Keepin Bizzy!

Hi Bloggerettes!
I've finished several projects and have loaded up my booths.
Would you like to take a look.....

Trying to fill up two booths takes lots of effort and enthusiasm.  First I have to find the pieces, then paint them and in between doing this I am making pillows and other pieces to sell.  I've also been making pillows to put in my new space at Talefeathers.  I'll be telling you a little more about this new shop soon.  It's going to be an exciting venture and you are going to love the shop.

I made this corn husk wreath just for fun.  It turned out pretty cute, don't ya think?

Now, I'm not complaining, just sayin....

I spied this sweet little wooden vanity bench at a yard sale.
It was a maple color but nothin the old paint brush can't fix!

Peggie brought in these cute bar stools.

I added a few new pillows to my growing stash....

This one is made from a European textile that I found in a military supply shop.  It has an amazing feel and patina.

I painted a cute little chair, recovered the seat and paired it with the pink, puffy vanity table....

My lovely mannequin is making her debut at Miss Minnie's.
She looks so lovely positioned front and center stage!

Well, my sweet Bloggerettes, I'm off to do a little blog hopping.
Tomorrow it's back to work, which really is more like play....I love it and I love all of you!!!

Speaking of love.  I want to introduce you to a new blogger, Shabby Jen

I'm tellin y'all, your gonna love her southern charm.  She's got so much enthusiasm and creativeness that it's contagious.

How about stopping by to see her and show her some bloggy love.  She's having a give away too.

Your booths are beautiful and your creativity amazing! I read below that you have blogger's block, but you certainly to not have creative block. The wreath above is fabulous, your manniquin looks like she is wearing a French couture dress and the pillow are wonderful! How I wish my creative juices would flow like yours!

I will be visiting Jen. Thanks for the introduction!

Thank you so much for joinging Potpourri Friday. I appreciate you, Sissie, and hope you will make this party a weekly stop!
