I had a bunch of fresh flowers that I put in a pot outside to decorate the balcony. This is how they looked after the water evaporated and the flowers dried in the sun. Aren't they pretty?
I have a friend who has display cabinets full of wonderful vintage & antique items all over her house. It is so much fun looking into each one of them. On my last visit she gave me a little cabinet. I decided to paint it black & line it with pretty paper, and keep my little perfume bottle collection in it. I am so thankful for my friend Ann and her kindness! I believe we are kindred spirits.
Can you believe this apron?! I think it is so pretty! I don't buy or make many aprons anymore, but I jumped at this one. All the work that went into it! I might actually wear it, but no, not while I'm cooking. Can you imagine getting spaghetti sauce down the front of it? It would be cute to wear at a vintage fair!
When we first built our house, my craft room and the laundry room shared a space. I outgrew the craft space and took over a guest room. To be honest, I've almost outgrown that space! I now have all my Etsy stuff in the laundry room. It's not perfect but it will work for the time being. Any way, this morning I was putting stuff away and I decided to take a picture of one little corner. I keep most of my vintage linens in the cupboards, but always leave one set of doors open so I can enjoy my pretty linens. I have a vintage laundry bag that I love, and I set my little clothespin bag that I just made with it.
This was one of those happy days! I found this pretty Grandmother's Garden quilt for $10.00! Yes, I was smiling from ear to ear! The lady behind me said she almost bought it, and the lady in front of me said she almost bought it too. I politely told them that I was very happy to find it, and it made my day! When I got home I washed it and put it with the pillow sham that I recently completed, and they are perfect together. Lucky me!
As most of you know, I love boxes. Big or small, it really doesn't matter. I had a free day today with no commitments. My mister is camping and I decided to tackle my list of unfinished projects. I got out my little wood boxes, some linen, buttons, pins and misc. and started in. I finished 3 little boxes. Then I finished up a bigger box with some paint and decoupage. It felt so good to get these done! I still have all afternoon to play! I'll let you know what I accomplished tomorrow! Happy Weekend!!
I'm an art teacher and junk lover! I like to hunt for and repurpose treasures from flea markets, old barns, yard sales and funky shops.
