moleskine, pen & colored pencil

Dug up my journal and decided to sketch a bit, I forgot how good it feels to just play with pencils & paper - I need to do that more...

By the way, have you heard of Junk Gypsy? I discovered this Texas family owned business when we put down some roots here earlier this year. I love their rock meets country-western meets gypsy-goth style and attitude. Did I mention attitude? :> And yes, a Junk Gypsy is most definitely rambunctious, even when she's wearing her petticoat dress.

Do check them out and get the goods on everything from jewelry (some of its pricey) & tees to purses and pillows and don't forget to poke around in their vintage stash....

Thanks y'all for taking the time to visit. Have a great weekend!
