SANTA ORNAMENTAL TEA POT


Finding this vintage metal teapot was like finding buried treasure. The lines are remarkable. As soon as I held it, I new it would be a pot-bellied Santa Claus. The lever for the top is intact. I wanted to make the fur areas on Santa dimensional and used a texture medium to accomplish this. Each hair of his head and wispy hair of his mustache and beard are hand painted.

He has sparkling blue eyes that twinkle and his cheeks are so merry! I labored trying to make the boots work and I do love the way they turned out. He is painted all the way around. The tea pot is also gently antiqued. You can almost hear the “HO H0 HO”!

Measurements: He is almost 10-inches high and 6½-inches wide handle to spout.

This is truly a one-of-a-kind and sure to become a treasured Christmas decoration. See additional pictures in slide show at the bottom of the page.

This is, naturally, for decorative purposes only.

WINTER SCENE OIL CAN

I find that hunting for future painting treasures is so much fun, especially when you find just what you are looking for. This was an occasion where I had a design in my mind and had to find just the right surface. This smaller oil can was just what I was looking for! I chose an ombre-looking aqua blue background, added some frosty trees, snow covered hills and snowy-roofed houses and a church. It was still missing something and I added an ice frosted silver star for the top.

It was still snowing in my mind and I had to add some icy snow flakes to the whole piece. This is one of my favorite pieces and I hope you will be enchanted by it. Perfect for display the whole winter season! The star has been packed separately in the box to keep it safe.

Measurements: Height to top of the star to the bottom of the oil can is approximately 9-inches and is approximately 3-inches wide.

The WINTER SCENE OIL CAN is a one-of-a-kind piece. See additional pictures in slide show at the bottom of the page.

T'WAS THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS PLAQUE

This piece came directly out of my childhood memory of the night before Christmas when our Mom would read this wonderful book to us right before bedtime. I found this wonderful surface that looked like a stamp to me and thought it would be just perfect.

The surface is a wood composite. The house mouse is all tucked in with presents and popcorn under his bed and through the mouse hole to the living room you can see that everything is all ready for Santa to come down the chimney. Looks like the house mouse also helped himself to a bite of cookie! This was a fun piece to create and I hope it brings happy memories to you as well! There is an attached wire hanger.

This is a one-of-a-kind piece and is for decorative purposes only.

Approximately 12" inches long by 9¼ inches wide..
