It's Been Awhile.....

Hi All!!! It has been awhile since I posted last. Life has been rather hectic here of late, but I have been trying to stay current with visiting your blogs, and leaving comments when I can. I am hoping for things to calm down some, and allow me to get back on a normal schedule, but we all know how that goes.
In the meantime though I have had an opportunity to get a few new pieces done. This door crown above is one of Terrye French's new spring designs, and I just had to paint it. Vintage buttons have been added to the penny rug border, for a little different twist.

I found this old metal spatula at a tag sale. I painted it black, and added this white chicken design...another design by Terrye French. Have to ever found some of these old things, and wondered what stories they could tell? This piece had been well used, and it was fun to give it a new life as a decorative item for someone's home.

I also painted up this wood holder that was another trash to treasure project. I have several more pieces that I would like to complete using these cute chickens, so hopefully within the next couple of weeks I will have more to share. These are all available for purchase in my Etsy shop.

Till next time.......God Bless!!
