A new home

The bits and pieces of rust and springs and coils that I have stashed away in my collage collection, are beginning to find new homes...

I love this rusty square nut.  I wonder what it held together so long ago.

Two old square nails sprout up at flowers.  Another fastener acts as door.

A coil curves from the peak.

The words from a Danish proverb, "The road to a friend's house is never long" complete the canvas. 
The bits and pieces of a time gone by have found a new home. 


  1. First of all, define yourself as an artist! You definitely are. This is charming and I love it, including the proverb. I haven't done collage in quite awhile, but this makes me want to do it again! nancy

  2. ohhh, these are lovely!! I adore using found objects in my ART and YES! it is art. We don't need to separate ourselves into this dimension or that. You are an artist indeed.

    Grateful I found you via CED2011 today!

  3. Oh I absolutely love these! So creative ~ Wow! thanks ^_^
