I first want to take this opportunity to say that I was so grateful to get
the messages from all of you on my little creations I shared in my last post.
I really appreciate the encouragement that comes from you all who read
You are so loving and thoughtful...
and you rock!!!
This past week has been full of 'have to dos'
I didn't get much time for the 'want to dos'
I did manage to paint some frames and mirrors that I had picked up while thrifting.
The one below has been on the wall for two years. (it was a dingy gold) not a pretty gold)) not like the awesome creamy one I have in the living room))) and every time
I would walk by it, I would imagine it white.
So now it's white!
This is a little corner of the bedroom.
I didn't make the beautiful coffee filter
I bought them last year while in Salt Lake City when I went to see
I've been going to make some...
(they are at the bottom of the 'want to make' list now)
and a cute little cream velvet hat.
In the living room, a plain white chenille pillow bought at a yard sale
gets a posy.
I have a friend who has a store in a neighboring town called Chic Antiques and she sells
these beautiful taffeta roses.
Just the touch it needed!
I gave this old silk lampshade a face lift with some vintage millinery and lace.
I'm joining Kathleen from Faded Charm for this week's White Wednesday.
Some of you mentioned that I should consider selling some of the things I make.
My daughters and I used to do the Artist Market in Hailey, Idaho and I sold many of the
things I made then.
I haven't done it for a few years, but plan to a couple this Summer.
I'm trying to get as many things done now, before the gardening gets crazy.
It would be fun to take part in it again.
We'll see if I get enough done to take part.
I'll let you know how it goes.
