Peaceful studies of cream with black.

Closeup of the base of a nest assemblage I made...using a vintage tape measure for interest, contrast, and the element of the unexpected.

Detail of the c.1892 carved house gable hanging over my mantle.

My favorite shell against the texture of an old dictionary that long ago lost its cover.

A stack of old sheet music, some of it dating to the late 1800's, acquired when a local music school closed.

I liked her then.

I like her even more now. I found this dress form a week or so ago. I liked her...but I wasn't too wild about her color so I stripped off her cover yesterday. Now I LOVE her!
