Bonjour Mes Amis!
Well, another week has flown by, and we are already halfway thru the month of November!
There just doesn't seem to be enough time in the day to complete all of the projects and ideas that are swirling thru my head (I am sure you can relate!). And with the holiday season fast approaching, I know that it's time for me to try and get super organized (notice I said "try"!).
So today I thought I'd share with you some of my latest creations that I've added to my Etsy shop.
I'm always hunting for frames to paint, and when I find a matching pair, I quickly snatch them up! For these little cuties, I've added copies of gorgeous vintage floral wallpaper. I am really loving the look!
Why didn't I think of that sooner? I can't wait to put some more together!
Love the sweet flowers and colors, too!
Next up is a set of glass vases, that I hand painted in pretty shades of coral. I've been having fun playing with coral, it's a popular color right now. And it's also really popular to use painted vases at weddings, bridal showers, baby showers, and more!
I gave these a generous dose of distressing, and embellished them with some of my glittered hydrangea blossoms, all tied on with sweet creamy cotton lace.
Love how all of the details just pop, with the addition of the paint and distressing!
I never realized just how much I love coral! For the frame below (that comes with glass and backing), I mixed up my own pretty hue, and was pleased with the end result! Love the pretty wooden appliques at each corner.
You've probably seen my frame collections in the past. They are one of my favorite things to do. I hunt weekly for interesting frames that I can paint. While the recipient can of course add their own photos or artwork to the frames, for their photo shoots I like to add decorative papers to jazz things up at bit!
For this set I painted the frames, all vintage, gray, cream, and pale pink (love that combo!).
The frames all have great curves Isn't this gray one cute?
And you know how much I love chalkboards!
I repurposed this vintage Homco frame into a new and pretty chalkboard.
I hand painted it a very pale pink. Notice the cute little flowers that go all along the border?
And still feeling in a coral mood, I painted this sweet cottage style shelf the same pinky coral that I did the larger picture frame that I shared with you.
Shelves are always very popular in my shop, and this one just sold.
The other goodies can be seen here if you want to take a peek!
Have a great weekend!
