…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.

…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.

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.
