New Creations for Iowa

I'm finishing up some custom orders and this is the latest. I made the frame in my blog header for my friend, Kara. Her aunt's dog's name is Cagney and won't the frame be cute with a pic of her pup. She wanted me to make the frame below for her grandparents, Clyde and Lois. She has a pic of them from the 40's and wants to put it in the frame -- yes, that's the 1940's!! Gives a whole new meaning to "together forever"!

Her grandmother loves her rose garden and I think the multi-colors and typewriter keys set off the blooms just right.

"Now I will tell you buster, that I ain't a fan of Custer." This frame and the switchplates are going to the Junk Asylum. My buddy, Sharon from Sweet Repose is starting up a retail space north of Davenport, Iowa and I am so excited that she's carrying my art work!!!

I'm going to put together some garden flowers (my creations made of old tin) to send up there soon. Who couldn't use some color with all this cold weather! Garden flowers will not wilt!

And I'll be busy making switch plates, too. I hope these will be popular since they are so much fun!

I also started what I call a "table plaque". It's a mosaic I'm doing on a wooden plaque that's not made to hang, but to sit on a table, get it?! My first one will be grouted tonight with pics to follow. I will make a few more things before packing it all up and sending it to the Great White North! (Iowa, that is). Stay warm!
