I found this bowl at the flea market but I can't find anything about it. The bowl is really thin white glass and the design is done in black and gold. It looks a lot like pieces by Georges Briard (you can see samples of his work on flickr) but my bowl is unsigned.

Lovely Clusters

Some of my cards have been featured in the Lovely Clusters Autumn/Winter 2012-13 Catalog. The catalog is really beautiful and when you see the fabulous photographs, you really want to buy EVERYTHING! I can't believe my photos made the cut.
You can see the Lovely Clusters website here and my cards are available in my Etsy shop here.

Tea in the Garden

At one of my craft shows, I was approached by a woman who commissioned me to do a tea party collage for her daughter's birthday party. She backed out after I had completed it so, I gave it to a very special little girl-my niece-whose family has just moved into their first house. It's now in her brand new bedroom.
The collage combines acrylic paint and handmade papers on canvas. It's the largest thing I've done at 16" x 20". The quote is from a song by Raffi.

Another Flea Market Sunday

I can't believe it's September already. What happened to August? One good thing about starting a new month is that the first Sunday is the flea market at Pasadena City College. Sometimes I find a lot of goodies, and sometimes I don't. Yesterday, I found lots to buy. One item was this cute vintage book. It was originally published in 1960 and is called "Corkey's Friend". It is one in a series by Cecelia and Jean Hinde. Corkey's friend is a mouse named Slim (Corkey never actualy makes an appearance in this book and I'm not entirely sure what kind of animal Corkey is since I haven't seen the other books). In this story, Corkey is sick so Slim rides around town on his stick horse and buys gifts for his sick friend at the candy store, pet store and toy store. I was attracted by the cool palette of olive green, teal blue and melon.
