Mt. Hood/ painted things





First I thought I would share a photo of Mt. Hood. Well, part of it, We took a trip to Hood River to the apple orchards, I laughed, when I got home I had only pears...I REALLY like pears. It was such a beautiful day we did this whole loop around the Mt.



Did I mention that I went through a phase of woodcarving. Here is a sweet little bunny that I carved and painted. I use to teach a bunch of woodcarvers how to paint...boy could they carve, but they didnt know what a paint brush was. LOL.


I picked up this metal container for a buck. I made the snowballs by covering balls with spackle and glitter. I like aqua and silver together.


This is a large wooden snowflake. I sprinkled glitter on it with the last coat of varnish. I will be putting this one on Ebay tomorrow.
