Let it Snow, Let it Snow

I love to paint on many different kind of surfaces. One of my favorite surfaces in a plain old coffee can. These metal cans will probably become a thing of the past since they are being replaced with plastic (boo hoo). I make wooden tops for them. They make good containers for just about anything, especially cookies.

This cute snowman was designed by Terrye French. It is from her painting book “Winter Holly and Christmas Jolly” published in 2000. Unlike me, some things never seem to grow old.

Would love to hear from you about your painting experiences and your favorite patterns that never seem to grow old.

    Hi Betty. Hope you are well. I would settle for just the tin. Billy can have the cookies! he he! Absolutely stunning!! Really love your painting. Thanks for sharing the name of the book. Will have to look that one out.

      Florence, Thanks for stopping by and the comment. You know how to make a lady feel good even when she dosen’t. Must get out the paint and brushes and get busy.

    Hi Betty,
    I love Terrye French books. I also have many of her patterns and painted one of her sheep designs on a wooden plate last month. Love your tin can…you did an awesome job painting it.

      Hi Cindy, Thanks for your kind comment. I looked for your sheep design painted on a wooden plate but did not find it. Maybe you can include it in a display in a later post.

        Betty…the sheep design is in a book called “Americana From Our Hearts” by John Sliney and joined by Terrye French, Laurie Speltz and Maryjo Tuttle. I purchased mine from Hobby Lobby about 4 or 5 years ago, but I think it is still available to purchase online.

    Thanks so much for the info on the sheep pattern. I love the work of John Sliney. I will definitely try and get this book.
    Cheers, Betty
