Well, the thing has made it through a long hard winter with only one injury. The flange came off the outer surface of the entry hole.
Other than that, I am still pleased and so are the birdies!

so, I am home and my wonderful curtain is up in its proper place...

and because JS chose this project to make for me, she was a huuuuge inspiration to get me off my duff and make one for my other window, where there was just an old towel hanging....

25  Flannel Sunrise in Completed Projects by blupaisan on: March 09, 2017 05:57:51 AM

I was gonna post this in the More Art Less Craft section but to me if felt quite the opposite.... more craft, less art.
So here it is.
I worked on a flannel outfit for a party and had many different colors and bits left over, so decided to follow the fling I have been having lately with collage and use fabric instead.
I stuck to the same basic technique of using watered down glue to fasten it to the canvas, which was yet another Goodwill find that I simply painted over to make blank and fresh.

I fought many times about what should or should not go in the lake or at the edge of the lake. At one point I had a person in a canoe in the middle but nixed it because I liked just the nature aspect with no one around.
The canvas it about 14 by 14 inches.

thanks for looking!!!

26  disolving old makeup so I can haz compact ready for altering in Discussion and Questions by blupaisan on: March 08, 2017 11:29:17 AM

This is one of Mom's old makeup compacts. I have washed it as best I can, using various detergents, toothbrushes, and even boiling water.
I wanna alter it but have no idea how i can deal with the stubborn bits of makeup still embedded in the thing! makeup is super greasy. I even had to throw out the toothbrush after using it.

thanks for any suggestions.

I made some very silly childlike sounds in my car as I opened the box from JoyfulClover yesterday.
This adorable gal popped out of the wrapping and really made me smile.
WTF? She proclaims with a smile on her face.

she is totally poseable which rocks so hard.
Joyful, are the feet painted with the little MaryJanes? it is one of my favorite features.
There is something about her strong back and posture, seen in this second picture, that delights me. She is obviously in her element.

wonderful face.
my favorite color is all over the place here, which makes me happy.
She is very very well made.

thank you so much, JoyfulClover!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
and also thanks for the vintage postcards, I love them.

JS claimed me for a curtain for the wee window in my entry door. I live in a converted camp, just the one door, and not a whole lot of insulation for the cold VT winters!
I am housesitting elsewhere for a bit so cannot show off the probable perfect fit of the curtain, but here it is shown in its beauty here where I am working...

I had material picked out on my Pinterest page and am soooo happy she chose this!
I spend nearly as much time volunteering with kitties as I do working for money.
My left thumb has had numerous surgeries so I cannot manipulate things well at all. This is why I asked for big tabs to make it easy to put the curtain on and move it.

They are so perfectly crafted!
And to boot...

There is some seriously insulated backing on it, that comes off for summer!!! On cold mornings, I take pretty pictures of the ice on the INSIDE of the glass. This insulation will combat the effects of that.

Thank you so very much, JS!!!!!!!  Hugs to you!!

I opened mine from bookstorebabe today and am so pleased with what she made.

I love nature, trees, and of course the sun and moon and all those were in the tin.

here is the sunny side.

the gorgeous lid

and the moon side.
she thoughtfully put in a bag of beads to replace any that fell off during transit but none were needed. It arrived in perfect condition.
I love also that it is large! I am thinking coffee inside, so I get to pop it out of the cupboard each and every morn!
thanks so much, bookstorebabe!!!!
