I spent over three weeks in California, helping my family care for my Dad who was ill. He is in a rehab center progressing well. I rarely had free time, but when I did, I managed to pick up a few things for future art projects. This photo above shows some antique nails and a gold cross my big brother wants me to incorporate into some glass crosses.
I found this little plastic horse in a trashcan at the car wash. I don't normally dig in trash, but the plastic horse was sitting on the top. It looked like it came from a child who didn't care about it anymore. So I took it home and repainted the horses hooves, mane and tail.
I found this porcelain glass horse at a thrift shop in California. I bought it so I could set it with the other horse at home.
I found these two pink patterned plates at the thrift shops in Redding, California. Don't know what I will use them for but they would be fun to work with.
My sister, Kaye passed these big glass gems to me before I left. Don't know where she got them. I have never seen this size before.
I found this pretty cup with the flower pattern. I like incorporating china in with my glass art designs.
