So...instead of locking myself in the studio to make more Christmas Yummies....
Or spend more time at the store doing resets...
I went out and painted Tinker!
Inside and out!
I love being outside...The garden is my second home no matter the season so it just seems fitting that I get Tinker house finished so that I can enjoy it during the winter months.
Here in Indiana...that could be awhile.
I finally got to paint the outside with a mix of paint made up of all the different shades and finishes I have been using in the rest of my home renovation. So I have no idea what color it actually is but it reminds me of a white chenille bedspread I have. So white chenille works for me!
Well, I wanted to be like opening a beautiful little jewel box lined in an exquisite pale, icy aqua silk. I did a water stained silk finish on the old doors/walls.
Hubby finished the upper deck...
So I made myself a little perch.
Like a bird in the trees...I can look out over my garden.
Vintage dotty lace and that very piece of dotted chenille I used as inspiration for the outside color compose the "bedding" in my little perch.
As far as decorations for the season...icy shades of aqua, silver and white!
It's 100% soy and scented with French Fig essential oil. Love It!
My little jewel box definitely has some little jewels and treasures!
This weekend I will be planting my white tulips in pots for the winter months as well as some paperwhites.
I am loving it!
It is so nice to have all of my lamp making parts (they are under the skirted table) and gardening tools in one place.
Here is another shot of the hardware Hubby made to hang my antique pocket doors!
After I plant my bulbs...
I am going to spend the rest of my weekend installing the final pieces of glass in Tinker. This way we can turn on the heat as it gets colder for the plants I have inside!
Then...back to my studio to make more Christmas goodies for the store.
I am also going to do a give-away on Monday...
It will be some of my new Tinker House Collection pieces that will load in my etsy shoppe next week.
So until next time...Have a wonderful weekend!
