This piece is a mixed media collage. Most of the images were taken from late 1800s issues of Scientific American and early 1900s issues of Ladies Home Journal. I only have two more weeks to work on it, so I'll let you know how it turns out. As always, suggestions are welcome!

Cabin Fever is finally starting to set in. I just can't think of spring and blossoms, right now, so I've begun working on some Halloween projects that I didn't have time for back in the fall!
I'll wait until this fall to post them. In the meantime, enjoy this Valentine's Day greeting from one of my favorite artists, my daughter. And I'll enjoy the peppermint patties and snow caps that my husband and kids got me for Valentine's Day. Hope your day was full of sweet surpises!

Another benefit of the snow is that it's forced me to stay in and get some projects finished. Janet Moss had the perfect word for me: "Heartfelt". I was looking for something short and sentimental, and heartfelt summed it up perfectly.
After I had my word, I framed it in a brass frame, punched some holes in the frame and added some dangles from an old pin that I had.
In the meantime, the original flower I had disappeared. I suspect my fabric-loving cavalier Bordeaux had something to do with it. So I created a new one. I've been doing a lot with these flowers. I'll show them in another blog post.
Here is the finished product. I think sweet Charlotte looks right at home in her new surroundings. Heartfelt thanks to Janet for her inspirational choice of words!
