Speaking Of Chickadees......

I've been making some products from my latest vintage tin that you last saw in the below post. The above wall clock is probably my favorite.
Although it looks like metal, the above is really a nice soft, rubber mousepad.
Framed tiles and Jewelry boxes.
Last but not least, felt footed tile coaster sets. This tile was one of my favorites for making home decor pieces from because so much of the tin detail was transferred onto the new products. So far they are available at my ETSY shop: http://www.artfulcreations.etsy.com/ .

Absolutely stunning Ruth!! I like that the design transferred over...

I too think the clock with the black next to it makes the design pop.... GREAT JOB!!!

Ruth, these are so unique! Chickadees are actually pretty friendly little birds and one of my favorites. Your painting is perfect, as always!

These are great, Ruth! I had to take a second glance at the mousepad because it looks so 3D. I think this will be a really popular image for you. It's one of my favorites too!
