Hand Painted Puff Boxes

These are fun to paint!
Wee little puff boxes.
With wee little lids.
Could be used to house little in tooth fairy box!
Or jewels and such. Available at my Shop or etsy! Thanks for looking!
An update...Lots of wind here last night....whoooooo! We didn't loose power, though . We saw a new barn down in Sconset and we lost a bushy tree here. I'm venturing into town in a bit. Hope the big trees are okay!

Pretty New Sea Shells

My friend, Karen from Wellfleet sent me another whole box of sea clam shells! We don't get them here on our Nantucket shores.
They are beautiful shells to work with.
So I'll be putting these up for sale soon in the shop.
But now I am off to the studio!
Looks like a windy week end here!
80 mile an hour gusts on Sunday.....Snow in other New England towns....YIKES! Stay safe and warm and have fun! :):)

Floral Oyster Dishes

Aren't these swell? I just love them! I made the flowers out of papier mache but I think next time I will try to make them out of ceramic clay so that they can be used for salt and pepper dishes....with wee spoons!
I will use the short lull between now and Thanksgiving to make some!
Sweet....I have one for sale on my etsy shop! Thanks for looking!

Hand Painted Picture Frames

I put some new things in my Etsy shop!
4 x 6 frames in a bunch of different designs. This one has a space for personalizing with a special name or date.
I put a few mermaid boxes and frames on there too.

I hope you will take a look! :):)

Congratulations Eliza and Anthony! :):)
