A Little of This and a Little of That

I went into the eye doctor today to get some contacts and my doctor is so much fun! If you're in the Kansas City area, go get your eyes checked out by Teresa Larcom at Innovative Eye Care on 82nd and State Line. She was telling me about a room she has painted in a washed-out turquoise and it sounded so cool. I just had to come home and make her a switch plate.

Um, only problem is, we're moving and much of my mosaic supplies are in the garage. So this was my studio, I sat on the ground next to some garbage cans to make my switch plate. I call it "art in a pinch."

I had to show off my fab custom ring by Elle Binder. If you can't read it, it says "The Smiths."

And turn the ring and you have "Morrissey". What could be more perfect, I ask you? I'm taking Brendan into Stuff soon because he wants one that says "Beck." Very cool. Elle can make you anything you want and she really gets it, so go to Stuff and order up.

Brendan just got back from a wonderful trip to France and brought me this great perfume from a perfumery in the south of France. It was hard for him to pick a favorite spot. They went all over. I hope this makes a world traveler out of him; I've never been off this continent.

He brought back some cool plates and told me they were for my mosaics. No way!

And he brought my dad, a total history fanatic, a book from Normandy and some sea shells. He swam in the Mediterranean, ate dinner in a cave, went to the top of the Eiffel Tower, toured the French countryside, and had wine with dinner. He was only gone for 10 days, but if felt like months and I am so happy he's home!!!

cute, cute! Ya never know what might inspire ya. And if you are like me, I have to do the work while the idea is fresh in my head. Good luck with moving! I would hate to have to pack up all my treasures, so therefore, I'm never moving, no matter what!
