Water your EGGPLANT!


 Watering the flowers in this funky zip up dress

 I camped out in my backyard on Sat night. (I found this Frida bag for $1.99)

Close up of funky dress!


 *Weird Face*

 Here is our eggplant (So cute)

*Hibiscus love*

 Frida bag close-up
 The MOST AMAZING...... shadow box shell art picture. Found at the Salvation Army for $20
When I seen it on the wall I said.... "OMG that was made for me" It's quite a big pic, about 3 feet long.
 
 *Shrimp Love*
(If you know what this says PLEASE TELL ME)
UPDATE: I was told in the comment section by Helen that the pictures title says: "Waiting for guests to come."
Thank you Helen

(I took a better picture of the signature in case someone can let me know the artists name. The previous two pictures were taken on a bit of a slant and were hard to make out.)
 
 
 Thanks in advance

  1. Wowee! Some really good stuff. Your dress is very cute. Kind of an I-can-wear-this-every-day-dress. Right? And I didn't know that was a cat till you lit it up. The shrimp shell art is PERFECT for you. I'll bet that's what it says on it. Perfect for Mel. And your eggplant is adorable. I have never ever said that to anyone before.

    1. *lol* Adorable eggplants!
      I think it could be a wear everyday dress. It's perfect for watering the plants, beach, quick shopping trip, flea market & road trip. YES it's a good dress.
      SHRIMPS HANGING ON MY WALL!

  2. That shrimp art is totally awesome! Love the brilliance of the colors. The illumination is also very cool.

    My tomatoes and chile peppers are starting to grow I just hope they reach maturity before it gets too cool.

    1. I am just so glad I got that shrimp picture. There was another picture there too. It was of a pagoda and tree's and stuff. I would have liked to buy that one also but they wanted $40 for it. I suppose they thought it would take a special person to want to stare at giant shrimp, fish and a crab. *HAAAAAAH* I am sure they didn't think the pic would sell so fast. *laugh*

    1. That is the first eggplant we have ever tried planting.
      It's fun to try something different every now and then.

    1. Camping in the backyard is alot simpler than going on a actual camping trip cause you don't have to pack up a bunch of stuff. *hehehe* (Oh and you can have a flush toilet too)
      Although I do like REAL camping adventures. But with our work schedule it wasn't able to happen this year.

  6. Love your dress and the Frida bag and all your other cool finds, that picture really was made for you, it's so perfect! The camping out in the garden looks fun, I keep nagging my hubby to take us camping but I think it'll have to be the garden for us too. Good to see you back! xx

    1. The garden camping is better than no camping. Set a fire pit up in your garden and roast some marshmallows.
      =D

    1. OUTRAGEOUS SHRIMPS!!!
      I am a bit surprised Mr. Coco did not say no to the picture. It was close.... but then he decided he liked it.
      He appreciates things from other countries like I do. (Thank Goodness!) Now I am wishing I had bought the other that was there with the picture of the Pagoda.

  8. The title of your shrimp art is "waiting for guests to come". It's in Chinese, although I can't quite tell the name of the artist...

    1. Thank you very much Helen! I thought it would take alot longer to have someone tell me what it says. I appreciate your comment.
      I took a closeup of the signature to see if someone is able to tell me what it says. The previous pics were taken on a bit of a slant so they weren't the best.

  11. Hey, Mrs C, it's good to see you!
    Super funky dress, cool Frida bag, and yay, you grew an aubergine, how cool is that?
    Your shrimp picture is bonkers, you know that, don't you?! But it's got a brilliant title, thanks to Helen for the translation. Love those candlesticks, and the illuminated cat is almost as crazy as the shrimp!

    1. I almost can't believe such a piece of art that's 3 feet long and has shrimps and a crab in it EVEN exists .... And of all ppl to find it.
      I do have a memory of a childhood Chinese place we used to visit having pics a lot like this one on their walls. I used to admire them every visit! Hehehe
