Gratitude and a little blog break.

Hi wonderful bloggers......just want you to know that I adore each and everyone of you.  I can't imagine life without you.  You are the best!!!!

Now, having said that I must ask your patience while I take a little blog break.  I've been so busy with my booth....hunting for stuff, painting and repurposing.  I need some time to concentrate on the projects at hand.  I promise to be back soon and in the meantime will be visiting you.

But, before I go I want to show you this darling vintage mirror that was probably once attached to a dresser.  I gave it a pretty blue green color...

Found this cuuuuute nightstand (created by cutting a vanity table in half).  I didn't have to do a thing to it.  It was already hand painted and ready for someone to love...

The large table you see here is a ladies bridge table.
There are little grooves on each corner to hold a tea cup and saucer or a glass...

Fortunate for me and for the shop....things have been flying out the door.    So, I'm off this week to find more stuff.
I'll be back soon.  In the meantime get out there and create, make, sew, photograph, write, cook, bake and find something wonderful and share it with us.

Have a nice break Sissie! I've been doing a bit of the same lately... less blogging and more time in between posts. It must be the season! Loved seeing all your pretty pictures.

I adore both but really love the table.

Maureen said...

Oh Sissie - I completely understand. The painted furniture is flying out the door and I'm trying to keep up 3 spaces. My posting has become rather erratic but..... 'See' you soon!

Cindy said...

I see why things are flying out of your booth, it's soooooo enticing! The paint on that mirror is the most perfect color ever! And i love love the bridge table. It's hard to do all that you're doing and keep up regular blog posts, i don't know how you and alot of my other favorite ladies do it!!!


Amy @MaisonDecor said...

I love that blue looks so pretty and I see you have more blue in the store. I love the blue and the pink with all the whites....I have my camera in my shop and my blogging is on a different schedule now as I have to do it when I get to the shop, cuz the camera works with the shop computer, so my blogs are slower too...I have to get on top of it!

Shelia said...

Hi Sissieness! Oh, I'm going to miss you but I do understand. You just go out and find some fabulous things and put your wonderful spin on them. Take pictures! Good luck with you shop.
Be a sweetie,
shelia ;)

Isn't that just the BEST? I've done the antique mall circuit before and have had some pretty slow happy to hear that things are just flying out the door. Wooooppeee!

Loved the little side table. So darn sweet. And, in Bloggyville I recently saw a mirror very similar to yours......the attached a shelf to the bottom and it was the cutest darn thing EVAH.. I'm looking for one for my veryownself. Wish you were closer!

Rebecca said...

Thinking of you sweets! In two weeks I go to my sister's house in Tennessee. I'll be gone for a while and I'm looking forward to a blogging break too!

I need a break from my breaks! :)


trash talk said...

It's so hard to try and do it all isn't it? I don't know how you manage to do what you do, so taking a break makes perfect sense to me.
BTW...I adore the legs on the bridge table.

Sonya@Beyond the Screen Door said...
