Altered Art Books

A few years ago I altered 3 books.  A dedication to my mother, Sisters, and A Rose by Any Other Name.   IMG_0068IMG_0065IMG_0079    IMG_0063IMG_0062IMG_0072IMG_0081 IMG_0080  IMG_0059 IMG_0055

Valentine Gift

My husband is so thoughtful, I have been begging for a new camera, sometimes we have to keep reminding them about what we need and so that’s what I got for Valentine’s Day.  I am posting some new pics to see how it compares with the old camera.  These are pictures of boxes and cases I have either painted or decoupaged.

What do you think?  I love my new Canon.

Pat aka Ben


This is a picture, I had not see before today, of Pat in the late 50’s a few years before we met.  Cousin Gayle and Grandpa Brandel are in the background.  The first picture below is Pat’s Great-Grandfather Brandel and family.  Second pic, Pat, Ed(his brother) and Great-Grandfather and Great-Grandmother Helton,  last pic, Pat and Kathleen(friend from Texas) on the farm near Brinktown.  I love vintage pictures, don’t you?
