Santa's Workshop

I'm gearing up for our Portland Art Collective holiday sale....And the Little Things Show at Guardino Gallery..
... I have a gaggle of "Finial Girls" with little carved faces. They swivel on a fishing hook. And have a beautiful assortment of ribbon for her skirt!

Many hours of toiling away in the garage, I'm trying to finish up all the outside work before the weather gets to cold, this weekend.

Here is a almost finished batch of Flaming Heart Milagros, I wrote about them on the Portland Art Collective Blog Here. They are all hand cut, shaped, painted waxed and ready to be hung.
Finally a little batch of Vintage Top Birdies. Little doesn't mean easier! LOL, I'm finding out that tops were made from VERY hard wood, and attaching wings proved to be challenging, after 3 sets of 22 cut wings I figured out a solution. The 3rd wheel helps him balance and is meant to be sculpture and not functional, their very cute!


  1. You have been a busy girl! I love the new bird line very cute.

  2. I like your heart milagros with words and your little 'finale girls'. It's fun to see your workshop, too.

  3. It's really fun to see you at work. Love the vintage top for the bird--how cute.

  4. Fabulous! You amaze me with all that you accomplish and you know how much I love your flaming hearts! I can't wait to see everything in person.
