Tinker Verve

creating with spirit & enthusiasm…often with great results

One must always have one’s boots on and be ready to go.

keep your boots on...

This  piece, with original collage work ,has been topped with a 3″ by 5″ bevel glass (w/the top corners cut off) then encased with a soldered edge.  It’s hanging in a genuine stirrup that I think may still have a tad bit of manure still on it.   {oops!}

I have used this completely adorable picture of my cousins in the collage work shown @ the top.  I wanted to show you a close-up of it here.

    • You do really look adorable in that dress, Laurie. I saw you in a dress on your wedding day too. 😉

  2. Laurie – I think you were too young to talk back to your mom about wearing a dress. That must be what happened! Thanks for posting this, Elaine. It’s so cute!
