Work in Progress 3

I go through "spurts" of craftiness. When I have time (which is hard with teaching and a two-year old), I LOVE to paint, work on little projects, and rearrange my house...

I found this rub-on decal at Wal-Mart.

This is a mirror I bought five years ago; I painted it to match the fabric in Ava's room.

This is an embroidered handkerchief that I found in my grandmother's cedar chest.

I also found this apron in her cedar chest, so I cut out the bird to frame:)

I saw a cute idea in a magazine to frame family member's recipes.
Here's my mother-in-law's pie recipe. I'm working on doing more now.

I painted this cross and framed it in a "Goodwill frame." :)

My computer cabinet had clear glass that showed way too much junk! My sister suggested covering the glass with left-over fabric from another project. I like how it turned out.

The large frame was another find at my grandmother's house.
It is from the 1950s. I painted the frame black and painted over the print.

  1. That is a great idea to frame old family mementos and recipes. I think I will do that with a hankerchief I have of my grannys. Your paints are so pretty too.


I love reading comments! Thanks:)
