Sunday morning in the studio

It's a quiet Sunday morning here ...  
I'm spending a few uninterrupted hours in the studio this morning creating and enjoying the solitude...

I've been gathering old books for some time now, I adore their faded timeworn covers, yellowed pages, and rich textures ...not to mention the wonderful illustrations!

I have a stash of old spines that have been lurking on my worktable begging for a makeover. I think they are just right as they are now ... but, I can't resist playing around ... I'm hoping to convert them into bookmarks with old world charm.

What do you have your creative hands on today?

A week of hearts ...day No.4

A week of hearts ... day No.4

Good (snowy) morning all ... I hope everyone in the wake of the latest winter weather is safe and sound. We'll be huddled inside today maybe getting some projects done, but most likely watching movies and drinking hot chocolate!

I hope you like today's heart ... and I can't wait to see which one is your favorite !!

Heart day No.2

Day two of a week of hearts ...

This heart was super fun to make today.
The assortment of vintage cars reminds me of the Valentine's conversation heart candies!!

I'm enjoying creating these hearts so much, I've decide to do a new one each day this week.

If you liked any of yesterday's ironstone I used in the red and white dish heart, I have listed dome pieces for sell over in the Etsy shop.

Happy Valentine's week ...

Happy Valentine's week !!

Yesterday was all about linens ...
... today will be more vintage ironstone.

Featuring, you guessed it, red and white transferware in honor of Valentine's Day.

I pulled out all the dishes and had fun setting up this heart, I can never resist the urge to create ...

Wishing all of you the sweetest of weeks !!
