Anzu said...

What a fantastic cat it is!

Painted rocks are sorta scary to me.

But nice? MB

Bill said...

The cat looks real. Nice paint job.

James said...

That's really neat stuff. The cat is interesting and sort of scary looking and the woodwork is amazing.

I can't wait until our market opens this year. I love the bright paint on the fish rocks.

Hilda said...

Great work on the cat — looks almost real. I like those 'overdecorated' bottles of wine. :)

I hope you and your family had a blessed and beautiful Easter Sunday, VP!

joo said...

Really amazing stuff - creative ideas! The bottles are....I don't know, strange. I wonder what wine it is:)

Dina said...

Your stones give me an idea of an activity for the grandsons next time I see them.
The wood is nice.
Painting on wine bottle straw, cool.
(Ha, reminds me of a class in elementary school--each of us drilled a hole in a chianti bottle, put in an electric wire, and made a lamp.)

VP said...

@ Dina - Who drank all those bottles of Chianti?

Kaori said...

Those stone paintings are really creative! I'd love some to decorate my veranda :)

i've really been enjoying these easter market photos.

My mother has a few stone cats. And I found a stone that I figured would look good if the painted it but she prefers that I buy then painted for her!

cieldequimper said...

Good grief, I thought that was a real cat. I need to go back to bed.

Lois said...

I think I want that cat!

Halcyon said...

That kitty looks quite realistic! I thought it was a real cat in the thumbnails. Lots of cute stuff here though.

Eleonora said...

The first image reminds me of Alice's Cheshire Cat!!

I may be an advocate of kitsch, but I actually quite like the fiaschi!

Ciao e Buona Pasquetta,
Eleonora xx

The decorated wine bottles, and other nice items made this to a very pretty and interesting posting.

B SQUARED said...

I love stuff like this. I want it all.

Dina said...

Haha, it wasn't me. Must have been my mother who emptied the bottle.
Hard to believe, but I don't like wine unless it is sweet or mixed with soda water.

Wolynski said...

The woodworks are good, but the rest is crapola - no, not your photos, but the painted stones and especially the bottles. Mind you, I like looking at crapola if it's cheerful.

JM said...

Very cool finds again! The woodworks are my favourites.

Andreea said...

These look really cute, especially the stone cat. I could see myself buying that for my little garden.
