A Few New Things To Share........

Hey everyone! It has been crazy busy here this week! I hope you all have had a chance to get out and enjoy some of this wonderful spring weather. I have just been so itchin' to get out and clean flower beds, but it is still just a little early for that here in Ilinois. It is wonderful though to be able to grab a cup of coffee and go and enjoy the sunshine, after so many weeks of dreariness.

Don't know about you all, but sunshine puts a spring in my step, and I get really anxious to clean, organize and create. So here are a few new things that I did this week. I was blessed beyond measure this week when two dear friends sent me a wonderful box of goodies to paint on. This snall trencher was one of the items, and it made the perfect container for some pears I had been wanting to paint. Isn't it just that trencher! I listed this in my Etsy shop, and it sold witnin minutes! Gotta love that!

Since I have received so many requests to offer these pears in my Etsy shop, I wanted to let you all know they are now available as a set or individual. Sorry the set with the trencher bowl included was a OOAK item....hoping to find more one day!

Also included in my box of goodies was this fab cutting board. I have always loved this design by Susan Burd, and this piece finally gave me the chance to paint it. My camerea just didn't want to pick up the warm tones that are on this piece, but believe me it is prim to the max........very old and worn.

Now this piece I found at my local GW......I love recipes, and I never have enough storage for them, how about you? I painted this in a deep Rookwood Red, and then added a warm beige to the front. Then I sanded yet again to bring the red through, and it it turned out great. I added a real rusty tin star to it and there you have it........perfectly prim.

Till next time........Blessins to All!
