I bought a gnome named Gus and things got out of hand after that. This is Gus, purchased on Amazon (used) for $17.43. I think he was a return because his eyes were crossed. After a while, I thought I could fix his eyes since I like to paint. I got carried away and touched… Continue reading The Gnome Rescue Project

So, I bought a very odd and old floor lamp, that weighs a ton, and spray painted it Grinch green because - well - I had that color. There was no plan, no great artistic statement, but I feel like all this 'fly by the seat of my pants' worked out very well this one… Continue reading Crocheted Lamp Shade
