Don't you just love that bold color?! I certainly do.

Hi Everyone! I thought I'd show you the new storage piece in my studio (you've seen it in some of my open house pictures) is an eight drawer dresser that belonged to my friend Lynett. I had asked her to keep a look out for something for me and she found a few options, but none of them were right for me, but one of them was right for her.

Hi Everyone! My Fall Open House was this past weekend and it was wonderful. I'm almost at a loss for words except to say that I feel extremely blessed. I took a chance and had it Friday and Saturday because the town festival was also this weekend. Friday was the best day, Saturday was almost as good and then Sunday, I received several calls asking to come out and had several more sales and a couple of orders. The Studio was full on Friday and I'm sitting in it now and it feels empty.

Hi Everyone! One more day until my Fall Open House. I'm almost ready for it. Just a little more cleaning to do, some decorating and a couple of signs to finish up. I thought I'd show you another one of the silhouette paintings I did.

Hi Everyone! Last night I finished hand painted 6 signs for my Fall Open House on Friday and Saturday and thought I'd share my favorite one with you.
Hi Everyone! Just a few more days until my Fall Open House and I'm busy trying to complete a handful of hand painted signs and a couple of last minute projects. I thought I'd show you a couple of things I made for the guys. When I go to show or have Open Houses, I try to always have something that would be of interest to the guys. This time I went for sports silhouettes.

Hi Everyone! Just a few more days until my Fall Open House....I have a bunch of small things left to do...most of the big things are done. Today I thought I'd show you a welcome sign I made. My aunt Barb gave me an old newel post (sorry, no before pictures) that was weathered.
Using a chisel and a hammer, I took apart the three boards that made up the newel post. One of the boards became this...I painted it black, lightly sanded it, then added the pip berry wreath and the hand painted Welcome Friends sign. It will be available at my Fall Open House this weekend. Thanks for stopping by.

Hi Everyone! Things are in high gear at the Studio! My to do list should be getting shorter as I cross items off but unfortunately it seems to be growing. I keep thinking of other things I've forgotten to do. Today I'm busy putting the majority of my supplies away (a few have to stay out so I can finish a few projects) and cleaning my house. But today I thought I'd show you the project I finished up last weekend. I made this yardstick console table from 100% scrap pieces and recycled items.

Hi Everyone! One week until my Fall Open House and preparations are underway. Last night I spent some time decorating my front porch which leads directly into my Studio. Last year my friend Lynett picked up this Jenny Lind high chair which was in perfect condition but needed a facelift. I removed the safety straps (but I still have them and they can be reattached) and gave it a couple of coats of Heirloom White paint.
Hi Everyone! I'm busy getting ready for my Fall Open House next Friday but last night I went to my parents home to drop off some boards for my mom to paint for me and I was treated to supper, thanks Mom and Dad! And my mother presented me with a Fall Wreath for the front door of my Studio that she made for me!
It's perfect! And goes nicely with the other items that are on the front porch.
