Altered Altoid Tin- The Gipsy

I had so much fun creating the Altered Altoids Tin for a swap I'm in.
What will the Gipsy Fortune Teller reveal?
She can use her tea leaves, the crystal ball,
Palm Reading or perhaps a spin on the Wheel of Fortune!
You decide!

I'm entering this in the Simon Says challenge this week

The Oregon Coast

We're back from our trip to the Oregon coast.
Stopped along the way to take in the waterfalls.

Vic & I.
At a fish hatchery.

Gorgeous Falls!

Found shipwreck's on the beach.

 Four Stevens and look they even named it after us! LOL

Enjoying the local cuisine.

Our view from our tent one day.

We had our Anniversary dinner at Tidal Raves. It was wonderful!

This is right outside the restaurant, we had a gorgeous ocean view.

spent some time at the Aquarium

This little guy was darling!

In Newport we took this boat out crabbing.

We each limited out on  crab.

This was a working boat where we all had a job to do. Vic helped pull pots.
I had to check the size and sexes for keepers.(no that's NOT me) LOL
I did get pinched a couple of times really good and
unfortunately did get a little sea sick when we hit the ocean.

The beautiful coast


We walked along the beach and will cherish all these memories for a lifetime.

Isn't this just a fun wall! just one of the pieces
 I've done for some very talented clients of mine.
He can do just about anything with a hammer and saw
and she is oozing with talent.
 Her decorating skills are un-matched by any I've ever seen.
No kidding their home should be in a Better homes and Garden magazine!!!
These photos are from their ranch.
The guest bedroom done with bright red poppies.

and the larger than life Antique styled horse done on the barn door.
It was inspired by a pillow of all things.
I wish you could see their home. It would knock your socks off!
I'll be back to share more soon.
