A Work in Progress

Finding my step at a time.  Blogging is new to me, so....please bear with me as I go. My intention is to introduce myself, my interests, my likes...maybe dislikes.  Work in progress if I can find fresh batteries for the camera..always a problem.
The past weeks have been a jumble of different things...losing two dear family members....realizing how short life is and how important it is to appreciate every moment of every day.

Estate sale treasure hunt....I love treasure hunting.  Fancy old hats from the 30's,40's etc.  Lacy gloves, tea cups and saucers.  Gorgeous old pieces of the past.  Latest old dresser for my studio.  It holds my treasures, vintage laces, special fabrics etc.

My three canine children....left to right..Our newest adoptee sweet little mischief maker Pink, Charlotte, the little princess of the three, and Rusty, the brain and mastermind.

It isn't the bugs eating the berries or the reason the Lilies aren't blooming.....Pink discovered my berries...and a pot of Lilies.  She loves to sit on anything that's elevated.

Some of my favorite pieces and why....

Nocturne is one that I wish I had kept. The combination of the candles soft glow,the rich fabrics and the unusual brass lamp created a beautiful setting for this sweet little faerie. She lives with a lovely young woman
in England who calls me Nana.

Princess Charlotte was given gorgeous Peacock feathers for wings, dressed in jewel toned fabrics, she truly looked like a Princess.

Captured had such a sad little face.  I felt a strange sense of guilt for being the one responsible for her anguish.

I called this one Jodi`O after my oldest grand daughter.  When she was about four yrs old we were having a picnic in the back yard and being annoyed by a persistant fly... she asked me..."Why did God create flies  anyway?"  She was full of so many questions..much like this little fairy who asked me why are you pulling all the Dandy Lions?  The gist of the piece was that Jodi`O the fairy came along behind me and re-planted the dandelions.

"In Love With The Man In The Moon'
This set had so much to look at.  The sweet faced little Princess dressed in my favorite colors and fabrics, carressing the face of the elegantly bejeweled Man In The Moon, the object of her affection.

Flicker and Flame two of my all time favorites, they were such a fun pair to create.
Irenee, little fairy of illumination, so delicate looking.
