bowled over...

i have a confession to make. i am obsessed with bowling pins. oh yeah. bowling pins. i am in true love. every where i go, i look for vintage bowling pins. tall ones, short ones, skinny and stout ones. love. them. all. and i am having SO much fun painting some of them! the truly chippy, painted, fabulous ones (like in the 1st photo) are going to stay just as they are and live with me. (can't resist. just can't!) it is a delight to create something new from something old! it's true. so, while my little studio starts transforming into a mini santa's workshop...(HOW is Christmas a couple short months away!?)...my mind, and paintbrush, is on chipped up bowling pins from years and years ago:) here are some teeny gals that will be hitting the shop today!!

AND i am soooo super happy to announce that i have an article in the upcoming issue of Artful Blogging!! some of you little detectives already knew about my article...but i was keeping my lips sealed until i saw it with my very own eyes:) my issue arrived on our doorstep last week and there was some happy dancing involved:) thank you TONS to sweet Christen (senior managing editor) and the whole staff of Artful Blogging. i am so thrilled to be a little part of my favorite magazine!

the issue hits news stands november 1st if you'd like to take a peek! lots of xoxo to you guys! happy tuesday...
