Announcement   TURNING SHABBY INTO CHIC!
The name of my business is "Country Mornings by Dottijo"
because nothing beats the sweetness of a true country morning no matter what the season. A cup of coffee, a paintbrush, or a craft, sweet country air and the sound of birds chattering, a rooster crowing, so many things make up this feeling of peace.
I have several hand painted pieces and list them one at a time.
My newest Maryland Business is RAGS R US because my true love is taking (new) shabby, homespun fabrics and lace and turning them into beautiful Custom OOAK wreaths and candle rings. I had started doing this as memory wreaths for friends, hubby's flannel shirt, a baby blanket, daughter's favorite blouse, things I could work into a design with new fabrics and trim. Always fun to do. Primitive, rustic, and country chic crafts, Farmhouse, designed by me , handmade and handcrafted ,are something that relaxes me. The "rag" wreaths take many, many hours to complete; the fabric assembly, the hand stripping of the fabric for fullness, the measuring and cutting of the pieces. The final assembly of hand looped pieces (not tied) and finishing touches of bows or trinket. I always look forward to the next project. The burlap flower wreaths are equally time consuming, cutting and measuring the burlap pieces. Each flower is individual. For me one of the greatest joys is watching someone smile when they see my artwork and crafts. That makes all the time and effort worthwhile.
I was raised "turning shabby into chic" (my mother's words long before the current trend of shabby chic). Turning something old & used into a thing of beauty is my idea of fun. I love painting old silver plate and have several blue ribbons for my tole painting.
