Short stories.

It wasn't suppose to end that way , but Vick knew if Mateo 
Didn't leave immediately one way or another...they were going to kill him. I picked him up. Walked
Up that humid hot stretch of pavement , leading to the safe zone. 
Check ins , double locks, security pass .
He looked unfamiliar, red as beets beaten to a pulp
Swollen eyes that I still loved , cheeks that had cried & dried
Up the crazy river ....catch the blue trolley
It would take him a whole day to reach his appointments
When the old building was not torn down, he would wait.
I would wait..the river gives up her bread and wafers to those 
Who antepasados cultivated this land.
"Can she really feed us" asks Emilio, thin frail son of Mateo
At nine years old, he knows the situation was grave and he's starving 
For attention ...meaning really to say 'can she really help us?'
His mom needed her son back , with his son. It was the only option
Send them back to Florida. Would it happen?

Summer Hats UpCycle

 Hello community of creatives.
Theses are the hats as I found them 

The label says 100% Linen, which made it a lot 
Easier to sew on

Found a vintage lace collar on a shirt, carefully removed it to apply on my 
Sequin cap
Bag of studs from the house of Huerta , I added them for transformation 
Blue yellow enamel triangle that was once an 80$ earring , since losing its 
Partner and pair in the mid 90$ ,it makes a stunning comeback as the 
Crowning jewel for glamour in San Antonio that reason..we look twice!
Side angles and slimmer shots. One lone diamond stud awaits your touch
Shine a new glow and reap the wild wind...prance and dance to the beat of new.
This can be worn with denim and white with low wedges or sexy flats.
Create a bohemian look with a neo classic ethnic twang.

This becomes the Veiled Lace baseball Cap ...a sure fire head turner 
Be ready to explain your creation, cause it looks smashing 

Now this was the most fun piece..using plastic from a Jurassic park play tent set
I used the vibrant colors to lift up the hat worked by adding the stud element 
That is hot on the current fashion trend.
Hope you enjoy these up cycled creations ..that were created from items I search and hunt for from different Goodwills in the San Antonio area.  *sponsored 
The before shot.....very DALLAS .....JOAN COLLINS.
