I'm off on a green adventure to Optimum Health Institute starting this Sunday! For 7 days, my nourishment will come from 100% raw food! Holy Spirulina, Sally! I'll be drinking 8 ounces of wheatgrass juice a day, going to nutrition-ish classes, and doing yoga and stretching classes. I am officially un-plugging from my electronic jungle - bye bye cell phone, TV, and computer. I'll be back 8/9 with updates and pictures!
Viva la new experience!,

an Etsy Treasury. This time, dear Ozetta added my vintage 50s yellow plastic bread box to her Etsy Treasury: the Kitchen to Have. I was listed a while back in another Treasury, so this is my 2nd time. Weeee! It's the little things...

You can read a great article about her work in the LA Times here. And another one here. A 12" x 9" oil on canvas is going for $35,000. My tiny little painting is just 3.25" x 4.75", but hey, it's a Keane! I'm so glad I bought it!

Happy Independence day to all who celebrate! Many moons ago, John Adams, a lawyer, the first Vice Prez and the second President of the United States, wrote to his wife, "I believe that it will be celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary festival... it ought to be celebrated by pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires and illuminations from one end of this continent to the other..."Not so far from the truth!
Me and hubs had a great bike ride today, then went to a friend's house to celebrate his retirement as a high school teacher. A fun 4th for sure. Home now, and sending a shout out to blog friends. Happy day everyone, whatever you did - hope it was nice.

They have a whole collection on their site right now - check it out! It's so dreamy and ruffly and fluffy. I could live in this stuff. I could also live in her amazing house that she has customized with fabric and paint and resplendently rusty and artful items. I bought her book recently - it's gorgeously lush with photography and her life story is very cool. Love, love, love Robin Brown and Magnolia Pearl!
