Dump Jewels on a Wednesday - WOYWW - 168

 More great stuff for my art!  I've been dump digging lately! Once you try it you'll be hooked...well, that is,,,,if you like junkin' and thriftin'!  It's like a treasure hunt for me. Yesterday I found some "jewels" just laying on top of the ground.  We had a rain shower here in Central Texas over the weekend and the rain washes the dirt and dust from the broken pieces of china and glass and makes them easier to find.

Of course, my favorite piece is the broken vase with the swirlies! It will probably end up in one of my mixed media assemblage pieces of art work.  The marble is pretty cool, too!  Always makes me smile when I find a marble,,,indicates children lived nearby.

And then I just wanted to show you the pals who roam across the road !  This little piggy runs with the horses and provides us with entertainment every evening.
So, there you have it...that's what's on my workdesk this happy Wednesday.  To see what others all around the world are HERE and see Julia's blog!
