you have to see this ... from WWC, of course


I just love WWC: Where Women Create.


Today, they feature the beautiful work of artist Dara Dimagno ... who says ...


"I am a self-proclaimed antique junkie. Like a pack rat, I am always hunting for things that I can transform. Looking for new ways to use forgotten parts and bits of flotsam is challenging and oh so much fun. My art is my therapy after a hectic day at my real job. After my children have drifted off to sleep I get to spend the night and wee hours of the morning playing artist. Using odd bits and pieces of vintage treasures I create one-of-a-kind wearable art pieces, holiday ornaments and talisman wall art. Creating keepsakes that capture moments in time, I like to incorporate antique photos, old buttons, buckles, the words from pre-1930 books, vintage hardware, and even old German doll heads into my pieces.... "




VISIT WWC at the link just above to read more about Dara, to see more of her beautiful work, and to enter WWC's "Days of Christmas" contest (again!).
