CAS meets Piercing...

Every so often I go on a piercing kick...

I love CAS cards..gussied up with some piercing...

I find it to be so relaxing..and I really like the look..

I first fell in love with piercing in 1989 when my husband and I went to Bucks County (PA) for a long weekend....I remember that we stayed at a Victorian Bed and Breakfast called The Wedgewood Inn...

Bucks County is a wonderland of fantastic shopping places..lots of Inns..bed and breakfast places..local theater....soem tourist type places like "Washington's Crossing"..and a wonderful outdoor "Craft" Fair with an extraordinary group of Artisans who sell what they create...their unique work and creativity and skills can knock you over..

There is also a little shopping area there called "Peddler's Village..with nice little shops of all sorts...set up in a a small little village with walking streets

This is where I found a gorgeous little lamp with a pierced shade a shop called The Shady Lady...when that lamp was turned on..the shade was so beautiful....I had that lamp..with the pretty shade... until a few years ago..when we remodelled the house..when the contractor moved it....broke the base of the lamp..and crushed the shade...(kind of a sad day for me..because I always loved that lamp and the way it looked when lit up...)

I always say...if I ever go back to Buck's County...I'll make a bee-line for The Shady lady and replace that lamp...(and maybe buy a few others)...

Piercing is so relaxing...and it adds a nice touch to CAS cards..either as a focal point..or as a small detailed touch for interest and texture....

So what do I think about piercing?...(as if you haven't already gathered)

I'd lean towards saying...its wonderful...puts your head in a "happy place" as you immerse yourself in it......and can be addictive...
