    the barnyard series
    It's been a fun couple of weeks. Lots of new mosaics made. I bought several wooden shapes --- a cow, pig, sheep and a wooden plaque with a horse on it.  The pig is about 5 inches long and the cow is about 8 inches. Neither had a head shape that would work well for me, so I bulked them up with air dry clay. Then each received a button treatment and were mounted on a mosaiced board. How fun are they?

    the lamb project.. buttons are fun!
    I enjoy finding shapes, usually made of wood. They languish in estate sales, thrift stores and flea markets. No one wants them anymore. Maybe the paint has faded, they are no longer whole or they are downright ugly! None of that matters in a transformation! The link below is to a you tube video I made showing how to put together a button lamb.  Hope you enjoy!
  3. After I finished this piece, I sold it the next day at a christmas fair.

    The giraffe .... trash to treasures!
    What would YOU do with this fellow? I found this homely fellow in a thrift store, and bought him for a $1. He was transformed, and I chronicled it on my YOU Tube channel. Take a look!
