I Love Saturday!

Why?  you ask. 
Saturday morning I sit and drink coffee as long as I want. 
I listen to NPR for as long or as little as I want.
I go out for as long as I want.
I play music as loud as I want (if my neighbors are out)
I paint pictures of anything I want.
I read blogs as much as I want. 
Finally, I anticipate the cocktail hour 
with the same enthusiasm I have for it everyday ;)

Here are my brand new pillow covers! 
Now available in my Society 6 Shop AllynHoward

You can choose between several sizes of covers
that come with or without the actual pillow insert.

I'm happy with these, so I hope a few will end up in 
a cozy cute child's room or nursery.

I've also added some more greeting cards.

These are 5x7 cards sold in sets of  3, 5 or 10.

Plus, please peruse the plethora of Art Prints available in my shop!
* Hurry * FREE SHIPPING * through tomorrow, Sunday *
Sept 22nd until Midnight Pacific Time :)

Best part about this Saturday is that my bathroom floor can't be
ripped up ((rotted wood, moldy tiles and all)) and replaced, until tomorrow! 
As Mark Twain once said -
"Never put off till tomorrow what may be done day after tomorrow just as well."
If it were up to me, it would definitely be done day after the day after after that day after
and so on, but I know that's no good either.
I love Sunday, so I hope this doesn't ruin it.
Thanks for stopping by.
Have a lovely day! xo, A

Back to School in Brooklyn

"I'm King of the World!"

These guys are on their way back to PS58 here in Carroll Gardens.
You're probably surprised by how many animals attend school,
but that's Brooklyn for you ;)

Oops, there goes lunch. Good thing it's all wrapped up,
most of it at least.

:: Full Painting ::

You looking at me?

Pizza Louie and Betty Cinna-bun wave good-bye and wish them luck!

"I hope it's not too hard."
This is my seasonal painting on the front door of
If I Were A Toy store, on the corner of Court and Carroll Street.
I hope the kids have a terrific start back, this week for some
and next week in my neighborhood.
Hope you enjoyed your Labor Day weekend!
Thanks for stopping by.
xo, A
