Last projects

Some of my last simple you know I spend most of my free time in the garden and I've not so much time for new creations...this winter has been so long and hard that I now feel like breathing open air...

...I made the two decorative boards from wooden tablets...

..they have urns and topiary subjects...

...I used image transfer because unfortunately I cannot paint...

...same technique for the devotional candles....I haven't electricity in my garden, so I need to have a big amount of candles...I'll decorate them with a lot of different images!

Nothing creative during this week...a big pipe in the kitchen was broken down...a lot of water in the kitchen and chaos...plumbers, bricklayers and in the next days the painter...I had to move everything from the kitchen and then I'll have to move everything back!

Thank you for all your nice comments on my previous post...I'm happy you liked my little bed!!!
Have a nice and sunny week end!!!

Your boards and candles are beautiful. I decorate candles too, you can't get enough of them, and it's very decorative.
I also create less things now. It's nice to go outside and enjoy the good weather.
What a bad luck you had in your kitchen. I hope it's all well now.
Have a great weekend,
Hugs Ester

Transfer image...... Very nice indeed. I sat here with my coffee and when I saw your creations I nearly had my coffee in my throat *big smile*
You are a fantastic source of inspiration Vale.
Yesterday I held my lovely linen lavender bag in my hand and I sent you a thought of gratefulness. It makes me feel so happy and just by holding it in my hand I get a lot of inspiration. So today I hope I´m going to create some new things.
Wish you a nice day and a lovely weekend.
Take care :) :)
Hugs Mia

Oh so great....real art, although you had not painted this....a real artist......
Do you iron this on the board? But how do you do this on the candles?
Love it, love it.
Take care and nice weekend

Ciao Vale, magnifici questi dipinti!!!
Sei stata molto ingegnosa nel realizzarli, come si dice "necessitate virtute", bellissimi anche i ceri votivi, le immagini applicate li rendono più suggestivi!!!
Adoro i giardini illuminati solo con fiaccole e lanterne, hanno un qualcosa di magico!!!
Ti auguro una buonissima giornata, Annamaria

Dear Vale
Dont say you are NOT CREATIVE...! - Gardening is high creativity :-)
I am sure your garden will look beautiful during summer!

I think I have started to be a bit allergic to something out in the air,... - trees or something, I am feeling bad this weekend. But still, gardening!

have a nice weekend!
