Remember the post with the three paintings?  Or at least knock-off prints of paintings canvas?  One really is a real painting, the other two are prints on canvas.  Well, I took one of them, squared it up nice and got THIS out of it!  I couldn't be happier with the end result for my first try at a market bag.  This guy is big enough to carry a dozen ears of corn, 3 onions, 6 tomatoes, head of lettuce AND that fantastic sour dough bread the Mennonite women make at our local farmers market.  I'll bet it would even hold a bunch of fresh cut flowers, a jar of local honey, a gift of handmade jewelry for a loved one AND a dozen cookies.

This bag even got my husband's stamp of approval.  Now we need to come up with a name for this little division of TygerLily.  Got any good ideas worth sharing?  If you do, try to get the name Bonnie worked into it somewhere.  I have my reasons.

Thanks for looking and ENJOY this wonderful weekend!!
 
 
Here's a new idea that someone at work threw at me this week.  So off I go to Goodwill to see if they would have any paintings on canvas for sale.  And they did!!!  So what do you think will happen (on the redesigning side of my biz) with these beautiful canvases?

As you can tell, even my husband is intrigued by this idea.  So even though he has a full evening in his band tonight, he came out to help de-frame these bad boys and get the stretcher bars taken off.  I tried to get our woodworking neighbor to take the frames, but for some reason the knocked around look didn't trip his trigger.  :)

Keep an eye open for some interesting reworks on these canvases......  any ideas?

Remember, color outside the lines - you may end up with a better picture than the original!
