Studio Views

Welcome back to another Paint Palette Wednesday. This season has my studio humming with activity. It has been raining a lot the last 2 weeks, and of course you know, I love to work in the studio when it rains. The rain falling and streaming down against the windows makes for such a cozy feel inside the room. So for me that is an inspiration.

Lots of Christmas decor is on the way to my etsy shoppe and bonanzle, but I took a little detour with this sweet treasure.

This is an old vintage drawer that I found recently on a treasure hunt. In very good and sturdy condition I hand painted it antique ivory, with light pink stripes, shading, roses and lined with a pink rose fabric to complete. The glass knob was already on the drawer when I found it. I love these drawers and their usefulness for essentials, supplies or decorative accents.

Another fun box I painted was from a design I studied in one of my art books, Village Views by Gladys Neilsen. This will hold 3 coordinating ornaments with instruments to go along with the box. Starting with a paper mache box, I added music papers, sealed and then painted the angel. Added glitter, side stripes and lace trim to complete.

Cute little JOY snowmen set. This set has already sold, but a few more are on the way. These little cuties each hold a letter to spell JOY.

And, one of the last shabby pink pumpkins already spoken for. This one has a little charm angel sitting on a leaf.

Thank you for stopping by the studio today. Some of these and many other treasures for purchase can be viewed HEREand HERE
Hope you are having a great week and I look forward to seeing you tomorrow for Thrifty Thursday. Till then I'll be back in the studio, swinging a paint brush!
Smiles, Celestina Marie

Hi Celeste! Love the box. Using music paper is a favorite thing of mine and it goes really well with your painting. I love working with the rain, or snow swirling around outside! You have been busy and as always everything is beautiful.

Just beautiful, honey! I hope you have a great time listening to the rain and painting. We had rain and wind last night and it knocked over our BBQ grill! Scared us silly, chick!

That white pumpkin is adorable! But of course!!

Celestina, I love your creations. I want to buy everything! My only problem is that I only have one room (my grand-girls) bedroom that I have pink. I also did not know about bonanzle. Where have I been? Anyway, I am checking it out. I love the postcard vintage ornaments and may order those. said...
