SHABBY, CHIC, VINTAGE OR ALTERED HAS BEEN THE ORDER OF MY CREATIVE DAY SINCE 2004... WHETHER THESE BE ON PAPER, VINTAGE JEWELRY, CARDS, FABRIC OR FIBER, I SIMPLY CELEBRATE THESE TOSSED ELEMENTS TO MAKE SOMETHING NEW OR SOMETHING OLD INTO SIMPLY "SOMETHING!"
I CALL THESE MY THERAPY BLESSINGS. ON REALLY GOOD DAYS...I DO A SPRINKING OF SUGAR AND SPICE, WHIMSICAL TOLE, PLUS A DASH OF CREATIVE WRITING, AND AN ETSY SHOP TO BOOT~ BUT THAT IS AN ENTIRELY DIFFERENT BLOG BECAUSE MY MUSE HAPPENS TO HAVE MULTIPLE PERSONALITIES WHICH MAKES ME AN INVETERATE MULTI-TASKER...
SO TODAY... COME ENTER THE ALTERED DOOR AND BROWSE WITH ME...

i lived here for 2 years in 1966
When my dad died in 1966 i was 9 yrs old and his brother, my uncle took us in to live in his house until we could settle my dad's estate
Alfrescoed ceilings of the house
My mom, my brother John and I stayed in a beautiful room where the ceiling was painted by a Filipino artist with vintage designs
I guess I just want to reminisce down memory lane while trying to explain to my muse where she might have come from!
My favorite area was the dining room.
It had a huge Narra wood horseshoe shaped dining table. At the center was a fountain. Today they put foliage coz the plumbing doesn't work anymore. My cousin Zaffy is an artist and I think his art brushed off on me...
