Shadow of My Former Self

Love the Magic Hour Photo App!

Some of the photos are quite stunning,  if I do say so myself.

This is who I am, when nobody’s watching.

Holiday Make and Take

Had a vintage Candy Land game that moved with me for over 30 years. I sold it. 

Took a picture before I shipped it off to New York.

Now it’s a pillow … or a poster … or whatever else I stick it on.

It’s going in the boy’s room … hope the dogs don’t think that it’s theirs.

Feeling very Zazzie Today!

The HeART of Handmade Gifts II

It takes more time to come up with a mosaic tile design than it does to glue it down.

Problem is the materials (go through your junk drawers and jewelry boxes) change as you go along … some pieces make the cut … others will not. This is not the time to get discouraged.

If I’m on a roll and the pieces are falling into place … it takes me about an hour to glue a single light switch cover.

If I’m not on a roll … I’ve already started gluing something else.

The gypsy quote is a pendant that I’ve had since high school … and it went from there.

Going to glue ball and chain to the outer edge, after the grout dries.

Maybe you should too.
