Absence and an Ampersand

I cannot believe that it's been so long since I last posted!  There has been a lot going on so I haven't been able to do much creating.  I've missed it, and am trying to get back in the groove.

One of the things that kept me busy was that hubby and I were on a quest to find our first ever RV.  We were either on the go or the Internet before finally finding the one that makes our heart go pitter patter.  We both love it!

If you'd like to see it, click here to view pictures of it on my Smiles For Many Miles blog. It just occurred to me that because of the name, that blog will be perfect for posting our RV adventures too.  (It originated as a spin off of a newsletter that I did for family and friends.)  Many of our travels will be weekend trips around Texas and Oklahoma for now but there will be times when we can take off.  I look forward to it all!

Now for something artsy.  This dark blue ampersand is sitting on my worktable.  I got it at a nearby antique mall.  

I didn't like the color and it was much 
too dark for the wall I have in mind.

I collaged it with dictionary pages, and 
painted it with diluted acrylic paint.

I like it much better but I'm trying to decide if I want to add three fairly large, dark purple dots down the center or perhaps I should call it done. The dots would match the wall it's going on.  

Any thoughts?

Have a fabulous day!

Tootles All,
