Summer Wreath

Here is my newest summer wreath made by Bernideen at Bernideen Tea Time Cottage . At my yard sale this last Friday Bernideen and her husband stopped by and she noticed my huge now turned summer green my white big some people call them snowballs however they are a type of hydrangeas.

Anyway she said cut me some and I will make your a wreath if you want one, well of course I wanted one

Oh and she made it just overnight,I talked with her Saturday and she said bring me one more extra large bloom and i can finish your wreath. I  went right out and cut one and went over and watched her cut this huge bloom and hot glue it on a natural grapevine wreath.

I just love the color and how she made it

Here is the artist Bernideen in pink  and me in her tea room and art room

She has really been a treasure to meet and keep me inspired to keep working with treasures creating works of art

Vintage Flatware

On my last trip to Hyde Park New York my friends and I took a tour to the Culinary Institute of America and had a wonderful lunch there.
Out on the grounds was a wonderful fish statue and from a distance was just a fish. However when you got up close to it wow it was made out of old silverware really amazing to me

It is 12 foot long sturgeon made out of 700 knives 400 forks and 600 spoons took the artist 300 hours to complete. Eyes were made out of glass. I couldn't get a complete picture with my iphone. This is one of the fins pictured below
 It was very impressive and fun to see named Old Diamondsides by John F Sendelbach
 Wonder how he accumulated all the vintage flatware? maybe went to lots flea markets?

It was quite the place to visit , I went with my friends from Long Island Terry and Loriene

It is so hot here that I am just coming home from work and staying inside, I have been watering my flowers either after sundown or 6 am. I am planning a nice relaxing weekend inside maybe eating a quart of ice cream LOL

Studio Stuff

Well we had a good 4th July and then it rained most of the 5th so that was good for my flowers and everyone else flowers.

I am really still trying to declutter by eliminating stuff in my studio and have passed lots on to others however still more to find another home for.

I was remembering when I bought this very old basket at an auction years ago. An elderly lady had died and family was eliminating  her old treasures and I brought this basket home . It's a very close up picture not showing it's actual size of about a peck

Isn't it just awful when you're cleaning out a room you make such a huge mess? or anyway my rooms i'm cleaning are a mess. A friend came over to help me change out a room size rug in my bedroom and I was really worried about all the dust and and dust bunnies that would be seen but just one little bunch of cat fur came blowing across the floor LOL

I'll be off in a couple weeks so I hope to have time to finish up all my rearranging
