Traces of Laces...
I pulled out some of my fancy lace today. My dear friend Diane Knott had shared a huge bag of gorgeous pieces with me...I don't want to use it up! (Pack Rat!) A few small projects are waiting for finishing touches~ lace will be the perfect detail! I've been working on some spec designs during the day...scooting outdoors on these warm, sunny days for a little fun in the gardens...and crafting somewhere in between. There seems to be so much time in the day with the kids back in school...(miss them so!)
The bird earrings will make sweet details on the craft projects, too~ Just have to figure out how to attach them! They were a "find" at $1.25 at an antique co-op! They remind me of birds that I loved as a child. They perched on the barbed wire fencing that bordered our yard along one side and the back. When they flew off they had the sweetest call. I can still hear it, however I can't identify it. Up until I was in college...a bird was a bird. I don't recognize that sweet "Litchfield bird" call from any of the birds around our home. I have a bird book with a disc that describes their calls...maybe I'll listen to it while I paint BIRDS tomorrow! I'll let'cha know if I fall asleep listening!
