Working on these small pieces for our SMALL WORKS exhibit sponsered by the Taylor Artist Guild.  All proceeds benefit American Cancer Society!  I had so much fun with the sexy, pink women.  And I loved playing with the embossing power on the blue women.  Much fun!
Today was a beautiful day to create!  I stumbled upon these interesting brass handles in Canton, TX.  I just love them!  A little more experimenting and it will be wearable!

Another BLUE MONDAY is upon us. I had to slam on the brakes, do a quick turn around 
to catch a shot of these great, old, rusty cars. I think the truck driver thought I was CRAZY!

If I could be a mermaid bold,
I would sit and sing the whole of the day;
I would fill the sea-halls with a voice of power;
But at night I would roam abroad and play......
Alfred Lord Tennyson

I love this vintage mermaid!  Thank you,  Vintage Moth for sharing!

The early settlers knew of gold and only contemplated its value, but she knew that she
loved it because it made her feel "sparkley"!

It IS a BLUE Monday. I am left to think of the beach on this cool, blustery day in Texas. Let's go surfing!
