Rene at Rockhoppers, my favorite artist!

Check out Rockhoppers Coffee Shop website! Rene and I futzed around on a design for a folk-art headboard to grace the bed that my sister and her husband sleep in when they visit me here, and this is what we came up with. You can't see all the great detail in the photo, but you can get a sense of the color scheme and the great whimsical beauty of the design.

I also have a small table, chair, and lamp that Rene painted using thrift store bargains. The set is all done in violets and pansies with a checkerboard accent in small areas.

My sister and hubby found the old bedstead at a thrift shop, brought it to Rockhoppers for Rene to fiddle around with, and this is the result. I'm VERY pleased and can hardly wait to get it home to Cottontail Acres for J & P to experience when they come visit in October.
