Old vintage watering cans, acrylic on wallpaper...yes, the background in wainscot wallpaper!!!  It's just like painting on canvas...infact, good quality wallpaper is a canvas paper.
I have spent exausting hours on ebay trying to win bids on vintage jewelry.....broken lots that are going for hundreds of dollars!!!  I am shocked.  I have this marvelous idea in my head for a couple of designs and I want to use vintage jewelry parts in them and I am being stonewalled by the costs!  Will have to wait for the weather to warm up a bit and hit the flea markets and antique shops.
Here is another one of my paintings, acrylics on canvas.  The collander is one of the many that I own...and just went so well with this quilt.

this design is called "time in a bottle".  It has watch faces attached around the bottle,  is filled with watch parts and beads with numbers on them.  Dangling from the lid, also a watch face, is an antique watch with a vintage photo and a bit of bling.  glass beads also dangle from the lid.
