"Delight yourself..." 

"The Bluebird"
The bluebird carries the sky on his back.
Vintage fragment of lace and fabric scraps,
strands of yarn and cedar strips
come together in a way that brings

Two new creations ready for the shop.
But I do find it a bit difficult to part with them 
for they bring a smile to my soul. 
After all they are a part of me.

What shop?

Mardi Gras mask makeovers

 My guy is a techno geek so I
made his to have the
appearance of a circuit board. 
(he wanted to know why his 
has no feathers oops...
plug the glue gun back in) 
Mine took on a life of it's own as it went together. I knew I wanted the feel of my artwork and of course some leopard touches, so as I dug around in boxes and drawers in my studio for just the right pieces, it became a mask with two personalities.
 From the right one can see my 
wild shabby side but
if you came up on my left...
it's all about feathers. An ostrich plume or two and several peacocks feathers on a cluster of darker blue short ones.
So as we head off to the masked ball we are sure of one thing...we'll not be running into another couple with the same headdress.

plain mask   .50
embellishments    1.00
finished master pieces    priceless

off to make merry

These would be cute on a 
coffee table for a little
whims fun.

A Good Thing

 Velvet pumpkins...
a good thing.

 Chair covers...
a very good thing.

 A place to reflect on blessings...
a necessary thing.

 I pray for those in need of peace.
For those in need of a place.
I would encourage you to
enjoy those seated around the
be they family or friends...

it's a good thing.

Busiest place in town

 As families gather
 around the kitchen for this
Thanksgiving and Christmas season,
 I pray for renewal of spirit,
 renewal of relationships,
 renewal of all that makes 
a family the
cornerstone of a society.
God Bless us all!

 Tickled pink after a wonderful rain
and seems I'm not the only one.
She's a bit shy
Miss Tiger Swallowtail,
didn't want to give me 
a good shot.

Hope your Monday is off to a flying start!
