Hi All,  it is really windy here today and chilly as well.  Little white caps on the lake today.  It is a day to stay in and work in the studio.  We are picking up our grand daughter tomorrow to stay with us until Saturday.  I am looking forward to it.  She loves to " do art", so will be lots of fun.

I just finished  this last night and wanted to share it.  Old book, old fabric and old photo.  Can't go wrong with that.

I found this little pink coin purse in an antique shop and this is what I did with it.  The rosary beads are the handle so it can be hung up.

I am going to put both of these in my Etsy shop.

Last weekend was the annual Christmas walk here.   Sis and I always go.  We had gone to our favorite shop called Hunt and Gather, purchased some beautiful handmade ornaments and were off to the next shop....we thought.  As we crossed the street the sidewalk had a hump in it and I was gawking at a lovely store front, not paying can guess the rest of the story.  I fell face down onto the sidewalk.  No serious injuries, hit my head, cut the inside of my mouth and skinned up my nose and knee, but did not break either one.  How embarrassing is that?   Sis said I was flat on the ground with both arms out, ah but I did not break any of my new ornaments!  We did finish our shopping after a quick trip to the emergency room, so all was well.

Hugs, Jackie
