Tonight is the Blue Moon.  If you don’t know what a blue moon is, Google it.

The Blue Moon brings memories to me, sparks inspirations, and swirls up romance.

Listen to the first artists to record the beautiful song Blue Moon.

 

 

Wishing you a love of your own.

Buy It Friday is a nice addition to Auntie B’s blogging adventures. Not only does it give me the opportunity to show some of my fabulous products, it gives you the chance to buy those products directly from this site. Win-win!

If you don’t know who Christopher Walken is, you haven’t been paying attention.  As one of my favorite actors he’s taken parts involving dancing, comedy, and my favorite, the resident psycho.

 

One thing I imagine Christopher to embrace is a sense of humor, which is why I created these magnets.  A play on words or a pun (I can never remember the difference of the two), Chris is Walken on all sorts of things with these magnets.

 

 

I sell them individually in my Etsy shop, and now they’re also available as a set of seven for a discounted price, in the shop and here on this page.  If you’re a Walken fan, or know one, these magnets are just right.

 

 

Christopher Walken, you’re my hero and most definitely my inspiration.

 

The Walken Series ~ Magnets

Christopher Walken has been know to play some of the most psychotic and/or intense characters in movie history, which makes these magnets so great. This set is a collection of all the Walken magnets available in this shop (available separately), and by buying all seven you save over $20! Great gift for the Christopher Walken fan or anyone who loves a good pun. Laminated images will ensure easy cleaning (damp cloth).

Decades ago I’d played with Barbie dolls, not unlike any other girl of my generation.  Between me and Charlotte we had (at least) two Barbies, a Skipper, and a Francie.  Barbie was brunette, Francie was blonde with a flip hairdo, and Skipper was Barbie’s younger sister, a teen doll.  There were Barbies at Grandma’s house too, a red-haired Barbie (probably one of the originals) and also Midge, Barbie’s best friend.  We had no Ken dolls because, well, he was a boy and boys were icky to us.

The Barbie(s) of my era didn’t cause me to think I was less than perfect and didn’t project a desired body image upon me.  Barbie, Midge, Skipper, and Francie were dolls to play with.  They had no influence on my self-esteem.  Barbie (and her cohorts) was beautiful and glamorous and that was that.  I never once thought I should have a figure like Barbie, nor her luxurious hair and sky-blue eyes.  I guess back then kids knew toys were toys and not social statements.

 

Barbie has evolved over the decades, as has her doting boyfriend Ken.  (Or are they married by now?  I haven’t kept track.)  I have a soft spot for the originals and those of my day.

Yesterday’s Wordless Wednesday might have seemed like a piece of weirdness.  Some shop front?  What is this place?  Why does Auntie B include this image with her ever-famous photos of glory on her blog?

I know, you have questions galore, but I only have one answer for you, one that comes in story form.

A couple of years ago I was approached by a very skilled artisan asking if I’d like to show my candles at the artZ Gallery in Amery, Wisconsin.  I thought she was joking.  Me?  My candles in a fine arts gallery?  I thought I’d lose my breath for laughing so hard, but then I realized she was serious.

I’ve participated in many craft/art shows in the Wisconsin county of Polk over several years and have come to know a lot of the local artists and crafters in that area.    The artZ Gallery is “a group of 17 regional artists working together to make (the gallery) a place to take pride in and professionally share our talents. The gallery is a gathering place for viewing quality artwork of members and over 40 guest artists, with meaningful communication, the meeting of artists, sharing ideas, and participating in classes.”

Once I got my head around the fact that I was recognizable in the area because of participating in several local festivals and fairs I felt honored to have my candles shown and sold among the fine pieces of art displayed at the gallery.

This week Husby and I took a road trip to Amery to refresh and revive the Auntie B’s Wax inventory at the artZ Gallery.  We brought in lunch and enjoyed it with our friend Loretta, the artist working at the gallery that day.  Spending time in the gallery, talking with Loretta who I’ve known for at least a decade through shows and festivals, and seeing the great works of art on display just made me feel all warm inside.  “I’m a part of this,” I said to myself.  That thought makes me smile.  Always.

Loretta’s yarn. “She spins, weaves, felts, knits and crochets natural fibers to create functional and beautiful pieces to use and enjoy.” I’ve commissioned Loretta to make things for me and let me tell you, they’re glorious! Photo credit: Randy Lee for artZ Gallery

 

That’s why I posted that particular Wordless Wednesday this week.
