“And above all,
watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you,
because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places.
Those who don't believe in magic will never find it.”
― Roald Dahl

Circus Time!

It's time for the moonlight party under the big top!
I painted a canvas just for this special occasion...I call it Magaly and Celeste.Looks like they're leading us straight to the circus, leaving a trail of roses and glitter in their wake!
Thank you to bliss angels and Tabby's place for hosting this magical event and for inspiring me to create. see you soon!

Altered Witch Shoe and It's Fall!

It's Autumn & I've got my altered witch shoe all ready.

I used an old boot...but it was low so I stuck an empty tin can in it and added duct tape to the toe to make it pointy...

Then I covered the whole thing in a layer of white glue and decoupaged paper onto it.

The rest fell in place and now I'm ready to skip over to Frosted Petunia's and see what's kicking:)

Have a Happy weekend.

Halloween Gifts

Don't you just love getting gifts?Especially for no good reason?Especially if they're halloweenish??
My niece gave me these adorable salt & pepper shakers!!!they're magnetic, so Mr. vampire sticks to Mrs. vampire's neck.
These hand sanitizers smell so good!from my daughter) and the bat's eyes light up so you can use it as a flashlight!

My sister bought me this incredibly yummy coffee, it's PERFECT for this time of year.

Along with this gorgeous cup to drink it from..

Then, on Sunday a wonderful new friend treated me to lunch, I brought home an empty soup container....

and I turned it into a centerpiece...

which I will give away soon:)

It's like Christmas around here...except it's spooky, hahaha
Thank you to everyone that sent me get well wishes..it worked!
Have an happy weekend!!!

blah blah blah

Did everyone have a fun holiday weekend?
I had a lot of things planned, starting with dusting and clearing out the shelves in my little studio:)

I love finding treasures stored at the back of the shelf, then forgotten, it's like a gift to yourself, lol!

I found a lot of my empty perfume bottles and cleaned them up...I always save them, sometimes I turn a few of them into dolls.(but that's another post)

my tiny inspiration board

everything was going according to plan...gorgeous sunsets perfect for barbeque's

brushes and pens were organized, clean canvases ready for anything, felt & yarn set to be turned into fantastical creatures...
and boom!

Nothing! I couldn't think of anything to paint or sew or keep my interest... not even reading or eating...

turns out I caught that nasty end-of-summer cold:(

So I spent the majority of the weekend here,
in my candy sprinkled bed, fluttering my iridescent blue wings gazing out at a luscious
full moon,

whilst reclining on a cupcake pillow.


I guess that was the fever talking, But either way,
I'm feeling a little bit better now

and hopefully I'll have some goodies to share with you later this week.

See you soon,
