I've just been tagged by Loretta of Pomegranates and Paper to list 7 random things about myself.




Here goes...
(I may refer to this whimsical self-portrait which is almost finished....should I add a pear somewhere?)




1. I am a Libra with a Sagittarius moon sign ....supposedly this means I don't take life too seriously and am always ready for a good time.

2. Besides indigo my favorite colors are turquoise, sage green and pink.

3. My favorite potato chips are Cape Cod reduced fat...great tasting! Of course since potato chips are not a healthy food, I have to make up for that by eating LOTS of dark chocolate!


4. I'm not reading any more Jane Austen...in "Sense and Sensibility" , she writes a conversation where Mrs. Dashwood (the mother-in-law) is described as being too great a risk for leaving an annuity to as she might well live another 15 years...even though she is already "old" at 40! Reading these kinds of things, makes it hard to cling to my "Forever Young" delusion!

5. I am a child who was born on the Sabbath day...
Mondays child is fair of face,
Tuesdays child is full of grace,
Wednesdays child is full of woe,
Thursdays child has far to go,
Fridays child is loving and giving,
Saturdays child works hard for his living,
And the child that is born on the Sabbath day
Is bonny and blithe, and good and gay.
(Mondays child poem)
......and it pretty well fits except when I get depressed..(thank goodness for Sam-E tablets!)

6. I have a butterfly pasted on my forehead in the self portrait, because I am a strong follower of my intuition.

7. I adopted the blackbird motif from Alice Lynn Greenwood, a couple of posts back....but I still am reluctant to "fly"....not in airplanes...but reluctant to take risks!
I'll be back soon with the list I'm tagging...I'll let each tagged blog know!
TAGGING TIME!
1. ANY ONE who has a blog and wants to do this....list 7 random things about yourself. Then tag 7 more....
2. Maryam of My Marrakesh , beautiful lady in an exotic land!
3. Laurie of Rose Cottage..by the sea , lover of all things pink!
4. Julie Marie of Celtic Woman, the book maven!
5.Carmen of Strawberries and Champange a beautiful soul sharing her journey!
6.Caroline of Potato Prints , writing/sketching her blog in a new home!
7. All artists in our Art Doll Swap group...let's get those blogs going and share things about who we are!
Also....for some reason, Blogger is not putting the "comment" key on this post...so leave comments on yesterday's post...if this one doesn't appear!
Update: thanks to Kara...I was able to get the "comments" allowed back on here again!

Lila, thanks for telling me about coreopsis making a nice dye. I think I shall try to dye some yarn. Yellows make me happy.

Hi...I stopped by here yesterday and thought I'd left a comment...perhaps you havn't posted them yet and in that case I'll leave two.... Your self portrait is wonderful...love the butterfly symbolism. Great tag too!!!

Loretta said...

I love your painting! How fun to catch a glimpse of you through your self portrait. Your links led me on many an adventure.

Carmen said...

I enjoy your answers and laugh with number 5 and number 6 was my favorite, I do too follow my butterfly ;-)
Maybe this is part of my seven things but if one day I take this risk (because for me it is) I will get a tattoo, a butterfly tattoo in my lower back. As you can see, I am preparing my answers. Just give some time. LOL.

Great self portrait! I love the butterfly--both literally and the figurative meaning you've given it. But I would expect all these wonderful thing from a Libra born on Sunday. (Me, too, just years before you!)
