New Items....

Sorry I have posted for a couple of weeks! A great crafter friend, who retired 5 years ago, called me and sold me all of her old unpainted items. I got everything you can think of from cake carries, old oil cans, tea pots, coffee pots, it was great!! Down side I haven't posted pictures of the items I have painted, been busy going through everything I got from her.

I feel like old Mac Donalds farm with the pictures I am posting today! I have painted my chicken items for about 9 years now but I sell out of them at every show!

Here is a set of four wood canisters that have the plastic inserts in them for easy cleaning. They also have a circle in the lids so you can peak in and see what is inside.
I got two great wood breadboxes done.

I also finished two wood letter holders.

Cows, Cows, Cows.......I got 50 cow magnets painted. This is a new cow design for this year. Don't you think there just Moovelous!

I'm working on some great Sunflower items and some bear magnets, I'll post pictures of these over the weekend.

More new items......

I found this great wicker picnic basket at a yard sale last fall, thought I would finally get it painted for my spring show. I painted the basket a soft blue and then dry brushed it with white. On the lid I painted two groupings of beautiful spring flowers. This would be a great basket to sit by a chair and store your treasures in or use it for a great family picnic!

Chickens, chickens, chickens!!! I painted 50 of my chicken magnets yesterday!

I found this great little childs chair at the DI's the other day. I painted a fun whimiscal design on it. It has been coated 3 three coats of polyacrylic for durability.
I got my paper work all sent off for my Lamoille, Nv. (outside of Elko) show this weekend. This is a great one day show that I had real good success at last year. The show date is June 27th.
The Kottage Kupboard spring show at Weber County Fairgrounds is May 5-8th.
If you have a chance please join me at both shows for some great hand painted treasures!
