You can't make me!

My sweet guy does not have quite the artist spirit that dwells within other words...he is always trying to get me to throw away things that I see have a future in my art heart.

This is what I see.....and this, a paper rose made from unwinding the bag handle.....

This is what he sees.....trash!
No, all it needs is a bit of paint....and a few hours of me time ....then it cane be a journal cover...or....

This is the other side of the bag awaiting its ME time!
I finally have the vintage trouble lights installed. They come in handy to light up the project I am working on.

This sweet new addition came from my neighbor...he picked it up for me on his vacation!!! I had invited him up while the studio was in process. After, I thought...OK, I just showed him how very weird I am!!! But now I think.....He gets me!!!

More trash......sewn into the cutest of bunting...catching the wee bit of breeze in the studio....I am off to make another bunting of silhouettes and vintage book pages....have the best of weekends!


Joy................................all ways


  1. I love the trash to art...and I know you will make it sing! The trouble light is just wonderful and I'm happy he "gets you". Doesn't that feel good?!

  7. Glad to see I'm not the only one wanting other people's trash. Love the recycling of the bag handle. Remember when that twisted paper stuff was all the rag? Or am I showing my age~LOL!!

    Do you have a metal mattress hanging from your ceiling? COOL! And I have some of those vintage Japanese lanterns...thanks for inspiring me to dig them outta the closest and USE THEM!!
