So, what's with the title? I haven't done anything bad so don't worry. My mom's B-day is coming up soon and I wanted to show off what I got for her. Mom is pretty hard to shop for these days. You all know the person who has everything and if there's something they want then they buy it in no time flat. Every year it's a dilemma on what to purchase this present challenged person.
Mom, if you are there now is the time to turn away. No peeking!
So, what do you buy the person who has everything???
Well, a nose picking garden gnome with plumber's crack, of course!
Dear ol' mom just got a new shed and loves to garden so I figured this little guy would be perfect to greet her everyday out in the yard. Oh, and mom has a sense of humor so don't worry. She's gonna love him!
I got this little guy from Niswander Ceramics. This is one cool shop! My second favorites after the gnome is her Halloween items.
Look at the character on these faces! I'm a real sucker for any Halloween decorations especially cute ones. This shop makes everything from the smallest salt and pepper shakers to large sculptures. Laurie of Niswander Ceramics is one amazing artist so please check out her work.
Another very talented artist of mention is Giovanna Tataje Ocampo. I met her while doing my first Etsy chat the other night and yes, Giovanna, it is humid in Pittsburgh right now. These are her elaborate sculpture paintings that are created with a knife technique. They have a 3-D look to them and seem to jump off the page. Look! She even paints around all the edges. Beautiful, marvelous, and simply breath taking!
And my favorite!
Her brilliant work can be found on Etsy at GYS ART. Please take the time to stop by and look at this work. So pretty!
Enjoy your weekend! If you are Judy from Judith B Designs I know you'll be enjoying yourself. She's off to an amazing vacation. So jealous!
