Wouldja Wanna Ouija...

Wouldja Wanna Ouija Board? I did!

just like the one i found!
I was thrilled when I came across one today on my Thrifty Thursday trek! No, I don't believe in them, but the artwork is awesome! The box gave no indication that the board inside would be in such great shape, not an antique board, but definitely a classic no matter what!

Of course, curiosity always gets this Cat going, so off I went to Google: and, Lo and behold, what to my mystified eyes did appear? THE MUSEUM OF TALKING BOARDS! Who would have thought you could visit a virtual museum for Ouija boards...fascinating trivia, a gallery of boards from 1891 until the present, FAQ's (had any burning questions about Ouija boards, lately?), history, scientific theories and, of course, spooky stories! One of my favorite things was a feature on the main page: you move a planchette around with your cursor! 

You absolutely have to pay a visit for yourself, it is well worth your time and I won't be "board"! 

Check out some of my other "mystifying" finds:

Happy Thrifty Thursday,

My Funny Valentine

My funny Valentine,
sweet comic Valentine,
You make me smile with my heart.
Your looks are laughable, unphotographable,
Yet, you're my favorite work of art...

Whether you love the way Ella sings it or Frank's version- it's a classic! And although Valentine's is full of romance, it should make you smile, too! 

So here are my funny Valentines, my favorite works of art...



Happy Valentine's Day!

You Can "Take It Easy"- with Art from Veer!

It's funny that the illustrations I used for my new header, twitter badge and for my shops on Etsy and Artfire, came from an artist on Veer called "TAKEITEASY ART"! I had decided to do just that- make it easier to design my new look by purchasing what I wanted. I love a challenge but I also fell in love with this artists' work! Since I believe in 'paying it forward', I thought I'd share my not-so-secret secret. And I know you'll love me for letting you know you can get 10 free credits when you open your new account. I had already spent mine on my other shop banner but I loved the service and went back for more.

So, anyway, for a just a few dollars, I got instant gratification! Well, maybe not so instant... I still had to fight the urge to throw my computer against a wall when I did the layout work! I'm so NOT a web designer. But I love the result and it turned out to be just what I wanted: Colorful, chic, lovely, and~ totally ME!

(Well, me and TAKEITEASY ART!)
