These are Funky Buckets and they're just a joy to create!
The one on the left is called Suburban Artifacts for its mix of old and new everyday items. It's in shades of aqua, lime, pale yellow and copper. There is a circle cut from a vintage document behind the retro "bling" on the medallion that doesn't show up in this picture. Sold.
Winged Heart is actually done in shades of salmon, coral and rose so it's a little darker and less pink than it appears in the photo. It has accents of mossy green and incorporates some vintage texts, an antique key and embossed velvet leaves. Pam, thanks for the cool old wire I used for the handle! Sold.
I call these Bella Bottles. Some of them are true antiques, others are just interesting shapes that I've recycled/repurposed into something that looks vintage. Small antique ink bottle with German scrap birds, vintage ledger fragment and pink trims For sale in my Etsy store.
Taller textured bottle with fragment of vintage French envelope, postage, silk ribbons and millinery trims Sold.
Here are a few of the things I'll be offering for sale at Art in the Garden next week. Sorry some of the pictures have a bit of glare or an amber tinge. I'm experimenting with photographing my work with the digital camera because it's so much easier to upload but I'd rather be using my good old Canon still camera!
Lidded apothecary jar--sold.
Vintage blue Ball jar--for sale in my Etsy store.

I recently got a sewing machine so I've been having a great time finding ways to incorporate stitching into many of my projects. These were my first ATCs with (machine) sewing. Boy, do I need to work on my scanning! But you get the picture, right? (Ohhh, that was lame. )
These cards are no longer available for trade. If you have an opportunity to see the House of Cards II gallery exhibit you might see a couple, though.
