Buried Treasure from 4-30-09

This is a post we made on 4-30-09!  It happens to be one of Lyle’s favorites… has the Bubble Dancers on it. If you visit Seth Apter’s blog, The Altered Page ( you will see many posts that people would like others to revisit.  Maybe you missed it that day, or maybe you couldn’t remember where you saw something…..take a look, it’s probably here!

Crows and Owls and Cats Oh My!

owl1164medium_editedSo what do they look like to you?  I say Owls…..Lyle says cats…..she wanted owls, though……looks good for printing on shrink to make earrings!  I’ll give it a whirl!

Now for the crows!  They look like fun to me!


And last but not least, my favorite kitties!  I have the stamp—–It’s mine, all mine!


Please remember to take a  picture  of Your “Disintegration” tomorrow! We’ll have a picture of Lyle’s on the blog tomorrow May 1st!  If you are in doubt about what I am speaking of, please go to Seth Apter’s blog ( and read up!

Talk to everyone tomorrow!

    Artful Blessings,

  10. I LOVE the owls, they look like owls to me! Have you read the owl service, lots of patterned owls in that story, check it out!!

    i have been waiting….

  12. And Lyle said………Thank you to all of you kind souls who commented on my “Buried Treasure”. I love carving and printing the stamps, (thanks to Anne Bagby) and I am so glad to hear they make you smile! That has always been my goal—to make you smile! Many Thanks!


  13. Hello Lyle – they’re cats, for sure. Owls don’t have noses like that (being the owl lover that I am)! Isn’t this collaboration one of Seth’s best yet! So very inspiring to see these dug up treasures! Love Debs

  14. Fun art – love the cats – fabulous – what a wonderful talent to have.

  15. these are just fabulously and fun!! i very much adore your treasure and the smiles it brought me. thank you!!

  16. I follow your blog and it was good to see those crows and cats again.

  17. Really enjoyed the owls/cats (okay morphing beasties, LOL) at the top of the post, but those crows, what a hoot!

  18. I’m so glad to have found your site! Lyle was kind enough to leave a comment on my Morpheus Box and the Frog and Toad story (which was probably a bit sentimental and long:) to use for Buried Treasure). But he said he was a Frog and Toad fan too!
    I’ll be back again to visit – thanks to Seth!

  19. p.s. I love the posts you chose – the kitties are awesome and I do think the owls look like cats but if the ears were up a bit higher on the head? WHO am I to say…

  20. this is my first visit (thanks to Seth) and another reason for me to blow him tons of kisses … so loving the fabulous bubble dancing crows … as well as the kitty stamp … and the first one, too(though I have to admit it looks more like a bear to me).

    Just seeing the sidebar photo’s has me knowing I’d like to come back when I have a bit more time for exploring.

  21. Cool artwork, what wonderful buried treasure.

  22. Fabulous Bubble Dancing Crows! Its not everyday I use all those words in one sentence. I love them. Creepy and whimsical. Just my cup of tea.
