Lovely Mirror #2

I painted another giant mirror.
All roses and hydrangea.
It's 16 inches long and 8 inches wide.
You could hang it up on the wall or let it sit on your bureau.
Peek a boo! Cheers...Have a lovely day!

Hurricane Irene Nantucket

Well, here we go again! Big predictions. Lots of people leaving the Island. Who would have known that we'd have a beautiful sunny, albeit, windy day!
I put my commemorative Hurricane Irene shells in the window with a framed print.
Here is a new box....

I didn't open the shop . I walked around town a bit to see what was going on. A big branch down on Centre Street.
John and I took down our signs. The bank was all boarded up.
Some shops on Main Street are not taking any chances.

The Lion's Paw has a lot of windows! They boarded up and were closed for the day.
Look at that blue sky! You wouldn't believe it if you didn't see it here . The ocean was a howlin'! The biggest waves I have ever seen here. As of 3 pm, the sun is shining, the wind is blowing, and there is a lot of kindling to pick up tomorrow. I met some people who flew in on the last plane out of NYC yesterday.... good decision! The rest of the week is supposed to be beautiful.....I hope everyone who was actually in the hurricane is safe and sound.Onward we go....Thanks for looking!

A New Shelf

Sorry to have been away for so long. As I said....I am swamped! But it's starting to ease as I get those orders out. I have a new metal and glass shelf. Now I have 2 more shelves to fill!
Her is a lovely 3 step stool that I did for Claire as a special order. The first step is a mermaid surrounded by hydrangeas.
The second step is a whale swimming with the rainbow fleet around Brandt Point lighthouse.
And the last step is a Nantucket Lightship basket filled with flowers. Whew! Thanks for looking....I just got a shipment of wooden boxes to stay tuned! Cheers....

Mirror Mirror On The Wall

I got these giant hand mirrors to paint. They are 16 inches long.
The mirror part is 8 inches by 9 inches....a serious mirror.
I call them my "Gulliver Mirrors". I was going to send them back, but I couldn't resist all that space to paint on!
More to follow! TTFN! :)

Whale Tray

I painted this jolly whale scene on a vintage metal tray.

It's got the Rainbow Fleet on it and the Brandt Point Lighthouse encircled with rosa rugosa. All from Nantucket !
