Just Goofin' Around and Coming "Back to Life"

E with moustache P with moustache

Just goofin' around--this is the way we ring in the new year at the Schilling Place! 

We discovered this musical gem too: "Back to Life," the new single from Esther Sparks and the Whiskey Remedy (friends of my friend in Colorado who did an amazing photo-shoot of the band!) While watching this music video, I remembered these funny little moustached faces from a couple of days ago. Watch it and you'll see why--the video is so fun and lighthearted; the song itself is bright and quietly powerful--full of hope to recover from loss and beat any and all odds in 2013!  Please share it if you love it!

And in case you were wondering, I have been painting and my sneak peeks on Fridays are coming back too. Here are a couple of teasers--just another broken heart, pieced back to life again. I don't this subject will ever grow tiresome to me.

    Dropped by because you won my weekly ATC this week. Send me your snail mail address and I'll send it off to you. I kind of like the idea of one of my ATCs flying off to Germany!
