LET'S GET ACQUAINTED AT THE COTTAGE

Welcome! My name is Marlynne Joy Snare and I'm dressed up for an old fashioned Tea Party our Sorority had the other night. I had this picture all cropped and ready but something happened so your seeing more than I wanted! Oh Well! I am a 76 yr. old (in Feb.) great-grandmother that still likes to create and have fun!  The "Story Of The Cottage" on the sidebar tells how my cottage came about and it is precious to me!. This is my 3rd year with my blogs. My first one is Marlynne Creates Daily, wwwmcreatesdaily.blogspot.com  This fulfills my Folk Art Style and  Precious Cottage my Victorian Style. Hope you will come back and visit me again!

This favorite old photo has followed me around for years. Right now it is on the round table by my bed

My good friend and neighbor made a Journal for me for Christmas this year. This is how I am using it. I'd been seeing some of the artists bloggers do "Zentangle" (I think this is what it's called) art so I'm trying it!

This is the second page. I like quotes and use them a lot in my art. These were all drawn "doddle" style with one continuous line,  or circle. I used bottle acrylic paints, but could be done with pencils, markers or watercolor paint.

I was thinking about the Cancer Survivor friends on this 3rd. page. I decided to give a behind the veil look by dabbing apiece of bubble wrap with white paint and then sprinkling white glitter.

I had planned on this picture following the one of the journal which is next and I wanted as first! Can you tell I'm just new to this computer stuff? Thank goodness for Granddaughters help ever so often!

This is my beautiful Journal from Hope, with a few of my accessories.The photos remind me of Mother. The beaded cushion was made with beads from my great grandmothers things. The "Omnium Gatherum" hanging was made after I saw an Antique Store with this name and thought it fit in around here! The Book Marker was a gift from a special friend and sorority sister. I am anxious to visit all your blogs too! So for now happy blogging!

  4. Loved the picture and all the stuff inside it. And I love your zest for life. I am 65 and I believe staying involved and active is the most important thing. It is my goal.

    Come visit me at my blog home. You will be always welcome.
