I had the opportunity to purchase from my dear friend, Elizabeth Gonzalez of Borboletas a set of her beautiful ceramic butterflies. Elizabeth was among one of last year's "Women Who Create Beautiful Things" and I was so excited to purchase her work.
When the butterflies arrived, I just wanted to hang them up right away and not worry about what wall they would go on or nails, so I just added them to this piece that I have hanging in my Family Room. This iron motif piece is from Pier One Imports and I always felt it needed something. Don't they look great together?
So fun to add some creative pieces to my home, especially from a special creative friend of mine. Thank you, Elizabeth.

Marilyn still getting a lot of attention. This is composed of very small 3x3 blocks of pictures.
Individually painted paintings to compose the larger one of Van Gogh.
I'd say these paintings got a lot of attention.
A lot of little baby faces in the skull.
Birds painted on old cigar boxes. So cool.
They look great grouped together on the wall.
This is a huge 3-D sculpture coming off the wall. You could see real water droplets on her skin.
Makes me smile...
Love these dog portraits!
I couldn't believe I was standing in front of a Norman Rockwell....only 3 million and something dollars.
and We love Malcolm Liepke.
This is made up of various antique papers and books. He adds a very small amount of paint to describe the face, which I didn't even see at first.
Meeting up with my lovely, blogger friend, Valerie of Twigs2Nest Studio. So fun to reconnect and catch up. Hopefully, we could take a class together someday.
Lots of distressing..just up my alley.
