Feeling a bit crummy today...
Pollen is in full swing here now,
Of course I managed to come up with a few finds
before the pollen took me down...
Nifty Vogue sewing patterns for .50 cents a piece
Southern belle figurine $4.00
She was just so sweet I couldn't resist
I may be able to use her in some sort of mixed media and I may just leave her be
Photograph of a lovely lady
came with the original frame I paid more for her than I normally would
but I was just really drawn to her
I like to call these "lost ancestors"
Original printing of a Tasha Tudor Christmas card
I absolutely love Tasha Tudor
I think she was a wonderful illustrator
She inspired me a lot as a child when I didn't really know who she was
and then I rediscovered her as an adult
and I stopped feeling like I had to be this artist
who was either so realistic or so abstract to be good
That I could just be me in my artwork
She was an extremely interesting person as well
I like to think of her as the person Martha Stewart ripped off in some sort of ways
Only Martha could never be as authentic as Tasha
I have been planning a more in depth post with some of
my own illustrations that she inspired
What did you find this weekend?
head on over to
to see what other goodies were saved!
