A License Plate Collection...

NOTE: linking up today to Donna @ Funky Junk Interiors Saturday Nite Special.

So, this may not TECHNICALLY be wall art, but it made me think of Donna!


I've read that if you have at least three of something, 
you can call it a collection.

Well, then....

I guess, a collection I have.

 This sweet little black and white baby was "gifted" to me by my friend Janice. 

The 66 is the year my sweetheart was born!

She just had a big 'ol box of license plates sitting in her garage for years. 
She inherited them from her husband when they got married.

Of course, when I spied them, with ooohs and ahhhs, 
she was kind enough to let me take my pick.

Janice is just like that! 
She will drive MILES out of her way, just to bring me a mid-day mocha.

The world needs MORE Janice's, let me tell ya!

Well, pick I did. 
How ever could I pass these up?

These are SO my colors lately.

Don't you just LOVE the reverse colors?

British Columbia - circa 1959 - clearly had good taste!

But, even though I'm in a blue/brown/ivory phase right now, 
my all-time stand-by, RED, still rocks!!!

I love this one for its rusty patina and the fact that it has the letter T.

...and then there's this one.

This one I found a while ago.

I LOVE the fact that it has the letter P and the letter T -
together, like Phillip and me.

A 19 - the age I was when our first son was born.

...and 4.2.3. - my birthday month and day....

So, admittedly, I have a thing for numbers and letters, who doesn't?

AND I know our imaginations can read anything into numerology 
to fit our needs, but this one hit close to home.

This is the day, month, year, my littlest sister was married. 
This is NOT her plate - she doesn't even live in Oregon,
but I text her the photo!

I'm weird that way, I guess...

 Then there's this door plate.

It was our room number when we stayed in Frisco last month.


Yep! 510.

The FAVORITE number of our son, Ty.

You see, he drives a vintage Datsun 510 with a personalized license plate that says
"JNY 510" 

A play on words for Johnny 5 - the robot in the movie Short Circuit.

Even more interesting....
the first time he registered the car,
his tags were May (5) and expired in 2010 (10).
He just loved that!

I guess the apple doesn't far fall from the tree!

A "YOU-NIQUE" Sneak Peek.....

Just a sneak peek of a project of mine being featured 
in the APRIL 2011 issue of 

To say I'm excited, would be an understatement.

 This project is SO personal to me.

ALL about my THREE SCHIEFER boys.


Life's Journey. 
Days we'll never forget.

Ain't that the truth....?


I almost forgot, o.k. I didn't forget really, 
I just didn't have the time to share...

...BUT I did, I swear, give GREAT THANKS immediately 


John of Meyer Imports

I created last year for my blog friend, Angie.

Angie, at Hopemore Studio is VERY, VERY creative 
and it has been fun getting to know her online this last year.
While your over visiting her blog, cause I just know you're curious,
be sure to visit her Etsy store too!!!
Be sure to visit Meyer Imports too. 

They have a fun blog and great store for all things glittery...

Rolling along....

I know I've been MIA from blogging for a long while.

Life these last few months has been a little crazy, to say the least.

Last year we purchased an old building
for our business - with another business. 

Now we are one big happy family under one roof.

Professional roommates, if you will.

Our oldest son moved out.

Our middle son joined the Army.

Our youngest son, officially, just started his first job.

Busy, busy, busy.

I've made some new, creative friends.

Cavorted with old, creative friends.

Created some new pieces that will be published soon. More on that later. 

Have lots of others in the works, but don't we all?

I'm still daydreaming.

I'm still treasure hunting...and dragging home way too much...but who's keeping track?
(maybe the bloated garage, greenhouse, spare rooms??)
Yeah, Yeah. It's a thing with me...
but no matter what....

I'm happy to still be rolling right along....

** this little metal skate was found ALL ALONE, missing its mate. 

How could I possibly NOT give it a home? Huh?
