Feathers & New Art...

Sweet 16 and I found a barn sale that had
boxes filled with all sorts of goodies!
Look at all these feathers!
She found a huge box of stained glass...
I know she will be sharing pictures when she
gets her blog up and running~


I need a day to sit and clean them...


Huge ones...
Little ones...
Bright ones...
Dull ones...


I love these plump shapes...
They're my favorites!


I listed a few more pieces in my etsy shop...


I'm running out of my little circles...
They're so much fun to draw on!


I know something else will catch my eye!


I love the Americana pieces...
When I invest in a sewing machine...
WHEN...
(giggle, giggle)
I will make pillows, banners, etc. with
patriotic themes to fill our home!


These old buttons are so thick!


I have always loved lighthouses...
Always a favorite subject at art festivals!


Hope you stop by my Etsy store to see
all of my new pieces...
More coming soon!

School is winding down for our teens~
Such a CRAZY BUSY time...
But a VERY GOOD time!

Hope you're having a great weekend!

Hi Michelle, I've only been following your blog for a couple of months. I love your work. I specialise in embroidery and mixed media, but can't draw at all. Is it possible for you to sell items to the UK. I have a PayPal account. I would love to make some of your pieces as the centrepeice of my crazy quilting. Blessings

Oh Michelle, what a terrific find!!
The colors are outstanding. I met a few weeks ago in SC Ann Kullberg.
She was teaching for 3 days portrait studies. The 2nd session is in January. If I do my homework and she approves I may get to go to that session without the first. So maybe just maybe someday when I grow up I can do pencils a smidgen like you. LOL ya sure, in my dreams. Hugs

My friend, it is always a joy to visit and see what you are up to! First of all, you're the Feather-Finding-Queen even without this cache you came across! And now...you're adding colors to your sketches! Wonderful!!
You've obviously been having FUN!
