There's Hope for Us Paper Hoarders!



Do you know who Eunice Parsons is?
If you do paper collage, you really need to watch this.

And also click HERE! I couldn't embed this one....
and you reallllly need to watch it.

And here is her tumbler page.

I love on the second video how she puts a white mat around
her compositions - totally helps you see your work. I knew this once
upon a time.............  sometimes I need reminding!

Warrenton 2014 Spring



Returned to my concrete doll head planter booth!
 
Pictures from last fall's show here.
(He had more heads then...)
 
He has more than doll heads....
lots more....
He's behind Excess and on the left side.
(Warrenton)

Soooooo... it's Texas Antique Week in Round Top/Warrenton, TX!
So if you've read this blog for a few years, you know I'm going....
Melinda and I went just for the day yesterday........ a beautiful day in the 60's!

Those dishes above would be great for someone that plays cards a lot.... didn't buy em.
They were still at Clutter when I left there yesterday.


The doll head lady is still in Warrenton.......... remember when she was at the very back?
Not any more........... more booths beyond her now!

Clutter shot just cause I love them!
 
Below are some great bottles and some reallllllllllly nice baskets.... Yesterday a lot of set up was still going on.......... it's very early in the show.... (click on the pictures to see larger)...



Loved these benches below...............

I didn't buy a lot........... sweet, sweet old book of script and some lace (all from Clutter).
 
Got this dove bird house (tin)....... from Mexico.... $15....

Great article in The Huffington Post last year.


And I finally gave in and bought an olive basket.
Not sure what I'm going to do with it.
Going price seemed to be $35 right now.
(One booth was charging $60!!!)
 
In case you haven't seen these...
(they are all over Round Top/Warrenton)
look here on Pinterest.
And here on Etsy!!!
 

 
If you stillllllllllll don't know if you should go,
watch this!!!

My Exploding Box Begins


 
I've gotten in my art room a few times recently.... and I started an exploding box!
It's an exploding box done the Misty Mawn way!
I have to say this is the best online class I've ever taken....
 
It's her Full Circle class and you should definitely take it.
The videos will be up until June of 2015..... which is what it will take for me to
do them all or even most of them....
 
 



 
I'll show you when I finish......
still have to do the outside covers of the box!!

Spring Break My Style

 It's been "spring break" in my "neck of the woods" this week.....
 
My adorable granddaughter was here for about 3 days..... She's getting soooo big!

 And then I got to spend the night with my new grandson at his house this week, too!
He's simply gorgeous!
 
Hope to get to the art room tomorrow!
Are you having Spring Break?
