Check out whats new at the shop


These handmade doll heads (clay) have been staring up at me for quite some time. I need to make bodies for them. Hopefully soon!


Did you know that buttons make excellent embellishments for cards and tags? Of course they also look great just sitting around, too! I mean, who can resist them?


Just a few of my very favorite things:

Green depression glass perfume bottles! I love green and I love vintage perfume bottles so....
This is my vintage music box ballerina. She is very old but still dances to the Emperors Waltz. She moves up and down and her legs swing. When I found her she was missing her glass dome so I had to replace it. It doesn't fit really great but I've never found anything else that will work.

This is the glass dome replacement. It has a tendency to slip down.

The Week in Photos

I spent the week with my camera taking photographs of everything I found interesting. I will use these as inspiration this week for my collages and you may even see one as a background in one of my digital collages.

I love the way
the light is reflecting off the
water under the pier in this photo... and the
movement of the water is so pretty!
Sun setting in Newport...

Industrial sights....

Is there a romantic way to go? Maybe this is it...

Don't you just want to go inside!

Two days of sunshine at the coast, horray!

These are my two Yorkie "babies". They are not too sure about the ocean waves!

Woke up to a light sprinkling of snow this morning. What happened to Spring????? I have got Spring fever early this year. And to think its in the 70's in Phoenix, AZ.

I took the plunge and spent most of Sunday reworking my Etsy banner and avatar. Check it out at: and let me know what you think. Feel free to contact me or leave a comment. Would love to hear from you.

An Afternoon of Tags

I love birds. You will notice a bird theme going on in a lot of my cards and tags. I have a bird feeder just outside my window. I love to watch them in the early morning with my cup of java.

This was a productive afternoon. Hope yours was too! Some of these can be found at my shop!
