~ the CROW Costume Contest... . .

with an October window to install...
in between the fall Tarts...
i chose a few crows to line up in the window for a bit of drama...
painted on my favorite crepe paper for the backdrop...
Well... .

of course, it started out  quite innocently with a rather 'plain' crow... and just thinking that they needed a little something so the first one got a simple fabric twist adornment and then the black & white papers and the scissors
and the little pins starting finding their way to the design table...
they had such a natural stance, such grace, such presence... .
( and such wisdom, that of course,
they would never tell.... ) ~ with all of them just milling about in their little outfits... i just had to give them numbers for a bit of a costume parade of sorts ... and the costume contest was born. ~ so... .   .  here now are the entries for the " C R O W
C O S T U M E   C O N T E S T " (( you can vote for your favorite candidate here at my ' julie diane artis…

~ hold still, hold still..... thank you.......

so it's time again  for an  October window... .   . (, excuse me?)
with the first and probably last annual... .

and yes,  i did get a lot of attitude and ' looks ' from the group....
('re kidding with the tutu, right?)
(....and, actually,  i thought we were all 'guys'?)
(.....i mean, we're crows. we just don't do this. do we?)
(....well, i do look kind-a cool.)
~ so,  more to come.
stay tuned..... .  .     .

~so it's flashback friday, huh.... . .

~funny, now that i finally can feel the delightful relief of a cooler season approaching.... .

i find this saved draft that i never posted.... .   .

*~ s p r i n g !  ... .   . yes ?

the spring flowers are once again being painted on the shoppe windows... .   .

and the uplifting colors are starting to re-appear while i start to remember the feel of that
 'perfect little sundress'... .   .
dancing against my bare legs.

truly one of the best parts of being female~*

" the dress "... .   .  has always been a very *  inspiring  * image for me. one even hangs on my calling card.

i've displayed them. drawn them. painted them.  sculpted them. .  . well as sewn them and of course,    worn them. to me... .  the quintessential personal adornment.

they're like... .  .  wearing candy......... .
(( hmmmmmmmm... . the imagination is running with that one~ sorry... ))
