I'm home for the weekend and co-opting the blog to help describe the windows mom and I worked on. While many of you love the final product, it takes a special sort of person to look at rusty bits of metal or unfinished wood and see what kind of treasure they'll turn into.
For this month's windows, my goal was to give a sneak preview of what mom might see in a pile of junk behind someone's barn. The smell of manure fades away (but the actual thing stays on her boots), weeds growing up through the pile disappear, and her eyes see into the future* of that perforated tin and sun-bleached barn siding.
Ok, so -- that might not all come through in a single window display, but it was a fun project!
*I'm partially convinced she can actually see the future.
Who Am I?
I've tried it all..hair stylist/faux painter/stay at home mom/jewelry artist/late in life college student. Through all of those former "careers" I have had one constant passion.. a love of junk, flea markets and creating! It took me 30 years to find the courage do this full time and I have finally settled on what I'm going to be when I grow up!
