*LOOK* What I've Been Up To!!!

As an artist, I get so tingly all over when I do something and I really think it works!!! That's how I feel about some of my newest creations. I spend many evenings with my sweetie watching TV and making my clay roses. It's gotta be one of the MOST theraputic things I do. And then to be able to share them with others, well that's like icing on a cake, YUM!!

Here you can see I have 2 plates stacked. I have taken Vintage castoff plates and married them with a pretty glass pedestal. These now can perform a miriad of jobs. When you stack them, these could be used for serving speical treats for guest. Or, you may put a pretty candle on them in your Powder room. These might even hold pretty soaps, cupcakes and the list goes on and on. Your imagination is your desire! So, the aboave plate is about 6.5 inches. I have place one of my perfume bottles on top for you see how it looks. These were both embellished with my clay roses and some vintage floral goodies.
This pale pink plate really had seen better days. It had a big chip and could have just been thrown away..but wait!!! I fixed it's booboo by yet again placing a pretty bow and my roses and now its..GOOD TO GO!!! On both of these pedestals I then embellished them further with MORE roses! What do you think? These are being listed in my etsy!

Lastly, I have done another PINK Cross. What a delicate pretty way to share your faith. I think these crosses are some of my favorite accomplishments!

Thanks for stopping by today! Hope you enjoyed my little sharing or show n tell!




I love how your beautiful roses add so much to the plates!! You are very creative!!
Thanks also for more postcards to look at. The Thanksgiving ones are neat.
