Lots of unfinished projects!

Hi Bloggerettes!  I've been up to my ears in projects and paint!
I've been trying to get my booth filled up with lots of goodies for the beach vacationers and visitors.  Miss Minnies and Fancy Flea both get  really busy during the summer months, so it's work, work, work!

This project isn't finished, so I'll just give you a little sneak peek....

 This long table is in my dining room.  I've never liked it with the wood tone.  So, it's getting the chantilly lace treatment!

Got this little table at auction and added the chandelier stencil.

 My birthday was Thursday, May 12.  Mr. Sissie gave me this pretty bouquet of flowers.  I love how they look in the vintage enamel pitcher.

I also received this beautiful white rosette pillow from my friend Peggie.  She took me to breakfast for my birthday and we had a great time just chatting and laughing....there is nothing like having a wonderful girlfriend! 

Found this great metal crown at Tuesday mornings.  Looks good with my silver touches in my livingroom.
 Silver touches and a bit of garden rust....
Pay no attention to the wireless router!!!

First hydrangea bloom of the year.  I love having them all over the house.

Okay, that's it.  I'll show you the completed projects later.  Be sure and get out there and make, create, paint, sew, repurpose, write, or find something wonderful and share it with the rest of us!



I'm linking with Coastal Charm's Nifty Thrifty Tuesdays!!!  Be sure and stop over there for some pretty stuff.

I love the chandelier stencil! Where'd you find it? And the crown it so neat. I never see anything like that in Tuesday Morning. But I don't go that often, either. We don't have one locally and it's not usually a convenient visit for me. And one last thing. I did not see the router until you mentioned it. Had to go back and look. That doesn't even look like a router! Ours looks like one and absolutely would not be sitting out in plain sight. LOL Love the whole silver display.

Happy belated birthday, Sissie! I'm glad you had a great day! So funny about your black three tiered table: I have the exact same one, well, two of them. But I painted ours Heirloom White (of course!). So it looks like we have the same great taste:) Oh, I am love, love, loving all of the gorgeous pink pillows on your new header!!!

Oh Sissie, I missed your birthday. Sounds like you had a lovely day with your girlfriend, and the pillow she gave you is gorgeous.

trash talk said...

You know it's stinky ol' blogger's fault I missed your birthday...right? I've got one coming up this 39th as a matter of fact. You just turned 39 too...right? I thought so...great minds think alike.
Oh goodness, my heart and soul...that tablescape and mirrors is gorgeous!
P.S. Happy Birthday...just a few days late.

Karen said...

Well Happy Belated Birthday sister May Birthday Girl! I love having a May birthday! It's just one of the prettiest months of the year!
And I am loving all of your wonderful things. Your mirrors over the mantle are kind of like what I want to do going up my stairs. Love that.
You are so brave to just take a perfectly good table and pour on the white! And Mr. Sissy is a very nice man - my guy would probably kill me!
:) Have a great week! Karen

Passionate for White said...

Is there nothing you can't turn into something beautiful!? Oh....and can you tell me more about that wireless router? tee hee :)

Happy belated birthday wishes. I too love the flowers in the white pitcher. Hope your week is going wonderfully!

Denise said...

WOW!! You have been busy. Do you ever get sick of the mess being in your house? I sure do. Sometimes I wish I could just stop it all and sit in a clean house for a change. Sigh....instead I just keep getting pulled in deeper and deeper. Oh well! LOVE the pic. of the pink and white bed in your header, by the way. Smiles! :)

Tarnished and Tattered said...

Happy Late Birthday Sissie!

Cindy said...

Fun post Sissy... and... HAPPY BIRTHDAY! I love your new header photo montage too, it's so pretty! And, the crown is cool, i'm definitely going to check my TJ Maxx for that one! Your table with all the mirrors is beautiful, I didn't even "see" the wireless router.

Stephanie ~ Angelic Accents said...

OOoh, how pretty that top piece is gonna be ~ I love anything with fleur de lis or chandys stenciled on it!! Is that long table the one you are standing next to in your sidebar pic? I bet you will enjoy it being white! I need to own stock in Heirloom White paint myself! Hope you had a wonderful birthday!!

Your wall of mirrors always makes me drool and now I'm also coveting that pretty silvered lamp!!

Big TX Hugs,
Angelic Accents

Jane said...

Happy Belated Birthday!!
You have been one busy lady! Those pieces will sell in a heartbeat!!

Sares said...

See I'm not the only one who finds treasures for myself while out hunting for the booths! Love that crown. I have a similar chandy stencil. I never thought to use it on furniture, I'll have to try it, it looks great on the armoire and table.
Your new pillow is a beauty too, just what we all need is another pillow!

Karen- The Graphics Fairy said...

Oh my it all looks fabulous!! Love the doors on that wardrobe!! I thought you might like to know that I've been bragging about your French pillow again, over on my new site! You can see it Here!

bj said...

First off...your header is just AWESOME...Love it. Now, I have to go work on MINE. :)

I love all these pieces you are working on. I just bought a piece yesterday, thrifting, and will be working on it this week.
I am in love with that new pillow..:)

Dragonfly Treasure said...

Happy Birthday!! Mine was may 10th LOL
I adore your header! Such pretties. Your mirrors are so fab! I didn't even notice the router until you said something! LOL Love the rusty glass conservatory? So cool.

I won't be surprised if Obama gives Fonda the award either :(

Have a great day!

Diane said...

Sissie, such pretty things! Always! Girlfriend, how ever do you keep your hands and nails looking good with all of those paint cans you are always getting into! ;-) I don't know anyone who paints as much furniture as you do! And...makes it look so great! Your booth is sure to have stuff flyin' out the door this summer!
Hugs, Diane

Hartwood Roses said...

Sissie, sweetie, I had a little table exactly like your little blue table! It was available by mail order in the 1980s, and it came flat-packed in an impossibly small box. I remember having to screw all the pieces together, and being very proud to get it together correctly on the first try. I love that you painted it blue!

Mary said...

New to your beautiful blog! ♥ the "Chantilly Lace" wood look! I have a chair that I would like to have that look. How can I accomplish that? Thanks, and Happy Belated Birthday!
