This small clock/cabinet I hand painted in a whimsical theme. Before it was painted the clock was an eggshell type white. After I took it apart is when I gave it a coat of primer, during the dry time is when I thought of what to paint on it.
The photo below is the finished clock/cabinet. Each color is 3 three coats and it has 2 coats of a gloss finish.
Top photo is the front.
With the door open to show the inside.
Showing the back and side. This photo doesn't have the feet yet, this was the step before the finish was put on.
This clock cabinet measures 13 3/4 inches tall by 9 1/8 inches wide by 4 1/2 inches deep. These are the outside measurments.
I completed this ornament tonight, worked all day on it. It's in Natural color with purple flowers, small silver colored balls and a silver tassel. All the Recycled Book Page ornaments that I make measure 5 1/2 inches dia.
Here are some of the Recycled Book Page ornaments that I have made. They can hang anywhere, they're are not just for Christmas. Can add a beautiful touch to your home or just hang on the tree. They make wonderful gifts for friend, teachers, family or just for you.
Yesterday was a very beautiful Fall day. My husband, son and myself went to the beach for a walk and later to Highland park. The conservatory had it's 100 year anniversary and they had free admission going on for the weekend, so the three of us walked thru looking at the beautiful flowers and live turtles they had in the spring fountains. While there I took some handpainted stones to hide for a person to find, hoping that it'll bring a smile for this beautiful Fall day. I'm hoping that any person that found one would comment on how they felt when it was found and that I was able to brighten someones day. Or if they left it in another location for a person to find.

The weather was nice and sunny, but still a bit chilly. The heavy snow that came up the east coast missed us, boy were we lucky. The three of us went for a nice walk outside at Highland Park, my husband and son went ahead while I went around placing handpainted stones where they could be found by someone, and hoping to brighten there day. I place a total of seven stones throughout the park and one was placed on NaNa's tree, this is a tree that has been dedicated in Memory to my mother. As I was sitting in the car waiting for my husband and son to return, I noticed a couple looking at one of the stones, but they left it for another person to find. I'm hoping that a Lucky person that finds one will post where it was found and tell a little about how they felt.
