loose ends...

I've been busy...there are many loose ends I have been wrapping up...and I have contacted a bad case of spring fever cleaning. My studio looks like such a mess...and I have 3 projects in progress on my table. And...only I can do it or I won't be able to find anything.

Loose end 1:
I have been meaning to post this rowdy awesome necklace made by my friend Deb Trotter.
It was such a surprise when I received it as a gift from Deb...and I love the cowgirl spirit she embraces in her art.
Deb has also written a short article on the Artsmiths site. Check it out when you get a minute.
I was out and about the other day and the traffic was absurd. Where are all those people going? Ahhh LA...so busy all the time...but...I took a shortcut past my old house...the one I lived in over 26 years ago...and I had to stop and look at the House of Fleurs....I planted alot of those rose bushes and over the years they have gone fantastically wild. You can hardly see the house from the explosion of roses. and I was thrilled to see that who ever lives here now has nurtured those roses as one can see.
I loved this house...but once Becca was born it just was too small...and so we moved to a house we love. But I could not stop myself from reflecting on the good times I had in this home. It was a charmer...

Well back to work...sorting and cleaning and organizing and finishing up those looming deadlines.
I should take a note from Peyton...next life I think I will come back as a sheltie.

Wow, that house IS charming! It's like right out of a fairy tale. I didn't know rose bushes grew into trees. They are very beautiful. If I were a bird, I'd build a nest in one. lol.

Those necklaces are cute. I love ball chain necklaces.

Is Peyton laughing? lol.

You have a Sheltie! I recently got a Sheltie Puppy his name is Cody. He is the smartest dog I have ever had but he is a little poo poo machine! LOL that is the one thing he can't seem to get. He loves to get into all my stuff, I have had to rearange my art room just so he doesn't get hurt. I love your art you are very talented but I guess you know that. LOL humor me.

Springing into tying up loose ends myself. It feels like the load lightens, like the freshness of the new season. I enjoyed my visit with you here today, as well as the great article by Deb.
Creatively Yours, Laura

What a charming house!! I understand all about being nostalgic for the memories of a house. I have the opportunity to buy my little house where my family lived when I was born. I was all ready to leave it back then when I was 10 because that's the only place I had ever lived and I was excited for someplace different. I want it back now because of all the happy childhood memories and to have a chance to decorate it like a little cottage.
