I love going to the Salvation Army TS. I usually find something I can paint on. When I found this box in the Christmas section it had a fabric Santa attached to it. The kind that was made in China. I knew right away it was not a Santa box but a Frosty box so I purchased it and brought it home. As soon as I got it out of the car, while I was still in the garage, I ripped the Santa off and threw it in the garbage. I have nothing against Santa, I just don't really care for the Santa's made in China.
I painted an Aly's Room original on the box. I added a tall prim snow fella named Frosty and surround him with some winter greens and berries. I found the large pine cone while I was out on a walk with my border collie Sadie. There were several that had fallen along the side of the road from the stately pine trees that line the road coming into my housing addition. I picked up as many as I could and took a bag the next day to pick up some more. They have such a beautiful woodsy shape. I added an electric lamp with a soft silicone bulb to finish this piece.
While I was at the Salvation Army TS I bought 2 pair of boots to paint on. I have one pair primed and ready to paint. I'm so excited I can hardly wait to paint on them. I'll be doing a show and tell soon on those.
