I found them in an old box yesterday!
I've mentioned in a few posts now about the shop I once had and I found some, I know, terrible pics of the old girl! Here she is in all her 800 sq feet, haunted glory. (Yes, I believe she was haunted...)
the little winding stairs to the left was a second floor that was quite eery at times
garden party on the ceiling...I loved that wire moss stuff!
One of my first custom jobs was to create a series of drawings for a family's half bath which had very high ceilings. I went out and hung them and almost broke my kneck....but they turned out sweet.
They are pencil drawings...top one is of a compact and blush brush, then gerber daisies, then a large flower (which I can't remember the name of...let me know if you know what it is!), and the bottom two feature a tube of lipstick and and old powder box. I found some old wood frames then painted and distressed them.
And, one of my first before and after shots of a darling dresser. I remember a nice lady came in, in the pouring rain and bought it for her little girl's room.
Man, was it in bad shape...
Rhode Island Soap Works overflowing...sold a lot of their yummy bath line!
Someone's husband came in a few weeks before mother's day with a photo of their three girls and asked that I create a drawing for his wife. So sweet!
One of my favorite watercolors I did when in Italy. I kick myself to this day... I ended up selling it to a lady who loved it and asked repeatedly if I would sell it. I caved...sigh.
Painting fresh stripes...this was a job!
Christmas in the shop!
My cute front little window.....
Custom drawing made for someone's Maid of Honor and sister...."Our hearts will stay side by side..."
She provided a photo from their childhood
Watercolor and pencil...horribly fuzzy photo! But, this was a piece sold in the store. In a wood frame that I painted and distressed...
Last but not least...I finally bought Leila her first "tea set" last week and she loves it! After putting her to bed the other night I started picking up her toys and found this:
I guess she wanted to make sure her guests were not without stirrers, obviously!
