White Wednesday Dreams

I'm like most of you...a bit tired of this heat and summer.

I'm dreaming of a fall day to sit outside and smell the leaves.

In the meantime, my studio will have to suffice.
Creating and snapping photos fill my weekends and some evenings.

Mixing vintage finds with painted white finds and French fabric flowers.

A gorgeous shabby heavy wrought iron cross
given to me by a good friend on my birthday.

Hanging out with friends never gets old.

The ooh la la of finds
from Corey Amaro's French antique shop here
French religious medals that I bought to use in my art
but I just can't part with them yet.

And finally....
sharing a website that is free and fun to use
a photo editor site that alters your images in so many ways,
including collages. 

Happy White Wednesday Everyone!
I hope you enjoyed this little post of my desk shots.
You never know what will end up on my desk
but a mess sometimes is a perfect vignette.
