vintage-bowTraveling down the path to creativity means taking simple objects and letting your imagination lead you.

vintage-skeleton-keyThe song for this post is Imagination.

Vintage-purseNever mind, I'll use my umbrella of imagination and pack up my inspiration into my handbag and perhaps I'll find Spring.

Karen, sometimes one of your posts zings its way right into my imagination. And that's what this post has done. I'm working on a project for my niece's birthday and this post has given me a new way to go with a large unused spot on my "canvas." Thanks so much!

Snow? Oh dear. Keep it down there, won't you please?

It was fabulous watching your imagination take shape with all those cut~outs and I like how you turned the whole bit in to a hat for one of your paintings. So whimsical!

I also peeked at your Easter peeps from your PS post. (I'm just getting around). I love the porcelain bunny you are painting and you know how I feel about your watercolors so I am coveting the Grandma Bunny card! :-)
