table leg butterfly with vintage print
It's spring time and I've been adding a few table leg butterflies and dragonflies 
to my Etsy shop, they make great Mother's Day gifts! ;)


vintage lady in red dress print
When I was taking picture frames apart to use for my Picture Molding Christmas Trees
this print was in one of them and I just couldn't throw it away.

decoupaged table leg butterfly wings
I decided to decoupage parts of the image to my butterfly wings.
I left the edges rough and added painted gold swirls.
The print had some creases and imperfections but I think
that only adds more character to this piece.

recycled butterfly general finishes milk paint
Gosh I love that paint. It goes on so smooth and distresses beautifully.

I cut and bent an embossed serving fork for the antenna
and added glass bead eyes...

Along with more huge glass beads and metal pieces at the tail.

I love how she turned out!
Since it's decoupaged, it's indoor use only on this butterfly.

I created a few more of the pink and fleur de lis designs.
This design is definitely one of my most popular.

I used glass bead eyes and beaded antenna, aka... shower curtain hooks.

Mermaid Wall Art New Design with Sea Shells, Crushed Glass and Crushed Shells

vertical mermaid with shells and starfish wall art
I wanted to share my latest mermaid design with you.
Actually I created it towards the end of last year and I'm 
just now getting around to blogging about her!

large mermaid wall art with crushed shells and glass
This is the original style of mermaid I created years ago. 
I've since made this style in 2 other sizes and all sorts of combinations
but I wanted to offer another version as well and it was a lot of fun
coming up with the design.

I've been making her in the same style with lots of texture and 
shells in her hair...

mosaic of seashells and sea glass
I use lots of mixed shells, with or without crushed glass chips...

I ended up making a small version of this mermaid as well.

Not the greatest pic, but you can see the difference in size.

She's available in the glass and shell combo, all shells or all glass too.

The shells are so beautiful!

I recently hit the seashell mother lode on Craigslist so I'm set with 
sea shells for a while.
They were all cleaned and organized, I was pretty excited!

If you are ever in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida, I usually have 
mermaids displayed in a shop called Pieces of Paradise so 
stop by and see them in person.

Hand Painted Wood Bunny Rabbit Sculptures in Reversible Designs of Black and White Checks, Textures, Harlequin and More

hand painted rabbit sculptures
I just finished these fun hand painted rabbits painted with different 
whimsical designs on each side...reversible bunnies!

unfinished wooden bunnies
I actually started them a couple of months ago but then I had to start
packing to move to another home and they got put aside.

I drew out my own pattern, cut them out of plywood and 
mounted on strips of wood so they would be free standing.

Easter black and white checked bunny rabbits decor
I made three pairs of them. This pair has black and cream checks
on one side...

textured damask designs bunny easter decor
They have a textured design made with stencil and spackle on the other side.
If you aren't sure how to do that, check out 
this textured dragonfly wing post to see the process.

If you follow me on Facebook you already know that
on Thursday, I got married! :) 

getting married under a magnolia tree
We actually knew each other waaaay back in high school in a small town in Alabama,
 and never saw each other again until 2 1/2 years ago when we connected on Facebook!
We both knew "something" was there from that moment and have been inseparable
since then. We married at our local courthouse under a huge magnolia tree.
Most perfect, happiest day ever!
