Claire Perry Art - Awesome "Upcycled" Folk Art

I want to introduce a wonderful fun folk artist to you all! Claire Perry Art - she makes the coolest folk art fish from found and recycled materials from the coastline of Maine. She is a true "Upcycle Artist". I have three of her fish above a doorway in my kitchen. They always make me smile. They are a great conversation pieces, family and guest love them. They are infectious with humor and wit. I have been blessed to befriend Claire and find her to be just as much fun as her fish! Please visit her site at and support the arts! Enjoy

An Incredible and Magical Tale

Just finished an incredible book. The 13th Tale by Diane Setterfield is a wonderful Goth-like mystery. I was so moved and enchanted by the story. The characters and scenery is so inspiring for my work. I love to be transported by magical literature.
