where did the summer go?
True summer seems to have arrived late here in our part of the country, so many times it was too chilly to swim, or at least it was cool to the point of being cold if you got out of the pool! lots of nice weather though, even though it never officially reached 100 degrees here in rapid city..that was a first for our area i think..but now every day the sun is so nice and warm..perfect days for the pool, only now it is closed...but some of the leaves are starting to turn and am reminded of the wonderful days of autumn, i am still missing some shelves from my junk/studio room and so it is not so organized yet. Think i will make time to just install them myself...DH is working this weekend and will have lots of free time to myself. Am seriously thinking of listing lots of great fun stuff on etsy or either ebay as far as supplies go, if you could only see what i have stashed away! i have also decided to use this blog that probably no one else sees for a journal of sorts..my mom just turned 83 this month and seems to be in early stages of dementia..she wants to be done with this life and is eager for the next..so hard for me to accept that..anyone else dealing with this now?
welcome to my blog! i love to decorate, especially country french style mixing with primitive pieces, antiques and redesigned junke...i also have a grandson and another on the way! who has been our pride and joy for over 9 years, i have recently discovered mixed media and things in my junk/studio haven't been the same since! i have made many typewriter key bracelets over the past 3 years, but find myself shifting gears..i took an online class with joAnnA Pieretti ....i've discovered some wonderful other blogs that i am follow, all beautiful artistic work i've discovered from being a member of joAnnAs mosshillstudiosworkshops...http://mosshillstudioworkshops.ning.com/profile/Zannehart
Displayed on this page are a couple of artdolls i have done, am working on more~~~
crocheted wings that move if desired, vintage christmas candleholder clipped to her shoulder wit gemstone attached, tiny antique purse just her size, bits and bobbles of old purse come undone..rose buds adorned with more pieces of old french beads which once made up antique purse..buds from my corsage from daughters wedding, french charm on purse means "love you more than yesterday, not as much as tomorrow"
poor little angel
sweet little girl, had so much to lose..but freely shares what she does have left, she remembers her origins ..she is still a child of God, with her lovely pink roses tattoo still intact, her one wing exposed is made of mica from the black hills, her shawl is made from a piece of found goatskin and remnants of her old mink-lined suede cape, her buckle is an old token, her locket from an old sweetheart, her tiny diary given to her long ago from her best friend, kerchief and backpack are made from found old quilt from attic, pocket is old kid leather glove finger, pocket on top of green salvage of cape is embellished with her last bead, her base is a stand used to hold bills ~~her purpose is to remind us to give freely..just as God did...His only son~~~
