The big table

I've been loving some recent pictures in magazines of painted tables and chairs.  The chairs have been different pastel colours and when they are put together they look really cool.

So when I happened across a big table and six chair in Vinnies charity shop for $100, I could see the finished look.
Rosie was very disturbed when the delivery men arrived, she thought they were taking her table away.  Now it's called the big table the men brought.

Here's a before picture, I'll post a finished one when I've painted it.  Wish me luck.

Mini canvas prints

I'm exploring my prints on mini canvas.  It's a cute way to have a variety of art in the nursery.  Mixing up larger and smaller pieces can look very cool or even amongst their toys and treasures. They are approximately 13cm x 11cm.

They'll be on Etsy soon.

A few new prints

I've been doing a few more paintings.  I've been wanting to paint my nana's budgies and how I remember them with the lovely floral tray covers she use to make for the cage.  The batman and robin has been up in my head for a while. The hedgehogs are two of my best friends, who when I asked 'what would you be if you were an animal' replied...hedgehogs...cute but prickly!

Mini milk bottles

Just had to share my new find from one of my favourite shops 'Found Store'.  I've seen these in magazines but could never find them to buy...until now.

Six little milk bottles you can use for children's drinks or as I have for  Rosie (nearly 2 years) is still on the plastic bottles for now.  We picked some wild flowers from the wilderness behind our garden and a frangipani from our tree.  Looks quite eastery. I'll take more pictures of them in the sunshine soon.
