"My Not So Still Life"

I was thinking about all the things in life that fill our days. At times, the minutiae seems insignificant, but in reality, these are the details that add depth and character and color to our lives.

This assemblage is created in a mahogany knife box, covered in New York ‘stock exchange’ paper, reflecting the results of the day. The collection includes a small wind-up music box, a skeleton key, a vintage fishing lure, and a small wooden fish. A glass cigar tube contains marbles and dice that move freely inside the tube. Very fun! (click on image to enlarge)


  1. I can't begin to imagine where you find all the things you place in your assemblages, but I sure love that pig and carpenter's pencil. They both caught my eye when I first saw the assemblage. Lovely and colorful, too!

  2. Very creative and a great use of all your goodies!!
