You've got to paint a picture or two !

Today i wanted to show you some pretties ive been working on this week.
Somewhere along the line (in the midst of all the faux cupcake hooplaaa) my passion for painting got left behind somewhere.....
BUT luckily i have found it again and this week ive been painting away like a crazy woman! I even painted our letterbox and the Recycle Bin...but thats a whole other story..*hee hee* Lets just say if its stands still for too long, there's a pretty good chance im gonna paint it !

As much as i love creating lots of different treasures, my true passion is painting so thats what i am going to be focusing on from now on. Oh i will still be popping the odd Faux Cuppie or 2 on my Website and Ebay, and i really cannot quit the glitter and frills cold turkey either (nor do i even want to,i mean really, give up glitter? you've got to be kidding me!)...but there will be more painting, i guarantee it! I am also still taking special orders for anything and everything i do.
It's just that i really really really want to paint!
So paint i shall.
Oh and paint i did :)

So here are a few pretties ive finished that will be available on my Website very soon... (maybe even tonight if i get myself organised..LOL)

A pretty timber Spice Rack and timber Cutlery Tray

Finally i painted a sweet little bird..i love how he has turned out!

La Vie En Rose on a small stretched canvas.

Gorgeous Queen Anne side table. I painted and sanded her before painting on some of my pretty roses in alternate corners.

Oh look i popped some new cuppies in there, LOL.they just need some pink ribbon trim and they are wheres that ribbon gone?? oh Sam..?????
Thanks Miss Rhea for the gorgeous heart toppers too. Arent they the sweetest!! Ive already started taking orders for these ones so feel free to email me if you'd like some before i run out.They are definately Unique!

And this one i have just completed. Hopefully it will make its way to my website later tonight.You can click on the image to see the detail better :)

Ok that about wraps it up for this lil rubber duckie. I am kinda cold here in my little office so im thinking its time for a nice hot shower, hop in my jammies and eat something thats disgustingly un-healthy for me (but tastes sooooo good).
You think i might be talking about chocolate??
*grin* you guys know me so well!

Have a gorgeous rest of the weekend my sweet friends!

Lotsa Pink Kisses Always,
Shann xxoo

Hi Shannon,
Well haven't you been busy! Where do you find the time to do all of your lovely creations? I just LOVE the spice rack & cutlery tray.
I am so with you tonight, shower pj's & something to snack on (is it counted as a snack if you eat the whole block?!) I'll bring the wine if you share the chocolate!

What gorgeous artwork you do, Shannon! Everything looks so romantic! I love your cupcakes, too! =)

Kerryanne English said...

Hi Shann,
I'm still laughing...... thought I would just pop in rather than 'pooping'on your blog (LOL) - gosh don't you wish there was spell check on 'Post a comment'?

Anyhoo sweetie, what a busy few days you have had. Love all your paintings and agree you should be devoting your time to your passion.

I love your tea cup rack thingy Shann, saucers are quite tricky to paint, you've done a great job!
I'm not sure about the little plate, I'll let you know, or I may even have another in my stack

Kelli @ Vintage Vavoom said...


You are so talented!! I love that teacup pretty. Thank you for stopping by my blog!

Glad you were able to take some time to paint.

Hi Shannon :)

Your creations are all so beautiful! I'm trying this painting thing, but I haven't figured out how to do any other kind of flower except daisies LOL I'm having fun though :)

Hopefully one day I'll be able to paint like you can. A girl can dream can't she? ;)

Oh and... your hubby puts tomato sauce on his stroganoff?? ewwww is right! ;)

Oohh pretty!!!! Love your little birdy, isn't wonderful when you get to spend time doing the things you absolutely love but sort of forgot about for a while? I hope you get enough chocolate to keep that creative streak flowing!! Kiss noises Linda Lilly Cottage.
