What I've Been Working On...

Here's a few projects I've been working on this week....A vintage typewriter (love those!) on a canvas and then I tried this birdcage on a large one...

I surrounded the perimeter of the frames with buttons from my collection...I love the marbled effect of my coffee staining...not sure if I can recreate that (but I'll try)

This wood box is a yard sale find. A cast off from the day we all loved "country". I primed and painted it off-white. I did a little chalkboard "inset" and had fun with it.

These are my recycled Starbuck's drink bottles painted the same Rustoleum Heirloom White.

I added some branches from my tree.

and here's the sunflower pillow I just did....found the art on my friend Dawn's The Feathered Nest and just had to turn it into a pillow. Doesn't it look great next to one from Ticking and Toilles' etsy shop?

and here's a "before" plastic pot from the JoAnn's 50% clearance bin...

and here they are after a little cherry stain was added and a bay leaves stencil along with a monogram stamp.

and last, but certainly not least, here is a gift from nature. We found these eggs right in the gravel of our driveway edge.

A cute little bird (like a sandpiper) laid these and she is watching over them (and so are we...)

You just never know where you might find the beauty of nature....
