Collage Play with Crowabout

Several weeks ago I came across the Collage Play with Crowabout group on Flickr and, finally got busy and participated. Once a week, Nancy Baumiller posts collage images for the group members to use in a collage for a weekly challenge. I had fun with this one and actually liked it so much in the end that I listed it on Etsy.

In other news, Daniel and I went to downtown Savannah today to try out a Middle Eastern Deli Daniel recently discovered (yummy!) and then we visited a couple of antique malls. Contrary to so many of you, I usually do not enjoy antiquing. Not because I don't like the things that are offered, but because I get so overwhelmed and never quite know if I am really getting a deal. So, much to our surprise, I found a little pale yellow vase, which looks great in our kitchen and an old German postcard - both of those for $2. Was that a deal or what?!?
I still have two awards to list that my kind blogger friends bestowed on me a few days ago and one more set of photos from our road trip. I'll get to that tomorrow or the day after. Plus, I am working on my artwork... Life is good! I hope for you as well!!

  2. Hi Silke, I really enjoy coming to your blog everyday to see your wonderful works of Art! This collage is fantastic! As all your other pieces are to!
    Also, the vase that you purchased I would say is a very good deal! It's also very attractive and I'm sure that you'll get a good amount of use from it! Have a wonderful rest of your day.

  8. Hi Silke, this piece of art is really good, I love it very much!, the colors and the composition. I'd like to do something like that...That's not my style I think but I'd like to learn, some day I'll try something.
