Busy

I'm preparing for my first show this year (I took a break from them over the winter) this coming weekend, so I'm pretty busy in my studio, and garage.  I'll be sharing random pics as I work this week.  Today, I worked on small items.  Like these tags I added vintage images  and dried flowers to.



I've given quite a few items white plaster-like finishes. I'll have to share how I got the peeling finish on the finial I created at some point.



I made fleur de lis pieces, and did some silverleafing.




I turned this rock into a pretty paperweight by adding a romantic image.







I turned one of my photos into magnets.




I filled vintage bottles with lavender,



and, painted, painted, painted.









Gotta take a break.   I'll be sharing  furniture redesigns, finds I didn't have to do anything to (yeah), and I may get in a tutorial before the weekend.  See ya soon.
