Pegs to Legs

inspiration-n. 1,any influence, esp. supernatural or intuitive, that inspires thought or action; thought so suggested.

I stumbled upon these old wood pegs at an estate sale. I had no idea what I would do with them at the time, but I loved the shapes not to mention those cool boxes that they lived in. I carted them off for $1 a box. Weeks later as I was staring at the pegs, I started to see lots of tiny legs. I began sketching and before the pegs knew it they were being transformed into funky fairy legs.

So this is how my fairy "Miss Marie" was born. I'll post Miss Marie's photo tomorrow. She can also be found on my website.
Good junk (especially old junk) makes for great inspiration.
