Green is the Theme!

Last week, Theme Thursday's challenge was to make something featuring the color green. I guess they are way ahead of me, as the new challenge is already posted, and it's still Wednesday where I live! Anyway, I painted a canvas with acrylics, then decoupaged part of a pretty napkin I'd saved from a Paper Whimsy order onto the front. I then added the little girl, which came from Lisa's Altered Art. I finished with a few antique buttons, some glitter, some old lace, a green crystal, and there you have it!

The past 2 weeks Gothic Arches has had an open theme, and I am coming in on the tail end of this one, but finished an arch that I'd been too late for when the theme was the Mona Lisa. I scanned this one, so the red crystal on her mouth doesn't show up well, but, for better or worse, here is my humble offering this week . . .

Tag Tuesday Challenge #56-"Men"

Finally, finally got something done besides housework, yard work, mom-work, grandma-work, etc. I found this old tintype photo in a box and a page from an old book, and thought those would fit the bill for this week's tag challenge. Please hop on over to Louise's Kard Krazy blog to see this week's wonderful tags!

Lily and Layla

I shamelessly pilfered these photos from my daughter-in-law's Facebook post; the last time I saw these little ones was four months ago--I miss them so much! Grandchildren are such a gift!!!!!

I Left My Heart in San Francisco . . .

A few days ago, I took my 81 year-old mother to our favorite city, and we walked on the Golden Gate Bridge. Although I've driven across the bridge many, many times, the last time I was there on foot was almost 40 years ago when a girlfriend and I roller-skated across the bridge...we were 18...fond memories!
