Someday, the altered art you make today will be
old, faded, falling apart, and someone else will salvage the bits and use them
in new altered art.It's the best that any piece of art can hope for

WOYWW?? Well it's WIMBW here....

Not whats on my workdesk but what's in a box that my lovely husband brought home on Friday night, lots of glass bits and pieces that were surplus to requirements at a local Food Research Institute..


Ok some wives my prefer a bunch of flowers on a Friday night, as a declaration of their husbands love


But Matt knows how to win my heart...



Lots of bits and pieces to play with
and they will last much longer than flowers





Can anyone see a pair of chicken's feet here???
