Back to playing with rusty junk!

Seems like it has been a while since I have been able to create some new work but with the long winter this year, I just was not able to get out and do some junkin and pickin to find goodies to play and create with! Now I just need all the rain to stop so I can get out to the flea markets and garage sales to stock up on supplies so that I can get ready for the next Earth Angels show in Sarasota Springs, NY in May. I think I need to move somewhere that has sunny skies all year round!!

Luckily I was able to find some interesting pieces to work with at the antique stores to keep the creative juices flowing.

Thank you for finding the pieces you can find and putting them together so perfectly! Sometimes I see a odd bits and pieces at the swap meet and think to myself,"What Cheryl could do with that!"
I hope that you can get a break in the weather and get out to those flea markets! You could always come out here to California! I would be so happy to go out to the shops and markets with you!
