I got this antique French postcard online. I didn't realize how pretty it would be until it arrived from Quebec. I just love it! It reminds me of some of the beautiful mixed media creations I have been delighting in out here in blogland...only it's 70 years old or so. I thought it would be a lovely contribution to Pink Saturday, don't you agree? Hope you had a chance to work off your turkey by power shopping on Black Friday so now you can enjoy the rest of your weekend! And while you're recovering, pop on over to Bev's at How Sweet the Sound. She hostesses this event each and every Saturday and it's a lot of fun to see what everyone comes up with.
I am a wife, mother, mosaic artist, microbiologist,antique dealer,and gypsy soul living in the beautiful state of Colorado. My life keeps me busy, but happy.
My sons entertain and inspire me with their energy and joie de vivre. Sometimes, being a middle aged mom, they wear me out, but I've never regretted one moment we've been together.
In 2004, my son, who was 4 at the time, was diagnosed with acute lymphocytic leukemia. He had to undergo over 3 years of chemotherapy to get better. I'm happy to report that he is doing well, but the experience was life changing. I realized that "someday" is a luxury that not everyone will get to enjoy. So, with a new paradigm, I have embarked upon the artistic journey that I dreamed of doing SOMEDAY. I love making mosaic art, selling antiques, and dreaming of that beautiful, antique, French inspired space, with lots of glamour, grace, and, of course, a healthy dose of Legos on the floor along with a little Army man or two. This is, after all, reality! Live your dream, but keep it real.
