The Art of Blarney

Well, this is a blog about art, right? Art comes in many different forms, right?
So why shouldn't Blarney be considered an art form? Do you even know what Blarney is? Well, I can tell you one thing...it ain't Baloney!!!!
The family line on my Dad's side, originated from Ireland. From there they went into Scotland and found their way to the East Coast of America. Some dispersed to the Ohio Valley and others into the Tennessee Valley. My Dad was born in Florida. During all of this travelling time, the art of Blarney seemed to stay with them all. These people could sing a lyrical tale about anything half-truthed!

(For more information on Blarney and the likes!)
How appropriate is it that I hang this in my house? For the sake of family, ya know. Not that I'm proficient in Blarney by any means (major use of sarcasm here!)
It's been a busy week. Busy is good but can sometimes be stressful. The fact that I'm thinking March instead of February now is making the calendar move that much faster.
I am planning something big for my next post. No, I mean big...ya know, BIG!!!! As in about 4 feet tall, big. I'm approaching a following of 100 and that, in itself, is BIG so it deserves something BIG.
I'll give you a peek next week.
You've all been so wonderful to advertise for me. I appreciate those of you who share my photos and my name in a good way. Bless you for being so supportive.

It's because o' blarney that I tend to skip right over Valentines' Day and go straight to St. Patrick! I could have a sign like that posted all year 'round!
