NEW EYES


Walking through the neighborhood...



and seeing things with new eyes again.




Looking for beauty where it can be found.




And finding it!




I'm thrilled to say I sold my Pepsi sign listed on Etsy...



and I'm slowly adding other items...



Like the angel above that I made from found items while in the States.




And possibly a few of my bohemiannie! bags.



I'm posting pictures of this one



to show to my daughter in TX 



to see if she wants it. :)






Create Your Life,




annie!

    1. I have these pictures from last week to post, and stuff to list on Etsy ever since I finished it this morning, and grandbabies to hold and play with, and hubby to hold and play with, and house and cooking...and then the page to BEGiN...but I'm looking forward it!

    1. Thanks Lynn! The cat was HUGE. If I'd been in FL, I may have mistaken him for a panther...and he was chillin on the roof of a house we passed. The bag was pure fun! But then, most art is!

      PS (LOTS of termites here...as evidenced in that roofline).

  3. Love your photos with fresh eyes on the neighbourhood. The chap with the donkey cart looks a little suspicious of you though, or is that his 'I'm cool look'? lol. I'm sure your daughter will want the bag when she sees it, after all her mother's made it :) ybf ann.

    1. Thanks Ann! Most of the time when I snap a picture of the Colombians...they LOVE it, but you're right...this guy was less than excited. :) I hate to say it...but many of them are thieves and don't want to be identified. When we were broken into year before last...it was a donkey cart that got away with the goods. :)

  4. I love the bright colours of your Bag..It looks so happy and cheerful. love to see the photos of your neighbourhood.You are right, often we don't recognise the things around us as beautiful unless we stop to use our eyes. The Donkey looks a bit sad, although most donkeys rarely look happy I guess. Im sure your daughter will love the bag :)

    1. Thanks Morag! I hear them braying - often and always feel sorry for them. We live in an apartment now...but when we had the house and I heard one coming up the hill, I'd go get a carrot or apple for them. I think the owner's thought I was crazy.

    1. Thanks Corrine...I am. The wall mural looks like a peace sign to me. I had never noticed it before - but hadn't been down that street very often either.
