Well, will wonders never cease! I had no trouble getting Blogger to load this photo in the correct orientation today!
There is a bit of glare on the glass but that's the way that it goes with framed glassed pieces.
This piece is approximately 11x14 and the blue background is the cover of an old book. The calender page is actually the inside cover of a journal from 1926 and the handwriting is an entry from that journal. The gal who used the journal talks about how she "ironed in the forenoon". On the far left you can see the cloth spine of the book . I used a page from a vintage photo album that held cabinet cards to frame the vintage plate of the birds nest and the Blue Jay feather was picked up on a walk with the dogs. I hope to do more of these sorts of collages and have them for sale in my Etsy store soon!
I hope that everyone had a good weekend! We managed to weather TS Hanna with little trouble. The forecast did inspire Tom to get up on the roof and clean out the gutters_ ha has been talking about doing this chore for ages!!!! Fortunately we won't be seeing anything of Ike up here but our thoughts go out to those in his path!!!
