Belting one back!

 I have this concha belt that I have had for years. I still love it but it doesn't fit anymore. I had tried having belts lenthened at the shoe repair store at minimal success and too much expense. For this belt I decided to cut off the buckles and glue (using shoe-goo) the original belt to another larger belt.

Voila! Worked like a hot darn.

Now go check out what they are doing at Visible Monday:

OOh! and don't forget Plaidurday:

I'm going to wear this....

Bruce and I went to the Sandpoint, Idaho Draft horse and Mule show. It is a great horse event.

I bought raffle tickets on Emmaline, a lovely yearling mule. Bruce is giving her pointers on how to be STUBBORN.

Flying Tunes

This was a commission I just finished. I am rather pleased with it. I must learn to photograph better because the painting is much nicer than the photo. I thought my lovely model took on a legendary aspect becoming goddess like.

Ah, color

 An older painting based on my daughters when they were small.

“The purest and most thoughtful minds are those which love color the most. ” (John Ruskin)

Well said, go Rushkin!

Question Do you ever dream that your teeth are falling out and what do you think it means?

Liking lagenlook

I like the lagenlook style. I don't have the money to buy some of the really cool outfits so I am trying to make some components. I altered a Butterick pattern B5045. I had to take in the front by about 2 inches. I also scooped out the hemline. I like the big baggy pockets. I was hunting for a) my tripod to take the photo and b) my necklace to fill in the neckline and wasn't able to find either! Sometimes, I swear I am living in a Bermuda triangle like vortex. The more I want to find something, the more apt it is to just disappear. (Note to self, take the time to put on a little make-up, you look rough!!) If you check out my "I like Lagenlook" board at pinterest, you will see what I am aiming for.
