happy day...

hey guys! thanks for the birthday wishes over the weekend! i had a lovely day and so appreciate you all thinking of me:):):) the boys made me super cute cards. jake's had a drawing of me with tons of laundry in my arms with a big X through it and it said "sit back and relax today!". LOVE that:) he's such a good artist:) henry gave me a ziploc bag filled with little balls from his room. he had it hidden under his play table with stuffed animals guarding it. is that the cutest thing ever!? that kid is soooo sweet. by the way, in regards to the picture below, the ONLY way we can get both boys to smile at the same time is if the person behind the camera tells some sort of gross joke involving potty stuff. sad but true. thought you should know the truth;)

they also made me a pink cake with polka dots of course. wish i could give you each a slice...it was quite deeeelicious:)

friday night chris and i actually got away by ourselves for once (yay!) and we went to see Son Volt at The Vic. it was such an awesome show. (well, besides the loudest guy in history randomly standing next to me. my right ear is still ringing from that guy screaming WOOOO the whole time. i'm not kidding...this guy was bizarre loud...like guiness book of world records loud.) we had some thai food for dinner, a couple drinks...really was a super fun night.

there we are! hahaha! and no...the loud guy is not the one that took this:)


so that's what we were up to. hope you guys had a great weekend too! i have tons of things to add to noodle and lou vintage this week. added these cute little strong men (pictured below) last night:) halloween art goodies will finally be hitting the regular shop toward the end of this week too...yipppeeee for halloween!! it's right around the corner!

finished up my little halloween boat gals & they will be hitting the shop today around lunch time:) it's a 4x4 little chunky canvas with looooads of texture.

happy tuesday! xox...jenn

Oh, what sweet little guys.....the cake is adorable!

I also really like the final image...what a great painting! It reminds me of 'The Owl and The Pussycat'-but a Halloween version.
