Found Objects


Hello! My name is Heather and I'm really happy to be joining your group! I live in Albuquerque, New Mexico in the beautiful southwestern USA with my wonderful husband and our two Scottish Terriers.  I'm a retired engineer and I'm happy to say I now spend most of my time puttering in my studio (click here if you want to see).  I love the idea of working to a prompt so this venue is perfect for me!

For my tags today I was happy to use some of my hoarded curated collection of bits and bobs. Lace, keys, number tags, and even some old fashioned hosiery clips (not sure what the real name is for those things all women used to wear to hold up their stockings). The ties on two of them are from old silk kimonos (I wasn't the one to cut them up!) and that round thing that looks like a yellow filter... not sure what it is.  Anyhoo, I hope you like them and below I'll insert some closer shots because I'm all about the texture of things.  Thank you for allowing me to join with you!
