Blogging Buds Never Dissappoint!

Hello all you creative ones!  My goodness but you never dissappoint.  I love it when a question is asked and you all give the best answers.   Ain't blogging wonderful!

Just about everyone agreed that I should use the toile panels by themselves, so I did just that.....

Ya'll are so good.

Sometimes we just have to blog about it to get it right!

Thought I'd show you a few pics of my booth.
I love this shabby, chippy terraium/atrium thingy....

While I'm rambling I might as well show you this wall in my bedroom.  I'm trying to create a vintage kind of wall gallery and I'm not sure how it's going to work out.  Keeping the frames dark instead of painting them white, is a new thing for me.
Not sure if it will stay or go.  I'll show you the entire
section once I've put it together.
Okee dokee....movin along here.  I bought this mirror from another dealer.  It's made of metal....yes metal !  I'm opting for a small section in my booth highlighting some industrial chic and this is perfect.
This is before I painted it with oil rubbed bronze. 

As you can see it's got lots of rust and scratches.
I like a little touch of rust, but not the scratches

So here it is with the oil rubbed bronze paint job.
I'm lovin all the curves and curls.

One more thing before I go.  I made homemade biscuits for dinner on Sunday.  Fried Chicken, asparagus and macaroni and cheese.
Mind you it is rare that I do a complete homemade dinner.
My family thought something was wrong with me!

Izz wish Mommie made me cheezeburger....

See you Sweetie Pies later.


I'm joining the party at Primp Your Stuff Wednesdays!

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

They look great, Sissie! I love that fabric! Wonderful terrarium/conservatory. I have decided to add some Old White to the one I found a few weeks ago to get a look similar to yours and the PB one I showed in my post. Probably a little bit of dark wax, too. Great mirror ~ love that shape!

Rebecca said...

LOVE THE TOILE! It rules!!!!!

Now...I'll have you know I use to love to cook. Now that I finished losing my weight on WWatchers I'm afraid to resume kitchen duties. Bah! I was/am a 'taster' and so I'm SKERD I'll regain all my weight if I start cooking again! Good thing my kitchen is torn up. Good excuse to eat light. Have to hand wash dishes! ARGH!

Love the curtains, the booth and the fabulous meal, the mirror is also stunning. You are really on a roll. I think the picture collage is looking good. Hugs, Marty

Nancy said...

Hi Sissie girl,

I typically feel a woman can't do it all...except for you! With being creative, cooking, etc. you make the rest of us look bad! LOL!

You have a great day tomorrow. I'm working on getting moved in. I'm actually commenting from the new house. Internet here is lightning fast! Yay!

Wsprsweetly Of Cottages said...

My goodness, Sissie, but you are a busy gal. It's that time of year, isn't it. I love the look and how it came together with just the one curtain. Lovely. :) But then I KNEW it would be!
That booth of yours..I just thank heavens I live SO far away..I am NOT at all strong when it comes to the kind of things you sell. Nope. Not strong at all!!

Debbie said...

Good grief, Sissie!! not only can you decorate like a queen, but you also cook!!! You are amazing, girl!!!!

Shannon@Cozy Home Scenes said...

Sissie, I just love dropping by to see what lovely thing you have done next! I knew you were a wonderful decorater and fixer-upper, but I didn't realize you are good cook, too. Those biscuits look delicious and your menu sounds great. I guess you are not just a pretty face, after all. (that's a real compliment)-------- Shannon

Karen Harper said...

Love those toile curtains Sissie and everything in your booth. Your dinner sounds like Sunday dinner at moms... brings back great memories!

gloria g. said...

Wow. Love all your goodies.....but I have to ask, what recipe did you use on those biscuits? I am a biscuit making fool, and they are beautiful! Look like they tasted great. Anyway, love that chair with the painted seat and back as well......thanks for sharing.

happy in quilting, gloria g. Hemingway, SC
