Changing My Space

My oldest daughter made beautiful art from a very old thick piece of broken glass.  I have mounted it with mirror holders and I think it works well here.
My mind is always moving, changing things, "improving" things.  One of my favorite paintings, The Birth of Anubis, has gained some jewelry.  I think it works and if I like it, it's okay.  These are two of my paintings.  I dare not call them art.
I have glued felt on the bottom of my leaf
 to avoid scratching furniture
This was crafted by a local artist using a live leaf...
in concrete...amazing.
I wanted to protect the new paint job on my coffee table.
Yes, you heard correctly...I have painted my coffee table.
I had orb company or I need to clean my camera next.
Oh, the adventures I have!

Using "live leafs" reminded me of the bird bath done in concrete that I have...made at the Garden Club in VA from using plants from my yard. But yours is really fancy!!..:)JP

I love that leaf and that artist is really gifted. the clock made me laugh, whatever is my favorite word that drives bob crazy.
we have found one thing we are not alike in. once i put something in place it stays there for years and years. the things on my walls have been there for 10 years and a few for 20. my furniture still sits where we put it 26 years ago, the sofas changed, the TV changed, but the new is still in the same place. each thing has its place and if bob moves it the least bit, i put it back in the same spot

Your daughter's artwork is pretty. The jewelry is a nice added touch. Isn't great to have creative children. Have a happy day and weekend!

I love reading your posts Gail ... such a great selection.
That leaf is amazing, and I like your daughters art work too.

Wishing you a good weekend ahead.

All the best Jan

Of course it's art! Those are your beautiful creations.
Crafted in concrete using a real leaf. That is rather amazing.

Pretty art, I like anything unusual. The leaf is especially beautiful and one of a kind!!

Everything is art. You know that, though. It is all in our perception.
I do not doubt you may have orb activity. *wink*

I find your eclectic taste so interesting. And it looks like your daughter is quite artistic.

That leaf is beautiful! I have seen rhubarb leaves uses with cement to make bird baths:)

Your entire house is a work of art, Gail, and the yard too! It is an expression of the beauty you see in everyday things and then enhance them with brightness to make you smile. They make me smile too! I like your paintings, and the things you've added, and I'm suspecting that those spirits are curiously watching to see what you will undertake next! I bet your husband is too ;-)

I want to hear you say loud and clear . . .
"This is one of my art pieces . . ."
Because it is ART and YOU . . .

Looks like you are in red mode! I have a lot of red in my house too, which I never thought would happen. I agree with Lynne, by the way. 😊
