Hooo goes there?

I know that owls are all trendy again, but whenever I see owl decor I think back to the hundred or so decorative owls that used to sit on my grandmother’s mantle.  Today’s designs are cuter but it seems that they have been popular for a long time.  Earlier this summer my kids begged me to take them to Glazed Bisque-It, a local ceramic studio (which was also trendy in the 70s along with the owls).  I usually don’t paint a piece myself, but I have really been wanting a cookie jar.  What do you know, but they had this awesome owl cookie jar.  So I HAD to paint it.  I LOVE LOVE LOVE him.

Mystery with a Little Bit of Glitz

This is a mystery project that I did a few years ago.  The design is by Gay Ann Rogers, but the idea is that you pick your fibers and then mix and match options for each section of the piece. In theory, no two are alike.  I love how it turned out, and it was a fun piece to do.  I kept this piece for myself and it hangs in our bedroom.
