New "Retro Sweets" series

Recently I asked myself, "What do you really want to make?" This is the answer to that question:

Enamel on copper mounted on up-cycled spring form pan

My most recent trip to the thrift store resulted in a group of vintage baking tins and trays. I was inspired by these items and wanted to have some fun. To me, the image of a cupcake symbolizes pure happiness and delight! Enjoy!

Before and after of salvaged retro chairs

I found this pair of chairs that was calling out to me to fix up. To me their style was so simple yet unusual. I gave them a good sanding, replaced the seats and re-upholstered with new fabric and foam. I painted them in a bone white color. The new neutral look of these chairs would compliment any kitchen, living room or office.
