Shabby Chic Tray of Greens!

I love this wooden tray! First of all, it is wood and has these wonderfully worn handles. And it is covered with this textured moire totally psychedelic pattern of flowing flowery greens and blues that manage not to be too loud or obnoxious but rather earthy and match the mossy paint of the wood. It was an incredible find. See my etsy store: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=30199562



S01E12 "Faith".


Oh, it's so wonderful to be able to shop without having to leave my kitchen. I can continue baking AND check out the new shirts down in the Boy's department at the department store. And its all right on my huge kitchen television screen, though not in colour... and I do have to hold this microphone thingy. Maybe one day in the future it will all be wireless. Technology sure is making my life so much easier and everything I need to do for my family just so much more convenient, I mean, geez, it's raining outside and here I am, dry as a bone!


Mid Century Modern Harlequin.

This faux wood plaque has fab texture and is so special with its gold highlights. She's a Harlequin, she is! Check her out at my etsy store: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=31122516

Mad Men Retro.

Love it, love it, love it.


Sharp Flowers.

A detail of the gorgeous flowers on some vintage Johnson Bros. plates I have up on my etsy.com site. I love the way all of the flowers seem to come to sharp points.

Fall in Montreal.

Last October I was lucky enough to visit Montreal. This is some wonderful decorative stonework on a horse trough on Mount Royale.

He Ain't Heavy.

I found a few sheets of these years ago at an antique mall outside Urbana Illinois.


One of the many mugshots I found in a closed police precinct in Buffalo in 2000. The building has since been demolished. Many images were rescued by many people and seen by people who lived in the neighborhood as well, as they were put on display one day in the building for my MFA show.
