This sign hangs just outside my studio door. It conveys my sentiments, especially for this month of August. For me this month has been filled with goodbyes to friends feathered, furry, and of the human variety.

~Looking at the bigger picture...

I wish I could have more time with them all, or at least, spent what I had more wisely.

Through it all I have been working on little creations here and there.... that I will share a little
later. :)

Look Pat!!!!

Earlier this summer my friend Pat and I did some trading. On my side of the bargain~four vintage chippy white chairs. Perfect for my kitchen table !!!!!!!!

Pat threw in some material to recover the seat cushions. What do you think?

A summer vingette- Anabelle hydrangeas, shells, bleached starfish, and old photo of my mom and her sisters. Mom is the little girl far right.

Oh for a walk on the beach right now~sigh.....

Hope's Handiwork

I just wanted to share a couple more examples of Hope's creativity with you. Because I got the picture order mixed up you get to view the close up first. This is a necklace she made using ribbon (love that color), vintage chain , keyhole plate, and key, with a few crystal beads. I love the pop of red! There is a bracelet to match that didn't make the photo shoot for some odd reason.

Hope is partial to ribbon;she uses it many of her creations. Pink ribbon and a green Bakelite button. Simply beautiful!
A close up!
