I was busy today!
I made copies of some of my grandmother's letters that she wrote to my mom in her native Greek (!) When I was at Mom's and going through things, I found so many of those letters. Originally, I thought I would just use the "real things".....but after thinking about it, I realized that it might be better to copy them. Of course, I have no idea what they say, except when she put in words that did not translate to Greek - like the names of my brothers and me - but it is wonderful to have that little part of her still around......and to get to use them in the things I am really loving to make. I think she would enjoy that.
Here is a house, in process. Somehow, the printer was running out of ink and the color of the paper is almost lavender. I decided that, perhaps my friend, Penny, would like some lavender houses for their lavender festival. I will try to show them to her over the weekend. I love the subtlety.......
Another house, with a few more windows AND a little bit of lavender, too, over the door. It is unfinished, but still pretty cool. I think the roof will really make it great! (I'll share it when it's done)
I also got a little bit of soldering in. I must be better at practicing it.
Just got an invitation to go to a soldering workshop with my friend, Julie Haymaker (juliehaymaker.blogspot.com). She is going to one in Southern California at the end of the month http://www.terribrushdesigns.com/San-Diego-Art-Workshops.html
I will be in France! But, I told her that I would gladly join her another time.........
Check it out, though, if it is something that interests you. It looks pretty fantastic!
