A fairy lives here...

I worked in my studio all day today. The house was fairly quiet, the children were away most of the day doing there own things. Each came home at different times. When I was packing up for my show tomorrow, I noticed tiny fairy bouquets sitting on my bureau...



Aren't they magical? Tiny little flowers gathered into darling bouquets.



Hydrangea, Coleus blossoms...tenderly wrapped in leaves.





I found her...the fairy fae who lives here and leaves me magical little trinkets.
Must be sure she knows how special she is.

I have three sons. Any of you mothers of just sons can empathize with me that there is a little part of your soul that longs for a daughter. She is a shining star...so different than the boys. She leaves me love notes and tokens all of the time.

These bouquets made me day and I had to share. Tomorrow we share an adventure participating in the Mermaid Mercantile. A Mother/Daughter day.

In the Pink!

As you lovely ladies out there know, or should know.
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
I am dedicating this post to my Friend Apryl and her sister Norma.
Apryl was diagnosed with the same breast cancer, in the same breast and the
same age as her older sister Norma. Norma lost her life to the disease while she was undergoing experimental drug testing. For Norma it was too late and she was too far into her disease and lost her life to it. 10 years later when Apryl was diagnosed her life was saved by the same treatment her sister was part of the trial for.
She is a miracle.



In their honor and in honor of the many others who have won and lost their battles to the disease, I have decided to post some of my favorite pink things from my photo
program.










Remember to get the Ta-Tas checked ladies. so we can each see many more beautiful sunsets with our loved ones. xoxo, Lisa

Work last week

Last Thursday, I spent the day with my Soul Sister Kathy. We met over 10 years ago, in a thrift store. Yep, our junktiqueing travels brought us together and we have been pals ever since!

We traded a piece of furniture for my painting services on a dress form for her business. Here it is...






Friday's Work was painting a beautiful crown on the floor of Andrea Harris' Antique space at Treasures & Junk in Ontario. She was super happy with the finished product as I was. It was taken from a Vintage Image.





I'll post about my Saturday Yard sale adventures Tomorrow! Happy Monday everyone!

My Oh, My...what a fun day it was at Glitterfest! I was happy with my display...







The King of Halloween and his Friends!








Pumpkin Fairy, Mr Skeleton and my most cherished and prized altered art Mannequin!

They were a hit and many of these went home with customers.







Many eyeball hair flowers flitted off...as did Mr. Skeleton spider who was
