Full of Complex Carbohydrates and MicroNutrients

I am a novelty to many (and I'm fine with that).
I have a very silly sense of humor usually riddled with malapropisms (and I'm fine with that, too).
I ask too many questions of Life and I expect all the answers.
I trust people too easily when I shouldn't; however, I respect everyone regardless…unless they do something to make me think twice.
I don't cheat. I am tactful yet will give the truth up front (and never mean to hurt anyone's feelings with it).
I like to help the people who have helped me, and even those who have not.
I never forget... but sometimes I misplace things.
I never lose hope.
I am awesomely blessed for the people who have come into my life, and I am blessed for the people who have left because I realize I didn't need them anyway.
I honestly feel that laughter is the best medicine you can have.
I believe in being strong when everything else seems to be going wrong.
I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles. In other words, I'm human, and definitely not perfect.
But tomorrow is another day, and there's so much cheese to be had...

Beware, the Tattie Bogle!

"Alane upon the field she stood,
The Tattie-Bogle, tall an' prood.
But certie, she wis smairt an' braw,
A bonnie lass, tho' made o' straw..."

And so begins the old Scottish poem about the singing Tattie Bogle (Scarecrow), who was at first nice to the birds but soon learned to screech them away from the farmer's fields.

I had a lot of fun creating this autumn-inspired Tattie Scarecrow. He's made of overlapping pieces of cut wood, and handpainted with many layers of acrylics. It was befitting that a proper tartan bowtie adorn his collar, with a small patch of it on his hat, whereupon two sassy crows perch. Genuine straw makes Tattie's hair and eyebrows.

Tattie was my first venture in this style of folk art painting, and I look forward to creating many more folk-art pieces in the days and years to come.
