So it shocked more than a few people when I broke out a LBD complete with high heels and hosiery to wear to a concert with Gilbert, Jesse Cook at the Del Webb Center in Wickenburg Saturday night. I also had some jeweler friends, Linda Bortone and elizabeth Hake (little "e"), make sure I was properly accessorized. [NB: You can meet them at the Celebration of Fine Art through March 27].
I guess I can clean up good, as one friend put so eloquently. And it was an important event as the music is the soundtrack for our love affair, this our valentine to each other.
We're also quite amused that a Canadian born in Paris plays Spanish flamenco, right, eh?
And if you think it's boring, try this out. (yes, you can hear the pots and pans--they really do play with them!)
It should be no surprise, then, that I wear Birkies for slippers. Most of the year it's pretty warm here (Finally, it's going to be 80 today! Woohoo!), so fuzzy slippers don't quite do it for me. Although I keep trying to make a pair just because I've kept the instructions for forever.

Wearing them right this minute!

So that takes care of the inchie challenge for the day, though I really thought I'd try to draw Cinderella's slippers as I felt like a princess on Saturday night. Then there's our household joke, "someday my prints will come." See, we're photographers in real life. Prince, prints...get it?Yeah. Right.
That mutilation of the English language (and I guess the fuzzy slippers) segues to "sweater," the twinchie this week.
Composed of elements for clothing in a crochet magazine (with apologies to Huey Lewis):
I also like my Zentangle on the non-representational side (that's the idea, right?) rather than all the hearts that are popping up this week.
Not that there's anything wrong with that! (With apologies to Seinfeld).
So, for the Diva's heart-focused challenge this week, you'll find a heart as string buried underneath all the patterns.

Nymph, Cadent, Bales, Lanie, Flux, Tipple
And, yes, I can do hearts! Have a whole week full of love, heart and emotion! Do the tangle tango! Or a rousing rumba!
