A Valentine Inspiration of Sorts

Here are a few Valentine silhouettes I hand cut. There
are several that aren't Valentine.....but
still there is a theme. These are
at Lola Rue & I love how they are
displayed. She is always re-arranging so
things always look fresh and new.


Here is my silhouette wall in my kitchen.
They grace my stair way. I love the black....
red....and white. I know it is more bold
than a lot like these days.....
but the red just gives the silhouettes
a punch. I LOVE the contrast.




Here is another shot. I plan to add more.
Most are hand cut by me.....but some
are guest artists. Like Lincoln made me
some. He gave me the turkey silhouette for
mothers day a few years back......
and then there are the kitties that Lindsey
hand cut for me. Some are old
and have no artist signature. I love those too.
Some are of me when I was a little girl.
Then there are the hand cut ones
of Lindsey & Lincoln from Disney World.
I love that old world charm. A few are
from Lincoln when he was in pre-school. It brings
joy to me to see these. I hope you like this little
bit of quaint charm. Get out your scissors & see
what you can cut. It is timeless & classic.
Blessings for an artfully creative evening.

Dear Hope,
We are sitting in the Denver airport, almost ready for the last leg of our trip. Thank you soooo much for all your prayers and support. Jud's a bit queasy but basically doing well. Chemo starts again tuesday and we are back at Stanford to check Jud and see if he qualifies for surgery. One more step done. It will be so good to see Katie and the dogs but right mow, I have two homes! I love your silhouettes! The color is magnificent. I love how the black sticks out and think your display and wall look great!
Sending big thankful hugs.
Suz

You are a real collector, girl. Those will be treasured for years and years. Do you use teensy little scissors when you make them? I find little pointy scissors help with detailed work.
XO, Cheryl
