My "office" corner with a spanking new desk I ordered from pottery barn! I have been working on a old wood table that we used to have in the kitchen. 8 years later I decided it was time to streamline the desk area. It fits perfectly(because I measured the area first. I learned the hard way that what you see in catalogs can be deceiving. I NEVER ORDER any furniture that says "assembly required"! I put together a filing system and discovered that I did the 12 drawers backwards so they wouldn't pull out.............So 2 hours later it was redone right! I am too old for assembly!!!
Any way, the desk is only 8 days old and I am trying to keep it clean and not let the junk grow.
So many of you have commented on the header. So I went back and found the old blog post and here is the contents and the link.
Please read the note I found attached to the picture!
These ladies had fun!!!
Thanks for asking again!
I love to see my family enjoyed by others.
A picture from my mom's stuff! This photo was attached to a note that read... "Due to the extreme mental strain of an evening spent at the smith's, any of the above models may be located at one of the better known state institutions"! My mom is on your left and my aunt is on the far right! As you can see, my mom went for the "basic" altered newspaper...cut a hole in the middle of the newspaper and put it over your head!
I created this piece for a swap at my Paperwhimsy group. You were to make a little house based on a character from a children's story or fairy tale.
I chose Tom Thumb.
We are having our kitchen repainted and I had to clean out all the cupboards. I found this butter dish I bought(which at the time seemed like a good idea) and decided it would make a good glass house. I worked on it this last week and just finished it yesterday!
Thanks for a timely challenge to share my art creation! Front

Art has become for me "therapy". I can celebrate happy occasions or work through sad or difficult times by creating art. I love creating special art for others. I often use old family pictures in my pieces and feel good about giving them birth again. I love to laugh,am very sentimental, and cry more happy tears than sad ones. Loyality, honesty, and sharing good things with others is important to me. I enjoy seeing all the new art of artists friends and am learning something new every day!
Laughing makes better wrinkles on your face!
