Movie Inspiration: You've Got Mail

       Nothing says autumn like "You've Got Mail." Like other pretty movies, I could watch it over and over again and NEVER tire. While I watch it, I dream of owning a shop (gallery) just like the one her tiny little book shop sits in. What a dream! Well, throughout the movie, there are references made to other movies, "Wizard of Oz" is one of those. The painting above is a tribute to that. The models were actually tiny, glittery Christmas ornaments.
         It's gotten to the point that I put the movie dubbed in Italian with Italian subtitles to practice the language, since I have it memorized in English. 
         I apologize for the bottom two photos; my camera has given up on me. Drats! I hope to have better photos soon and when I do, they will be posts on eBay for auction.

I bought chickens in March and by April, they were ready to be outside of the brooder I had built them. So, the coop started to go up. About three weeks (most of it during Spring break and then a couple of weekends following), half of a pinkie nail, and five hundred dollars later, my coop was finished and the chickens seemed to have made th…
