Going crazy with the frames.

When I visited the booth last week to re-foof I was bummed out at first, because very little had sold. When I looked closer, though, I was cheered to see that several of my prints had sold, and all of the vintage Golden Book framed pages had sold! This is very good news, because those are items I don’t have to worry about finding out and about at yard sales and thrift stores — I can make them with my own little hands. So of course I boogied back home to make some more.

I am just in love with the illustrations from this book. And every time I’ve framed one of them, it’s sold within a week.

And a new print…

I also spray painted a few things I’ve been meaning to get to. Remember these heavy garden urns from a Saturday shopping trip a while back?

They got whacked with a bit of spring.

And this little garden shelf had been stored in my parents’ storage space — my Dad has been so sweet to store a bunch of stuff for me over the years that I would find while visiting them in Little Rock but would be unable to find room for in the car for the return trip to Chicago. It still had its price sticker on it — I paid $2 for it!

It’s not in great shape but the lighter green that I spray-painted it is worlds better than the chipped forest green it came to me wearing. If nothing else, it looks cute displaying my pink urns in the booth!

Lara Jo THANKS! It sold. My favorite is the “You’ll always be my little lamb” but there it sits, in the booth, gathering dust.
