Above is stuff I made this week between doing a myriad of other things.
I am entranced with old fashioned ornaments, but don't really know how to make them. The rabbits are my attempts at trying to work with cotton and pipe cleaners. I have actually ordered one by a real folk artist to quell my desire and to use a variety of these for Easter. It won't be here for a week, so I started fooling around with trying my own. Have you ever been impatient and done that?
See the shopping bag? Evidence of how a cluttered mind put stuff together. That bag was sitting there for a week, I think. The cow is a just a wooden figure from a craft store. I just cannot get those belted Galloway cattle out of my head and needed to paint one for a companion.
The little circus book is made from paper bags and has lots of pockets with stuff inside it. My friend and I are trading paper bag books this week. I used smaller bags meant for party favors so the book is about 4 inches square. Eagle eyed readers might recognize the clown on the cover for Edith Flack Ackley's marionette book.
So that's it. Nearly the end of the week and a hodgepodge of stuff in my hodgepodge lodge!
Tomorrow we are starting the weekend early. I think we just might go to the location of the painting in the last post...or somewhere nearby it.
So, happy weekend early!
