  1. Thank you…the calico cat would work well interpreted in a quilt wall hanging…he’s cute.

  2. Thank you for this post! I have seen a couple of his pieces before but didn’t have a clue who the artist was. I really love his work.

  3. Wow. Thanks for the education. Like Cindy I’ve seen a couple of those illustrations before. The only thing I hate about your blog is that I’ve paged back and read the whole thing and I need more. I found you through a Google search of “garage interior” a long time ago. I was thrilled at the garage update a couple of days ago. I almost commented then about the floor. I had good results with Rustoleum Garage Epoxy. I have the gray with blue flecks. You can get other fleck colors on eBay. I put it down shortly after Hurricane Irene forced me to power wash the garage floor. (Almost two years ago). I was going to chide you for not featuring that wonderful work bench you rescued from the trash. I don’t subscribe to any other blog either so you must realize I hold you in high esteem. Oh wait…Apartment Therapy too. One other.

    • First of all, We LOVE to hear from readers…..most are so silent. I check the stats, so we know people are visiting, but we don’t know anything about them.
      We are going to paint the garage floor, but hadn’t thought of flecks ’till you mentioned them. Love the idea of grey with blue. Have to wash off the oil first.
      (Irene had us stuck on St Croix btw…worst vacation ever)
      Addicted to Apartment Therapy too, they have featured us a couple of times in the past year.
      We are just thrilled that you follow us so closely.
      I promise to keep writing as long as you keep reading.
      (ohh and glad that you like Charley Harper, he was a great guy)

  4. I’m old enough to remember when this look was IN. I never would have guessed that I would love it so much now! Thanks for introducing us to this artistic genius!

    • Dianna, I think his style is pretty timeless. Glad that you like him, I’m addicted to his children’s books….quite magical they are

  5. I love these posts!

    We have a framing place here that carries a lot of these. I LOVE the Pelican! I should grab one before pelicans become the new owls.

    • LOLOLOL, or octopui, octopus? What ever they are called, I see them everywhere now.
      I like the pellican too, with all the beach goers in the background
