hello friends,
this week has been a lucky week for me!
after the ladies social for my son's school i collected all
 of these discarded tickets for collage projects.

pink and red.

then my mother in-law gifted me this great bundle of foreign currency.
italy, japan, the phillipines....

then my very sweet friend lisa sent me a card with this little treat inside!
a war ration book form 1943.
it was from her uncle and she gave it to me to use in my art.
how great is that???

see, am i a lucky girl or what?
i can't wait to use these things.

i'm trying my best to keep my promise of four paintings a week but this week is tough.
the boys have had two half days and i have only finished one piece so far.
tea anyone?
i seriously can't start my day without my cup of tea.
in the winter it warms me up.
in the summer it wakes me up.
i don't like fancy tea.
just plain

this original piece plus print will be in my shop later today.
**is now in my shop**

i'm off to work.
enjoy your day:)

Yeah I think smaller paintings are the way to go, the largest size I do now is 8x10 inches ;)
