This week is all about love. As we approach Valentine's Day, I am in the mood to share some love. Even though we had another four inches of snow last night, and my heat is still struggling to reach 50 degrees F (10 C),
I've taken my collage inspired altered book to my dining room, where I plan to warm up with
a cup of coffee
in my green depression glass that is called either floral or poinsettia. From what I can find on the internet, it was made by Jeannette Glass Company from 1931 to 1935.
Of course, the cup and book were overshadowed by
the snow that had fallen outside. Why do I feel I'm living in MN with Denise and Halle?
The icy sidewalk was hard to clear, but at least I had already cleaned it from the previous snow. As an aside, I heard a news report that the City could fine you if your sidewalk wasn't shoveled. The report stated that the City wouldn't hassle people or intentionally find sidewalks to ticket unless neighbors complained. But it's better to be safe than sorry. BTW, I have shoveled my sidewalk to the "parking area," which technically belongs to the City.
But, let's get back to the love. Yes, this is a spread in my altered book that shows the love.
I cut the hearts out after drawing one on the back of wrapping paper I saved from Christmas. If I'd had a die, it would have been much easier.
I wondered if scanning the spread would make it easier to see the shiny, shimmery paper I used, but that was not the case. And I MUST remember to clean my scanner, because that red ink is still bleeding onto everything.
However, it's pretty obvious who's going to get all my love this week!
Show us the love, too. Link your direct T post below and we'll be by to share the love with you, too. If this is your first time visiting, please remember, you don't have to drink Tea, you don't have to take photos on Tuesday (although I did this week), but your post should be drink related in some way, please.
