Vintage Funk Jewelry (Brooches)

Here is some of my new work. This pic isn't the best, but it's the best I have for today! I will try to do better with the next batch. You get the idea anyway, with what's kept me busy today.

Mmmmmm Good!

Last night's dinner was delicious. Beef wellington, stuffed pesto portabella mushrooms, risotto and sauteed squash. Of course I didn't eat the Wellington, but everything else was super yummy!

Even Though

Even though I am a vegetarian and all that, I still think these buttons are kinda cool. I doubt I'd use them on anything, but people seem to really like them. I think they'd be cool on lodge look art or things like that. I guess knitter's use them too. To each their own!
P.S. That's my grandfather in the pic.

Still Sewing Collages

I am still at it as you can see. Seems everyone is pulling at me from so many places, there just aren't enough hours in the day. It's my own fault, I know I just tend to take on too much and my mind wants to do more than my body can. It's just the artists way, I am told. Anyway, I enjoy everything I do and that's what counts in life, isn't it?

Fabric Collage

Here are some things I worked on today. I felt like getting my trusty old sewing machine out and giving it some use today. I hope you enjoy them.

I admit it, I am addicted.

Trying hard to kick the bottled water habit without going to rehab. It's hard. Picked up these nifty bottles at Crate And Barrel and I am doing pretty well so far. I think they are pretty, artful and keep the water pretty cool so far. They were even nicely priced! I will see how I do!

Family Memories

Here's a collage I did of my dad and uncle in 1920. My dad is the one in the chair. There were 11 kids in his family. My mom had 10 in hers. Can you imagine the cousins I have in this world? Every Sunday at my grandma's (moms) house was like Thanksgiving. My dad's side lived on the East coast so we never saw them as much.
