If idle hands make the devil's work then he doesn't like me at all because I have been busy, busy, busy........Just a few things I have been working on for the booth. This week I will take away bunnies and tulips and daffodils and make way for the red, white and blue. If something tickles your fancy........let's talk.
Vintage, cloudy and lovely in shape, ....... old glass bottles altered to gloriousness (google tells me that's not a word .....really?? :)
A vintage cream suitcase........a raggy fabric flower, lace, toile, and burlap leaves....we're having fun now and super cute storage :)
Pinwheels......quintessential fun!. I keep them on my front porch all summer, along with tiny American flags. These on a stick, I made from vintage children's song book pages and old buttons....colorful and sweet.
Wouldn't this be fun for someone with a summer birthday? Made a few pinwheels as gift toppers with ribbon streams and a gift tag.
And lots of re-makes going on too. This lady .....so resplendent in all white now....a little chippy, a little shabby and a whole lotta just perfect. She's heading to the shop too........lucky lady!
Tuesday (4/24) I am going to a party.......yeah and yay! It's a party right here and you can come too! And it's a slumber party so you have to bring your own pillow.....because you just know there's going to be a pillow fight.
My pillow is one I just made.......one to go on the new sofa. I ordered down pillows for the sofas, but they still weren't squishy enough and comfy enough. So I made one. I am seeing the pretty florals and geometric Ikat designs everywhere and wanted to add just a touch of it to the family room but wasn't having much luck finding what I wanted. Then one day, I found a yard and half of this fabric at an antiques store. It's a modern piece but looks like a combination of old red ticking and faux "red work" and it was perfect. I think the red floral has a very contemporary look to it. I just added a simple flange to the borders and made it about half the size of a bed pillow so now in the evening I have a great pillow for watching T.V. on (aka napping).
P.S. Do you know how to pronounce Ikat?? I didn't. Sherry told me. It's pronounced "ee-cot"......not "eye-cat" as I was saying. LOL
So that was my week and along with the party, this week is a busy one too. Will be working on redoing my space at the antique mall, going on a day trip, my youngest is coming home for a few days (happy Momma), and I have an appointment to see about my knee (owie. It's been giving me a fit for a long time.) Hope your week is the best! XO
I am so appreciative when you choose to follow my blog and if you do already.....I thank you so much. ♥ It's always a pleasure to join these wonderful parties.....charming hostess and full of inspiration. I know they will love it if you give them a visit.
