treasure hunt / treasure chest


Again it was a busy day of preparing for the show I feel I have let the blog post slide somewhat lately because of it. I guess we all have these days were it's difficult to find the words to post - I've had several. I just feel a need to post every day - like if I miss a day I won't be able to get back on track. So I'm posting a photo of some things I gathered from the yard today (part of my treasure hunt of interesting textures and berries, etc for my art) and that's all I've got. / i wore your old mermaid necklace today - it's the coolest thing. finding treasures in people's so-called trash has always been a love of mine. whenever i wear this necklace that i found when rummaging through mom's old jewelry (along with my famed panda), i never cease to be complimented. i'll always have a love for the lost - finding use for something that has seemingly been forgotten. and speaking of mermaids - i was thinking i might want to read "the mermaid chair" since i enjoyed "the secret life of bees" so much. does anyone know anything about it - is it good?

That mermaid necklace is fantastic. It reminds me of some sketches by Artist called Leah Piken Kolidas I saw recently on her blog

She has some really wonderful prints in her store there that I am going to pick up for my daughter for Christmas

I absolutely adored "The Secret Life of Bees", but I couldn't even finish "The Mermaid Chair." It did not near live up to her first. Have you seen the movie yet?
