Here are just a couple of examples of what each glass looks like. I have never seen glasses like these. It appears that there are also 6 shot glasses but we are missing them from this set.
Mel and I have been dealers at Midway Antique Mall for a while now and we have decided to expand to another booth.
The following are staged rooms done by the owners of Midway Antique Mall (Mark & Ann). They do a great job of capturing the feel of that time period.
-Delivery and Shipping
-Telephone Repair & Restoration
-Electronic Repair & Restoration
-Vintage Clothing Department
Mel and I re-entered the antique dealer market again after a short time away due to being too busy to keep up a booth. We are now at Midway Antique Mall at 5130 Madison Ave. Sacramento CA 95841. If you get a chance come check us out! We are excited about this new adventure and the great thing is we are only a booth away from our great friend Vic and the great items she is selling!
Mel and I saw these frames at the Antique Trove in Roseville and I thought I might be able to do something with them. I took them home and they sat around for a while. I figured since I have just got into water coloring this would be a great next project.
The first thing I did was sand down that tacky palm image so the surface was smooth. Once sanded I used an antique white flat house paint to cover the old image and give me a new canvas.
This one took about a day to paint. We are happy with the results.
This next one was more of an original idea.
I love that these frames were able to be used with new art. I think it is always important to realize that re-purposing items can make them new again!
Also, Here is another one I recently knocked out for our Tiki Room. I guess I am on some kind of jungle cat kick!
I think I will take a break from painting and pick up my gloves again and start restoring some furniture.
