Is it Monday already?

Well that was one fast weekend! Hope you all had a good one. On Saturday, Melissa Langer and I spent the afternoon together in Boulder. We had lots of great art talk and fun meandering around. We went to our favorite paper store and found some very cool goodies...although we had to talk each other down from spending WAY too much moolah. My credit card thanks you, Melissa!

So have you taken the "What Celebrity Is Your Dog" Quiz yet by Dogster.com? Well Maisie and Melissa's Pug, Emmitt took it. Apparently, Maisie is Madonna...and Emmitt is George Clooney. I can sort of see the resemblance, can't you?


And on another note, you probably remember when I recently posted about Leslie Moore and her beautiful animal drawings? Well Leslie has a new blog now...so please go visit her and welcome her to blogland! Below is another one of Leslie's drawings that reminds me of Maisie. Really lovely work, Leslie!
"Reese" by Leslie Moore

Thanks for the intro to your blog group, Linda. I'll look forward to hearing from your friends and visiting their blogs, too. Reese really does look like Maisie, doesn't she? And Maisie is a dead ringer for Madonna!

Guess who Emmett is? Will Ferrell! Very apropos, don't you think?

My dog, Otis, is Mick Jagger. I'm still laughing. Otis does think he's a rock star. Thanks for the quiz!

I love this post. Well, first, yes the weekend went by in a blink of an eye. But, Monday is almost over now. Whoo hoo!

I think the pug definitely looks like George! Here are mine: I know you remember Miss Chloe, my beloved Bichon. I used to think she looked like Betty White from the Golden Girls. And I had a friend who would call her Larry Tate from Bewithed. It must have been her "do". I think Albie looks like George Washinton. Ha ha... ya gotta love it!

Happy week to you, Linda.

Lindy Loo as Angelina Jolie?? GACK! I think Maisie made out much better!

Sandy said...

Beautiful drawing by Leslie. I love the idea of what Celebrity is your dog...
I only have a bird...and I need to now think of what celebrity she would be...

Looking forward to more of your art and I'll check out her blog.

Maisie as Madonna is wonderful. Lytton is supposed to be Al Gore - I can see the resemblance a bit, although I doubt Al Gore would be quite so attentive to telephone poles and mailboxes as Lytton is.

The paper store sent me off to look at their rubber stamps and journals...it reminded me of a store a few blocks away from here. I do a stern talking-to-myself every time I stop in ...

Sorry for not being very much present - had fibroid surgery and the recovery is maddening slow. I want to be out in my garden!!

I just checked to see who Ollie would be if he were a star... He would be Will Smith... and yes, he doesn kind of favor Will... lol...

Maisie as Madonna -- I love it! Express yourself, Maisie!

Susan Tuttle said...

Oooo, paper stores! Now that is a weakness of mine too.
