Autum Wreath

My friend Doug asked me to make
a wreath for his door, I've made him a couple.
His wife left the brown velvet and a soft peach
bow on it. Now I think I'll have to take them off
and add a bow myself...
I used 3 cat tail (bull rushes), added a bit of gold on the tips.
Then 3 long seed pods I found. I just happened
to some fall leaves I'd bought. I painted milk pods
2 different oranges and put gold dots on them..
I also painted some silver dollors a bright orange
then put copper sparkle dots on those
It definetly need a new bow.. Posted by Picasa

Poster Is Done

Well I finally finished it, I can't seem to get a good pic of it, its quite large and shiny.. I made a few coffee beans out of polymer clay and painted them to add to the string at top.. In the left hand corner it says reciepe for comfort a piece of cake, I added the name of the cafe along the left hand side, its on the coffee filter so looks like the writing on a coffee bean bag . I'm pleased how it turned out.. Now to see if I can sell it to the cafe owner. If she likes this one I will do a couple more for her cafe.. I don't have a clue how much to sell these posters for ( never having sold anything before, not counting the rust for my DS)..
If you have any ideas I would gladly appreciate them..
Its 2 1/2 ft by 3 1/4 ft.. Posted by Picasa

Today was a beautiful fall day, maples are turning, the air is cool and fresh, so Jan and I went
a few miles out of town to try to get
some pics of the coos.. They are hardly any here:(:(:(
I have been trying to get these a long time.
When I showed the pics on my camera
to Jan's DD she didn't even know what
they were.
The have been out in the back field
all summer, in the fall they bring them
in ..
I was so excited, I love them so much,
reminds me of the highlands in Scotland.
I finally got some good ones, this might be boring
for some of you (Sandy eyes rolling I see ya).
If not please click on the pics to see them large
they are Beauties my Coos...
Today was a grrreat day....

A Budding Artist

When I got home I took
pics of this Ladies art work.
Over the Last 2 yrs the people
who owned my apt. building
have cut down 5 fir trees in
front of my building GRRRR.
They also didn't plant any flowers
this yr, so a lovely Lady name Joan
who lives here too, made some
art pieces from Nature to spruce up the
front. I told her they were great and she
was a good artist, she was very shy and
thanked me. I also told would take some
pics and put it here to show you.. Posted by Picasa
