Wow! It's been a couple of days... hope all's well!




Silly doodles and dreaming of Paris.... :) I've always had a fascination with antique rod iron... fences, gates, whatever.... if it's old, black, ornate and rusty, I love and simply want to have it! There's just something very striking about the metalwork, in my eyes. Whenever I stumble across a wonderful piece of ornate iron~ which is very often in this historic small town that we live in, I take a photo so that I can scribble those same wonderful lines later on. Although, at times, I've even been caught "camping out" across the street with my sketchbook... *giggles* I enjoy the detail so much! I'm actually working on my next tattoo....ironwork. Go figure.

The quartet of mini frames....Oh, La La!!! These small ~sillies~ along with a few other goodies will be going to the shop~ I read that comment, Melissa... no worries! :) Very simple and sweet~ I just had to get Halloween out of my head real quick. There will be plenty of time to work on the ghoulish. I'm trying really hard to hang on to the last little bit of summer that we have left! Yes, it's still pretty hot, but I cannot be thinking black and orange already! That'll come soon enough... Hugs!

So with you on the hanging on to summer. I think if it would get a bit cooler I could get into fall/Sept apples etc. But I'm good with summer and flowers and light and airy as it is in the 90's and HUMID!!! I really hope September brings us some nicer weather! (Halloween is fun though!!!)
Hugs, Lisa

Hi sweetie!

LOVE the ironwork...in the front windows at my shop (Yaya) I have a beautiful iron fence with fleur de lis. Of course, I painted mine "teal" because it helps "draw" the ladies into the shop! :)

Have a beautiful & creative week...and all that yaya lovin'! xo...deb

Oh those sketches are incredible, you are truly gifted. I would love to sketch but I don't have the blessings of coming up with any off the top of my head. They truly are wonderful.

Have a blessed day.
