Some finished projects

Hi Bloggerettes!  I've got a few finds to show you and some finished projects. 

Remember these?  I wore one to my high school senior prom....which was well, a few years ago!  So, when I saw this one for sale, I had to have it.  Looks good displayed with my vintage prom dress and decorating the guest bedroom wall....yes?

I found this little table, cute but all dark and covered with marks and scratches.  It was in bad need of some love, so I gave it
some pale pink paint....
I love the shape.

I also found this little side chair, which was also in need of some love.  I gave it a new seat and some pink paint.....instant pretty!

I hope everyone has a wonderful week.  So be sure to create, write, photograph, cook or paint something wonderful. 

I also want to thank my new followers.  I hope to get around to seeing each and everyone of you soon.  Also stayed tuned for my next 1000 Followers Countdown Giveaway.

There's nothing that a little paint can't fix! Wonderful transformations as usual, Sissie! Happy Valentine's Day!

The Polka Dot Closet said...

Sissie, I had a wrap almost identical to that, but the balls were on the end of ribbon and when you tied it up it looked like yours. I love the mirrors on the wall

Hi Sissie,
Such a cute little wrap! It looks wonderful with the prom dress.
The table and the chair look great. I love the pink!

Annie Joy said...

How beautiful, Sissie! The wrap does take me back, too, I can almost feel that soft bunny fur. Do you remember mouton? I wanted one, but missed out on it. The wrap looks much more romantic, doesn't it? I love your creative touch! Annie

You can never go wrong with a pale pink. So pretty!

Amy @MaisonDecor said...

How pretty that guest room is. I told you I would love to see you do a post on the whole room! This is the same room with the rug, right? I think the prom dress with the fur wrap is fabulous! You might need a pearl choker hanging from that hanger too! The ballet pink looks pretty on your new finds. Happy Valentines Day to a fellow romantic!

Linda@Coastal Charm said...

Such a pretty wrap. Happy Valentine's day Sissie!!!


Linda said...

Happy Valentine's Day Little Sissie,
How I love the prom stole. I remember those.
I love the chair and table as well. Where in the world do you get all your energy? Would you please bottle some and send it my way.
Seriously, I love everything you do. We really should live next to each other or at least in the same town because we really are 2 peas in a pod. Well, you have a happy valentine's day with your loved ones.

Linda @ A La Carte said...

Sissie I love the little wrap! How sweet in that room. I am really loving that color of pink on those painted pieces of furniture. You always do such a great job. Happy Day! ~~Linda

Hi Sissie, I love the vintage prom dress and stole display, so lovely. You did a great job giving that table and chair some pink loving, they look so pretty. I hope you had a nice Valentine's Day.

Irma@CosasBellas said...

OMGosh Sissie, you must have looked adorable in that little rap. I love the collection of vintage hand mirrors displayed on the wall. I have been collecting some of my own, just haven't gotten around to finding a pretty place for them. Your table and chair are so sweet, so perfect.


Crystal Rose Cottage said...

It doesn't seem that long ago that we wore stole's like that does it? Your cape looks so pretty...great shape too! Love the pink table vignette, of course I love pink in general which makes my granddaughters very happy! Hope you had a love filled day for Valentine's Day!~Hugs, Patti

Kim @ Cheap Chic Home said...

Hi Sissie, you certainly have a golden touch (or would that be a pink-en touch?). Your vintage finds look gorgeous!

Rebecca said...

Hey sweet you be?

I missed getting by the last couple of days and so I want to wish you a belated Happy Valentine's Day. Is there such a thing? I celebrate Valentine's Day all month long! :)

Love your pretties and the makeover table is right up my street. But then I'm SURE youda-know-dat! :)

Sandi@ Rose Chintz Cottage said...

What a sweet transformation! That is the perfect shade of pink and the chair is adorable! The little table is too cute! I'd love to go thrifting with you! Thanks for sharing and have a marvellous day, Sissie!

Blessings and hugs,

Sandi@ Rose Chintz Cottage said...

Oh, I forgot to mention how much I loved the stole! Didn't you feel like a princess wearing one of those! Love the frock too, but I've told you that before, haven't I? Hope you had a wonderful Valentines Day celebration too!

Cindy Adkins said...

Wow, this post is pure heaven, Sissie!!! Your blog totally amazes me!!!

" SHABBY JUNK" said...

Sissie, Love the fur stole. I have not seen one since I played with Barbie as a child. Looks great with the prom dress! judy

Pam @ Frippery said...

A perfect shade of pink!

Blessedmom's Simple Home said...

Those wraps were popular when I was a little girl. My friend had one, and I can still picture her wearing it :-)

Tarnished and Tattered said...

I've been so busy with kid problems this winter that I don't get to visit as much as I'd like. But looking over your posts I about dropped dead when I saw your fluffy white wrap! Lily just attended her first father/daughter valentine dance & that is the dress & wrap I was looking for. I did end up finding a little black stole for her big night. Love your dress too. How cute that your style has remained consistent! You could wear that tonight, out to dinner. Do you remember Gunne Sax? Well I 'HAD' to have one for my prom. They were way too expensive tho so luckily my Mother was a master seamstress & made a beautiful knock off. Your sweet gown reminds me of that one.
PS Is it hanging in the guest room? The room I'll stay in? LOL
