It's larger than I realized on, but cute & fun to think how earrings were 'back in the day....'

Mara Lee at 225 Water Street • Circa 1864

A treasure hunter and gluer of things, when my fingers aren't stuck to a camera or keyboard, who works, lives and loves our beautiful historic brick & mortar in small town USA.

    A historic brick and mortar, smack dab in the middle of small town USA. Oh, the stories we could tell.

Well, hello there!
Glad you stopped by!

This is a collection of what I've gathered and glued.

A friend once shared this unknown quote with me and it rings true ...

When a certain artist who makes mirrors, tables & bowls decorated with images, trinkets, tile fragments & often hidden words in the designs was asked what her artwork meant to her she said: "I think I like it because it tells so much about my story." Or anyone's life, for that matter... “Life smashes things to bits and you glue it back together to make something beautiful with the pieces."

Thank you for your interest in my art.

Please contact me if you have any questions.

All the best,
Mara Lee
