Tarnished Altered Art

Good Morning.... Right now the day is very pleasant, but afternoon hours are back to in the 90's, so when finished posting I will be closing the house up and turn my 3 rooms of air on... I do so enjoy having the house open however... The confinement sets in when all is closed up...
Yesterday afternoon I cooked green beans and bacon and potatoes in a kettle of which may be the last of our beans in the garden.. I also thought a batch of caramel corn may be rather nice as we enjoy the evening hours.... It was and it was addictive... I also finished this altered art piece placed on the base of a old tarnished butter holder... done with a bit of my rendition of my three favorite styles... Victorian... Vintage...and French... all creating layers of loveliness and rooms of abundance.. as I proceed to try to age gracefully I also enjoy my surrounding to feel the same.. Wishes for all of you to enjoy a pleasant and peaceful day as Mother Nature heats the day up to the boiling point...

Love the altered art!! I may try something like that.....
We are cool here today but tomorrow will force the AC on for sure. Next few days will be in the 90+ range.
I am looking forward to the Fall & baking bread again!! Ahhhhh..... the smell of the raising dough & the baking of the bread!!
Have a Great Day!

Pretty altered art Marietta. I haven't created anything for quite some time now. Need to find time to do that.
I am ready for 70 degree weather. I could have that year round and be a happy camper! :)
