chips of paint everywhere........

As you may or may not know- my husband and I have just started a HUGE renovation project. A lovely old victorian farmhouse.
I am going to start sharing the process here.

Both to let family and friends who are far away see what we are up to and so that we have something to look back on when we are done.
Structurally it's in pretty good shape.........but needs everything else.
So, I will be including these updates here o
n my blog that has previously been mostly my art.
I hope you enjoy seeing the progress. Slow as it may be.
love, Patti

#3 is out!!!!!

This is number three in a series of limited edition creations I have just started to offer in my Etsy shop.
Part of a limited edition of 50, each signed and numbered.
Once all 50 are gone that's it. They are gone.
So far I'm planning on coming out with a new design every month.
Designed by me, each paper element is cut out by hand and put together and made from my original artwork.
Inspired by the German paper holiday ornaments and Easter eggs my Mom used to hang on our tree and put in our baskets.
This one is a big eyed rabbit with a little chick on it's head. Can be a box or basket. He is sitting amongst some pretty pink skull flowers. Great for Easter or spring. Fill it with grass and candy or a special gift.

Measurements- 5.5"x 4"x 4"

New Limited Edition P-Monkey Ornaments

This is the first ornament in a series of limited edition creations I am just starting to offer in my Etsy shop.
Part of a limited edition of 50, each signed and numbered.
Once all 50 are gone that's it. They are gone.
So far I'm planning on coming out with a new design every month.
Inspired by the Easter eggs my Mom used to put in my Easter baskets, with the peepholes that looked into glittery little pastel worlds.
This introductory ornament is a pretty pastel bird house....... but wait....something isn't right..... there is a silly orange cat inside! How did he fit in there? The birds don't look too worried.
These are packaged in little gift boxes with a gift card attached- blank and ready for you to sign.
Thanks so much for looking :)
