Dust fairy

Dust is a protective coating

It would be foolish to remove it

This tongue-in-cheek saying was my inspiration for this piece. I created it using a reclaimed frame and a digitally reproduced picture of my Great-Grandpa's sister. The picture was taken in approximately 1908.

Raggedy Ann trunk

This weekend, I found this vintage trunk at a moving sale. Fact is, they had 2 and I bought the both of them! They shouted, Buy me! I couldn't wait to get them home and paint them up. Since I love Terrye French's patterns, I chose this darling Raggedy Ann penny rug. I made a few changes to the pattern to make it more "mine". Since I do not have a place to put it OR girls, I took it down to my local consignment store so someone else can enjoy it. I'm still trying to decide what I want to paint on the other one!
