" I have always looked upon decay as being just as wonderful and rich as an expression of life as growth." - Henry Miller

Hey everyone, I am just giving a little update on my disintegration project, a la Seth over at Altered Page.

The copper and metals are aging very nicely, thank you. I DO love that copper. The patina of "life" just works so well.

The paper is curling and getting moldy......WOO HOO. Some of the wire has rusted.

If you look closely, you can even see some of the mold. What fun......

The "BLING"? Well that's another story. They are left overs from a time when I was making jewelry and adding brooches to necklaces. The brooches were purchased at Target!! I was hoping that they would rust.....that the stones would fall out........discolor, bend, fall off, break...ANYTHING!!!! I figure, when archeologists come to my neighborhood someday, 100 years from now, 1000 years from now, those damn Target brooches will still look as good as new.

Happy Holidays to everyone!!!

See you next week after I've been........here.
