Fetching Fannies

I don't want to offend anyone


Please don't be mad if you don't appreciate the image to follow. (Nakedness in art)

While enjoying a beautiful day browsing the Springfield Antique Extravaganza with my BFF, I came upon this fantastic print!I began to laugh, then I stopped to appreciate it and laughed some more.
It made me feel so good about myself. I wanted so much to purchase it and put it in my bath room.
Ladies, someone, somewhere, someplace in time a man appreciated a more full figure! Being 50 isn't bad. I love how I feel about where I am in life now and I am having lots of fun so what if my body looks just like this naked. Someone, somewhere, some place in time thought I was beautiful and painted me!


  1. Something I heard on Dr Oz and I've asked a few men and they agree...they really don't care abt cellulite....and if they do oh well....I agree over 50 is the best...

  2. Well I now see my body is pretty normal! thank you!


  3. Thank you I really needed this today. I love it.

  4. it definitely belongs somewhere in your house! we need to go back! it was a great day!

  5. This is beautiful and not offensive at all. In fact, the painting is exquisite. Embrace your figure, I do. Even men succumb to gravity.

  6. I love this. You crack me up and remind me to love all kinds of beauty. Thank you.

  7. Great painting, the classicists were known for their love of women with fuller figures. For instance, Helen of Troy, famed as the most beautiful woman in history, was adored for her curves and her fiery, red hair.

  8. Hi Sherri!
    I love the painting!
    I personally love having curves.
    My dad said that unless you are curvy, you aren't a real woman, LOL!
    I wanted to pop by and tell you hi and give you a big South Carolina WELCOME to my home!
    Thank you for being my new friend, I need all I can get now-a-days :) and I got all your entries for the birdcage giveaway!
    Hope to see you around!
    Blessings to you as you make your home!

  9. Beautiful!

    BTW, I have an award for you in my blog ☺☺

  10. I adore this picture, but don't remember posing for it.
