Antique English oak table

I was so pleased to find this gorgeous little antique table recently . I had such fun painting the design of bears, bunnies, kittens and easter chicks on either side .. The table is an apprentice piece and as such is a small version of a large table . It is beauifully made from English oak ..the drop sides spin around and lock into place to be supported by the legs..available on ebay SORRY SOLD

Hello all...
I have just finished the artwork on this beautiful antique box. I was very pleased to find it last week while out and about doing the rounds of the antique shops. The box has a lovely original pink satin lining ...a very special piece that could be used for keepsakes ,makeup or jewelry...for sale on ebay at the moment ..SORRY SOLD within 1 hour of listing ..gotta be quick !

The last few months have been mega busy around here us to decide to build a new house the year that the drought broke ! The moving date has been delayed several times now ..very frustrating but it looks like we will be moving in to our new place in about 2 weeks ...YAAAY !  I am so looking forward to unpacking and setting up my new studio so that I can be back painting full time again.. The house is coming together nicely . Not a large house by any means but it has everything that we need to make it a comfortable, cosy home . I think that the bears will enjoy living at the new 'Kathy's Cottage' .. I am also gathering my thoughts ( and imagination) for some paintings that I would like to do ..I am going for a classic French country inspired decor . Just hoping that it will all come together ok as I am combining some of my old pieces of furniture with some other pieces that I have been collecting over the past months.
I spent a couple of hours plein air painting with the Kiama group yesterday high up on a hilltop at Jamberoo yesterday ..It was a blissful escape for a little while and good for the soul to get out into this beautiful area.. :-)
