I've been carrying these pictures around in my camera for a week or so and this is the first opportunity I've had to post them. As you will see, my photography skills have still not improved, but what the hay! Right now it's not my priority! This is a butt's eye view of my first bumble bee. ( the front view will appear in the next couple of frames because i messed up on the sequence) It kinda looks like he's loosing his underpants! LOL! This is the chalk wall behind the purchase counter at the shop.
Meet Mr. Fly. he is not showing his butt!

Front view of the bumble bee.
I love this clock! I made it out of an old, rusty, wagon(?) wheel and shabby clock face. It works!
Embellished book covers.
A white spider resting under some alluring mushrooms.Next week-end is Kane Flea Market and I can't wait to show you what I've been working on for it. So till next time, blogger buddies, stay safe and keep well.

Just a quick post before I delete most of the pictures from my camera. The storage is full and I need to "clean house" before I can take any more pictures. Spring cleaning has arrived, starting with my camera! (BTW, THE ROBINS HAVE RETURNED! A SURE SIGN OF SPRING, AT LAST!) This dress form was a commissioned piece. I took it to Kane for the customer but it turned out that it had to be picked up at the Greyslake Show. Not a problem as I acquired two more commissions which I need to start working on. The body of the form was a wicker bust which I covered with paper mache and embellished with white burlap. The "skirt" is an old,tall tomato cage.

Sold lots of fabric mushrooms.

Skirted stool sold.

This is a primitive wood box to which I added lengths of wire to make a fun place to store books. Note the box was a favorite place for my fabric spiders!

If you squint really hard, you can see the last two of the paper feathers that were recently featured on a blog tutorial. Sorry all, I really need to work on the quality of my photos. I promise to do that soon. (See Janice! I hear ya!)
