Thrifty Thursday~junkin and journeys!

Welcome to Thrifty Thursday. You know just about everything in my studio starts from a thrift find. Trays are always a great surface and I have painted hundreds over the years. These little treasures make great gifts, pretty on the vanity, holding a few wrapped candies, catching your keys by the door or set in an easel for display. I have many to design. Here is a small style with white snow roses that I just finished.

I think this little tray was in the Thursday photo up above. Here is a style from last winter using a vintage graphic and painted in white snow roses and berries.

Thank you for stopping by. My paint brushes are calling so off I go to the studio.
See you here again for Fun Friday and Fashions.
Smiles, Celestina Marie

I don't remember seeing the little girls on the Christmas tray before. How sweet they are. Love your snow roses. It is always so interesting to see the process behind the finished pieces.
