Knob Village

I was cleaning my ART desk yesterday. At the bottom and under it all I found this hand full of castle tower scraps. You know how one thing leads to another. I couldn't throw them away. It's crazy.

Remember the Knob Angles?

Well I made a little Knob Village.

And then there was time for making three ARTful envelopes.
Winging out tomorrow.

Have you made Artful mail recently?
I'm off to paint.
Expect,
Sharon

credit: the little corner stamp on the envelope is by Cory Celaya. She gifted me last year. Visit her here or here. Delightful!

  7. Wonderful way to be "green" and use what is available. We should all follow your example, in fact I have been filling jars with these snippets to use for something?? Have to quit traveling so much and stay home - my muse needs some down time. Maybe after next week. The little villages are so cute. Your blogs seem light and full of joy right now.

  13. You are so clever. There is something witty about your knob village - I know that sounds odd but that's how it struck me.
