All The Things I'm Missin', Good Vittles, Love & Kissin'

The pink chair is painted like a watermelon on the front. It's my favourite, and has the least amount of spiders.

This title is from the theme song to "Rawhide". Although I know it's possibly TOO quirky, I've been obsessed with the Blues Brothers soundtrack lately, including this song. It makes me smile every time I sing the word "vittles". Vittles has got to be one of the best words ever. Vittles, macadamia, splutter, onomatopoeia... okay, there are tons of awesome words. 

Happy Bunny and I always write our emails to each other with song lyrics for titles. It's been SO HARD not to make all my blog posts into song lyrics. Fun fact: I remember a LOT of song lyrics. I know more song lyrics than anyone I've ever met. Except maybe Happy Bunny. That's why we're BFF's.

I painted our cottage. I kind of saved this painting for February because painting the cottage is like pulling out the big guns for destroying the February blues. I was also kind of curious as to how I would deal with painting a house surrounded by trees. Now we know! It looks like this! I also got some really good splatters going. Splatters are so therapeutic. 

It's mental health awareness month. My good friend Ashley is devoting this month to a project called "Life Is Sweet, Even In February" on her blog. I really recommend reading through the posts if you have time. I found all of the guest posters to be really brave in their open discussion of mental health. The posts aren't always easy to read, but it's worth it.
