Newest Project January 21 2015, 0 Comments

I had picked up this little wooden jug/recipe book holder awhile ago but had no idea what I was going to do with it. While on my daily visit to the Graphics Fairy website I came across the perfect image. The image was of an ironstone pitcher which looked exactly like my thrift store find. I absolutely loved the vintage antique crockery shop advertisement and new it would be perfect!  I painted the pitcher in an apple green and the bottom black chalkboard paint. I then printed the image, traced it, then painted it on and voila here is the finished product.

Painted Wine Bottles December 26 2014, 3 Comments

I love painting and decorating wine bottles although this set in particular I feel may have a story behind the images. I found these images on the Graphics Fairy website and felt I needed to use them together some how. I painted the bottles with a clay colored home made style chalk paint and them glazed the entire bottle and image with a walnut glaze then sealed them with an acrylic spray. I used embellishments and twine to decorate them. It looks as though these young boys have given the girls flowers and a note. A vintage Victorian young love story!
