OK friends... I have not been under a rock. Just busy with my latest adventures, projects, treasure finds and more. Ready for to an update?
|I decided to use them on crystal candleholders. Beautiful!|
|A linen table runner|
|Do you know what this is?|
|I found it in a thrift store in the mountains.|
|It's got little snaps that you pull together to make it stand up.|
|Mom told me that it would be used for serving pastries. Very cool. Of course, I'd assume that with the first use, it would be stained. Right? Unless you are serving fat free pastry? And WHY would we want that?|
|I found this basket in Blowing Rock, NC and fell in love with it.|
|I found this welcome embroidery piece in a thrift shop. I think it is probably something mass produced because I've seen several of these. I like it anyway!|
|This is one of my recent paintings. Something a bit different but fun.|
|I think they are teak. The finish is in fair condition. The seats have been recovered.|
|I love vintage linens and linens with handwork. I found this sheet today. It will look great turned down on a bed.|
|I couldn't resist this Chaps comforter. I found two silk pillows with trim that match perfectly. |
|I found this stained (but not stained?) glass piece at a thrift store for half price - a whopping $14 - about 6 months ago. I wasn't sure what I'd do with it but couldn't pass it up. It's engraved with the artist's name and dated 1983.|
|So... what do you think? My dear friend, Lydia, shared some quilting fabric with me and I decided that it was perfect for my stained glass scene!|
|I love the batik fabric and the vibrant colors.|
|Snow on the mountain top. With the temperatures in the 100's it was a nice thought!|
|I found this little (2-3" tall) crystal bud vase for $1 at Goodwill.|
|Wilton cream and sugar... $2|
|My latest painting. I can't decide if it needs more or not. I have a tendency to keep going until I ruin a good painting. It's a peaceful scene I think so I guess I'm leaving it as is. It's similar to my favorite painting I've done, Autumn Fire.|
|And finally... a photo I shot of a butterfly that was enjoying the flowers in the backyard while I was painting. God... the master artist!|
There's even more I haven't shown you. I'll catch you up with more later! If anyone knows an expert in Mid Century Modern furniture, I'd love to find out more about the chairs!
OH... My youngest heads to college this Friday. I'm going to try not to embarrass him by having a total meltdown. Prayers are appreciated!
Thanks for stopping by!
