COW BELLS, HORSE SHOES AND A WONDERFUL VISIT!

I had so much fun creating these cow bells, well I should say transform them. They were pure galvanized silver color....it took a couple of days getting them to this point. I deep them in muriatic acid and voila'. Added  lace, ribbon and rhinestones. 
I painted few horse shoes and the rust is starting to come through.....perfect patina.


Yesterday I was blessed by the company of two amazing ladies. What a wonderful inspiration they are, funny, creative.....Sunday Hendrickson (photographer, stylist of many publications and Fifi O'Neill (editor of Romantic Country, Prairie Style) stopped by for a visit. We talked around the dining room table had some fresh bread and prosciutto  and then Sunday took few photos of things around the studio/dining room.  We then took a field trip to my favorite Prop Rental Emporium "Madam Palooza" where we met owner Sylvia Asmussen, very talented stylist. We had a wonderful lunch at Wilson Creek Wineries and then came back to Madam Palooza. Beautiful day spent with friends......

Wishing you a great Labor Day weekend!

FARM FRESH TRAY

Monday is typically the day that I start all kinds of projects. Some that I should not even start since the show is only a week away! But how can you stop creativity?

I am glad this project took only a couple of hours.
 I really like how this tray turned out.

Now I am working on a mini chandelier made out of a jello mold......
Sharing soon!
