I had a Sugarwings day today. No creating art, just creating fun. We read stories, went for walks, did some shopping, and she played with her new toy. Is there a kid on the planet that doesn't love these Fischer Price push toys?
This cutey sure loved it!
And speaking of cute- You HAVE to check out Little Miss Twinkle's portrait by the talented Bethany Hissong at http://bethanyjanehissong.blogspot.com/. Wonderful, huh??? She really captured her personality. And look at the sketch of the pig-tailed little girl while you are there, so adorable.
If you have ever bought holiday paper cups or plates at Target or Walmart, or a needle craft pattern at Hobby Lobby, chances are you have bought some of her work. Her name is Vicky Howard and her art is everywhere, and should be, it is so pretty.
I do own one of her originals, not her typical work, though. She and I were on a committee to decorate the tables at a big fund raiser for a kid's art organization here in town, and we made painted flower pots as centerpieces. They were then sold that night to add to the other money raised.
Speaking of that estate sale- I hadn't shown a photo of this wrought iron garden bench I bought from Vicky. She gave me the patina-ed terra cotta cherub, she is a sweety. Actually, both are sweeties, Vicky and the cherub.
I also bought this oval vintage painting at the sale last week. It is actually on ceramic. The frame too, it is all one piece. Unique, huh?
I have another Sugarwings day tomorrow, can't wait!
