More new items......

I found this great wicker picnic basket at a yard sale last fall, thought I would finally get it painted for my spring show. I painted the basket a soft blue and then dry brushed it with white. On the lid I painted two groupings of beautiful spring flowers. This would be a great basket to sit by a chair and store your treasures in or use it for a great family picnic!

Chickens, chickens, chickens!!! I painted 50 of my chicken magnets yesterday!

I found this great little childs chair at the DI's the other day. I painted a fun whimiscal design on it. It has been coated 3 three coats of polyacrylic for durability.
I got my paper work all sent off for my Lamoille, Nv. (outside of Elko) show this weekend. This is a great one day show that I had real good success at last year. The show date is June 27th.
The Kottage Kupboard spring show at Weber County Fairgrounds is May 5-8th.
If you have a chance please join me at both shows for some great hand painted treasures!


  1. Hey that little chair has alot going on there!
    Cant believe you painted 50 of those chickens, you know what to do to be prepared. good work janae

  2. I really get tired of painting so many of one thing like the chickens, but I always sell out of my magnets especially at Swiss Days. I plan on taking at least 1000 magnets to Swiss Days this year, around 100 of each Halloween ones, les of my others. I will be painting pumpkin's, witches, bats, skelton's, frankie's, crow's, spiders, snowmen, frog's, chicken's ladybugs' pig's, cow's, bear's, flowers and what ever other idea I come up with! These are something really easy to paint at my cabin in the summer.
