More new items painted.....

This is a vintage metal stacking picnic tin. I have painted two of these with my chicken design. I wrapped the handle in some homespun black and tan checked material. The inside of each tin has been left natural so you can use them.
Here's two more of my magnet designs. I have 100 of these done!

This is a vintage picnic basket that I have painted a cute cow and sunflower design on. The handles and the inside of the basket is coverd by green and tan homespun material.
Stay tuned for more!!!!

A few more new items for spring shows....

Here's a few more vintage, glass, Mrs. Buttersworth bottles. I painted two of each of the above designs.
This is an old coffee pot that didn't have a lid for. I first painted it black and then covered the black base coat with blue. I sanded off some of the blue for an old look. On it I painted a sheep and some vines, it says "We do not remember days, we remember moments". In the top I added some spanish moss, a child size cup and saucer which is painted to match the coffee pot. Inside the cup is a battery powered flicker tea light.

I found this un-painted wood plate at the DI's the other day. I painted clouds, stars and a cute sleepy bear on it, I added a ribbon for hanging. This would be a great addition to any childs room.

Chairs that I painted for two of my Grandaughters for Christmas

I painted a vintage school chair for Hannah for Christmas. It is painted with a light pink base, darker pink and lavendar stripes and then I added some mauve lady bugs. I will paint more of these for my spring shows but the chairs will be different styles, but they will all be vintage school chairs ( I have a ton of these in my craft room).
I found a wood doll highchair at a thrift store two weeks before Christmas, I painted it for Beka and her babies. It's painted light pink with sparkles. I added flowers and a big lady bug. If I find anymore of these I will paint them up for my shows but I don't know if I'll find any.
The first part of next week I will add some pictures of new items I am finishing this weekend.
