Sorry for my long silence. Summer gets pretty busy here on the farm. We are in the midst of hay season which is late this year due to the weather. If you are interested in seeing a bit of that process you can take a look at my post about it from last year, Hay Season.
The hay is in the barn, finally. You can see Powder guarding the stash. Now maybe I can get back to some art work.
I bought these old books at a thrift store, thinking I might alter them. A dollar for all 4 of them, what a deal!
They are pretty cool but one is so old, I can't bear to do anything but preserve it.
See that copyright date? 1892!
Cool old covers, embossed. None of them published any later than the 1920's.
Here is one old book I hollowed out and decorated. I might do more to it still. I had bought some cool little metal corner embellishment thingies and I cannot find them. I wanted to put them in these corners.
I do hope to have some new art to show you in my next post. I've slowly been stitching on another Dooleybobber. Remember those? Its been so long, I forgot myself what they are. I hope you all are keeping your cool this summer, I know it has been hot in most other places. I'm not the only one who hasn't been blogging a lot lately.
