FABRIC and PAPER ART FROM MY HEART


Out in the Prairie where the wildflowers grow and the song of the birds like melody flows, there's a peace God bestows that brings joy to the soul...

Time to clean out, and redo. I'm so glad we are going out for Thanksgiving Dinner this year,although  ! I will miss all the leftovers the best part of all the wonderful food.

A little Rustic Assemblage


A little rustic assemblage/collage in a old barn wood frame, I was not sure what was going to happen with this? some found objects from the woods,from I my recent hike. It's a bit crude looking, but I kinda like it.

Altered Record Album


I bought this old record album this summer, and it's been sitting waiting for something? It's a neat album to place favorite memories, old photos or special letters in or what ever you can think of. It's in my Etsy shop

Dinning room make over


Dinning room is starting to look a little like I want, in the next week or so we will be painting the walls, can't wait to see it done.

Guest Bedroom Quest


The following pictures are of my guest bedroom. Looking for treasures for this room has been so much fun. It's starting to look kinda neat now. This picture of Mrs. Grover Cleveland was a cool buy at a local auction about 6 years ago-I knew I would find the right spot for her. The shelf below was given to me by my Mother-in-law, how sweet she was and miss her dearly. The rest is something I made or found on my hunts.

Guest Bedroom coming together



Treasure hunting paid off with this paris themed suitcase I found at a local Market shop. It's in my guest bedroom and just love it.
