Beth's mosaic guitars

I often think the whole world is super creative at some point and time. These guitars are done by my buddy (many many years now) Beth. We were comrads in mischief when we worked at the dental school. The things we got into when the students were off. She has had these guitars on display locally at a gallery near her home. I have only seen her mosaics by emails since I haven't seen Beth since one of the art shows I happened to be in. Time sure flies! Beth you have always had the best smile,I can see it now granny. Great Work Beth!

Collaged christmas balls

Every year I make a new ornament for the tree. These are some of my old ornaments I made in the past. The tree is decorated and hanging on the wall,yes hanging...found an ideal tree in a catalog that hangs from a hook on the wall,a half tree. My dad was years ahead of himslef,he thought this idea up years ago when we called him the grinch. It makes perfect sense in a smaller house. The tree takes up no floor space.
I made a couple ornaments this year as gifts and one for my tree. Went to my favorite mall for train displays,a yearly event. What a fabulous display at Kenilworth,a small but favorite mall. Found an ornament in a shop there I just had to get. It took me an hour to decide since they reminded me of Cirque de Soliel(?)sp. Each ornament was amazing. My trees are eclectic like my home is,nothing is a set. I must admit that was one "set" I could have bought if each one wasn't in the ten dollar range. What a fun day my friend and I had watching trains and kids eyes as they watched the trains. That was the best part of the holidays.
