Quilted Monogrammed journal

This past giveaway day I had fun participating in the giveaways around and hosted one too.

And ... I won this beautiful custom monogrammed journal from Pamela Quilts!
Isn't it gorgeous?

I love the bright yellows and blues. Its lightly quilted and has a little pocket inside to put in pens and stuff!

You can get one HERE at Pamela Quilts on Etsy.

Painted Peacocks

Its realy easy to jazz up something and make it look festive just by painting it!

My cousin gave me a tunic of hers to paint sometime ago. The yoke part was  framed by the trimming and basically empty. She wanted me to paint some flowers but I added a couple of peacocks with the flowers.

Here are some detail pics... I used copper for the legs, beaks and creeper stems to highlight the copper in the trim.

I continued painting the creeper around the back too!
