Studio Redemption!

 ~Lace~
Oh my...  
My Love Affair with Lace
 has been a Long Standing one.
 
This week I have been Sorting through it 
to reintroduce myself 
with the pieces I have Collected. 
This is just the Begininng
of my Studio Redemption..
  
 It doesn't seem like very long ago 
that my Studio was in Order.....
It was in absolutely Pristine Shape
What Happened.....?
At Least I have 
Pictures to Prove it!
"Look Honey! See! Was Too Picked up!"
"Was Not.."
"Was Too!"
Well...for a little While anyway..
 This weekend....
Between Soccer Games 
and a Family BBQ..
My Plan...
 is to Restore it to 
its Former Glory!
What is on Your  Work Table?
~*~
Have a Wonderful,
Safe
Memorial Day Weekend!

~Belle et Douce~ Beautiful & Sweet ~

 ~Belle et Douce~ Beautiful & Sweet
 is made up with some of my 
Most Favorite and Treasured Pieces. 
 I Love that Each Piece 
tells a Story from the Past.
 I Look at the Beautiful Piece
 of Edwardian Lace
And Wonder about the Dress it Came From.
What it Looked Like when it was New.
 I wonder about Who sipped Soup
 from this Silver spoon
and the Woman who Wore this
Rhinestone Pin.
 I Love using Antique & Vintage Elements 
In my Art Work. 
I just Feel it gives them something Unique and Special, 
Making all a Truly One of a Kind Piece. 
By the Way...
 These Paper Whimsy  
Sweethearts
are So Lovely..
They were Inspiration in themselves.
Have a Wonderful Weekend My Friends

~ A Mothers Love~

Garden Bench ~ James Tissot
A mother is the truest friend we have, 
when trials heavy and sudden, fall upon us; 
Child Braiding Crown~ Adolphe William Bouguereau
 when adversity takes the place of prosperity; 
when friends who rejoice with us in our sunshine desert us;

 when trouble thickens around us, still will she cling to us, 
 and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels 
to dissipate the clouds of darkness, 
Mother and Child ~Jessie Wilcox Smith~
and cause peace to return to our hearts.  
~Washington Irving

 Happy Mothers Day
 to My Mom,
My Friend.
Hope your Day is Spent Surrounded
 by the People You Love Most!
 Happy Mothers Day
 to All of You!
Have a Wonderful Weekend !

Beautiful French Ephemera & Digital Art

 A While Back I Received a
 Beautiful Antique French Document dating 1848
and some French Money Orders
 with Wonderful Typography. Also these Gorgeous Stamps
They Came from a New Friend in France.
 
 I can't Tell you how amazing it is to Hold 
a Handwritten Document from 1848. 
I  thought it would be Fun to Look up 
what was Happening in France during this time.
They were in the Midst of another Revolution 
where  Louis Napoleon Bonaparte 
( Nephew of Napoleon)
was Elected the President of the Second  Republic.
I Find this so Interesting!
 
Here is some Digital Fun I had with 
These Beautiful Old Pieces of Ephemera.
 Crowns & Butterflies...
 Bees & Keys...
Baroque Borders and Beautiful Script!
Some of my Favorite things!
Have a Wonderful Sunday Everyone !
