Around the House



The end of October and my hydranga still looked good until.......Jack Frost paid a visit!

Around the House


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....

In the Studio

Just finished..."Dance the Night Away"


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.

Welcome

Hello and welcome, enjoy (or laugh) at my first efforts setting up my blog page. Oh my goodness some things have been easy and some hard to figure out! For those who have more experience, if you have any suggestions I'd appreciate the help. My daughter stopped in today and figured out the Flickr & Etsy badges for me, it didn't take her long, thanks Emily! I had one important thing figured out though, my favorite places to visit....your pages...thanks for the eye candy and inspiration, if it wasn't for you I wouldn't even attempt this.
