This is a commissioned piece that is going out to in the mail on Monday to a friend of, let me see now, fifty-three years? Of course, this is due to the fact that we knew each other in a past life because neither of us is, at the present moment, over 30. Right, Pat?
Anyway, it is an adaptation of the dear old “Chewing Through the Leather Straps” card. It has been decoupaged, scratched, had feet added, lined with felt and, generally, just blinged to within an inch of its grunge style. She asked me for a price, I gave her one and she sent me more (this has been happening to me lately)… Ah, friendship… Sometimes I guess business and friendship mix just fine. Knock, knock on the wooden box!! Here are a couple of close-ups:
It was lovely to have a sunny morning to get some photos. If I had waited ’til the sun was higher, I might have had fewer shadows to deal with but, lately, a sunny day can turn into a thunderstorm in the blink of a camera shutter. Not taking any chances, even if it means not getting breakfast until some unseemly hour of the morning!
I hope you enjoy seeing this. It will be going off with the beautiful “Music is Love” card and a special envelope in the a.m. Who knows what else might wind up in that package?
Please leave me a comment. I do appreciate it so and thank you in advance. Much love and blessings to you and yours.
