How are you?
It's a perfect spring morning with a slight breeze making the windchimes sing...I love that!
So let me begin by showing what the GIVEAWAY is for my OWOA.......I didn't have it ready in the original post so hopefully people will see it now as it all ends on Friday night so it's not too late to comment on that post.
This square-ish dessert size plate is actually bright white (monitors may show it more ivory). I hand painted it and it is dishwasher safe. I do recommend, however, that it be used for decoratice purposes rather than for food. The winner will also receive a wood plate easel with which to display the plate if so desired. (not shown).
So if you are interested in winning the plate (above) giveaway go to THIS post and leave a comment.
Here are some things I've been up to of late: (I LOVE LOVE LOVE doing things for home accessories)
I had a couple of dinner plates with a small chip on the edge so turned them in to decorative plates.
Kitchen bar stools got a makeover and the kitchen island was repainted
Soooo I know I have mentioned I've been in the process of redoing/reorganizing my studio......I think it may be the 1,264th time I've done so ...........but hey, that's how I roll.
I am not yet ready to show the entire space yet but here are a few snippets.......
Well I made it from a mannequin (woman's torso) I had stored and the base is from a small end table we had with a dowel added to make the form higher. I am pretty proud of the result as I cannot afford the real vintage ones. (I actually made this a while ago and have been meaning to show it here)
And finally, SHE who watches over me..............
This statue was my Mom's and it's old.....the other I didn't secure the corbel shelf properly and she fell.......I was heartbroken...........I sat for some time gluing back all the pieces I could and thankfully she still looks ok. The shelf has since been made extra secure.
(Oh and the fairy.......she's metal and will be moved to another wall)
What you see in the mirror is the closet and the new closet curtain.....
Like I said all will be revealed soon.
So there you have it..........just a few things keeping me busy most days.
I am soooo ready to put paint to canvas
AND to do some fabric art.........
I'm pretty sure I shared this before (it hangs above the shelf over the microwave)....I am going to do more wall hangings like this:
Well my friends now you see why I haven't been blogging regularly......
Speaking of Blogs.......have you noticed a decrease of late? Within the blogging community? I truly don't plan on abandoning my blog, it's like a journal and I need to get back to it more often. July will make EIGHT years! Wow! I wish it were like the early days when people really kept up with theirs and we all cross connected in a larger way. I admit comments mean a lot to me although I don't blog for them.....it's just nice to hear from people now and then. You know?
Now it's time to finish this post that took me 2 days to do.
REMEMBER.........if you want to win the plate at the top of this post just leave a comment on my OWOA post and tomorrow evening I will draw the winner! (oh and visit the other blogs in OWOA listed in the right side bar)
Have a wonderful day and weekend! Any big plans? Any projects you're doing? Do tell.
