New Item!

Hi All!! I wanted to share a piece that I just completed over the weekend. A friend of mine sent me a wooden tray, and said she knew I would find something perfect to paint on it. Well after staring at it forever I chose this design by Terrye French. I wanted the piece to look very aged, so I painted it an antique white, and then aged and distressed it. The background had to look just as old so I spent quite some time getting it just the way I wanted it, and it looks to have been around grandma's house for a good long while.......I am pleased.

My goal this holiday season is to paint a new piece everyday, and I have been working  hard to achieve that goal. In between orders, and everyday life it proves to be quite the challenge on some days. I have so many ideas floating around in my head, I just hope I get the opportunity to share some more of them with you soon. Have a Wonderful Tuesday and as always.......God Bless.

Monday Marketplace!

Good Monday Morning Blogging Friends!! I hope everyone had a safe and wonderful Halloween! I saw so many adorable costumes, and fun was had by all here, despite the rather chilly temps!
This morning I wanted to share with you one of my favorite Etsy shops! Annie of Homespun Annie creates these wonderful tucks, and she has been busy preparing for the busy holiday season ahead.

Annie loves making primitive tucks and ornies and combining them in gatherings, using old, rusty and battered pieces she pick ups from antique and thrift stores. She has been crafting now for 23 years, and her quality is unsurpassed. I am a proud owner of a few of Annie's wonderful creations.
