Just Random Stuff....

Hi Bloggerettes!
Wanna see a cute little vintage dresser I found at auction.
You will have to take my word that it was pitiful and ugly because I get in too big of a hurry to take a before photo.


This little rocker was my Mom's childhood chair.  It's just plain sweet!


I made a "sissie pillow to show you....

Flowers on my patio.  I played around with photoscape's
editing with textures......

Not much exciting going on around here right now, so my posts are sorta blah.  Glad you're hanging in though because I'm sure hoping for a spark of creativity so I can wow you!  Stay tuned, I just know it's going to happen.
                                          ~~hugs~~
                                            Sissie

Sounds like you have been a busy person too...great projects. Can't wait to see what you come up with this summer...more cuteness I'm sure! Have a blessed week.

Oh Sissie Girl...
If this is blah, then it is the most exquisite blah I have ever seen.

I love this gorgeous little dresser, and the white is definitely the right choice. I love it. The glass knobs are so cute and I simply adore the 2 little drawer pulls on bottom.

Now that little chair is something else. How wonderful that it belonged to your sweet Momma.

Now you know I am your biggest Sissie pillow fan, so I love that share. SO pretty and soft.

Lastly I love the play with the photo. Makes it truly look like a painting. Gorgeous.

Have a beautiful evening sweet friend. Many hugs and much love, Sherry

Sissie...I know exactly what that dresser looked like before....two toned wood and not real pretty.....good job with the paint contrast....also, I have my Grandaddy's rocker which is almost identical to the one you have....I painted it white too!! And the photo you altered.....looks just like an antique lithograph....very nice.......

Love the dresser and the other pretties.

CHERI said...

You always have something gorgeous to share. I have my husband's childhood rocker. It's red so I display it at Christmas under my kitchen tree that has gingerbread men and cookie cutter decorations. I sit a gingerbread doll in it. It's always something a little special that I look forward to every year.

Amy @MaisonDecor said...

Hey you! sometimes you need a lull, after some good projects. Don't forget that great grey chest you just finished. I have the ups and downs after I finish things...by the way I think Sissie Pillow is a marketable line!

Never blah, always interesting. Don't stop.

I think your post is delightful, Sissie! Your Mom's chair is precious and so special. Your vintage dresser and pillow are beautiful. I always enjoy coming by and visiting. Have a lovely rest of the week.

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

Any post with a "Sissie pillow" is a "Wow" post to me, Sissie! I like the gray and white on the dresser. That seems to be the big thing now and without even realizing that, I redid a candlestick in gray and white!

June said...

I never think of blah when I think of you Sissie!!!! I love the sweet little rocker and of course your dresser and pillow are just more proof of your wonderful talents girl! If I got half of what you get done in a day I would be happy!

Lululiz said...

You really have the loveliest home, Sissie. The photo of the chair, with the gorgeous bedside table full of beautiful treasures right next to it, just makes we want to sit down in it and not get up again.

Lynette Killam said...

This is a wonderful post, Sissie...nothing blah about it! You did a great job on the dresser...it's totally charming, as is the sweet pillow you made. I think about tackling projects like this but seldom follow through. I'm afraid procrastination usually rules in my world...LOL!
