The Lone Star State....






i may live in oklahoma but texas is where my heart is.... so i was super pumped when i got this order!!! in fact...if you've ever been to my house you might have noticed a "few" texas stars here and there. by a few i mean like 30..uhh...that's downstairs (yes...i just went and counted..lol) yikes...i didn't even go upstairs...oh wait...i almost forgot the one by my front door!! :) well anyway...i got a call the other day from a gal in texas. she just happened to be on of my amazing SISTER-in-laws. (i have 4 so i have to be careful.....lol jk..jk..i love them all dearly!!!) she had been looking for a texas flag "picture" to hang above her couch at her farm house. so she decided to put me to the test to make just what she was looking for so i tried....( i hope she likes it?!?!) :/ i just happened to have a star...some old wood...a piece of rusty tin....courtesy of my oldest son, he found it one day brought it home and said "mom i thought you could use this (that seems to be a reoccurring line..lol) and some paint of course....and wah lah...here ya have it a tin texas flag framed with old barn wood! now the only problem is that i am attached to it so she may never get it!!

Aged to perfection....



aaahhh....another garage sale treasure that i just couldn't resist!!!

decisions, decisions...i decided to poll the audience on this one......my kids said "NO MORE TURQUOISE"...lol so my hubby and i agreed that the antiqued off white look would suite this piece best. :) so this is what i spent my friday doing...(oops...guess the laundry will get done tomorrow) it came with a mirror but i chose not to keep it intact....maybe the mirror will show up another day :) i envision this piece in an entry...maybe your entry?!?!? cause sadly i have to part with it...my house is full! so if this little number jumps out and grabs you....let me know and we will work out a deal ;)

would you like a spot of tea?



lol..so did you read/say that with a british accent??? if so...my mil would be so proud ;)
this started out as a aspen tree and ended up as a tea cup rack on my kitchen counter. my inspiration....a sweet guy named gary. he creates some awesome pieces out of aspen and i was privileged to get to know him about 3 years ago in colorado. he gave me all the aspen wood i could haul back! this was my first assignment....next on my aspen wood agenda is a table!
