This is a white Roseville Vase that had a little chunk gone and a hairline crack. This is a beautiful Weller Vase and it had a couple of chunks gone out of it. The third is another Roseville planter and the chip at the bottom is the only chip it has. The other white spots are papers stuck to it. The little green bowl had a chip at the rim. It was the smallest, but the hardest to repair. The paint was so hard to match. This is what they look like when I finished. I'm working on some Roseville and Hull for myself right now. And the lady tonight is getting some more pieces for me to repair. She let several of her friends see my work and I will get some from them. Keep me in your prayers that I will start getting a lot of repair work. I worked very hard in my classes to learn to do this so I could support myself.
Thank you for stopping by to meet me and hear about My Tattered Elegance.
My name is Pat, I'm a self taught artist, junker and creative person. I paint on nearly any surface, make ribbon roses one petal at a time, do ribbon embroidery, form roses from the oven baked clay. I also do some sewing for my home.
My favorite pasttime is not going shopping at the mall, it is going shopping at a good yard sale, or fantastic estate sale or a big flea market. The thrill of finding that special something is better than chocolate (and I love chocolate). I'm even one of those ladies that stop and load my car with the cast offs on the side of the curb. Some of the curb trash becomes my best finds.
I'm at home here in Fort Worth, Texas and love it. I have a married daughter, Kim. She doesn't have any children only three cats. I also have a married son, Kent. He has two sons, Bryce and camron. Also one daughter, Payton. She is the one that comes and paints with me. And she loves to use my beads to make jewelry. Grand-daughters are so much fun.
