I found the greatest(?) painting in a thrift store. It was just calling for a little touch up! Here's the before shot:


Lovely, huh? But what really intrigued me was the story on the back:


(1.98 was the price. What a bargain!)

Anyway, I took it home to do as a joint project with my daughter, BananaAmbush. We thought it would be fun to work together. SOOOO, we touched up Nanny Beatrice's wallpaper, and added some fun rhinestones. We added in Nanny Beatrice (and her dog), set the table, and put a host of heavenly angels coming through the window. The portrait on the wall is of Noel Fielding, of "The Mighty Boosh" fame. Banana loves him and thought Nanny Beatrice might too. Here's Nanny's redecorated kitchen, all ready for the family to come over for Sunday dinner:



Here's a closeup of the heavenly messengers:



And of Nanny Beatrice Grace and her dog, with their arms "strate" up in the air! Look at all the yummy food. Who wants dinner?



Hope you like it. We think it's fun.  Smiley

Good job rackycoo and bananaAmbush!

I SO agree with all of the above. Your adaptation/homage to Nanny Beatrice Grace is wonderful.
