…favorite things friday – art show

As you all know my dad is an artist in his own right, a metalsmith & jeweler, as was his dad before him. He is a part of Great Falls Studios, which is a local arts consortium of about 100 artists in the area.

This month they are holding a show at the US Geological Survey Building. These are REAL artists. Check out my dad’s necklace in the lower left corner.



Here are some of his other designs. Every piece is handcrafted and custom made.

…the poppy collection

I have been working with my rubber appliques from Efex and I heart them! They really add some interest and charm. Introducing The Poppy Collection.

Here’s a before and after of the dresser. It is a really beautiful piece sold to me by my friend Katie! Thanks, Lovie.



Here is the after:





I love the look of this sweet, little wreath and the white paint. It turns the piece from something a bit more masculine to a dresser that is more delicate. And it’s on casters, which makes it even sweeter.

I decided to add a matching applique to the twin bed I am selling as well.


Once this little set starting coming together I added a  little nightstand in the same Old White.



Here is the little set…


I also have a matching armoire that I’m finishing up with the same appliques.
