Hi guys! I am moving from one wedding and onto the next. I am trying to get things listed online in between times. I have been listing things in Ed's shop https://www.theindustrialfarmer.esty.com and in my vintage shop https://www.hopeandjoyhome.etsy.com and my handmade shop https://www.hopeandjoystudios.etsy.com plus Ebay and our local booths. I have been sneaking in time to make things in the studio. The above is a metal welding rod "rack" that I bought at an estate sale of a welding shop a couple weekends ago. It called out for stenciled numbers so I added 2 in gold paint. So cool for a vase or a planter or to corral whatnot. Rusted perfection!
I got 2 of these handmade tin can water or oil cans. They have copper spouts..I just thought they were cool folk arty make dos..this one has already sold.
And blue eyed..
They need a bit more anique-ing and I may add some lace to their lower bodice area..looks a bit off to me now.
I spent last night working on a mixed media piece. Vintage wallpapers, antique ledger paper, sheet music and paper ephemera and an old photo. Her name was on the back, Zula Mae 1936 Chattanooga, TN. What a great old name! I couldn't leave her nameless so I added it to the front. I colored her dress and gave her some red dancing shoes, wings and added a moon. I loved the old dance school card..perfect for this piece.
