From Desk Drawer to Reliquary!

It immediately caught my eye yesterday, as Katie and I
were perusing around Art of Recycle in Ephrata, PA.

I'm thinking this is a vintage desk drawer... with an ink well,
 pencil/pen tray. What do you think?
It measures 8 by 16.5 inches... and the price was right!

It didn't "scream" at me... but immediately spoke to me, saying:
"Turn me on end, stand me up... stand me up!" 

And in that moment... Behold a reliquary, 
waiting to "house" a doll and a story!

And so... with a bit of sanctified imagination 
and some of the inspiration that Penny, from Art Journey 
(see my side-bar) just blogged about... 
I'm ready to begin working on a new doll!
Well... it's about time! (wink!)


  1. Your wonderful imagination is holding forth once again! Now I'll be excitedly waiting to see your next story art.

    1. Penny... your posts and remarks encourage the heart (and soul)!

  2. See? This is exactly the reason I am grounded from thrift shopping. I see things like this in so much, and have to stop myself from hauling it home. I can't wait to see what you make with it.

    1. Yup... I know exactly what you're talking about: But you exercise far more self-control than I do... cause I keep going back!
