This was my scheduled day for redoing the following mess_


It was a great day for it, as I am slowly being snowed in.

Here is the two final pics... a door that can actually CLOSE now and the innards.




During the process, I made a few discoveries. My best long wooden spoon had made its way from the kitchen to underneath this cabinet. Been missing for about 8 months!
The following pic shows the doll shoe I found  inside. For ONCE I held on to the single one, in hopes I would find the mate. Bingo!  Usually I give up and say something like,  Oh Please, don't bother, you'll never see the mate again, not even after you move!


Below is pictured my sword collection (for making earrings) that I have not been able to locate for ages.

The gorgeous background is a creation made four years ago by  Sparkledust in a swap and is used for covering my sewing machine.


One of the boxes  that hold stash.... I used to wear these Keds shoes! Mom saved the box all these years.

I received my Mixed Media  heart from Smmarrt!!!

I could SMELL it before I even got the first item out of the package. It smelled wonderful and now I am obsessed with finding out what that perfume is.

Here  are my goodies, in the order that they emerged.



a wee project for me to do (I love the hint about a good time to do it) and I look forward to it!!  the art fun, not the snowed in part....


A whole slew of extras, some of which knocked my socks off so they skittered under the sofa. I mean, the vintage image on the card of buttons.   !!!!!!!!!  And a few of these playing cards were not even on my PleaseGimme page on Pinterest but they SHOULD BE!!


ok, now THIS was fun... I read it before opening the actual heart. It was a teaser and a treasure map all rolled into one. So cool!  I adore this idea!!!!!!!!


... and la piece de resistance, the heart.

It is absolutely sweet, adorable, perfect, charming (plus it smells darn good) and it can hang, thank goodness because I have very very little shelf space.
thank you so much, Smmarrt!!!!  I experienced a LOT of smiling whilst opening your package.

LimeRiot chose my turquoise theme (yay for meeeeee!!!)
and sent not one but two gorgeous pieced of artwork


I really like how the feather image is superimposed on the variety of turquoises. 
LR must have stalked me some, and discovered that I adore nature. This feather was an instant hit with me.



Even MORE swoonable.  My computer claims that word to be a misspelling but I like it.
At first glance, I thought the coral was a stamp. Then I looked more closely at the circular white bits and saw they were  hand done, thus the whole thing is. Wait, is that right?  I thought it looked stamped due to the varying hues, as one gets when the stamp hits the page more solidly in places, not in others. If it is hand done, I am impressed!  The subtle and not so subtle differnces are lovely Just beautiful.
thank you, LimeRiot!

As per my to-do list, today I am working on using more of my carrot stash before it goes to the dogs. No joke. the limp ones make great dog treats.

So I am doing baked balsamic vinegar carrots.
without an oven!!

I  turned my cast iron fry pan into a makeshift dutch oven, over a low burner.

first up, toss the roots in the oil and vinegar. this is why I save all of my old dry cereal bags!


Lined my pan with canning rings to keep the product off the bottom


Placed all in tin foil, including my own home grown thyme which has been drying in the spare bedroom since September.
tighten up the top of the foil, add lid.


I am gonna let the whole thing stay on the stovetop til I have to go out for an appointment in a couple of hours. We shall see.....

Oh, let's not forget the sprouting carrot tops that go in shallow water on the windowsill instead of on the compost pile.

Many years ago, one of these grew so high and just from the energy remaining in the root, PRODUCED A FLOWER!!  in the winter!!

Today's thing is about as basic as ya'll can get. Just a couple of stitches at the backs of shirts whose tags are gone. But without this commitment, promised a few pages ago, believe me, they would  NOT have been touched and I would still be cursing in the mornings as I dress.

PerfectlyBohemian,  your striking butterfly creation really jumps off the page. It is so beautiful!!

StudioANF, the crochet piece is wonderful! First time I have ever heard of such a thing. Is it where you add a tapestry effect to an already-completed purse, or do you have to pause in certain times to actually work the newer colors into a piece as you crochet?  The latter would make my hair stand on end.

Acadian Driftwood, I saw your ramen broth recipe in the vegetarian section. Not only does it sound awesomely delicious, but I LOVED the paragraphs and humor you wrote.

Today's completion is my journal cover. here are before and after pics.  It was a dollar special at Goodwill so there is some slight marking on it but I don't care, as it is gonna get dirty at my place over the years anyway. It is all sharpie work.

My Valentine ATC project is completed. I finished while half-watching a documentary on ghosts, which seems fitting with my theme!

I am just gonna cut and past the info from where I posted on the holidays board...

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Valentine's Day is no longer about romantic encounters for me, I would rather snuggle with my kitties and mail heartsappy cards to my best friends.
But it is a time for me to reflect on all the bad choices I have made over the years in men and I decided to artwork it up.

I have this game where when I get to know someone and they keep saying the same things over and over again, I remark that the phrase should end up on their gravestone.

So, here are six cards representing six guys from the past 30 years.















The names have been changed to protect the innocent.

I am too pooped to improve upon the washed out pics. You get the idea!!

Charcoal pencil mostly with a touch of watercolor because of course I had to add the obligatory Valentine hearts.
