Neutral Fun

Hi all, and happy Tuesday.
I have been having a lot of fun lately with neutrals. Blacks, whites, creams and silver. Thought I would snap a few photos of what I call having fun.
Making up little vignettes using these neutrals. The picture of the Madonna and child is a candle that I made using this wonderful graphic.
In the photo of the silver dish with the butter knife, well let me tell you what fun that was. I got some new metal stamps so I could stamp on silverware. It takes some practice, and you sometimes get your fingers smashed by the hammer, but the outcome is pretty cool. I am just learning, and it's kind of tricky, but fun!!
I used to be into more reds, greens, yellows, but now I'm changing a bit. I love old and rusty, tarnished and worn.
This week I'm working on an old train case that I got from a flea market. I will show it to you when it's finished.
Hope you are all having some fun too!
Have a great week.
Chat again soon.

Gorgeous post Rosemary! I love the way you play! I recently found an old set of those metal stamps in an elderly neighbor's garage....haven't tried to use them yet though. I did buy some of those stamped pieces of silverware at Anthro to keep and to give as gifts....really love them...
Can't wait to see what you do!
Have fun!

These hues are my favorite. Who needs color......O.K., maybe that is too drastic of a statement, but I so love these platinum colors and tones! UN COUP DE G√ČNIE! (A stroke of genuis)!

Oh my goodness, I have the same cabinet as your black and white scalloped one, mine is in pink though. Funny. Everyone loves it, but I don't know where I originally came from.
