New Finds

Josephine Wall

While wandering through blog land and waiting for my brain to wake up so I could start doing my homework, found an awesome picture on Nadia's blog by Josephine Wall. Of course, I had to check out the site and see all her paintings. She reminded me of a painting my mom once painted on the wall of my brother's bedroom of Elf Quest. Remember Elf Quest by Pini. If I find the picture we took, I'll post it.

Wall has done some amazing paintings like this one

and also has a "
Signs of the Zodiac" series.

My husband and son were both born in August which is Leo

July 23—August 22 Leo’s brightest star is Regulus, Latin for “little king,” which describes perfectly this sign’s approach to life. Leos are natural leaders and performers who expect the best from themselves and others. Like the sun, which governs this sign, Leos are warm-hearted, direct, and most comfortable being at the center of things. Luxury and comfort are considered necessities for a Leo, and are shared generously with friends. When their fiery temper is aroused, their “roar” can be deafening, but passes just as quickly with no lingering resentment. Proud and self-confident, Leos are excellent managers and entrepreneurs, and their energy and enthusiasm are a ray of sunshine to all. © Leanin’ Tree®

If I believed in the theory of reincarnation, then James definitely was a king in another life. The description fits him to a T.

I'm a November baby which makes me a Scorpio

October 24—November 22 At the heart of the constellation Scorpius, the red giant star Antares burns with a fiery intensity matched by astrological Scorpio’s passionate temperament. Ruled by Pluto, Greek God of the Netherworld, Scorpio is intimately connected with the extremes of life, with beginnings and endings, conception and lasting legacies. As the sign of purpose and success, the dedication and drive of Scorpio is unmatched. Of course, if a Scorpio’s anger is aroused, or she feels out of control and disordered, the sting of rebuke will be unmistakable! Scorpios thrive in pursuits that require intuition and deeper understanding, including medicine, spirituality, and philosophy. © Leanin’ Tree®

Yes, I know what my sign is but no I don't follow horoscopes and such. I think the paintings are neat and if it just happens that the descriptions match us completely, it is just a coincidence. Really!
