Date for Country Sampler shoot~~Faux Redware

Hi everyone...I hope you're having a good week!!!...Things are busy around here as usual...And even more so since Bill called two days ago and the photo shoot for Country Sampler will be on July 22...Still don't know the season yet..I will know what rooms on maybe the 15th....It's sooooooooo exciting!!!!!...But also a little stressful!!!

I forgot to tell you all about my eye appt...I do need some glasses, but he feels that just the store bought reading glasses will be fine for now since I just need them for reading and x-stitching....So I was relieved!!...Sure didn't want to have to spend the money on expensive glasses...We have been doing that for years for Taylor...So now I can get me some cute little designer spectacles..Don't they have different colors and designs?....I haven't really looked at them before, so I need to do that since it's been a week and a half since my eye appt already...Speaking of eye appt. it was interesting to say the least...Thank goodness Tim came from work to help with Luke...Taylor and I both had our eyes dilated...

Well, my cabinets are finished and 3 out of the 4 are in their places...I was going to take pics, but the bedsheets are in the washer and I didn't wat to take a pic showing the bed with only the mattress...So maybe I'll do that tomorrow along with the one in the family room...

But I do want to share what I have been working on...Yep!...Faux redware!...I love pottery!...In fact I've bought some new pieces this week..But I bought these dinner size plates in Myrtle Beach back in April at Old Time pottery...I didn't say anything because if they didn't end up looking good then no one ever needed to know...LOL...I've always wanted some with our names on them and then the others were just random designs I liked or adapted to my own design...So don't look tooooo closely!!!...I did these freehand...I'm not sure where I'm going to put them!!!....Here they are still drying on the kitchen cabinet awaiting some coats of satin varnish....What'cha think?????

















Well, off to finish a late supper..Tim has been mowing grass since he got home!!...Have a great weekend!!!...hugs, Jen

ACK! I LOVE them! Please share your technique for painting them, like what colors of paint, and what kind of brush you used for the details! I have a large collection of wooden plates I've purchased at thrift stores through the years, and this is the perfect thing to use them for!

Janene said...

OMG! Those look so real!

I hope you decide to do a tutorial!
And Congrats again on the CS shoot!
