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.

Before attempting to empty the 2 storage lockers full of stuff,  it’s probably a good idea to list the art and vintage that is already unpacked and ready to find a new home. #ourkidswillthankmeforthis 😉

#1 – Item of the Day is  “Golden Girl a beloved mosaic tile stick incense holder that was created with gorgeous iridescent tile, gold tapestry tile, gold shimmer tile and a vintage porcelain flora figurine with ladybug. Glued on to 3/4″ MDF board and then finished off with taupe sanded grout and sealed. One of a kind. Shop.

I was so inspired that I painted this metal stool too. I wonder if Lisa  still has it in her kitchen?

Just another fine example of inspiration slapping you in the face and then skipping away.
