I have had this for a long time.. but now it is time to let it go. And hopefully to someone that can use it and appreciate it.
It is a vintage box full of old lace and doilies and ribbons.
I love the photo on the top of the lid.
See it and my other listings here

This was a prompt from my awesome sketchbook yahoo group.
If you were in the circus, what would you be? I thought of it for a while and I wanted to be the gypsy fortune teller. With tents, pillows, long scarfs, crystal balls etc..
I went through my images and took out the ones that spoke this to me. After I had them all out, I found I had too many for one page, so I did a 2 page spread.
I love how everything came together and invokes the mood and what I was trying to make.
Oh, how did Johnny get in here? I suppose I would let him share my circus tent. Especially if he's bringin that piano. I could use some music in there. :)

I love jigsaw puzzles...
Just finished a good one. Springbok (the best!) and an octagon shape covered in all kinds of postage stamps.
Isn't that a great feeling when you get done?

"Lace" uploaded to etsy today. I had fun with this - I started with paint and then layered dressmakers tissue over it. After it had dried I could "see" a woman figure in the folds of the tissue so I painted her out!
I added a piece of vintage lace to her dress and a necklace of beads, with a vintage book page of lingerie laces attached too.

I got my copy of the infamous flea market style magazine! I ended up getting it from Sue at VintageRescuesquad and she was sweet enough to ship to Canada.
I have just flipped through it and it looks wonderful. FULL of photos and not many ads.
Here is some peeks for you...
ahhh, now to sit in the sun this weekend and take my time looking through this.
