Pre-lated birthday lunch, old shoes and new art

Today's the only day Handsome Son is free to come and serve us lunch for my upcoming birthday, very early this year, and he refers to it as pre-lated, opposite of belated!


Table with puzzle in progress 


Cloths thrown over puzzle pieces, table ready for lunch, mystery menu.



Remember a while back I fancied making myself some paleolithic leather shoes, but my leather budget wasn't up to it? Here's a more modern pair, just window shopping in the museum here.

And today there's some art I thought you'd like, including a shot of the artist's hand at work





Happy day everyone, rain today but it's okay, happy lunch and maybe some help bringing out decorations for Christmas, which this year will feature art dolls, all in one place, first time. They may get rowdy.

  2. Those shoes! I wonder who the first person (woman) was to look at footwear which had to be practical to serve its purpose and thought, "Hmmm...what if I did a little of this and a little of that to make them more fancy." And oh, how amazed all of her community must have been to see the beginnings of style in shoes! And immediately began to gussy up their own.
    Same with clothing, of course. Humans are amazing in some regards!
    Happy pre-lated birthday!

  3. I dabbled in pen and ink drawings for awhile. Then I started my etched glass business and that style translated perfectly into the artwork for etched glass.

    Happy pre-lated birthday.

    1. Yes, fine line on paper or glass, similar appeal and probably skills.

    1. Well, the puzzle pieces won't get turned over, after the trouble I took to put the pieces right way up. Thank you for the good wishes.

    1. That's the plan. Miserable weather, so this is a good plan.

  7. Happy pre-lated birthday. That fine line drawing very detailed but the panel of 6 is almost overloaded - too much to try and take in.
