Sister always wanted to start a garlic growing business...glad to see there are festivals for garlic. Being Italian...wouldn't know where to begin cooking without garlic. Sweet Lucy tattoo...think it's a nice gesture to honor someone with a tattoo...these post are tempting me a bit more each week to consider getting one....Oh oh...!! Thanks for the pocket full of posies.
Hope your week is off to a great start. Fall is really making it's moves on us...and I'm captivated by it's beauty right now. Hope Ohio is offering you the same. xo

These are nice tats and look rather old school. I really don't care much for the new stuff--too busy and too many colors, but that's just me.

You've given me new appreciation for tatoos, dear mouse. I love the expression on the young woman in the background too!

Cleveland has a garlic festival? How peculiar! (Though I love garlic.)

Somehow I don't think my grandmother would feel honored if I got a tattoo of her on my arm. But that says more about my grandmother than about tattoos.
