Loading Up The Wagon

This girl, and her good-best friend, Janice, are heading to Art Is You Santa Rosa in just a couple of days.

Let the BIRTHDAY fun begin.

We'll be road-tripping our way down the 101 with a list of thrifts along the way.

Packing lightly and putting the back seats down, making room for treasures!

We are taking two classes this year. A Finnabair class and a Jen Crossley class.

Looking forward to catching up with old friends and meeting new ones too.

This is one of the projects I made last year in a class taught by Lesley Venable. I shopped locally in Petaluma for a little box to fit in an old wooden drawer I brought along with me. Lesley provided the burnt-out Altoid box. It always helps to bring along a mix of doo-dads even when the workshop has a kit fee. It just makes it your own. No one in this workshop went home with two of the same finished projects. Those are the workshops I like best!

This piece is titled Frozen Dead.

I love how it turned out. I even LOVE the CREEPY poetry.

She wore a pair of mittens,
She wore a little blouse,
She wove all night.
In the still, cold house,

She sang as she worked,
And the harp-strings spoke;
Her voice never faltered,
And the thread never broke,
And when I awoke, --

There sat my mother
With the harp against her shoulder,
Looking nineteen,
And not a day older.

A smile about her lips,
And a light about her head,
And her hands in the harp-strings,
Frozen dead.
