Webster says a harbinger is one sent before to arrange for lodgings or a forerunner; precursor.  Well, that is the title of this aqua blue creation of mine featuring parts of broken bottles bearing messages.  I really enjoy digging through old dump sites to find treasures to use in my art.  ( I hope Fritz didn't drink the contents of all these bottles.) This particular piece found a good home with creative CANDY in the Texas hill country. Check out other Blue Monday items by clicking on the word BLUE!  Happy Monday, y'all!

Blue Chandelier

Ah! This blue chandelier would look great swinging from the rafters on the patio!  Add a few candles for a romantic glow on a warm summer evening!  Fritz and Frieda would certainly enjoy a cozy candle light dinner with light beverages and bread pudding for dessert!  Perhaps Francine and Hunky Jones would be invited as well.  They so love soirees of that nature!  I'm sure Francine would wear her new flowing organza frock she purchased on a recent thrifty trip!

Thrifting is one of my favorite hobbies! It relieves stress and helps add more junk to my stash of goodies. Husband just loves this part!  lol    Today I hit the jackpot and found lots of vintage linens to use in my fabric collage.  A couple of weeks ago I hit it big with the treasure load of vintage snow houses and miniature bottle brush trees. The houses are stamped "Japan" on the bottom and are so fragile. I'm guessing they were manufactured in the 1950's.  I just can't wait to display the little village with the tiny plastic deer next year!  Oh yes,,,did I mention we were celebrating my friend's birthday at our favorite Goodwill entity?    Enough for now....gotta go create for "Beneath the Blue."
