Hi Bloggerettes!  Whew, it was tough at the Auction on Friday night.
Everyone seemed to be wanting the same things and there was a lot of bidder greed going on.  Let's just say it was frustrating.
I did manage to get a few things.  This little foot stool was very plain brown wood with the ugliest fabric ever!  I kid you not.  It was too ugly to show ya'll!!!
I used some cotton canvas fabric and a bird graphic image from Graphics Fairy
Inspector No.1 gave it the go ahead.





Peggie and I fluffed up the booth at Fancy Flea. 

Okay, get out there and create, make, sew, bake, cook, draw, paint, photograph, write, repurpose or find something wonderful and share it with the rest of us!

~~hugs~~

Sissie, you must have laughed when you saw my inspectors in the pictures of my ruffle pillow, what is with them and the camera, that is so funny that inspector is right on the bird!!! I love your stool, I have one to cover, did you use t shirt transfer paper? I am always asking questions!

Adorable! I love that perky little bird. It's amazing that you would even think to put her on the little ottoman and how precious that looks.

That is one cute little footstool, Sissie! But, I think that Gabby has a real problem with the bird! I don't think she's too happy about it:)

Hi Sissy-

Your stool is so sweet and functional, so I'm sure you'll find a buyer for it quickly! I've used that same graphic for projects and love it. The Graphics Fairy has the best images for us to use. Can't wait to see more of your projects. You're on a roll so far!

What a wonderful job you did with stool; it's perfect in front of the wing chair.....My Simon looks just like your inspector no.1...

I so admire your ability and willingness to paint and redo furniture....I am just not very good at it....
