Blue Bird~Blackboard~Baby Shoe

Isnt this a beautiful design on this spoon
I've been busy, here is another little plate that I painted with chalkboard paint,
then added a nest with 3 little robin eggs and vine with sweet little berries and leaves,
I added a touch of metallic paint to the branches.
This little blue bird on the spoon is one that was featured in the Somerset Life mag.
Here is the other little shoe (the other shoe is on the copper plate) I wanted to paint and then age this sweet shoe. I used Glimmer Mist then metallic paints, a touch of pearl. Can you see the little soft polka a dots?? I painted a little rose on the toe of the shoe, I dyed the silk ribbons, I wanted the one around her neck to pull out the color in the rose.
I have just listed all these goodies on my EBAY

Hi Laurie. As usual your creations are beautiful.
I have a favor to ask: could you pray that I won't get anymore squirrels or snakes in my house? I had to kill a cotton mouth snake in my utility room today and my nerves are shot. Bad day for me.

Pam/Iris said...

Laurie, I want to get in touch with you. Will you email me please?
I couldn't figure out how to contact you other than here, LOL!

You sure have been busy! What an adorable little shoe you painted. I wish I had a pair for my little sweetie to wear-they are just too cute! The polka dots were a great touch. Oh and thanks again for the flower. I will head to Grams this week.
p.s. I appreciate you not making me search. Hehe!

In answer to your question about my blog design, it was done by Shannon at Eight Crazy. She does blog designs (usually at a cost of $65). Here is the link:

Have a great weekend!

Wouldn't your baby shoe be a great way to preserve a family heirloom? Some people have them bronzed but I think your way would be much more charming! I love the famous blue bird from Somerset! The chalkboard is beautiful as well as practical! I have had a lovely visit here today!
