Marquees ~ Twinkling Again

A little over a year ago,
 I made a hard decision.
Due to lack of space, I stopped creating marquee signs.
But new design concepts kept popping up
and continual requests from you
had me realize that I am not done.
When something persistently knocks on your heart
you have to answer it, right ?
So today, I am moving into a new studio space
so I can return to my inner twinkle !
1st up ?  A giant champagne bottle
If you are interested in receiving emails
on the latest light-up creations just pop me an email at:

Toilet Paper Art & Einstein

Can you see what this white and lovely art is made from ?
Look a little closer
Yes, that's right, it's just plain and lowly toilet paper !
Made by turkish artist Sakir Gökcebag
A contrast that leaves me inspired
to challenge myself
to re evaluate and elevate
how I see ordinary things
In other words ... find and create your OWN beauty
Albert Einstein, a big proponent of creative play says it best ~
“I am enough of an artist to draw freely upon my imagination.
Imagination is more important than knowledge.
Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world" 
Wishing you all an extra~ordinary day full of discovery

Blue Velvet Crush

What is it with blue velvet that is so beguiling ?
It is showing up everywhere this season
and I admit I have a bit of a crush.
 Moody and mysterious ... it sets the stage so perfectly for October
Will you be adding a little
to your home or wardrobe this Fall ?

or how about these barbed wire men's slippers ?
( I would wear these ! )

Would you do velvet nails ?

 if s, here is where to learn how
And if velvet had a sound ... I believe it would be this song
Wishing you a weekend ensconced in good things
