Easter Work

I just finished up some new Easter pieces. If interested in purchasing one just drop me a line at for prices and sizes. For close ups just click on the Easter link at the top left of the page. I even used pink in some of these pieces, very unusual for dark, dreary me!!

If only....

If I ever win the lottery I would'nt purchase a fancy new car or buy diamonds. I would start collecting santos'. To me they are such beautiful works of art and invoke such a feeling of peace and tranquility when i look at them.
I am currently madly in love with these pieces that are on ebay. I could sit for hours and look at them and can only imagine what it would be like to see them in person. I hope that whoever wins them will treasure them like they should be, I just wish I could be the one!

Antique show finds

Yesterday, my hubby and I drove down to Springfield OH to an antique show which happened to be located between 3 antique malls! Boy was I in seventh heaven, not so much for hubby but he bravely trooped thru them with me...Now I have lots of ideas about using all these goodies, just have to find the time to bring them to

A Few Good Finds

It was such a pretty day out that I drove to Medina OH to visit some antique malls. I really enjoyed looking but there was'nt too much to buy! I did pick up a few things though to use for Easter pieces that I am working on. Next weekend I am heading off to Springfield OH for an antique/ flea market show, hope there is more to choose from there!

my sweetheart

My little girl Maggie is so sweet I had to share a pic of her. She loves having her belly rubbed, just like a dog. As soon as she sees me she drops and rolls on her back waiting for her rub. What a life!

more etsy finds

As I was browsing Etsy I came across these wonderful pieces in the style of
Michael deMeng. The artist, six06 ,captures the intensity of his work but adds
her own wonderful twist and style. Someday when I am brave enough this is
the kind of work I would love to try!

New Work

I just finished up these pieces and they will be on their way to Earth Angels. I had fun using tintypes which I don't normally use. Sorry the photos are'nt the best but it is such a dreary day here things are not photographing how I would like!

I am a huge fan of Steampunk and the artists that create it. I found these two pieces that I am totally infatuated by on Etsy this morning. The artist Urbandon has earned my admiration and I would love to one day own a piece of his!
