The art pops off of the walls, the bold strokes catch your eye everywhere you turn. An aroma rises from the center of the room- a delicious mixture of minty mojitos, chocolate mousse, and Spanish paella. You hear the buzz of the crowd, getting more and more excited waiting for the loud burst of the auctioneers gavel to announce that they have won their favorite piece! The Baterbys Art Auction is always a treat for the senses.
It was a great success this Saturday, August 27th as the gallery boasted rare original works of Dali and Lenore Fini for exceptional prices. Not only were the prices of this consignment auction incredible, but so were the hilarious presenters! Every sale and “steal” ended with a “Woo-hoo!” and a sea of laughter.
Not only did the bidders get huge deals on the original paintings, and art prints themselves, but a percentage of the profits from this event went to charity, which I definitely admire, and nudged me towards making my second purchase!
The mojitos kept coming all night, and so did the paintings. I ended up walking away with two amazing pictures. And, much to my surprise, I also brought home a huge daisy print of Romero Britto as my prize form a raffle ticket win! It is already up in my room, and I can’t resist taking a peak every few moments at this whimsical piece!
Though the auction was geared towards a more adult crowd, I had an amazing time. And, I couldn’t be happier that I could walk away with pieces of beautiful art, the bold strokes now covering my walls. :)

What is International Fake Moustache Day?
International Fake Moustache Day is the premier cross-border, artificial, facial hair celebration.
International?Not yet. But my grandpappy told me to aim high.
Why February 3rd?
February 3rd approximates the winter Moustache Festival on the ancient druidic calendar. (Most druidic fake moustaches were made from apple boughs.)
Really?Um, no. But the “three” in February 3rd looks kinda like a sideways moustache.
Who runs internationalfakemoustacheday.org?
We are a collection of volunteer and professional fake moustache enthusiasts.
How long have you been doing this?
International Fake Moustache Day is in its third year.
What are your goals?
1. World Domination
2. Find employment which is both creatively and economically fulfilling.
3. Find someone who makes me laugh and fall in love with them.
4. Finish this shoddy website.
Is this a legal holiday?
Well, as of yet, it isn’t illegal.
Moustache or Mustache?
How do chicks feel about guys in fake moustaches?
Generally, chicks dig guys in fake moustaches.

This is a new segment of my blog that I have decided to proudly name DOLL OF THE DAY!
( This is where the applause comes in)
Today's doll of the day is Lavender. She is a little 8 inch doll who has a very funky and creative spirit about her. In fact, out of all her doll friends, she has got to be the most artistic one out of the whole bunch! Every day, she paints what she thinks is a truly thought out beautiful masterpiece. Well, I've got to hand it to you, Sometimes what she creates is almost an imitation as Pablo Picasso as a toddler! Or she might have the inspiration to make a "Jackson Pollock" of her own. This generally includes a lot of time and thoughtful consideration and closing her eyes while throwing paint on the canvas!
There was actually one day where i was going to the beach with my friends and i had accidentally left Lavender in the craft room while i was gone.
When I came back- let me put this simply- the room was turned inside out
backwards and upside down! Even though it was tough to clean it all up and even though i had no idea where all of my favorite craft things went, the absolute worst part was that she toll all of my fabrics an put them in an enormous pile right in the center of the room. This, she claimed was her "sculptural masterpiece that should never be touched or destroyed." That was great and everything, but i don't think that she quite understood that i needed those fabrics to make my bags for my shop on Etsy. It took me about a week to pry those fabrics from her! She literally ca mped out on the top o her sculpture to guard it!
But don't worry, all of her crazy shenanigans are mostly a thing of the past. So if you do choose to take her home with you and keep her, you shouldn't worry too much about her creative chaos.
CHECK IN AGAIN SOON TO SEE MORE OF DOLL OF THE DAY!
