Introductions

Meet “Ruda”. This sweet little table is one that I purchased a few weeks back because I just could not resist her cuteness, her curves, and her detail that begged for some Knack affection. 
This little sweetie will not make it into the Etsy shop, but rather will be auctioned off at the upcoming Children’s Museum Chocolate Soiree coming up on March 15th. This is Knack’s third year in a row to donate a piece for the soiree, and it is always fun to come up with a whimsical little design for this event. I hope it brings in lots of monies for the hunnies!

{p.s. I forgot to mention that I had fun getting out a bunch of paint cans, and custom mixing this color! I wanted the perfect mint green to go with the colors in the paper….and I am loving how this new color turned out…and just in time for Spring! woot!}

Etcetera

Whew! It has been a busy, busy week around here creating some new furniture, taking on new custom projects…..and due to a certain sweet little addition to our family!! Most of you have probably already checked her out on the Knack facebook page……but if not, head over there to meet little miss “Roo”! We are a little puffy eyed due to lack of sleep…. and are making many potty trips outside….but Roo is a very sweet little puppy and we love her to pieces already.
I hope you all have a succulent weekend! {hardy har har!!}

Found Goodness

The two pieces of furniture that I have been working on this week….making repairs, stripping, sanding…..the works…..have been two of the craziest pieces full of found goodness I have seen in a while! I have never seen so many scissors, rubber bands, nail files, rollers, pencils, costume jewelry, perfume…..etc! 
This photo is what I saw when I opened the top drawer of the desk….and when I dumped it out it was amazing what I found. Then I opened up the bottom drawer and discovered that the previous owner had an obsession with scissors and the such.
I am working on getting a photograph of all the  goodness I found….I want to lay it all out in groupings….you all will laugh your fannies off.
Job love.

FYI

It has been  good to get back into the studio today and get my hands dirty. I have been putting things back in their places, loading my car up with goodies I brought from home for photo shoots, defrosting my fridge that got left open {oopsie!}, and repairing my saweet studio couch that got damaged during photo shoot moving. 
I love the studio couch so much, and it will never leave the studio because of its broken little leg that got it here in the first place….but I will repair it…and repair it….until it cannot be repaired anymore…..and then I’ll cut the legs off and use books or something else to prop it up on.
couch love.
