The days are starting to be quite chilly! The leaves are blowing off the trees, leaving October behind. I have been in a slight state of hiding…
Things to occupy the time
♥ handwriting dreams, inspirations and art ideas in my sketchbook
♥ eating lots of peppermints
♥ playing in my art journals with fragments of lace, torn pages from old books and paint
♥ browsing in junk shops and finding the most whimsical things
♥ going through my stash of old fabrics and finding velvets and embroideries 100 years old
♥ working on a painting I started a year and a half ago…and taking it in a completely different direction!
♥ making little wool doo-dads for my shoes from felt and vintage buttons
♥ being excited about wearing lush, wintery layers of wool, corduroy and velvet…. and most of all, tights!
♥ being inspired by the wind and cold and spending lots of time outdoors
And here are some pictures of my recent endeavours…
found things and the most beautiful tidbit of velvet
my “new” vintage spectator shoes with an embelishment I made from 1940’s materials- buttons and fabric clipped from an old patchy quilt
my most favorite, softest skirt
found vinage tin with wonderful folksy winter designs
And I am absolutely thrilled I hit 100 sales in my esty shop the other day! Thanks to all of my customers who buy and support my art prints! I would not be motivated to do anything without you!
