I used a lighter colored Glimmer Mist or the daisy. The candles are Cranberry Tea Candles that are in their own little cup. I painted the base a pale pink and painted a rose and buds, on both sides. This will be on my Ebay
One quick trip to a Goodwill, found 2 of these vintage cuties! I'm sure I can get a birdie to fit in it somehow!! LOl... I look forward to hearing from everyone...give me a few days to get the buttons in the mail to you.

While my back was turned, this one took the bag of spaghetti off the counter, dragged it into the other room and opened it...then started eating them. I was laughing sooo hard, I had to run in and get the camera...what will they eat next???
Have I ever mentioned the names of our cats? Well, one of Staceys cats is "Bug" He started out "otter" He loved to lay upside down and has these huge,long white whiskers and eye brows, then he started bugging us, so it was otter bug, then it was shortened to Bug, they love that name at the vet. LOL ! The other is "Pood"... short for poodle, he thinks hes a puppy dog, loves to chew on shoes and sandles.LOL.Then our two kitties...I am REALLY embarrassed to say..."Dirty" (isnts that awful!) He looks like his paws have been in the mud.. and "Whitie" well, he just has pretty white, clean looking paws. lol. The picture above is Dirty...doesnt look so bad with the flash of the camera lol.
Ok, PLEASE tell me some of you have weird names for your pets!!!!

Have you seen those bags of jewlery at the thrift shops with a bunch of ugly looking jewelery...I have never purchased any, UNTIL yesterday...see that yellow flowery looking piece, It GRABBED me!! I had to have it!
Thats really about all that was in the bag...see the white rounds, I they were earrings, I tore off the backs, got out my enamel paints and wa-laa. The daisy is the other one like the one I put on yesterdays birdie pincushion, which I will be painting also..
I remembered to take a picture of these gold thingys...
Here are the items I got yesterday...What do you think...pretty good huh!
Here is my latest birdie. It's ceramic. I painted it with white first then added pink pearl paints, I added a pin to the back of that white earring that I painted. Oh what fun I have had the last couple of days! Dont forget to check out my ebay.

We all thought the Vegemite tasted like condensed thick soy sauce.
What do you think we have that the Aussies dont?
Here is my latest creation. I LOVE it. I painted the cone then put a 2 step crackle med. on it, when dry I rubbed it with some metallic black, and couple of golds. Instead of trim around the top I painted it with the same black and added gold dots.
I found this gorgous black beaded tassel. I made a copy of a vintage calling card. I added 3 beautiful vintage glass buttons. Not very valentinie (is that a word?) How about I call it "Paris Chic" Please let me know what you think...now I've got to go get it put on Ebay...
It is sooooo nice having my computer back!!
