WOYWW 193 - Valentines and Vintage Handkerchiefs

What's on my work desk today?  Too much junk and stuff to show you because you might get scared!  But I will give you a peek of what I've been creating for the Little Darlings.  The past couple of days I've been going through my stash of hearts, glitter, glue, paper and doilies and came across these sweet vintage handkerchiefs.

Don't you just love this one that says "To My Dear Wife"?  Probably given as a Valentine or perhaps mailed from a far away place during WWII!  I can just feel the love!

Happy Fat Tuesday everyone!  In keeping with a Mardi Gras theme, you will see I've been busy with my art piece titled "Basin Street" honor of one of my favorite jazz songs!   (We learned to play that piece when in high school band many years ago and oh what fun we had!)

I used a combination of colored pencils, collage elements, and acrylic paint.  The ruffle on the parasol is a crumbled up dress pattern!  Go out an have yourself some beignets or king cake today.Enjoy and let the good times roll!

Buttermilk Pie on this BLUE MONDAY

Howdy folks!  We had a quick glimpse of the sunshine today but for the most part it has been a cold, blue Monday here in central Texas.  A perfect day for making Buttermilk Pie!  Yummy! 
While the pie was cooling I did a little sketching and doodling and thought I'd share my creation with y'all.

The dripping paint at the bottom of the sketch sort of describes the kind of day we've had....drippy and bleak!  But we certainly welcome the rain and moisture around these parts.   That's all for now!  Have a fabulous week and in the meantime check out more Blue things HERE on Sally's blog.
