Very Berry :)

Sunday evening is a Hand-made Monday time, which is where I am linking up tonight :) I've got two craft pieces to present today. The first one is a festive bird on a holly bush from the mid-week post - see here - CLICK.
Another painted vase inspired by the nature itself. This time it's a berry motif. I find it so simple and so lovely - the sight of a branch with red winter berries in a glassy vase or intertwined into a wreath or simply berries growing on a bush, covered with ice :) The motif has been painted on the front only and it meant to look lightweight and delicate. "Not too much" - was my painting rule.



The silver twigs are meant to evoke the feeling of frost and coldness and the red berries suggest that somewhere under the snow and ice some life still exists :) For more pretty pictures of berries, please see my Pinterest board - CLICK
Now I'm off to hop around some blogs to see what other have been doing this week :)

  6. I've got 3 plain vases that I was considering giving away to get something pretty ~ i love the look you've created here. I had a go of painting on glass ages back ~ might try with the old vases I have to spruce them up a bit, esp with a Christmas look!

  8. The vase looks gorgeous and makes me think that I should do something with the plain glass vases I have - somehow don't think it wil look as smart as yours though, but certainly worth a try.
