On the work table today....

Today, I have this on my work table.....
I found this mannequin bust in a thrift store.  It was covered in cloth that had seen better days.  I cut up a lace curtain for the base and she's ready to be embellished. 

My inspiration comes from this...
This gorgeous canvas painting is an original by none other than
Cindy from Cindy's Fractured Fairy Tale Blog.  You can find and purchase her paintings at
Cindy is an amazing artist and an amazing person.  She has a sparkling personality that comes through in her blog if you aren't following her then I suggest you start.  I guarantee she will make you smile! 

I hope you'll come back soon and see her transformation.

In the meantime....what's on your work table?????
