Found, created and gifts!

Hi Bloggerettes!  I've been working on this little side table found at the Habitat.  Gave it a couple of coats of a soft gray and shabbied it a little here and there.  I also found the european reproduction telephone at a yard sale and decided it was perfect for the little table.
Found this pink bed at auction.  I hope it sells soon, as you can see it takes up my entire booth!

Remember the Christmas cone decorations I made?  The picture is here on the left.

Well just look what Sharon at Sharon's Wannabe Cottage did!

She created some very sweet Christmas cone ornaments and I think they are so cute.  Don't you just love the vintage bedspring used as a holder.

If you haven't met Sharon, hop on over and introduce yourself.
She and her sister, Pam have a crafting business called "Sweetie Pies."  They have some of the cutest things for sale in their etsy shop.
Check it out for yourself and tell her Sissie sent you.  She's a sweetie.

Look at this wonderful bag I won from Lisa at Pickles and Cheese!
The laptop bag is from  They put my initials on it and the word blogger.  Pretty cute, um?  I should of had Sissie
put on it because that's my family name and my blogging family name but hey, I'm trying to be sophisticated here!  Thanks so much Lisa!  I love it.

Be sure and stop by Linda's blog to see the other wonderful finds and creations.

Hi, Sissie girl...I am lovin that beautiful lap top bag. Sooo cute.
Beautiful little table and the phone..omgosh, I love that.
I am looking for a french reproduction phone in great mom gave my daughter one when she was about 10. Over the years, I don't have a clue where it went but am thinking...garage sale..*shhh
Now, my daughter wants it..and I am beside myself. Well, I can't get that one back but I can give her one from me. That's bound to count, don't you think?:)
If you should run across one..please let me know. I'd appreciate it.
love, bj
