Talk about a before and after!
From pile of sticks and twigs... these two little birdies did a complete makeover for absolutely nothing. Notice the lovely and timeless touch of the little twigs on the left extending well beyond the initial nest bowl... What a creative and imaginative use of the maple twig. I'm sure soon birdies everywhere will extending wisteria vine and honeysuckle twigs in nests everywhere!
Chairy with a pink pillow from K Mart and Daisyboo's zebra toy. How many of you have dogs who love toys. She's my first, and I love it that she loves her toys! She leaves them everywhere, just like a 3 year old!
Ok, here is a meadow painting i did a while back, it's a pretty large painting, and it's so plain that i keep thinking i need to add cows or sheep, but then whenever i start to, I decide I like it just the way it is...
My friend found this old chippy frame at the flea market for practically nothing... It's huge... and so i grabbed the painting to see if it would fit, especially since framing stuff costs more than the actual piece of art half the time!
Anyway, the frame is a little too small, but the whole canvas can be pulled off of the stretchers, and put on smaller stretchers and totally be made to fit this frame for a few bucks... So, Watch For Frames at the Flea Market!! This would make a great mirror too!
Isn't this frame just awesome!
and as you can see, the integrity of the painting is not affected by taking a little off the sides...
(you can see the hanging wire in front because i just set the painting behind it for a quick look)
Cool little tablecloth at "The Elegant Relic" in Mebane, NC
And look what Lacy, the clever and amazingly talented woman at the Elegant Relic did... she took one of those wooden crate thingys you see everywhere, like grocery stores, i don't know what you call them.. Anyway, she hung it on the wall and put vintage birdie prints on it... this is soooo cool!
Here is an original oil painting of Peonies I did. It is for sale for $350.00 plus shipping, just email me if you're interested....
