My house is a disaster, I have been so neglectful. I am trying to fill some orders as I have new ones coming in. This is what my kitchen looks like. This is where I paint, no hidden/glamorous work room for me. I share it with the pizza we just had for dinner. Oh I hope we don't have any surprise visitors.
Since you all had to twist my arm so I would share some holiday signs :) Here ya go! I really enjoyed making these and they are so versatile. They are small enough that they can be hung anywhere, on your wall, on your tree even on a wreath.
Not sure why Blogger loaded them sideways??? Sorry
I think this is how I may display them in my booth hanging from a mini tree
The weather was beautiful this weekend so I managed to squeeze in some shopping. I picked up a great desk, wreath, books, brackets, vintage frames and a cute little angel. I picked up the books to use for Halloween, Joys of Home used some and wrote spells, potions etc on the spines. I wanted to do the same, however when I got them home they are old hymnals ( I didn't even open them before I bought them and didn't pay any attention to the covers.) so I don't think that would be right to use them for that. They have great patina so I will just keep them around, unaltered.
One of the frames had an old picture she is a bit mysterious/creepy. We hung her in the living room for Halloween.
The cute angel...I just love this.
I have been working on Christmas signs, do you want to see them or is it too early?
I found this website with amazing painted furniture. Their items are way out of my price range but it inspires me to paint some more furniture. Go check it out, I am sure you will be as impressed as I was.
I wanted to replace the Welcome Topiary I had painted on the picket fence. It covers our not so attractive chain link gate. With fall here I wanted something more fall like. Here is what I came up with. Whimsical stacked pumpkins wishing everyone autumn blessings. I have another window frame this size and I am already planning a winter snowman. I know it seems very early for those thoughts but I have already started getting Christmas orders. It will be here before we know it.
I picked up these great dining room chairs today. If you remember I showed my dining room and all my chairs had white slipcovers. I wanted something a bit different, these will be a nice addition. Hopefully i will be able to share the transformation soon.
