That is exactly what I feel like I have been doing. 
 Building my nests of sorts...

The patina on this door was so yummy.
I have a little thing for of my first paid jobs was vines. 
I used to joke when I had a my teen-like acne
I would just paint a vine on my face to hide it...I think I could start that trend!

The marriage of 
my art and salvaged finds 
makes me soar...
like that little bird.

I appreciate the love 
more than I can say.
