It's beautiful out today, sunshine and blue skies. The leaves are changing quickly to red, yellow and orange, a beautiful, artistic palette. And while today is beautiful several days ago we had such strong winds it's surprising the trees still have leaves! With the wind and rain I finally realized winter is fast approaching.
But I want to hold onto summer, I wander past my china cabinet full of flamingos, reminding me of summer days, the beach and of course that vintage style I love. Here's a few more vintage summer memories....

Finally finished this sparkly piece and added it to my shop, I love the opulent feel to it. I try to incorporate vintage jewelry in my art, which means I must go antiquing to find these wonderful pieces, oh darn it...shopping (hahaha, one of my favorite things to do!).
While I love making ATC's, altered tins, and shadow boxes, altered compacts are my favorite. Once I finish a piece I have a hard time letting it go....well most have landed in my shop except for my favorite.....Little Red Riding Hood.
