Welcome!. I live in Oviedo, Florida with my handsome husband, two great kids and a pair of silly basset hounds. Oviedo is a little town where you can get a Barney’s coffee on one corner and have to wait for the chickens to cross on the next. I love to shop for vintage treasures to use in my home and artwork. Come along with me!
I discovered some old receipts in a book I picked up at a rummage sale. What a treat! For a girl like me, this can feel a bit like winning the lottery. This is an old electric bill. I love how it says for your convenience you can come down to the office to pay your bill...so convenient. lol
Here's the front. I do love envelopes and have quite a collection. I just need to find a way to use them in my artwork. I think it is time for a glue book or some collage work.
This one is a tag from a gun store. Not full of sugar and spice and everything nice but it certainly is a beautiful color and it would work well in a more masculine piece. Thought I would share.
Here's another vintage image...a friendship that is nearly 20 years old. Meet my friend Vicki. We were roommates for years and formerly know as "The Vickis." She surprised me with a spontaneous visit, and you can blame her for my lack of productivity in the studio this week! I enjoyed every minute though. She was such a trooper tagging along to three different basketball games, volleyball practice and even helped me host a team party at the house. I can't wait to visit you in wine country soon, Vic. Safe trip home.
As for you my friends, I have some fun things to share this week so stay tuned! Hope all is well. xoxo
