August she will be turning 91 (yes, you are correct…I don’t remember the date. I am a no-good granddaughter. The 21st ???). Jake, the goose and I went out west to see Grandma this past spring. I have included a photo of Palouse Falls and if you are planning a trip to this quaint town I highly recommend T.macaroni restaurant and L’Ecole No. 41 winery. Love you Grandma and Happy Birthday!!
