NEW BEATRIX POTTER ORNAMENTS

I've created two more Beatrix Potter ornaments.  This time they are larger (2 1/2 " x 3")  The illustrations I used for these ornaments, are two of my favourites.  I hope you enjoy them.  I am always looking for feedback, and I'd love to hear from you.  Shipping will be $10.00 for small air package and I could probably ship both for $12.00.


 1.  THE SLEEPING BUNNIES is one of my favourite illustrations.  This ornament is made from duplicate copies of Beatrix Potter's illustration,  which have been altered to allow me to layer the images into a 3 dimensional scene, similar to Paper Tole.  Each primary feature has been layered with an acrylic glaze, to make it stand out.  It ha a wooden back, top and bottom, and the remaining sides are encased in class and finished with solder, that has been aged. The dimensions of the ornament are 2 1/2" x 3" x 1/2"   It is finished with an organza ribbon and comes with it's own presentation box, with a matching picture of the ornament, on the box.
PRICE:  $55.00




2.  BENJAMIN BUNNY is on of my favourite Beatrix Potter character.  This ornament is made from duplicate copies of Beatrix Potter's Benjamin Bunny,  which have been altered to allow me to layer the images into a 3 dimensional scene, similar to Paper Tole.  Each primary feature has been layered with an acrylic glaze, to make it stand out.  It has a wooden back, top and bottom and the remaining sides are encased in class and finished with solder, that has been aged. The dimensions of the ornament are 2 1/2" x 3" x 1/2". It is finished with an organza ribbon and comes with it's own presentation box, with a matching picture of the ornament, on the box.
PRICE:  $55.00

DON'T BLINK!

Eight years ago, we relocated to be close to our daughter and grandson.  At the time, Corson was a toddler of 2 1/2 years old.  We knew we had a short window span, before he was spending all his time with friends, but it seems to have happened in a blink of an eye.  Corson is creeping up on me in height, with only a few inches to go :(  He has lost his sweet chubby cheeks and they have been replaced with long arms and legs and a quick witt (compliments of his Papa).  I'm glad we have had this time with him, but I will always miss the little fellow, who had to put his hand on the wall, to climb up the step in our front hall and I still have his signature on our living room wall in his best kindergarten printing, that I can't bring myself to clean off.  I don't want to blink again, or he will be going off to university *sigh*.

SUMMER AT LAST!

It was a fabulous weekend and what a treat to see our grandson and his friends spend it OUTDOORS, with not a tehno gadget in site.  It helps that we live on the shore of Lake Ontario and that the creek is at the bottom of our grandson's street.  They are old enough now to explore on their own, with the comfort of a cell phone for safety.  Fishing is the current favourite pastime for the boys and they enjoy catching and releasing fish at the creek.  It's summer, the way boys should spend it :)
