This quilt came up for auction last month and I'm just getting around to taking it's picture. I thought is was too funny and had to bid on it. It's a crib size quilt in very good condition. Since the pups don't look like Annie, my hubby said I should sell it off. I think it would make a very fun and quirky bed cover. Speaking of quirky, I'm looking for source for "buzz buttons" blossoms. It's a flower bud that helps enhance and cleanse your palate when you eat. I guess it's sort of like Viagra for foodies. It's something one of the chefs would like to have for the guests at the Sake San Jose premium night. The local San Jose crop will not be ready in time for the event. So if you know of anyone who has a stash, let me know. Yes, it's legal to grow and eat. I plan to plant some in my garden this year.
Flat Fish Paper Arts was born many years ago when blogging first started. My family did a lot of camping and diving along the California coast. California halibut are huge fish that start out as any normal fish. As they age, one eye will start to move to the other side and the halibut will become flat so it can lay on the bottom of the ocean with both eyes facing up.
I always like the idea that we all start out the same but life experiences slowly changes us. In my case, my creative talents went the way of paper arts. Flatfish are always looking up when they mature and as with any artist, we see inspiration in everything around us - always looking up.

Years ago a local dive shop had a photo of a diver who caught a halibut so big he had to throw it over his jeep to take the picture. Our little spoof with our daughter sitting in her toy jeep with dad's halibut on the hood. 1987
