Fluffin up the Booth!

Hi Bloggerettes!  I don't know where all my new found energy is coming from, but I've been up to my eyeballs in projects and paint and feeling kinda tireless.  Better take advantage of it because I'll probably crash before long!
It all started when I decided that the wall in my Miss Minnies booth was looking rather dull.  It had been painted pink a few years ago.  It was now full of nail holes and looking dull.  So, I got a wild hair and stared painting it chantilly lace white.  A few hours later and very sore knees, I'm standing back and admiring my handy work.
 I found this very girlie and very pretty ballerina tutu at the thrift store.  Had to have it!
This week's theme is a kinda shabby, girlie look.

Check out this lovely crocheted cover draped over the back of the chair.  It's so pretty. 

Check out this cute pillow that I bought from Old Tyme Marketplace's etsy shop.

I just finished this french image pillow.  The image is from Graphics Fairy!

Okay, that's enough for now.  I'm headin out to the garage to work on some projects I grabbed at the auction last night.
I'll show them to you later.

Stay cool!


So very sweet.  I love this little pillow.

Sissie, oh, my! What an elegant & warm shop & all those darling treasures. The crocheted is fab. I love crocheted items. Your shop is really enticing, my friend. So ooo-la-la chic & romantic.

Hi Sissie Sweetie...
It looks like you are not only fluffin but you are also fillin up that shop. I love the chair with the little cover. So elegant. That pillow just stole my heart. (Yep you know me and my pillows.)

Love the tutu. I would have grabbed that up as well. It is so pretty. Love the splashes of pink. A girl can never have to much pink.

Thank you for sharing sweet friend. I love stopping by. Have been having computer problems and still no dashboard or google reader. I have to scroll back through my posts to find my friends. Have a gorgeous evening. Many hugs and much love, Sherry

A couple of weeks ago I was full of energy and painting and fixing and taking pictures and now it has kind of faded.

Amy @MaisonDecor said...

I love those energy runs I get...then I crash for a few until I reload. Your pillows are the best~loved the new one with the graphics on it you made. I have never figured that out. the shabby ruffled chic pillows piled on the chair look so pretty. I never run into prom dresses or tutus! Must be a southern item!

Your booth is so beautiful Sissie!! :)

I was wondering what technique you used to make your pillow with the graphic from Graphics Fairy? I'm wanting to do a couple benches and have read about a couple options (printing on the fabric, Citra Solv) but yours looks so fantastic and clean, I'd like to use your technique.

Grandma Yellow Hair said...

So glad you showed us your updates on your booth. I always love seeing what you have been doing.
Your booth has to be the prettest one in the whole place.
I am thinking about turning one of these houses out here into a shop with vendors. Would love to live close to you where you could have a space here if I did it.

Hey Miss Sissie,
Did you think I disappeared? Maybe the kids tied me up & locked me in a closet? LOL I've been laying on the couch doing nothing but trying to stay cool! This heat is draining!
I just caught up with your posts & as always your busy creating loveliness all around. I love the changes to your space at the mall. The Chantilly lace paint is awesome. Need to remember that name. Love the images on those newer pictures, lamb &! What a score with the Shabby Chic pillows. Hope your staying cool girl!
