Studio Shots

I'm back working in my studio.  Well, I never really left.  Since some of you have said you enjoy seeing group shots of what I'm working on, I thought I'd share a few pics.



Lots of white, grey, and a touch of black.






I transferred my romantic lady onto two ornate plaques I gave my "Old World" finish.  I also copied her onto photo paper, decoupaged the image onto a small rectangular piece of wood, and attached a magnet to the back. See her in the lower right?





I think I may turn the old grey fixture on the  left into a cloche.




Altered bottles, and of course frames.




I found several vintage bridal pieces at an estate sale last year, and love the way they look.




I unearthed quite a few vintage metal lamp bases like this cherub.  I'll show you what I did with some of them in a future post.




Love these vintage metal numbers.




I still have to add a little something to my carriers, and boxes.






I had to laugh when some of you thought I'd have to work hard to reload after my last show.  This is just a tiny drop of all the projects I have going on, and all the stuff I'm digging through in the garage.  I'm finding things I forgot I had. I'm taking full advantage of the beautiful weather. I'm, organizing, cleaning, purging, and redesigning.  Would you like to see some of my piles?

I still have furniture to get to as well.  I'll let you know what I decide to do with this backless, cushionless, settee.


See ya soon.

You've got some great things, Rosemary! I really don't know how you part with some of it! : ) I am definitely going to look for those frames that reminded me of yours that I saw at an antique mall a few weeks ago. I should have gotten them! I would love to give your transfer technique a try and I know I could use those little pieces somewhere.
