One World One Heart 2011

31 Jan

Welcome to my blog.

See the winner here.

Today’s Post is part of the One World One Heart link up by Lisa at

A Whimsical Bohemian


This is me, often in the garden. I’ve planted over 40 trees in my yard.

A Japanophile, I looked like this for one hour last October.

A rare photo – who knew the house came with a kitchen? This joke comes from


I live in Hawaii and I can be found here.

Crocheting and knitting are some of my addictions.

Art is another addiction. To thank you for stopping by, one lucky winner will receive a drawing from a favorite photo of theirs.

Like this to


Or this.The winner will be randomly drawn and announced on February 17, using a random generator. This is open to all active bloggers worldwide. Anyone who leaves a comment and has a blog will be entered. Be sure I have your e-mail to contact you if you win this prize and so I can visit your blog.

The winner will e-mail me a high resolution photo for a pencil drawing, in my line drawing style. The portrait will be drawn digitally and free-hand.
Your portrait will be e-mailed to you as a JPG  file so you can print as many as you like at home on your printer. Print it on business cards, stationery or as a print for framing.

I love to barter, if any of you who don’t win, want a portrait.

Have a wonderful time visiting the other blogs. XD

    Oh, what kind of tree is that you’re standing next to? Is it a mango tree? I’m actually quite impressed that you’ve planted so many trees in your yard. I don’t have a green thumb and everything I attempt to grow tends to die. It’s probably why I’m fascinated by what other people grow in their own homes 🙂

    Have I ever mentioned that you look adorable in that geisha outfit from your trip?

    I am so jealous that you live in Paradise. I visited your beautiful state once. I always say I have to go back and enjoy myself one of these days. A week before we were set to leave, my dad died unexpectedly. My mom insisted we go on our trip anyway. We were in Maui. I love to hike, so I spent most of my time, hiking up hills and waterfalls and just walking and crying. If there’s a place to grieve, beautiful Hawaii is the perfect place.

    And I know I’ve told you before, I love your geisha getup. Those flowers in your hair are just beautiful.

    An amazing post and such a wonderful giveaway. A woman after my own heart re the kitchen comment – as you may have noticed on my blog sidebar I have a caption saying I only have a kitchen because it came with the house. If I am lucky enough to win this amazing prize could we arrange details over FB only I’m having problems with my e-mail.

    Hi I’m Ducky Doo the ginger tabby cat. I’m sitting on my human’s lap at the moment. She’s been doing most of the posts in my name in this event, and promised me my favorite treat if I win her something, but this is something I can actually use.
    So the reason I ask is, if my name were picked, could you draw me?
