Mended Pages


More often than not it is the imperfection of a thing that makes it special. When I'm browsing through old books for collage material the pages that have flaws are the ones that stand out to me. Whether they are mended, scribbled, torn or stained these blemishes are what I seek.

April Art Blocks


A bundle of April art blocks....steeped with longing for those endless summer days just 'round the corner. April has such been a tease so far hasn't she? I'll post these art blocks (and a few others) in the shop throughout the day.

Starry, Starry Tights

Starry, Starry Tights, mixed media assemblage art doll


And...a close up look at those starry, starry tights :) The attire of this fine lady was inspired by these acrobatic wonders.

“The other dolls sat upon the shelf and looked straight before
them, for it would never do to let grown-up men know that
dolls were really alive.”

Book Quilt


Finally got around to photographing the book quilt I shared with you last week. This patchwork of frayed book skins represents many different volumes....a French dictionary, children's primers, a physiology textbook, various science books, a guide to insects and a bible story book.

A big thanks to those of you who shopped at my Spring Sale! If you're reading this and missed it I'll plan to keep the coupon code active 'til tonight ;) Coming up this week are two 'wall doll' assemblages and a group of April art blocks.

Spring Sale


I took a snapshot of this lone daffodil in our front yard a couple days ago. The next morning one of the neighbor's cats decided to sit on it but at least I got the picture, right?! Anyhow, I'm thinking since it's such a lovely time of year I should have a little shop sale to celebrate:
