"Can anything be sadder than work left unfinished?
Yes, work never begun."
Christina Rossetti

I read this quote on another blog. I love it because it helps me to justify all the unfinished projects I have. And not feel one bit guilty for starting new projects.

These are a couple of canvas dolls (from several years ago) I left unfinished...

Work I have just Begun

The beginning of a clay head for an art doll

Now he has ears and a coat of Gesso paint

Is he puckered up for a kiss? Is he blowing his breath out?

A second clay head. I'm thinking a little smaller doll.
Perhaps an elf fairy.

He now has a face and ears...

I have some ideas for their bodies and details but I'm not really sure what is going to be next.

My main goal is to not add them to the box with the unfinished canvas dolls.

Have a great summer weekend! Joining up with Pink Saturday. Click here to visit Beverly at How Sweet The Sound

Pink Butterflies...

I've recently moved into a new house. One big change I've made is my desire to hang up wreaths. It seems I have an addiction and I may need to eventually seek help but for now I'm going to enjoy this new pleasure.

I found a simple grapevine wreath at AC Moore's for around $5. I have a collection of butterflies from the dollar store and few other shops.

Voila' a pretty butterfly wreath for the front door.

Another new addiction for me is plants. This is my first orchid.
These lovely globe flowers are not in my garden they are planted outside my dentist's office. I thought they were so pretty and fun to see.
I'm late at posting this to Pink Saturday but other things delayed me. Hope you had a great day and I wish you an even better week!
