Today is a bad day

I knew today was just plain bad when I woke up.  I feel awful...flu or something....and then my hubby texts me that Davy Jones has passed away.  I loved him....he was so adorable and I love the Monkees.
When their show aired I was not yet born....but in the 80's they replayed the series and I loved them!!!!

They were funny and Davy was the Justin Beiber of the day.  So cute.  I am sad that he is gone, and only 66.....what a shame.  :(

Mixed media artwork

Hi everyone!  Did you have a nice weekend and President's day?  I took my daughter to the orthodontist...great fun way to spend the afternoon....and then her bracket fell off that they just worked on and then they can't see her until next Tuesday.....I was not a happy camper.
But....I must let it go for now.
Here are some more new paintings....mixed media....I use lots of papers, acrylic paints, and different inks.

I am a big fan....of things that "Meow".  I have 3 tabbys....they are so much fun.  Right now they are snoozing it up.

This gal's hair reminds me of "Hairspray"....I love both movie versions.  

Sometimes just a one word statement is all you need.  
I have got to get busy...I have a huge list of things to do and I know I can only get to some of it today.  Have a pleasant afternoon!

Vintage goodies....found

I went shopping yesterday...we had alot of fun...but we walked some rather scary parts of downtown Spokane to see all the little stores we wanted to see.  The above picture is a of a Avon kitty perfume holder....sweet honesty is inside.  I had this when I was little...I really treasured it....but it was long gone.  This one is like brand new!  With plenty of perfume that still smells sweet!

When we were little we went to the Hillyard Variety store...a 5 and 10 cent store.  All of us loved the perfume...Ben Hur.  We have been trying to find it for years....I scored it yesterday for 4 bucks.  Everytime I saw it on ebay they wanted a fortune for an empty bottle.  Boy...does it still smell great!

This isn't vintage...just cute! lol   This is my cat Froy ....doing what he does best...snoozing!

I found these old pipe says to make toys, favors, and novelties....boy do things change.

It is full of lovely colors...look it was once 10

This cheesecloth was wrapped around some cardboard to look like a small bolt of fabric....pretty cool!
I design alot of patterns using I always need more.

I love the Dennison company....and I love labels....25 cents for it only went up in price a few pennies.

This was in a bag....just a bag of goodies...I love carpet thick and useful....think whiskers!!!

We went to a thrift store too... I love pansies and stamping.  Plus I can always use another star punch.

Old French cool.

I don't know what it says....I took French in high school but I was always laughing and joking in that class...I don't know much about French....oh well.

These lil ladies are so cool...and dramatic!  I am always looking for cool old pics....I even got a Halloween party picture...but I am saving that til Halloween comes closer.  
Today we are reorganizing some of the rooms in our house...and I am spending a little time goofing around blogging...HE HE HE!!!!

Friends- new painting!

Here are some of my latest paintings.  I had a blast combining papers with paint...there is something amazing about seeing your talents grow...slowly over time....because each time you practice or make some kind of get better.  For first embroidery....a kitten with a butterfly ...was a every respect!!!.  But embroidery is very nice.

I love banners....I love flowers.....I love the light sky blue.  I have so many old books that end up in these pieces.  They are beautiful in their own right.

Life is good!  This is a large big to scan. This one makes me really want Spring...bad!   I will have most of my new paintings on red bubble...a print shopping site.... soon.  
Hope everyone had a fab Valentine's day!  I did!
