Index Card A Day Hangin Out

I just saw a new daily quick art challenge that runs thru August called Index Card A Day at Daisy Yellow I know it's a good thing for me to be creative a little bit every day so I'm gonna give it a try. My attention span can be short if I feel I have to work in the same format every day but on ICAD you can do any medium on any day and NOT BE, what a concept. So here's to little sketches of life for the summer.
Today I was thinking about a little fused glass mushroom I bought when I was a teenager from a store called The Human Touch in Gatlinburg, Tennessee. It hung from my rear view mirror for several years. My parents hated anything hanging in a car so the perfect tiny rebellion as a teen I guess. It got lost in a move and now I am all grown up. NOT! So I still have a little something pretty hanging on my mirror. :) Hope you all are having a great weekend. :) Nan

I'm so glad you stopped by and left a message. I was thrilled with your blog and have been reading backwards for quite some time, now. I love your Summer of Colors series and your Life is a Verb series. You are really inspiring. You make awesome art that I can appreciate.

I was totally impressed with your thrift store finds. At my thrift store, each book would cost $4.50 if it was old. Only newer books (from the 90s forward are offered at a dollar each, and that is rather pricy. Thanks again for stopping by. I really love your art and your blog.

Cute little shroom, I like the idea of doing an index card a day, if I could only get my studio cleaned up!
I used to have a crystal in my rear view mirror till someone with sticky fingers got a hold of it.
The mushroom sounded cute!
