This is the road I walked to get to my mailbox. Hide loved to run ahead of me. I have jogged up this road many a time in warmer days.

My "circle of friends" sculpture...frozen but they are still hanging together. I dedicate these wintery blog entries to my friend John, who lives in Alaska. I tell him we have cold weather here and he laughs....as daily he lives within temps of 30-40 degrees BELOW freezing. Where cars and trucks are plugged in with big electrical cords so their gas doesn't freeze. I have been to Alaska only once and will be back someday. So...John....you are probably getting a chuckle out of these photos...I know I am a lightweight...but snow is snow and it is beautiful anywhere!!!

Gayle and I. Jim and I.
The White Buffalo.....
Recently my friends and I attended an art opening at 50 Penn Place in Oklahoma City. While there we saw this beautiful white buffalo covered in hundreds of strings of pearls. Jim took the pictures. Gayle and I stood next to this beautiful animal. I wish I could have her in my own frontroom at home!!!
This doll had no body. I bought just her head, her arms and legs in a thrift store. I have had her for sometime. I knew that eventually I wanted to create a dress for her somehow and I did.
I added a bow and an off the shoulder bodice. I positioned her arms with hands outward. My daughter suggested I put something in her hand...but have not thought of what or how just yet.
The colors of her dress are calico blue mosaic pieces, antique blue glass, smokey colored textured glass and burgundy glass. I also attached a few pewter colored glass gems for accent.
I enjoyed looking at all the different styles and craftsmanship in the leather.
Not looking too excited!!!
