Every now and then I make something for me. And with spring in the air I am re-arranging and re-decorating the house. It is hard to find my certain style of what I have in mind to set the stage for my house so most of the time I make my own decor. So while out shopping for finds at the local antique shops and thrift stores (I can spend hoooours in when I have the time)I came across a bargain table with little nick nacks . So a little 80's style wall mask and a small brass candlestick holder caught my eye and I picked them up for about 75 cents.

Funny How 75 cents could turn into such a dark and lovely piece of art !

I painted the mask black and added accents of gold paint and feathers with black and gold roses.

I then glued the mask on to the candle stick and attached a small clay bat to it that I had made a few months back for a gift box , added tulle and ribbon and topped the bat with an old anitque style clip on earring.
Yes every now and then I make something for me and this one I am definately keeping upon my parlor mantle.

OMG!S ince December?..Really it's been that long without a post?? ! My how times flys by! And how very, very, sorry I am for dropping the ball on my blog ! Here I go again though :)

I have created a few dolls and things since then but not as much as I would like . I was on a creative hole I would say for loss of my little muse who always came through with some wonderful ideas. "Oh where, oh where have you gone? !!!"

So lately I have been piddling here and there in my spare time of not working on the business of VMB and well here are two new creations now listed on Ebay .

I looove how both turned out !

I am in a dark whimsy kind of mood ever since I came back from vacation . I guess going back home to visit the family just gave me so much great joy that the Texas sun must have shone on me a bit to long and illuminated the halls of my dark heart that now I can't help but to think on a little bit different note for my art themes, like sweets and crowns and birds. I guess all artist go through transitions and phases that makes their work evolve from one thing to another . Why keep it the same all the time right ? Well eigther way I hope you enjoy the newbies so drop by and take peek !
