Hand Painted Teapot and More

Good morning and how about a cup of tea? I realized that I don't have a teapot at home, so I swiped one from the shop. It goes well with my new black kitchen in our new place.

Here is another heart rock. I will be posting some more things in my Etsy shop sometime today.

This is a sweet little box....It could be a Tooth Fairy box, or just a place to stash earrings and rings so they don't get misplaced.

It is made of turned wood and is about 2 inches tall by 2 inches wide.

Here is another. I used some of my wallpaper/wrapping paper designs in the background. I may have these available in my shop as fabric this Summer!


This is a ceramic box that I painted with acrylic paints and finished with a water based varnish.

It is 2 inches tall and 4 inches round. A perfect little size!
Thanks for looking and Happy Birthday Jeffrey!

Louise Fili

I love the design work of Louise Fili.
Especially the logo for The Mermaid favorite place to go for oysters in NYC....UMMMMM

On her site you can view product design,logos, restaurant logo and design, and some videos. Visit her blog as well!

Here is her beautiful book.I have to pick one up!

This logo for a cosmetic dentist is pretty swanky...:)=

                     Sfoglia....a restaurant that is no longer on Nantucket, but loving the Mermaids!
                         Such inspiration.....I've got to make some new packaging for the shop....TTFN:):)

Mermaid Floral Tray

I just finished painting a nice,big oval tray.

I got a bunch of them from my friend from art school, Jean.

So here is the first one,with a Mermaid, of course! I got some inspiration from my collection of lace designs here in my studio as well as on my pinterest board. You see, I pin for a reason!

Thanks for looking and here is a lovely link. Enjoy your weekend!
