A few of my creations! When I'm not collecting and selling my vintage linens, I love to create digital collages and altered dominos and game tiles.
If you want to see more search the blog using collage as a keyword.....(or dominos, or vintage linens) ...I think I've tagged most posts.

A fun theme this week at Soartful Challenges! I used the vintage cherries background (googled), the lady and grunge from Lisa's Altered Art, and some added effects. I always want to keep going but "less is more" usually is the case. It was fun and didn't take me forever like some that I get into, LOL!!
I've not been a very faithful blogger lately, too wrapped up in my snowbird life here in Arizona! Garage saled yesterday until it started raining! We retreated to a mall, found some bargains, so happily headed for home after a nice lunch!
I got into a book I couldn't put down and just had to finish it so actually didn't even turn on the computer til near noon today! It usually gets checked for email, etc first thing in the morning with my first cup of coffee!
Have a great week everyone, hope I'll get back here soon!
oops.......almost forgot to post this picture....I got these great Mardi Gras masks last week at a garage sale....I will take them home to Canada with me and my grandaughter will be delighted with them. I know she'll make her mom and dad each wear one too next Halloween at one of their costume events! $1.00 each, one still had the attached tag and it was 12.00....
On to other things....the weather has turned absolutely gorgeous! We are supposed to be in the 70's all week! Garage saleing this last Saturday was so much more fun with the beautiful day we had!
And I spend a couple of hours by the pool in the afternoon too!
This afternoon, my BFF Millie and I grabbed a coffee to go and went a quarter mile up the road and parked at Prospector Park where we have a bit of a different view to soak up while we enjoy our coffee.
I didn't even realize there was a little birdie perched up on this big saguaro cactus until I uploaded the pictures to my computer! CLICK ON THE PICS TO ENLARGE
I'm sure I have a zillion pictures of the mountain. I just never tire of looking at it and taking pictures of it from different spots and angles.
Theres Millie, watching me taking pictures and soaking up the sun. She's sitting on her "baby". Her 1990 Nissan Maxima lives here year round in Arizona (Millie and husband Tate return to Oklahoma City in May). We put alot of miles on "baby" between garage sales, shopping, riding around taking pictures. She runs like a clock! ......even at 20 years old!
A beautiful Ocotillo cactus infringing on a saguaro. Did you know that it takes approximately 75 years for a saguaro cactus to sprout 1 arm?....so we know that although the cactus in the picture doesn't look too large, it is around 75 years old.......it does have the beginnings of an "arm".
They get really quite huge and live to be around 200 years old.
For THE THREE MUSES Challenge this week......Quite simple.....that gorgeous background is part of a digital collage set I won over at DEZINAWORLD (thankyou so much June!)...I just had to add a few things. The lovely white doves were just googled.
My name is Lucille but I've chosen Lucy Liatriss for my blog.
I'm called Lucy by half the people I know and Liatriss has been my ebay seller name since I started selling vintage linens on Ebay in 1998.
I have done alot of sewing and many crafts plus oil painting and folkart painting over the years. I love antiques and vintage treasures, particularly linens.
I am presently drawn to altered art of all kinds and started making altered dominoes and other game pieces. I'm a wife, mother, grandmother, I'm NEVER bored, and there is never enough time in the day! Can you relate?
