Favorite things....


I recently discovered the blog of a wonderful collage artist Actually, she discovered me first... but then I visited her blog, and I found someone across the country with whom I immediately found common ground - isn't blogging just a wonderful way to bring the world together??

Well, one of her recent posts was "Things I love." And it was photos of the fun little chotchkas that sit in and around her when she creates. I think we all have these "things" that just make us smile or somehow stimulate our senses and invite a sense of whimsy into our worlds, so I'm going to share a few of my favorite things... but one at a time, as I'm stretching my blog content here... (actually, I started at work, where I have just a couple of things... next time, you'll see what's in my art room, which is chock full of chotchkas.

I found this teacup at an antique/thrift shop, and it was love at first sight. The handle was broken and glued back on, which made her an incredible bargain. She sits on my windowsill at work holding spare change, and winking at me when I need it. Occasionally, she talks to me, but I've probably share enough with you now!
