Winter Landscape/Shades of Blue was the challenge offered by Created Byhand this week. So here it is... I've got the winter blues.These are my original photographs and, as you can see, Hazel has made her appearance while singing the blues. Think she's looking forward to some warmer weather, too.

Take a Word Challenge. Didn't know where I was going with it, just seemed to fall together. Art is funny like that. LOL! Anyway, it is so true, what is life if you don't open that door and soar... Get out there and fly!
Friday Foto Collage supplied the lovely floral background for this project. Makes we want to go out and dig in dirt. I altered the background and added some of the flowers from last years garden as well as one of our fountains and a little nursery rhyme to boot. Now I'm ready for spring!!!
Collage Obsession. Thanks for such a great old photo to work with.

Quilts and Stitching are not my "thing" but my mother and grandmother found their artistic talents there. This is a clock I painted for my mother for Christmas 2009 to hang in her sewing room. It is painted on the wooden top of an old cardboard powdered milk container... (I think that's what it was, the cardboard part still serves as a wastebasket in my workshop.) It's about 12 inches across, so it made a nice size clock. This my entry in the Created by Hand challenge. Thanks for looking.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Art Creations Friday. The images (less of course, Mr. Time) were collected from the site, e-vint. lots of good images there for use.

This is my first attempt at Steampunk. The challenge was issued by Sunday Postcard Art. Click on this link and look at all the awesome entries submitted for this postcard challenge. Wow!! Lots of talented artists out there.
I used some more of my found goodies for this one. Had an old pocket watch 'frame', my husband's grandfathers playing cards, and the old chain from a lamp. Always fun to use old goodies in new projects. Thanks for looking.

I found this old window screen and painted it, added an old pair of shutters and built a flower box out of old barn wood. I placed it on the side of our shed to give it some personality and charm! The geraniums looked pretty all summer long! The quote at the top says, "Joy is not in things, it is in us." I believe that is from Richard Wagner. And how true that is.. happiness comes from within!!!

This challenge was presented by 4x4 Fridays, here's the link check it out and get ready to participate!
Dreams can slip right through our fingers if we don't grab them and hold on tight. So...
Look to the sky full of DREAMS, hope and love. Life is for fulfilling your DREAMS. Don't let them float away!
Above is my entry for the I have a Dream challenge from the Created By Hand Challenge.
- We live on the family farm in Mid-Missouri with our kids and animals. I love to make anything... and using repurposed items is the BEST!!! I like 'junk' as other people refer to it, but that 'junk' has a history and claims new life in many of my projects. Building primitive furniture, painting, writing, photography, stained glass... guess I'm what you'd call a jack of all trades... trying to master some. LOL! Anyway, if you have old barns or buildings with loads of junk you'd like to clear, give me a holler. I might just find myself in your neck of the woods!
