Hand Painted Spoon Ornaments...

 These are a couple of Penguin spoon ornaments that I have created this earlier this year.  It has the wrapped wire around the handle giving it some charm.  This wire wrap went easier than the Halloween spoons I did, guess practice makes perfect.  I do have others I'm still in the process of painting, they will be similiar but with different painted designs.
 This Santa and Snowman spoons are different kind of ornaments I did, these are the first ones I did in this style. Do have pictures of the other designs on my web-site.  So I didn't ruin any good Antique spoons with the bending I bought these from Walmart to practice with.
I'm still trying to improve on the painted designs...

*Have a Great Day*

My Lady Puzzle Bug for Autism

Autism Awareness
The puzzle pattern reflects the mystery and complexity of Autism.
The different colors and shapes represent the diversity of people and families living with this
The brightness of the puzzle pattern signals hope..
hope through research and increasing awareness in people like you!

This is my first Lady Bug I made for Autism series.  It's puzzle colors are purple, yellow and bright blue it measures 5 1/2"L x 3 1/2"W x 1 1/2" H. This Puzzle bug would make a great gift for anyone, she would look good on any window or accent a plant also makes a great paper weight accent piece for your desk.  This Lady Puzzle bug has 2 coats of Outdoor Gloss sealer and is painted with acrylic paints.  I will be adding more of these Puzzle bugs to the series in the future.
