Random Projects

Hope everyone had a great Christmas holiday!!  Lot's of work, decorating and cooking, but well worth it if you can enjoy all of the festivities. I haven't had much time to work and any projects so I'm posting some random things I completed before the holidays.
I found this adorable decorative, wheel barrel in the Goodwill for 6 bucks.  I thought it may look cute out in the yard with some flowers planted in it.  It was in great condition and just needed a little painting. I sprayed it white and then added some detail with acrylics.

A final few coats of varnish will hopefully keep it from rotting.


Several months ago, I felt like fooling around with some FIMO.  If you're familiar with FIMO, it's a moldable clay that is ultimately placed into a household oven to harden.  I designed this little garden of mushrooms just because-I love mushrooms.  They now sit on my kitchen table.

I used white clay for the stems, base, grass and base and red clay for the tops.
I then painted the base brown and the grass green.  When completed, the mushroom garden was clear coated with spray.
