Old Yet New Collages

Hope your week is going better than mine. Let alone all that uncalled for cold wet and depressing weather, the girls were skunked during our walk yesterday morning. Pictures wouldn't begin to describe the smell! The only saving grace was that it wasn't a direct hit. But if you ever need to know:
1 litre hydrogen peroxide
1/4 cup baking soda
2 tsp.  dish soap
Rub it in and rinse with warm water about 10 - 15 minutes later and repeat. Do not store with a lid as it could explode!!

Later today I will be hanging yet another impromptu show and these are some of the pieces. As I've had absolutely no heads up about this, all I can do is go over some older pieces that I still have.

Enjoy the rest of the week, the sun should be out with the promise of warm hugs.


  1. Barbara--Your collages are beautiful.

    Now, as one of your new blog readers, I'm going to have to assume that your 'girls' are dogs? :):):) That recipe of yours might come in handy. There was a skunk at our back gate last night (never seen one that close to our house before). I guess we need to check first before letting our dog out at night. Must be the season.

    Happy Thanksgiving.

  2. thank you!

    yes, the "girls" are my dogs.

    the skunks seem to be around in the autumn and then again from February to April.

    My last experience was in the backyard with my first dog who had a direct hit. You don't want to be near that!
