What Day Is It???

Todays Fun Monday is being hosted by mjd at Return of the White Robin. Her Challenge: show us something that hangs on your wall that is fun, interesting, endearing, sentimental, or otherwise enticing. Select the picture of Uncle Horace, Grandma Galt's needlepoint, or little Susie's first fingerpainting to show the blogging community.

This is my favorite little treasure I picked up at a funky shop when I lived in Nashville.

I call her Anastasia. My Mom calls her "wino lady"... perhaps it's because of where I have her placed... thanks, Mom!

The first picture wasn't showing but I can see her on the second one and she's lovely- what is she made from it's difficult to tell from the photo.Had a chuckle over your mom's name for her!!

Wino Lady ! Love it and especially where she has been placed. Next time, take a pic of that wine collection so we can drool over it.

WOW! What beautiful decor you have! Makes me feel like two bit trash since I put up pictures of cheap pumps on the wall! Did you like Fur? I adore Arbus, but feel like the film takes away from Arbus as a strong independent photographer. Why do most films about great women artists want to suggest that they are mentally frail and that there was some brilliant man behind them nudging them on? (Never mind, don't answer that.)

chrisb... she's made from a plaster mold. She weighs a ton... and it's always a challenge trying to hang her!

You have selected the perfect spot to hang the Wino Anastasia. Your photo is teasing us with the colorful picture hanging through the arched doorway.

Purpleworms... I like your decor! And yes... I see the pattern in the films about women artists.

mjd... it's a print of "La Mariee" by Marc Chagall.

Wino Lady is very cool! She reminds me of a couple of wall hangings that I used to have - they were made of plaster, they had a lady surrounded by grapes, but they had a pocket for a plant or something. I had two of them and I moved them around for about 10 years before I finally gave up and sold them. I could never figure out what to put in the pockets. Your wino lady is much nicer.

Have a Fun Monday!

Jodi, your home looks as though it should be featured in the pages of a magazine. So elegant. I love the angle of your shot through the two archways. Anastasia is beautiful!

She looks like she could be featured on a bottle of wine...your mom cracks me up!

I agree with Songbird, you have a lovely home.

That is funny! Seems like the perfect spot for her. She is very lovely, and has a definite Southern charm about her.

Pretty snapshot of your arched doorways. I love your choice for sharing.

Wino Lady! Fabulous! I think she is in the completely obvious spot.

Wino Lady LOL Although, it's a perfect spot for her. Looks great there.

I like it, I can see why your mum would call her that, what with all the grapes and all.

Anastasia tell me who you are
Are you someone from another star
Anastasia are you what you seem
Do your sad eyes remember a dream

Why do you tremble and why do you sigh
Could you be lonely as lonely as I
Will you remember when summer has flown
Another world a world a world that is yours alone

Anastasia smile away the past
Anastasia spring is here at last
Beautiful stranger step down from your star
I only know I love you so whoever you are

Anastasia Anastasia
Beautiful stranger step down from your star
I only know I love you so whoever you are

just in case you hadn't heard that song.. I know the tune so just let me know and I'll hum it for you too

beautiful -just like QT said!
