"Do you believe in fairies?...

...say quick that you believe. If you believe, clap your hands."
Today is the birthday of Sir J.M. Barrie (1860), the beloved Scottish author, famous for his writing of Peter Pan.
I had to include this quote because I really do believe in stuff like that: fairies and ghosts and life on other planets. I'm sure everybody remembers the famous fairy pictures from back in the early 1900s. The famous Cottingley photographs were taken by Elsie Wright who later explained that she hand-drew the fairy and then attached it to the tree with a hatpin...



Normally I don't really care for spiders (or any other insect for that matter), but this is just too good to keep to myself. French artist Louise Bourgeois is having an exhibit at the Hirshhorn Museum in Washington D.C. Unfortunately the exhibit only goes to the 17th of May. In my opinion some of her best work is her spider sculptures...









Now, I have decided to give you a glimpse of my past week through the outfits I have worn.
Tuesday was Cinco de Mayo, and in celebration school decided to throw a party complete with Mexican food, and I even got to help cook for it...





Wednesday started finals, ugh, but I graduate in less than a week (May 15), which is very exciting. Actually, on this day a friend made a comment about my shoes, asking if they were new. I had to inform him that I have been wearing these shoes all semester. Ah, life is funny sometimes...







Thursday I attended the annual Art Show at my college. One friend of mine actually one a 3rd place ribbon for one of her pencil drawings of gas pumps. The crazy thing though was that people came up to ask me where they could see my art work. I had to inform them that I am not in any art classes. I do like to paint occasionally, but I am certainly not near any true artistic talent. I love art and even plan to minor in Art History once I transfer, but I am content to be an English major. But people tell me I look like an artist because of how I dress...

Cute outfits! I love the color of the skirt in the first one.

I love the Cottingley pictures. I wish I could believe in those things, but my mind is too overly rational for that.
