After a little persuasion,
Cindy of Whimsical Musings
has convinced me to join in
with her link party called
"Celebrate Your Creative Spirit".
Hop over and check out the amazing pieces
these fabulous women have created. Sigh.
Since I haven't been able to do much exercise
(BTW I have an appt. with a Podiatrist on Monday!)
I find myself sitting in my studio . . . .thinking.
Here is what I have created.
Just for me.
Not for a swap. Not for a gift.
Just for me :)
I've been trying to capture my summer - so far.
I am not a summer person AT ALL!
It's been nice and cool here in So Cal
and for the first time,
I've spent time at the beach.
It was so nice. It was unexpected.
A jumble of shells and pretty sea blue beads that
I've recently accumulated through a bead swap.
A gorgeous vintage piece and
FABULOUS vintage lace. Sigh.
It took a lot for me to use these pieces.
Remember - I have a tendency to HOARD!
And this pretty lady.
I wonder what she is thinking.
I could've lived in this era very easily.
More shells, beads and a vintage earring.
All laying on hand dyed burlap I've placed on to
the back of an 11" x 14" canvas.
And because she's been on my mind a lot lately
- a teal ribbon for my Mom.
It's a little bright - it looks kind of funny.
It doesn't really go.
But oh well. It means so much to me.
And that's what this is all about. Me.
OK Cindy - thanks for the encouragement.
I'm sorry I am so late to the party - but . . .
better late than never!
I'm looking forward to drawing a name for my giveaway!
It's still not too late to join in!
Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
