Just Right

aaaah, my banner looking a little better today. Yesterdays gave me a headache, sorry about that. Here's my latest. I left the sugar bowl with the "just right" amount of tarnish.
I found that I had 3 of the most perfect shell buttons. 3 different sizes, and the color...just right! Look at the edge on the silver sugar bowl.
going through my stash I found these pearl earrings... oh they are "just right
The vintage flowers, after tweeking the color with a few colors of Glimmer Mist, I got the color "just right"can you see the sparkles that Glimmer Mist adds?? I even added a bit to the green leaves. A friend of mine invited me to bring my birds to sale at her party. So, I'll be pulling my birds out of Etsy next week for a few days.

Laurie, You'll probably sell every one of them at the party! There won't be anything left for etsy! You'll have to start burning the midnight oil to restock! ;-)

Laurie, Thanks for posting on my blog. The crazy quilt piece will be made into a cellphone/digital camera tote. I live in Pennsylvania, in the mountains, 'way up in the north central part.

I love your art!
