Here's one of my latest and funnest piece I've done in a while. It started out as a red antique Welsh clock case. I added one of the little dolls, Molly, I like to put together and she's taking a ride on a wonderful Boston Terrier. Molly's ready for anything with her umbrella and package of flowers for her good friend, Lolly, who's been a little under the weather lately. Up top is a framed piece of one of Basic Grey's fab new papers with a little 3-D flowers and antiuqe photo. Topped off is a silk ribbon and a tag that came on one of my recent prizes from Character Constructions. It wasn't even an official prize, it was the tag on one of the rolls of paper I purchased. Bonus!!
Some new party pics from our Frederick location at Emporium Antiques. After quite a dry spell of us neglecting the space we have averaging a couple of trips a week there to spiff things up and keep it fresh and exciting~and boy is it! I highly recommend checking it out in person. Frederick is a very cool town with no shortage of fab places to shop and eat. It's a great girlfriends' field trip.

Waxing Poetic...

Here's my youngest son, Matt, who just recently turned 10, acting as Steve Irwin at the wax museum exhibit at school today. He's got total control over this bad croc-Crikey mate!
Okay, here's the ring leader, Ms. Jones, total spitfire, teacher extrodinaire and Matt's favorite. His math teacher, Ms. Ritchie is a real close tie. Anyway, Ms. Jones pulls no punches and takes no prisoners but makes learning fun. She's every bit energitic enough to keep so many fourth graders enjoying staying in line.
So the scenario for today's event at school was that the wax museum was coming for an exhibit for the school. There was a heat wave and all the wax figures melted. The fourth graders had to step in and work in their stead. It was a great event. Parent were welcome and each of the other grades had a chance to visit the library to observe the statures. Each statue was outfitted with a button to push so as to hear the "recorded" historical information for each character. It was pretty darn cool.
