Pretty Little Trays

Getting off to a rather slow start with Christmas decorating this year.  There's nothing like being under the weather to suck the Christmas spirit right out of you.  But, I did manage to get a couple of these cute little trays painted for the store.  They started out as black, but I decided to paint of few of them to give the customers some choices.

I love the dainty scrolls on this little tray giving it 
a sweet and delicate look.
The first one I painted a sage green, but since I filled it with so much greenery, 
you can hardly see the tray.

The next one I painted off-white.  After painting all of these trays, I waxed them with a mixture of clear and dark wax to give them a more aged look
and protective finish.

Last, but not least, is a red version for the holidays.

This little Santa looks a little lost.

So which one is your favorite?

I love them all.....probably the white is my favorite.
Hope you are feeling better. You have had so much to deal with. I hope your mother is doing okay.

Well, I love them all, but my very favorite is the white one. I'm all about the whites this year.

Love them all but I love the sage one best for year round and the off white one for holiday.

Well done, absolutely lovely. You do great work.

Hope you are feeling better soon. I know this rain isn't helping!
