While I was rummaging through the wood pile I found all kinds of great stuff. It's strange how I remember everything I have. I found three sets of wood pyramids that I had commissioned my woodman to make out of 1 inch pine. My woodman is long dead now and anytime I get out a piece he made me, I think of him. He was such a sweet man. His name was Tom and his wife Sybil. They were married some 50 something years. Once a year they would come to visit me from North Carolina. They used to live in Orlando by me. Anyway, I still have the rolling pin he made me and there are some things I wouldn't dream of parting with. Thank goodness I always had several made, at least two, one to keep and one to sell lol. Here are the pyramids all basecoated a dark green and their bases which get glue on tonight. Then I will proceed to paint on them...Who knows what.



Notice the fabric in the back. I go in spurts. I guess the jewelry spurt is over for now and the quilting is on hold. I must put those fabrics away until the mood strikes again. I want to paint. I want to paint folk art. Hubby was laughing at me today. He said, one never knows what to find upon entering the studio...But he loves it all. Oh, I already fed him. Here is some of the wood I picked out to paint hahahahah....lotta wood there.


Oh my! ah almost forgot to show you my little chickadee. I got these in the garden section at Joanns ..Aren't they great? Here you see the original the way I bought them and the sealed and basecoated one, ready to paint a design on. I am thinking Talavera...Mexican.


And while I was taking pictures, I took one of Priscilla the jewelry tree. This is a 2x4 post with one of my painted heads and large pegs. Somewhere I have more pegs. I must find them. And blogger has quit on me again..Oh well tomorrow...

Hi Dee,the chicks (I got 3 of them) are about 15 inches tall and 32 inches around the fattest part without the tail, with the tail add anoter 5 inches. They will be for sale when I get done. I always keep one. I'll post them here first and then ebay. I suppose Joanns has different things in different states. This is orlando florida, so we have lot of garden stuff here. They also had some terra gotta ducks. I think I'll go buy some to paint.
