finding inspiration...

So here is the little live version of the Capture painting in the last post. This witch is the work of one of my mother's good friends...I have a little black one that I will share later, but she is so detailed you would not believe it! She can't seem to keep these tiny witches in stock! And this cream witch is perfect for my mom...she loves everything light and airy!

Is she any more wicked in the dark...hmm...not sure!

welcome little fall witches!

What a fun time of year it is! Alas, there is no chill in the air here, but there are many fun fall treats out there to welcome fall! This sweet painting was just done by my mother. She has done a series of Halloween painting to celebrate the season and I can't even pick which witch is the best! This one is called Capture, as the witch is being held in a bird cage! Ha!

pretty french treats and trims

Don't you just love all the antique trims and laces....I always want to put these things on my daughter's clothes...but I just know if i do they will just fall apart when I wash everything...so I just have all these little piles of goodies...just like my mom! Just going through them all is so inspiring to make new creations....

These are all bits and pieces from trips my mom and I have taken to Europe...scouring markets for little odd bits to bring home.
