Thyme to see a Country Home


This is a Terrye French Design
that I have painted
called


Country Home
I cut the board
and
painted it
to look like a
penney rug


this is the bottom edge of the board



I love painting
Terrye's
whimsical folk designs!



I cut out a wood star
and
used rusty wire
to attach it to the board


I painted the word
SIMPLIFY
on it
I added some black check homespun
and
pinned on a
rusty bell and key
this is the finished piece




Hugs,
Lynn

  4. Oh lynn Sweetie...
    As always a beautiful creation by a beautiful lady. I love it. I love the little rug edge that you added, it sure did finish off.

    Thanks for tutorial on the rooster too. I just may give it a whirl. What do I have to lose? You can paint over your mistakes. How great is that?

    Hope you are having a beautiful day.

    Country hugs sweetie and lots of love, Sherry
