If you are a person who lives in my house, then you'd know that They Might Be Giants is my new favorite thing. No one can escape it.
t brake fluid in. Immediately after, the master cylinder went and he lost his brakes, almost getting killed again. They had put the wrong brake fluid in. We have had to put $1500 into this car within 3 months. The guy at BNM laughed at my husband on the phone, and won't take any responsibility for their expensive mistake, and endangering our lives. I have two children and they could have been in the car, either time or both times that the machine failed in spectacular fashion.
I am warning anyone in western Pennsylvania and eastern Ohio, anyone far and wide, and anywhere this blog goes, not to give any business to BNM Auto Sales, New Castle, Pa. I hope they get shut down very soon, and stop selling deadly dangerous cars. These are very bad business men and very poor human beings.

Painting inspired by several rituals of Dumb Cake or Dreaming Bread. A ritually made confection, sometimes made without speaking, by three young maidens who each take a piece to bed, believing it will lead them to dreams of their true love. It is sometimes said that a slice of wedding cake under the pillow will lead to a dream vision of the same subject. I was also thinking of the roof angels carved into Blythburgh Cathedral of the Marshes when I sketched this piece. Original acrylic painting on paper 9" x 12". Signed on back, so you can hang it whichever way you choose. The Dreaming Cake at My Good Babushka.

A little embroidery today. And below are two pictures of a mural in progress. I intend it to be a forest scene, but it's only just underway. It does make one's arm tired after one is used to painting small paintings.
Below is a teapot embroidery. I somehow missed taking pictures of this one in progress. So below this is the picture of the finished ornament/ sachet. It has a muslin envelope sewn into the back, and extra pouch, for holding a note perhaps, or some cinnamon sticks and cloves, to make a nice, naturally scented sachet.
