Framed Boxes

I've been working on a few things that have Graphics Fairy designs on them.

I had some extra framing material left over from the putter display  I made last month from pallet wood.  I used it to frame two images.  They are a little like the bottom of a box, so I'll call them a framed box.



One is a strawberry image, the other an old label for animal powder (whatever that is!)



Each of these is 7 3/8" x 4 1/4", with the image glued on and coated with Mod Podge.  For sale through my website or at the local North Bay Farmer's Market where I am an occasional vendor.

Business Sign and Farmer's Market

I've been busy getting prepared for selling at the local city Farmer's Market.
This means making an inventory list, pricing items and packing the van.

I also made a new sign that will sit in my booth as well as hang outside on my property when I'm home.





The sign is all hand painted and made out of pressure-treated plywood with a pressure treated frame.  The frame was made by ripping up 2 x 4s and grooving them the width of the plywood and mitring the corners.

I'm not sure why the photos aren't clear, I think it's my camera :(




I appeared at the Farmer's Market last Saturday and will be at the upcoming Saturday as well.  I'm an occasional vendor, so if I get the call during the week, I can decide to go or not.

Another Rodeo sign

Anyone who is a fan of country music will most likely understand the wording on this sign:



Now on to other things...

Gearing up for the Rodeo

The rodeo is coming to town for the first time in conjunction with our yearly Fall Fair in September. I'm going to have a booth there to sell my wares, so I thought some Rodeo related signs would be a good idea.

This is the first one I've made, it's on pine, 10" x 18" and designed and hand painted by myself.



Last summer my husband and I went to the Rodeo in Cody, Wyoming and had a fabulous time.  I just love it out there in cowboy country!
