Little Birds Nest

This is one little 4X4 wrapped canvas.I'm showing the glimmer in the left one, the right one is showing the side where I wrapped the branch around. I painted a sweet little nest with robins egg blue eggs. It has a crackle finish that I glazed over with a Champagne Gold. This is now on Ebay

I added little blossoms, in honor of Spring.


WHAT IS THIS???
I was at a little spring bazaar and it was closing time. It was labeled "toilet paper holder"
I'm thinking..rolls of ribbon...I'm running up to the checkout counter, I stopped a helper lady and said "How does this open" she pulls on one end and says..."like this" so I bought it. I get it home and guess what...it was broken, thats why it moved on one end...It doesn't open, so I can't use it...not only do I ask...what is it...I ask...what can I do with it now...I'm not going to pass it along as a useless piece of plastic... I may use it on my blog as a useless "give-away" lol

Laurie - Your little canvases are so cute! I think that plastic holder might be to hold a skein of yarn so it 'rolls' as you pull yard from it. At least that's what is looks like. I haven't seen one for quite some time. ~Adrienne~

Your newest little sweet canvases are marvelous! You should spray paint that plastic holder thingy your favorite color, paint the ends a different color, put some paint embellishments on the ends, then hang it on your wall for ribbions etc. You might just fall in love with it!
Hugs, Donna Lynn

Your canvas paintings are lovely, Laurie. I've already bought broken/useless stuff at a flea market. I never seem to scrutinize things as much as I should....oh, well!
