The Beauty of Kiramic

Now I am no expert when it comes to ceramics or any art for that matter but I do know what is interesting, beautiful craftmanship when I see it - or should that be craftwomanship!!

These lovely pieces are by Kira O Brien who is a ceramic and visual artist from Cork, Ireland.

Beautiful pieces to adorn your home or to give to someone special.  Thankyou Kira for sharing your special gift.

It's Show Time!

As a kid, on Sunday afternoons, you could find me sitting in front of the tv watching Tarzan Theater. And in 1987, when I first began working from home, I canceled my cable tv, because there was a new channel that ran old movies all day long. I thought I might not be able to resist...

Silent Heart Vintage on etsy is a wonderful place to indulge your love of old movies.

the classic dramatic spotlight

I think I missed The Mummy's Ghost...

Take a peek at SilentHeartVintage, you'll find some of your old favorites there, but you'll need to bring your own popcorn...
