Friday's Show and Tell at Comin' Home
Flor Larios' Art by Flor
I saw Flor's beautiful boxes and pendants and fell in love with them immediately! I'm no an expert in the field of art, but I adore the 'iconic' folk art, old world feel of her painting. She has a Etsy shop where she sells all her lovely work too. These colors are just fantastic!
Until Wednesday Calls by Melissa
Melissa has become one of my favorite bloggers to follow because she makes the most gorgeous girly craft ideas I have ever seen! (They are to die for!!) And she shows you how to do them too.This is a refashion for her daughter Wednesday and I think the clothes and her daughter are just darling!
This is so so wonderful and sweet! Shona has just written a book called The Artistic Mother (on my sidebar). I just recently had the privilege of seeing this and think it is exquisite. She does uniquely creative altered art. I love it because it is so 'fairy-like'. I'm always amazed when I see her work.(Of course, that is my son and daughter-in-law their at the bottom so I may be a 'wee' bit prejudice--Ha!)
Mary is an avid dog lover and a very talented and skilled seamstress! Isn't this jacket perfect? I would never have known that she made it herself! Wow! She embroiders too--I'd sure like to see some of that. She has an embroidery business.
Well Angela's five children really went to town and aren't these the cutest! You should check out her blog and watch the children 'helping' her. She is the unsung artist behind all of these food concoctions that her children make. Yummy...edible art!
Amy takes fabulous photographs and this one is stunning! She is starting a new blog and I'm looking forward to visiting it too. Isn't this a precious photo?
Deb re-did this tray with decoupage and made a beautiful tea tray!I love this because the music is all hymns and I play a lot of hymns on the guitar. I love her blog and head over there whenever I need a breath of fresh air, some worshipful music and sound biblical wisdom... Thanks Deb!
Trudy is so creative and a great seamstress too! Her family made these and she even made one for me! Happy Valentine's Day! But she will be the first one to tell you that she gets a lot of her inspiration from artist, Shona Cole. She is starting an online 'artistic mothers' art group who will work on the art projects in Shona's book together. Be sure to check it out if you want to learn some altered art!
I just love this blog! Stephanie is such a doll to post lots of great ideas for re-using what you have and turning it into something useful. She has a great post on making seed pots with newspaper, but this picture of her daughter wearing a re-fashioned denim headband was way cuter, so I 'borrowed' it from her blog (with her permission, of course.) We have mutual permission to 'borrow' as needed. :o)
I think these are so ethereal and entrancing! They make me think of wooden dolls, but their painted faces are so lovely. When I see them, it makes me want to touch and hold one. I love wood things and these are beautiful (and for sale at her Etsy shop too!)
Ruth Velarde is another talented seamstress who designed this checkbook register. Isn't this a great idea? On my sidebar you can see the inside and all the other color options. She is amazing! You can buy this at her ETSY shop.
Christy, Diana, Gloria, Kristen, Maria, Shannon, and all of the rest of you following friends...I was so tempted to 'borrow' some stuff from your blogs too, but I didn't have permission. I sure hope I get to show some of your things next week!
Thanks so much to all of you who sent a contribution! I hope you will consider joining in next Friday's Show & Tell too! It can be anything...fabric, paper, wood, clay, photo, poem, song or Ebook! I think we'd all love to see your things. Please feel free to write a little explanation about your entry too. We'd love to hear the story behind your creations! You really all did a great job! Until next week....
