Making pillows and finding stuff...

Hello Sweet Bloggers!
Not much new going on around here.  Just checking on our home building process.  We are currently in the frame up stage.  I can't wait to move in but it will probably be another four months.

In the meantime I'm making pillows, finding and painting stuff and filling up my booths.

I gave this burlap pillow a little pocket holding a vintage photo and a fresh lavender bundle...

 Found this vintage mirror in another booth and a great piece to be used as a pediment...
 Wouldn't this be pretty hanging with a grouping of frames or on a piece of furniture or mantle...
 I gave this little table a new look by painting the top in a seacove blue.

It's the weekend so be sure and get out there and find something wonderful and share it with us.

Hi Sissie,

I haven't left a comment in a while (I'm working on a play and am overwhelmed at the moment) and I wanted to say hello. Your pillow is lovely! Can't wait to see your new home.

More than cute my talented friend. FAB! Might just have to ROB this idea from YOU! LOVE IT!

Hope you are doing great with the new house. I'm kinda jealous. Moving would force me to clean the garage. AWK!
