Movie Inspiration: You've Got Mail

Nothing says autumn like "You've Got Mail." Like other pretty movies, I could watch it over and over again and NEVER tire. While I watch it, I dream of owning a shop (gallery) just like the one her tiny little book shop sits in. What a dream! Well, throughout the movie, there are references made to other movies, "Wizard of Oz" is one of those. The painting above is a tribute to that. The models were actually tiny, glittery Christmas ornaments.
         It's gotten to the point that I put the movie dubbed in Italian with Italian subtitles to practice the language, since I have it memorized in English.           I apologize for the bottom two photos; my camera has given up on me. Drats! I hope to have better photos soon and when I do, they will be posts on eBay for auction.

Thinking of Spring While Preparing for Christmas

I decided to get brave and paint some lace. I am really pleased and got out more lace from my sewing bin to try out some more. I will have to show you next week. I wish you a lovely upcoming week.
