AROUND THE HOUSE...................................
Our house is still on the market and unfortunately not much activity in our area...so, I have been busy doing little projects here.
This is a wonderful mirrored room dividing screen. In this pic the mirror is turned towards the wall.
As you can tell, the back was just plain painted hardwood. I wanted to be able to use both sides in a different way so I decided to gussy up the back side.
These are all bits and bobs of postcards and papers I have collected over the years. Many of the cards came from when we have traveled abroad. The ones above with the sailboats are from Portofino when we traveled Italy many years ago.
The Mists of Avalon is one of my favorite books and I loved the writing script so I included a page from there as well.
Several of these cards are from our recent trip down the Rhine and the Danube. The little boy and girl holding hands above is a valentines card from my wonderful husband . I wanted to make the back of this screen a collage of my life. As you can see, I'm not finished yet. Hopefully we will have a few more adventures and I will be able to add even more wonderful little treasurers to my screen.
Another little project....using an old drawer pull as a picture hanger.
This is a Moroccan drawer pull. I was only able to find one of these at the flea and didn't know how I would use it.
The art above is painted on a wooden box. It is by Maria Pace -Wynters, one of my favorite artists. It has never had a frame and looked a little plain to me so I decided to add a hanger.
Here is the finished piece. I know it looks a little like a purse (that just occurred to me) LOL LOL but I thought it needed a little something. Don't know if I am going to hang it or just let it sit on a table.
Sending hugs from my house to yours.
