New Feature ( aka stalking victim)

Tonight, it is my pleasure to introduce you to someone I have wanted you to meet for days (if you haven't already). I met Shelagh Duffet of Alice in Paris loves Art and Tea through the One World One Heart blogging event and immediately fell in love with her, her blog, and her work in my infamous stalker-ing ways. Without further ado, and with her permission, I want to show you just a smidge of her paintings and photography . . . (it was very, very difficult to choose just a few!)



It is hard to say if I like her photography best or her paintings. She is so very talented at both. Her Etsy sites are http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=5335555 and http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=5255904. But please go to her blog as well. She is a very gifted writer, one to challenge some of my other favorite thought-putter-downers. And, I have found we have some things in common, in my stalker investigation . . . I used to have the exact same reading glasses as she shows in one of her blog posts (I left them on the pop tart shelf at the grocery store sometime last spring - but I doubt if she buys pop tarts OR slim jims), we both have graying hair (unless she has recently gone to the dark side, literally), her bday was the 8th of January and mine was the 18th, both capricorns, both have teenage daughters, and both used to build forts and wander the woods and play in brooks and the moss. I have not figured out her age and she is prettier than I, but I find myself wondering if we are long lost sisters or cousins. I digress . . .

Back to her artwork . . . her paintings remind me of Madeline books. It may be the Paris reference, I don't know. But the color and boldness and clean crisp shapes make me feel like a sophisticated child in my sheer involvement when I look at her work. I just dive in and let my imagination soar, complete with warm cozy sensations and a smile on my face in utter contentment. So, please go give her a good stalkering for me!

Hooray! look at me:))) I'm twirling with glee:))Thanks so much for your kind words and fun description. Still grey, the colour has not all grown out yet. I want to see what my "real" colour is:) Still might go to the dark side but it's fun to have the choice and not feel a slave to the dye box.
Cheers, Shelagh

I loved when I entered and that wonderful music and your blog background is perfect. You did a wonderful job selecting just the right art for this post. I hope you stop by my OWOH giveaway and leave a comment.
So nice to meet you.

[b]Description[/b]

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also [url=http://twitter.com/jetlyca]q Buy Viagra Online[/url] you can find on our sites.
Generic [url=http://viagra.olistupa.ru]Viagra Super Active[/url] is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.

Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
