Invitation to Tea?

Welcome to my summer tea party - would you like a cup? Miss Ladybug will be happy to serve you and Miss Honeybee will be providing the sweets! And the fairies will be sprinkling their magic over the festivities... won't you join in the fun?

It's About Time

There are so many new things in progress right now but nothing that can be shared just yet. Until then, here is part of a new piece that I can share with you. The background is one I created at Margot's last Art Experience. It has been altered a bit & is now at the embellishment phase. With a "time" theme, I may pull this canvas off the stretcher bars & mount it to a more sturdy background, then mount up a battery operated clock mechanism. An art piece that talks about time should keep it as well, don't you think?

Happy Mothers Day

Here's to mothers everywhere! My mother has always been a source of inspiration & comfort. She is my cheering section as well as the voice of reason...whether I agree or not! We laugh together & cry together - sometimes at the same time.

My husband occasionally complains that I am just like my mother... and I can think of no better compliment!

I love you, Mom

Spring Fling Part Two

Penny & I created two separate tables for Spring Fling - yes we are crazy!!! Here are photos of our second table. This table was a lot of fun to put together - we each had elements to provide for the bags. Penny's sewing skills rock!!
The contents of the make-up bag are not in the photo. There was a small round mirror & beautiful hand made earrings by Margot's niece, Heather, & her friend, Amanda. Heather & Amanda's work can be found on Margot's website (see sidebar for address). They make lovely jewelry out of hand made paper beads & each item is a one-of-a-kind creation.
I am so blessed to be surrounded by such creative people...
