#1: A couple weeks ago, I ran across this highly action packed painting while working on a scrapbook project. It's so very realistic (at times) that I had to share it! (We all found it pretty funny here.) It's by Julien Dupre (French, 1851-1910). I love some of those French Realists--so it's quite thrilling to discover that Dupre did seemingly hundreds of paintings!
#2: I've been redoing some of my blog design...and having a lot of fun with my sidebar! What do you all think??
#3: The Emma Party is just around the corner! I'm so glad so many of you are hoping to participate--and a big thank you to all of you who have been putting up buttons (and posting!) about it! Feel free to keep bringing plenty of friends along... ;) (as Jack does have plenty of exciting Emma items in his box!) :) Oh! And a quick note. In case anyone was wondering: you don't have to have read Emma to participate. Having seen at least one of the films is completely adequate qualification to join in!

I hope you're all having a most lovely week!!
