Thyme for Christmas cookies all around

I just love making Christmas cookies!

So this wooden bowl is a REAL favorite of mine

Don't the cookies look good enough to eat???
The shading techniques in this pattern were awesome!

I have only painted one of these

my most treasured Christmas decorations!

As always I like the back of my pieces to look as good as the front
I painted a piece of holly and signed my name and date.

  1. I don't blame you for not selling this little jewel. That's a lot of painting in that project. Love the way you finish the backs, too. Special little touches add so much.

I haven't picked up a brush in years.Well except for my makeovers but I would really like to get back into tolepainting. Enjoy your bowl, I can see why you wouldn't want to part with it. It's beautiful. Have a nice weekend,Sherri

  3. Lovely bowl...puts me in the mood for baking...I love baking German Christmas cookies - reminds me of my childhood growing up in Germany!

    I will start baking in a couple of weeks because the cookies I bake, need to "age" for a few weeks to get nice and chewy....yummm...

    Have a nice weekend!

  4. Oh Lynn, this looks like you could just grab a cookie and eat it. I really like this.
    Your shading is beautiful and love how you do a little something on your pieces on the back. Very clever. Have a good creative day.
