I’m very pleased to announce the giveaway of this gorgeous little table, created
by Los Angeles artist Susan Spinks.

The colorful piece is called “The Dance Recital.” (I especially love the crown on the elephant.)

Susan specializes in transforming 1950’s era tables and trays into works of art…

She says: “I paint my images on vintage trays and tables to tell a fragment of a story and let imagination fill in the rest.  All trays and tables are functional art and can be used for serving as well as decor.”

Susan has many more beautiful pieces for sale in her Etsy store.

This little table is 17 inches tall and 14 inches square. (It’s also a $100 value!) To qualify to win, please leave a comment here and visit Susan’s Etsy store. The winner will be announced on Tuesday.

Good luck lovies!

UPDATE! The winner is Michelle Carter!
