Work in Progress

It’s magical when a piece of wood inspires me. Unfortunately, or fortunately, the objects gathered are still waiting for the rest of the story to unfold. You can’t force these things ya’ know. It’s a real thing.  Serious business gluing random objects to an old board. ;)-  we’ll see.

Things I’ve Stopped to Glue

Part 1 – Glass on Glass Window Gallery

Every Miniature Tells a Story

Studio space is still on the “to do” list so … I’ve resorted to gluing some of my cherished vintage miniatures to functional objects like jars …

Pooh Jars

… and more than a few of my vintage china saucers …

Ring Dishes

… and when I ran out of jars and china I found my eye hooks and ball-chain. spuds-mackenzie

In the coming days … watch for shop listings of the miniatures I can part with.

“Everyone is born creative; everyone is given a box of crayons in kindergarten. Then when you hit puberty they take the crayons away and replace them with dry, uninspiring books on algebra, history, etc. Being suddenly hit years later with
the ‘creative bug’ is just a wee voice telling you, ‘I’d like my crayons back, please.”   –  Hugh MacLeod

Daily Distractions and Time Outs

Trying to organize the studio and decided that if I just glue everything to something else, it will take up less room.

This is what happened in April.

Recycled Art – Vintage China & Glass

Trunk up for Good Luck!

Somehow these 3 vintage plates ended up together, along with a crystal candlestick and 2 glass bud vases. Think the snack pics added a nice touch. Sort of a Mackenzie Childs vibe … may have to keep this one.

Finally finished a glass on glass window, that I glued a ceramic tile to 6 years ago, and she ended up as the “Goddess of the Boobies”
