It's Raggedy Time!!!

I found this GREAT old highchair at a yard sale a few weeks ago and decided to paint Raggedy Ann and Andy on it. I based it in a red color and then a beige color. I sanded it here and there so some of the red shows through. I then painted Raggedy Ann, Andy and a teddy bear on the seat. This highchair does not have a tray but it is still a great item!
This is a round suitcase (not very old) that I painted the same Raggedy Ann and Andy design on. I added a red bow to Raggedy Ann and also to the handle. What a cute place to hide some of your sewing items or for your daughter to hide some of her doll clothes in.

This is a great vintage suitcase with great insides! Most vintage suitcases you find have water damage inside or smell musty but this one does not! I added Raggedy Ann, Andy and teddy to the front.
All three items have several coats of a polyacrylic clear coat finish for added durability.
All three of these items will be at the Kottage Kupboard, Weber County Fairgrounds, next week.

Here's a few more items that I have painted...1st show is in 3 weeks!

This is either a short bread box or a wood lap desk/storage box, it is solid wood with a hinged lid. I re-stained it and then painted two great little teddy bears on the lid. The back is around 8" tall and it tapers down to around 4" in the front.
Here is another vintage tin plate that I painted a rock cottage on. This is a special order so it will not be at my first show, but I will have others there for sale.

This is a recycled wood welcome sign from years past. I repainted the entire sign giving it a lot more character. This would look great hanging by your front door!
I'm sorry I haven't posted more pictures, with my first show just 3 weeks away and I have diligently painting!
Make sure you come and check out my booth at the Kottage Kupboard, Weber County Fairgrounds, Ogden Utah, May 5th - 8th.

New Items Painted......

I painted another great cottage design on two vintage tin plates. This one has a garden path going through a gate up to a very quaint little cottage. Sorry about the glare in the picture, I like to take these pictures outside but yesterday it was snowing!
This is a great heart shaped pink purse that I painted a very cute teddy bear on!

I found this great watering can, base coated it in blue, added some crackle and painted some flowers and blue berries on it. I added some greenery to it to make it a great table decoration.

New Items........

I painted three vintage tin plates with this great cottage design on them. One plate was a special order but the other two will be at my spring show. I am working on 4 more plates, two with a different cottage and two with a great rooster on them. I will post pictures as soon as they are done.
This is a great white bread box with some tea stained lace on the handle. I added a small vintage frame to the front that says "Faith". This would be a great addition to any kitchen!

This is a vintage roll top bread box that I painted a great blue color and then distressed it. I added a sheep, three salt box houses and a flag that says "Remember". This is a smaller bread box that would fit great on any size counter.
Hope that everyone has a great Easter weekend, it's snowing here!!
