Dear Lord

I can’t seem to get back in gear.


be ridiculous!


An over sized chicken wire picture frame to display cards!

I have just a few more holiday things to share—while try to find my motivation.

Mom had wAy more Christmas cards this year than the pretty zinc card wreath I got her would hold -so- Christmas eve morn’, I grabbed some picture frame molding (a cousin gave me lots of!) to create a large frame of chicken wire to display them.  *And sprayed it w/gold foil paint.

17″w x 6ft h  —  problem solved!

But me and the chicken wire—my hands looked like I was in a cat fight…and I lost!

Mom busily arranged her cards–we happened to find an old (from ’94) card that came addressed to mom’s late, zany cat Marvin! Stamps were only 29 cents?  -wOw!

Marvin's Christmas card--!



btw–this was the theme of family pics 2014!  Thought you might get a kick out of a few of them. . .

the granite urn at the entrance to my work studio--

above ◊  This granite urn sits at the entrance to my work studio (aka–the garage).  I love the red ruckus but it’s worse than rose thorns!

below ◊  This year’s Christmas tree was set in an enormous garden urn!  I had planned to use a tempered glass round with a big “donut” hole in it to become a “table tree” (hee hee!), but the urn was too tall and it all looked odd so the idea got scrapped.  booooo

I just couldn’t get this year’s tree trimmings “right,” but I do like the urn and big, sheer bow!  And the fresh tree smells sO good. . .


*Now~  if I could just find my work-groove again. . .
