Finding and Making Stuff!

Hi Bloggerettes!  I've got a few more finds to show you.  Wanna see?
I thought so.
Check out this lovely tray display in the booth.  Added a pretty vintage mirror and a tiara, for a princess....
This pedestal table got a coat of paint and a little shabbing up!

I did find time this weekend to make a pillow.  A burlap pillow with some vintage crocheted lace....ooh la la!
What can be better than Paris, burlap and lace?
I found this Eiffel tower framed print and grabbed it right up!

This is Ellie.  She is a paper mache rabbit that I bought years and years ago.  She started out as a "he,"named Elmer. He used to wear  a golf outfit.  Now Elmer is a girl named Ellie  because all we had to put on her was a pink outfit!  Elmer says he's okay with it.

Okay, get out there and create, make, sew, paint, write or repurpose something wonderful and share it with us.

Yes that is one sweet pillow girlfriend. Laughed at the big bunny girl rabbit. How come you didn't paint her white???

Love the burlap pillow with the vintage lace. So girly. I adore the rabbit. I think Elmer looks good as an Ellie.
Daffodils are blooming so I know it's spring here in least for the time being.
Happy Spring,

You're one amazing woman, Sissie. I don't think women half your age could keep up with you without really struggling.

HI Sissie,
You have been a busy bee! I love your pillow and the table turned out "great" painted white. I have been thinking of painting my kitchen table and chairs..
