WOYWW 147 - Tie Dyed

Well, I have been so inspired by the tutorials at www.theartgirljackie-tutorials.blogspot!  You too can create a tie dyed t-shirt using an easy new method! Colorful sharpies, 91% alcohol, and a Red Solo Cup!  lol   Czech mine out!  I have a feeling even Fritz, who is not the most coordinated guy around, will be able to do this project!  Maybe he'll decide to make a cool Easter gift for Frieda!     Meanwhile, back at the ranch..........hop over and czech out all the wonderful things on the workdesks of others around the world HERE!  Happy Wednesday from Central Texas!

HAPPY BLUE MONDAY - Decorating for Easter

Time to decorate for Easter.  Sally over at www.smilingsally.blogspot.com is sharing some of her cool Easter decorations.  Hop on over and see what she and others are doing on this glorious Blue Monday.

Here's a peek at some of my favorite Easter things. Not only do I have blue things displayed on the table...you will see a Texas bluebonnet oil painting on the wall!  The egg tree is something I've been putting out each year since the 1980's!  The three little porcelain items were china painted by my talented mother-in-law back in the 70's. Happy Blue Monday y'all!

WOYWW 146 - Rodeo Auction Basket

It's going to be a glorious day in the Lone Star State today.  We have more blue skies and very little wind....yaaaahoooo!  Meanwhile, back on the ranch,,,,I am busy working on a gift basket to donate to the local Rodeo Association benefit and auction to be held this weekend.  The candle has been enhanced with some shingalings from my stash and the necklace was also enhanced with a fabulous vintage cowgirl image I found on etsy ( I will share the link in another post~).
The night shirt and note cards bear my original image of a cowgirl and her horse. I'll wrap it all up with rope and stars!  Wonder if Francine and Hunky Jones will be in attendance?? Hunky just might bid on the basket for his honey!  Check out more great Wednesday workdesks HERE !  Happy Trails!

Blue Monday - Blue Skies and Blue Glass

Beautiful blue skies in Central Texas today although VERY windy!  Stepped outside to take these pics and almost found myself gone with the wind!

In the first pic you can see a "cupcake" nestled in a flower pot!  It was painted on a rock by one of the sweet little people who come to visit at my house from time to time.(  FYI: Rock painting is a great way to entertain little people and they love it, too!  ) Here's wishing you a fabulous Blue Monday!  Click HERE to see many more blue things on smiling sally's blog.

WOYWW? Bunnies Bearing Gifts!

Happy Wednesday everyone!  So, what's on your work desk today?  I'm discovering vintage postcards and images of Easter bunnies. Creating with rusted tins and found objects makes my heart sing.  As you can see, broken jewelry and lonely single earrings are also popping up in my art. My motto, "never, never throw away a damaged
piece of bling."  Frieda and Francine are always bringing me bits and pieces of their unwanted jewels and mint tins... and oh how I appreciate their gifts.  Click HERE to see more creations and busy people on WOYWW!

Blue Monday - Galveston, Texas

Happy Blue Monday everyone!  The only thing blue here in central Texas today is the beautiful clear blue sky!  It's a glorious day!  Last week I traveled to the Texas coast and the weather was everything but blue.  It was overcast and foggy during most of our stay in Galveston.  But I did manage to take a few pics of some very unique things including some cool houses and tombstones in the very old cemetery on Broadway.
Old cemeteries intrigue me. I just love to look at the old stones and read the verbage.
