Bargain of the day............

I got up early to go junking at the Stephens City Flea Market yesterday and this is my prize find of the day! An awesome antique metal tin with some old buttons, books of matches, threads and pins. OK, the best part is............. it was a dollar! One dollar! What a steel. I am beginning to cut out some bodies today for my next group of 17th Century dolls. The first group sold and are lounging about in a gorgeous 1920's home in Winston-Salem, NC. I hope everyone has a wonderful and safe holiday weekend.

Playing with Pink.................

So my daughter (who just turned 4) says to me today, "Mommy, why don't you ever play with pink?" Well, I took it to heart. Tonight I am playing with pink and everything I have that is "Ultra Femme." Yes I know, a far cry from my usual dark aesthetic. It is a great mental stretching exercise.

Happy Mother's Day

"M" is for the million things she gave me,

"O" means only that she's growing old,

"T" is for the tears she shed to save me,

"H" is for her heart of purest gold;

"E" is for her eyes, with love-light shining,

"R" means right, and right she'll always be,

Put them all together, they spell "MOTHER,"

A word that means the world to me.

--Howard Johnson (c. 1915)

Happy Mother's Day

Seeing Black and White.................

Yes, I am seeing black & white today. Argh! Nothing fun on the creative front today, just working on our mud room. Went with a nice boring white paint for the walls. I think these are the only white walls in our entire house! It will really keep it light and fresh looking. I am loving the old school black & white floor. Went down super easy. My soon to be 2 year old son learned the words "wet paint" today. Tee Hee
