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.

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 :)

Well. the weather has been warming up, the birds are singing and our magnolia tree, our apple blossoms and our lilacs are all starting to bloom. I'm looking at my summer schedule, but I always do better when I have a goal, so I'm thinking about having another show at the end of July. I know summer is not traditionally, the best time, but I have a zillion ideas swirling in my head and want to try some of them. For the first time, I'd also like to ask my customers what they would like to see - the tiny bears, the larger bears, dressed bears, undressed bears etc., so if any of you have ideas, please post here of email me with suggestions. Can't wait to hear from you.
