give-away™ ... more collages

we all
could have
used
a few
extra minutes of sleep
.


it's monday and
time again for
the great monday give-away™!
check here
for
give-away™ guidelines.
and
other monday give-aways...

today
the theme is small.
i am broke this week
so i ask that if you
would like something,
please pay shipping.
it should be ~$3 USD.
sorry,
wish i was rich
but i am still
a grad student.

1. silver earrings with pinkish stone taken!

these were
purchased
for me,
by my mom
i think,
at least
10 years ago
at a schmancy place
that sells
french & austrian
jewelry.
all i know
is that these
are silver
with
a pearly looking
pinking stone.
i don't wear
earrings
anymore
(i have
non-existent lobes)
so i am hoping
one of you
like these.

2. purple earrings taken!

these are
from mexico
(also from
my mom?).
they are silver
with
a purplish
abalone-type
shell.

3. vintage? plastic necklace taken - debbie, i need your address!

purchased
at a vintage shop
with the intention
of making a shorter
necklace
(it's very long,
~2 feet).
one of you
jewelry people
could do wonders
with these beads
or they'd be great
for a little girl
or boy
who likes
to wear jewelry
sometimes.

hope you find
something you like!
i am looking
forward
to
your postcards.


these
are the last of
collages that
i did for
a postcard swap
a while back.



well,
these are actually
the remakes
after
my original cards
returned
tattered and torn
in the mail
from australia
(insert tears).
2 are still MOA.
this has happened
frequently
with my PO here.
so these were
mailed off in
fool-proof
(i hope)
packaging,
insured and
confirmed.
keep your
fingers
crossed.

until tomorrow.

Sorry to hear your collages had some mishaps along their way.
I think people will beperfectly happy to donate to your shipping costs. Hey - when you're rich and famous, you can offer free shipping - til then - look out for yourself a little!

How sad that your lovely postcards were munched up by the postal machines. The remakes are fantastic! I love your use of braille in your collages, great texture.

Dacia said...

I love your work (speaking of, just watched that movie with Giovanni Ribisi and Christina Ricci - avoid it, if u can)! Your postcards are too cute. I put your package of fun in the mail today. I can't wait for you to get it!!

ms. pea said...

oh! i love your collages. after hearing about the "greetings from new orleans" project on the radio, i am intrigued by the possibilities your lost collages may hold...

Debbie said...

I love the vintage necklace! It looks like it was handknotted in between beads! How summery luvvly-jubbly to wear it long or short and wrapped twice/thrice! If it's not taken, let me know how to send you postage/postcards/other fun stuff? And thanks so much for your blog everyday, Debbie

MARYBETH said...

Love your collage work. I will e-mail my address but come by my new blog and pick somthing out soon so i can return the giving.

KatDee said...

The static balloon images in your collages are so great.

gracia said...

I couldn't agree more... "we all could have used a few extra minutes sleep"...
How was it remaking something you had already created earlier?
take care, grache

molly said...

just found your blog through dacia's tag swap. i love the tag of yours that i received. glad i found your blog. i'll be back for sure!

butterflyrocket said...

Oh no!!! I am guessing mine was either destroyed or is MIA. You poor thing! That's one of my fears that the postal system will eat my art!
Your work looks lovely. The papers look stunning!
