I have been working on paintings to list for sale. Here are two that I am working on now.
A mermaid painting, waiting for beeswax, soon to be listed on Artfire!
Here is another painting , that will also be for sale soon.I thought I might also share some of my previous work so here is a lamp shade I painted. It has been china painted and fired several times.
What it looks like all "lit" up....
Here is a full view.... sorry it is so dark, I am a bad photographer.
Here is the shade from one of two matching lamps I have painted. My front room used to be painted a nice cranberry color, they looked nice against the rich background. Here I think they look a bit washed out.
Here is "one" of the lamps full view (the middle part was painted also).
This last weekend I stopped at a flea market/craft show at our local K of C Hall and found this neat cabinet for our bathroom for $15.00! It is much larger than the older one, and has these neat cubbies on the sides. Steve hung it up right away for me.
Aren't these dishes pretty? I found them there also....
Like I needed another set of dishes, but these were just so pretty and only one was chipped. A set of eight (Homer Laughlin), a platter, veggie bowl, sugar and creamer. (I can just here Terri and Nancy laughing, and they "think" they know how much of this stuff I have)
So there you have it. I hope this holds you for a bit Therese, (hey, I thought you were starting your blog now? Send me the link okay?)
P.S. Hey everyone...Please hop over to Michelle Wards blog. She has made some new stamps. Part of the proceeds are going to help a family that has lost their home to a fire. I do not know how long she will be doing this so hurry over! She is so sweet, and her stamps are wonderful!
