The love of beads.

What a sweet shell.  I was so worried about drilling a hole in it, but it worked out great.  The great orange and black beads in the bottom one are beans.  I found most of these beads from the old broken jewelry.

Sewing Time

Been some time since I have been in the studio doing any sewing.  I love these peasant type patterns.  Easy to make and extremely comfortable to wear.

Fairy land




This horrible cat painting has been starring at me for too long at the thrift store.  First thing was to paint it over in black.  What came next just happened.  I am very happy with it.  The photos did not come out too well.  It is hard to get a great photo once I wax it.

If I had a pet elephant
