Invited myself to 'Paint Party Friday'. Woke up this morning and had to make good on my word, and the only way I could make good on my word this a.m., was if I had created during the week (and I did). So here you go - all works in progress!
Some of the GOURDS arrived this week! ... soon to be Halloween pumpkin creatures created by me, born and raised in KY and GA.
Remember Easter Bunny (the vintage ironing board)? Well I had Rog cut the bottom off the ironing board before I created Bunny and the twins so she'd be a more stable Mom. I hate to throw anything away!
The piece that Rog took off made a perfect watermelon slice of Spring/Summer. Rog is the muscle behind most of my repurposed creations. I design my quirky creation and he does most of my home-based 'workshop' adjustments. He carved or sawed my little 'bite' right where I wanted it (thx Rog). It still needs SEEDS and WORDS, stands perfectly, and is reversible!
... bought these vintage sock stretchers at "Boomerang Used Furniture and Funky Stuff, Ltd." in Plymouth, NH. GREAT STUFF there! You can get some great prices at consignment and thrift stores. Bought them before Christmas, left them near the Christmas tree, puppy chewed one of the toes, had to sand and adjust to remove the teeth marks and painted them red. Another W.I.P.! Love the WORDS, "Peace on Earth", but it needs more ... perfect holiday door decoration or hanging from a old stone hearth at Christmas.
