We're back from our long weekend trip to Fredericksburg, Virginia. I always feel energized after coming back from a vacation, even short vacations. Visiting new areas - and just getting away from the routine of everyday life - always fills me with original insights and fresh ideas for my art.
We visited countless antique shops; and bazaars and malls filled with dealers. I was looking for vintage fabric, binding and millinery items. Instead, I found some interesting earrings. Three of the earrings were missing their pairs. But in mixed-media art, every bit and bob is useful.
