The Buttons started it. There's a lady who collects them and gives talks about their history and so on. Her collection of 750,000 buttons inspired me to gather some too and start gluing them to other things. That led to mosaic which led to collage which led to mixed media which led to altered books and so forth and so on. Buttons are still fun to play with. These eggs are a few years old, but a couple of new ones are sitting on my work table now along with a button pear! Stay tuned.

Playing with buttons and beads and wire to create bracelets or necklaces. I like using vintage brass wire and findings.

Just when winter had begun to seem unbearable, we found a recipe in Body and Soul magazine for a tincture that claimed to improve energy and mental accuity. This shows it one week into the 4 week process. It is made from Siberian Ginseng or Eleuthero Roots soaked in Vodka (left) or Brandy (right). When the time is right, we will strain off the plant material and bottle the tincture in brown eye dropper bottles to be used by the dropperful 3-4 times a day. I'll keep you posted. . . . .
this is the doll that I found in the yard sale of the house that was out in the country that is wearing the brown shoes that were found at the resale shop in Stillwater OK where my sister works with her friends and the cap that was found in a coffee shop in Council Bluffs IA where I was having a cup with my daughter who bought it for me for my birthday.
