GROW ROSES by Mary Maxim
Hello and allow me to introduce myself. I am Angie Naron and I live in Chicago. Retired from secretarial work, I now devote my life to gardening, photography, making collages, creating one of a kind cloth dolls, collecting vintage photographs (I have thousands), buying and selling antiques (I have been a dealer for nearly 20 years) and playing with my dog Harvey. I've recently begun collecting vintage paper dolls - a hot collectible.
This, my first collage for The Kollage Kit, theme of the week: Books, features some elements of my favorite pastimes - that is a paper doll pajama and pillow cut out, the woman known as Mary Maxim is a disembodied vintage photograph and while the roses are a bit larger than the ones I grow, the ornamental garden urn is something I am constantly looking for to add interest in my own garden. The dog is a tip of the hat to my dog Harvey who is my constant shadow.
