Happy 2020!

Here is a rose I picked from the family garden. I hope the future holds love beauty for all of us in the new year of 2020. Let’s go.



Here are a couple new doorknob pieces I have done in frames—which is different for me. I am still having so much fun here:

Muses’ fling

Muses’ fling

I have always been
the Muses’ fling
Passionate,
beguiled
by beauty—
ever fleeting

I find myself relieved
when I am reunited
with Creativity—
even when
I am reminded:
I have always been
and will always be
the Muses’ fling

2 finished projects

I have continued to do my lock/doorknob/key/etc. art pieces & have had an amazing time working on them. I might be a little obsessed. Here are 2 I just finished:

Antique hand forged lock & key from the 1700’s
Here is the 6.5 inch key from the photo above 
A doorknob piece I made for my friend Niki

Staying Busy

I haven’t been inspired to write very much, lately. But, I have been all about redecorating, creating pieces of art to hang, and to finally getting around to finishing so many things I have been putting off. Sometimes, I swear I could just keep going and going and never even finish a To-Do ListI am very pleased at how much I have completed, but still can’t help but notice the mound of laundry I need to do, the tub that could be scrubbed, etc. But, for what it’s worth, the above and below are a few pics of the things I have been focused on.

The Mr. Goodbar

The Mr. Goodbar 

In a mixed bag of chocolates 
I saw him and hoped, from afar
he was not ashamed to be
the Mr. Goodbar

In this home, he has probably
always been chosen last
in a game of grabbing
by a sweet-toothed family

I saw him and I realized
I had no idea who was—
never knew his chocolate;
never tasted his peanuts

After careful consideration, 
I decided he was The Best
The man always standing
whilst the others digest
