a special visitor...

ok...guess who?
I first started this blog as an art blog, where I met so many of my art friends.  Well I have had the longest ever, art funk...I don't even know how long, that is how long it has been.
I got a visit from my long lost muse...
I saw some bookmarks I adored awhile back and kept saying ...someday...Well I ordered the supplies and when they came, I jumped right in.  I love them...I originally thought I would use vintage velvet, then I spied the striped ribbon.  Next lot will be more velvet, and less 'fussy'.

I dressed mine up with laces and flower ribbon.  Of course the clip findings screamed for vintage and costume jewelry.  I had the best time...
I might have to keep this one.
This is Steve's Grandma Jones' bible.  It is falling apart and brittle, but I love it.  She has notes inside and many scriptures are underlined.  Her writing in the margins, she was a wonderful lady.  Loved church!  And he will tell you, she was loving and firm.  I have some good memories of her, she was funny.  She spent time with her children as she aged going from house to house as they were spread over the states.  She would be in the bathroom for a very long time...and they only had one.  She would do her crosswords in there...hahahaha.
Happy Sunday to you all, I am happy to finally share some art! xo


  1. Well that's what bathrooms are for...reading...and crossword puzzles!! lol!!

  5. each time i used to read smaller content that also clear
    their motive, and that is also happening with this piece of writing which
    I am reading at this time.

  6. The next thing to keep in mind is the use of good cleansing agents.
    When you have kids at home, it is important that use of acids,
    poisonous chemicals etc shouldn t be used, as
    it would be impossible to keep watching them all the time from smearing
    them on their hands. There would be more things for you to get concerned about if
    the children s health is disturbed.
