My little Chicklette!

I made this lil cutie from a borrowed mold, so she is a one of a kind. She sits atop a lidded container which is trimmed in a soft vintage pom pom fringe. Her Sunday hat is topped with vintage milinery flowers.

I am already looking forward to Spring? Aren't you?

Venturing back into poetry..

I borrowed this amazing photo from a blog I came across.. I was struck by the delicate beauty and resilience of the rose.. it inspired this short poem.

Wildlife Rescue

This poor little Yellow Rumped Warbler flew into our French door a short while ago.
I didn't want to frighten him, but I did roll him gently back onto his feet, as he was struggling on his back. Here he is still quite dazed.. but appears to be recovering.

A bit better.. not quite so shaky.

Just about back to his old self

Ready to fly!!
He took off just a minute or so after I took this picture. First he landed on our window sill, then flew to our oak tree. A happy ending for this little yellow rumped beauty!!

Happy Valloween!

Victorian Style Cone..
with a twist..

A Valentine~Halloween crossover piece!

I had so much fun with this! I just love the look of black with pink.. so what's better than a black cat on a pink Valentine?

I used vintage sheet music, silver German glitter, vintage pink crepe paper and millinery sprig.. The handle is made from a beautiful wired French ribbon.

I hope to make more of these!

Creepy Campfire

Unexpected creepy effect

I took this picture of my daughter this past summer at a small lake in Northern Wisconsin. My brothers, cousins and kids all rowed down to our Aunt and Uncle's cabin in the dark, holding these glow sticks. We had a Harry Potter style sorting ceremony with the sorting hat for fun. We roasted marshmallows, made smores then rowed back to our resort. It was a great time, with lots of fond memories.
