Happy May Day!!

It's a beautiful, sunny morning and May 1st takes me back to my childhood memories of waking up and finding a little decorated dixie cup full of candy on my front step! It was so mysterious and fun!

Now I realize my Mother was probably doing this but she never did admit it. I was left to just wonder who my secret admirer was, but it was fun! And, well candy first thing in the just can't go wrong on any level with candy! :)

A week ago I attended our church rummage sale and found a few surfaces to recycle. Here are 3 small frames, very thick frames (will stand out about 2" from the wall) but tiny prints. I tried painting angels on a black surface, something I've never done. I can get rather anal when trying to shade skin and the faces in general and this was a good experiment for me. I tried to just let it be a little more rustic and/or primitive.

I painted the frames black and then distressed them a bit. I think they look pretty cute in a grouping :)

Our small town newspaper comes out once a week and today I found this!

There it is, my auction donation piece! ha! Ok, so it's a small picture and it's on the back page but it still kind of made my day♥

Have a super weekend everyone!!

*Yay* you made it to the paper ;)

Your angels are lovely on their own, but grouped together they are something very special indeed!

Congrats on making the paper.
Love those frames, they have a really old, weather beaten look to them.
