Season's Greetings Giveaway

The other day while walking down the ally behind my studio I came upon this wooden butter mold laying on the ground by a dumpster. At least I think it is a butter mold. There's a handle on it and the whole thing is very smooth. So I took it home, scrubbed it clean, and...

Now it is a holder for my calligraphy pens and inks.

So it sits on my work table and of course inspired me to stop what I was doing immediately (bird making) and begin a piece with some sort of script writing (which I have not done for a very long time.) I decided to make an altered coaster ornament for the season festivities. I began by painting a wee angel.

And she will be the center of the coaster and I will finish this piece hopefully today to be given away so watch for the notice! *smiles* Norma

To see what other fabulous artists are up to drop by here!

Nice to see you again, and may this day be all that you hope.

  5. Yes! Bricks! It's the right size of a brick. Maybe there are bricks of butter out there in the world. It would be so satisfying to smack the thing out of the mold, whatever it is!

  6. What a great find! And how lovely that it so inspired you, the coaster is already looking beautiful!

  7. Oh wow -- and you didn't even have to dumpster dive for that one!!! I just love it when you find discarded items and see their potential!

    The coaster looks great. What a lovely looking angel.
