A Few Projects to Show You.

Hi Bloggerettes!  What's happening in your neck of the woods?  Down here on the beautiful coast of NC we are hoping for sunshine and warm weather.  It is getting close to the golf and vacationing season and all of us at Miss Minnie's are fixing up our booths and hoping for Spring!

I've been busy making a few things that I want to show you and see what you think.

This sweet vintage, crocheted collar I purchased from Miss Minnie's own, "antique and vintage linen lady!"  I had to embellish it a little by adding two rosettes and a vintage pin.  I'm gonna put it in my etsy shop.  Which by the way, has yet to make its first sell.
(boo hoo!)  But, I'll keep trying.
This next item I might have shown to you before but it's worth repeating.  This vintage slip is made of a taffeta fabric and is the softest peachy/pink.  I added the matching ribbon to give it some Ooo-la-la.  It will be in my etsy shop too.
Another dyed vintage slip with a sweet pink rosette...

I made the burlap wreath, inspired by Linda writer of Craftaholic
Anonomous, and Amy writer of All Things Home.
These two ladies are so talented, so be sure and go visit them.

I used mine like this too....

This picture was taken in my booth of a little brown chair painted white and of course, I had to add a fleur-de-lis thingee.
I am having so much fun with  these rub ons.

Ok, I'm done.  I better save some for the next post.
Oh, how I love yall!

I think I love your fleur de lis rub-ons as much as you do, Sissie! I love to see all the different places you put it. When I come into your blog now it's like playing "Where's Waldo?" except it's "Where's the Fleur de Lis?"! ; )

I love everything in all of your photos. Be patient with Etsy, it takes time. I've been on since October and have only 9 sales. Sigh! It's like anything else, if you build it, they will come! LOL!

Hi Sissie,

First of all I have to tell you that I just adore your sweet and vibrant personality. It's always so fun to visit with you!

I love all the items you featured today and your space is so lovely.

I thought you should know that I've been to four Wal-Marts trying to find me some fleur-de-lis thingy's and they are all sold out! I think the country is reading your blog and buying them all up!

Love and hugs,

Rebecca said...

Wanna trade houses???? Huh? Huh? Huh? I could sooo live with your pretties.

But hubby would miss me.

Love to you Oh Talented One...


Secondhandrose said...

What a pretty blog. I just found it. Your slips are so colorful and fun.
Come for a visit.


Sares said...

That wreath is going in the memory bank to try for sure! I will have to head over and see the two ladies you recommended, I am in need of craft ideas for an enterprise I have in the works!

Debby said...

WOW!!!! So many pretties. I love the burlap wreath.

Amy Kinser said...

Sissie, my friend, I love your wreath and love that you have it hanging on your chair. Aren't you neat? Thanks for the shout out.

Girl, you amaze me with all your talents and neat stuff.

Have a great night. Love you too, friend.

Draffin Bears said...

Hi Sissie,

I love all the beautiful things you have been making.
The vintage slips are so gorgeous, and the burlap wreath.

Have a great week

GardenofDaisies said...

It just takes a little time for people to see the shop and find the thing that really speaks to them. Dont 'worry, it will happen. Did you see my last message on your previous post?

~ RM said...

So soft and beautiful~ I love all of your creations! :) I'm sure the etsy thing just takes a little time, it's all about the 'word of mouth'.
I love that wreath!! I think I have to have one!

Riet said...

HI Sissie. Another beautiful post. I love the wreath you made and of course the lovely slips.

My name is PJ. said...

Where do you find all your energy, Sissie???!!! You pull together the loveliest of things!

Country Wings in Phoenix said...

Good Morning Sissie Sweetie...
I so adore this post. What beauties you have made here again. I just don't know how you do it. You have the bling for decorating let me tell you. I love this collar with the flowerettes and the bling. So beautiful.

I made one of those burlap wreaths too. So cute and simple. Yours looks so elegant in both ways, but isn't that the cutest on the back of the chair. Gives an element of surprise to the dining room area. I just love it.

You are so creative and I just cannot imagine how anyone could walk into your beautiful booth and not walk away with many things. You and those fleur-de-lis are just beautiful. You could do some serious happiness in Paris let me tell you.

Have a beautiful day sweetie. I so adore your work. It is breathtaking for sure. Over the top GORGEOUS. Country hugs sweetie and so much love. XOXOXOXOXO Sherry

Hi Sissie,

It is so nice to meet you. Thank you for stopping by my blog. I love your goodies. That wreath is calling my name. Your booth is fantastic. Can't wait to see more pictures.

Big hugs,

Hi Sissie,
Your blog is enchanting, so soft and pretty! The burlap wreath really caught my eye. I will enjoy following along.
Also thank you for visiting and entering my Blogiversary PB Giveaway. Good luck!

Shellbelle said...

Sissie, everything is luscious and I just checked out your Etsy store — divine! My house is all seashells and roses and honey, if it weren't for the economy I would claim that runner and pillow as mine!

Hang in there, it will happen. I have a Zazzle store and can tell you that the majority of my sales now are from other countries. For some reason Australians love my stuff. But when I first opened my store I was nervous just like you. When I made my first sale you would've thought it was Christmas morning! Now I'm surprised when I don't sell something one day, the same will happen for you.

I've heard that Etsy sales are down, but I'm open one after I get settled in Georgia, so I'm sure I'll be coming to you for advice by then! said...

I love that burlap wreath! I collect vintage slips too, especially if they are black or cream. Love them. I hang them on my curtain rod in the bedroom & pretend I can fit into them! Lisa
PS email me please

Tracey said...

Jacqueline said...

Coming to your blog is such a romantic walk. I didn't know you had a booth. I have had many in my lifetime and loved every minute of it. I have a glass show case in a antique mall and I sell vintage childrens items, dolls, gnomes, books, fairies, you name it...I love it if it has a old childrens theme. I'll send pixie dust your way for good fortune in your etsy shop! Smiles to you my Queen.
