  1. Lamp shades are fun. Fringe, crystals and beads, even alcohol inks can produce some really interesting results, plus, you are recycling.
  2. My bride and I like to thrift. She does alot of creative sewing and jewelry, she also loves old lamps. I started picking up boxes and candle holders when I was a teenager. We revive and resell.
  3. A customized jeweled spider brooch rests upon her lace painted web. Round lathe-turned, second hand treasure box. Lace painted and contour shaded in candy red over black, pearlescent gold and silver. Even the bottom of the box is painted. The inside of the box and bottom of the lid are lined with black cherry colored velvet...
  4. I am sure. This one is inventory.
  5. I decided to give this poor old jewelry box a second life. I found it at a Goodwill store for 99 cents in pretty rough shape. As a kid in the 70s I loved going to hot rod shows and looking at all the wild paint jobs. I especially loved the custom vans with the metal flakes, pearls and candy oversprays.

Here I have lace painted with candy blue over chrome silver and black with contour fading giving a definite moonlit forest look for the owl medallion I inlaid upon the lid. The inner tray is completed the same way. I added a mirror to the inside of the lid and framed it in blue velvet. The rest of the box got the blue velvet treatment as well. Magic and luxury in one pretty blue package...

I have a feeling that The Watchman will play a substantial role in the personal journeys of many seekers. I hope that your personal rewards in this endeavor are equally great. Applause and much appreciation to you sir.
  8. Alice gets brushed each time she is fed. We call it, 'Taking a bit of fuss'. She prefers to be spoken to in a British accent, for she is a Tortie with proper English roots and her staff must comply with her very reasonable demands. She is not a Princess or a Diva, she merely 'is', and that is enough. She is not in the least bit spoiled or indulged...
