The Weekend is Here!

The hub made it home safely from Chicago, and we are just about to kick it back and start the weekend. Sigh. Such is the life.

The sunset is just lovely tonight. (See the two hot air balloons in the bottom left-hand corner?) It's a little cool this evening, which I am loving. We'll have plenty of hot days ahead, so I am savoring the chill.

I finished a cigar box today and a couple more ATCs. I actually brought this Cuban cigar box back from Geneva last year. We went into a fabulous (two story) tobacconist so the hub could get some Cuban cigars (still illegal here in the states). When I saw the boxes, I couldn't help but tell the lady what I did with them--hoping she'd give me some, grin. She did. I lugged those things (empty, of course) all over Europe! Silly me. But I'm glad I did. They are extra special.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend. I still have some flowers to plant.

I so admire how you do those boxes...they had plane white ones at Hobby Lobby the other day but I don't think I could do it unless you were beside me showing me how...
That picture was awesome...the balloons were so tiny in that huge sky!

where do you find all your energy?

I have your name in the drawing- and yes, I painted the miniatures. I have made these with vintage papers before, but not paintings, so I'll see how they hold. The flux never bothered the vintage paper when I did that. I have a friend who used to make them with abstract art and hers held up too. She also made stained glass jewelry. If you make some, post it and I'll be watching to see it. It is always interesting when different people do the same technique.

I LOVE the cigar box!!! what a perfectly wonderful way to recycle one. Where/how are you going to display it?

We get a lot of hot air balloons here. I've always wanted to fly in one.

That is a beautiful sky! I went on a hot air balloon ride once. It was nice. Much gentler than I expected it to be.
I love your boxes. Each one is truly special and this one is no exception. It's really lovely.
