I like this nosy old lady,
and love the British term "nosy parker"
for a busybody or inquisitive person.
Another old escutcheon, this one with a key hole.
When we were in Baton Rouge, I found some more escutcheons,
but they were expensive,
and I won't pay more than a few dollars for them.
Architectural salvage has other uses than for my Eccentrics,
and I admit that if I were to need an escutcheon
for restoration purposes, I'd be willing to pay more.
I did find a few things I might be able to use,
that fit in my parsimonious budget,
but right now, I'm still working on the characters
started last week.
The studio MUST be straightened up.
Complete chaos in there makes
it difficult to find things I just put down.
When working on multiple pieces at once,
I pull out all kinds of fabric, embellishments,
found objects, flea market finds, etc.
Until I decide which way to go for each piece,
things are a total mess.
I dread going up there!
It takes so long to clean and straighten.
All I want to do is play.
