hello spring

a new painting for spookytime jingles tonight ... 
(there's a spring hootenanny going on!)

created on an old piece of salvaged barn wood.
i love the layers and history...
a one of a kind piece... so special and sweet.

the site updates around midnight EST...
stop on by if you can!

here's a little peek at some other fun things i've been working on!

these have all sold but i'm already working
on more for y'all!  these vintage spoons from around the world,
inspired me SO much!  they just looked like they needed to be turned into spoon people.  i'm tickled to bits that everyone loves them so much.  big smiles!! 

have a great weekend you guys!  xo..jenn

catching up...

hello friends!  well... i've been a bit under the weather.  crazy hives and allergies among other bizarre ailments.... so lovely.  i had great intentions to finish some more easter goodies but that flew out the window.  the good news is that my parents came for a visit and that was a very nice distraction.  the boys really enjoyed spending time with their mia and pappy...  very special!  they left to head back home this morning... we will miss them a bunch.  

i'm going to work on catching up.  getting back into the groove.  feels like i say that a lot lately.  life can throw you some curveballs, that's for sure!  but you just get back up and move forward!  grateful for that! 

i hope YOU are all doing just super!


bonjour you cuties! 
i do love a striped shirt and beret.  
so why not make a couple french artists!? 
(that is pronounced ar-teeeeests, of course)

madeleine and jean paul are now in the shop!  
happy thursday!  xox

who is ready for spring!?

happy tuesday to you! 
it's about 80 degrees here today (i know... i'm sorry!  it will be back to cold weather tomorrow... crazy texas!) and i'm thinking springy thoughts.  my newest lulettes are thinking spring too.  they just hit the shop!  i used a crackle glaze this time around.  hadn't used it in forever and i think i missed it!  i love the slight crackle the girls wound up with.  think i'll order the golden crackle paste next.  because i do love everything else golden makes!  

thanks for stopping by today!  sending you each a warm spring hug!  xox..jenn
