Just more stuff.....

Thanks for all your wonderful comments about my recent finds.  I'm happy to say that most of the items have already sold!

I'm happy when things sell but it also means back to the drawing board.....
Or, back to the sewing machine....
 I never, never ever change my mantel.  It stays the same year round with just the mercury glass candle holders and the Venetian mirror.
But, when I added this little topiary I like the way it looked. So, I guess it will stay for awhile.

 I found this vintage primitive cabinet, painted it a creamy white
and plopped it down in my booth.
 Isn't this little vintage cabinet just the cutest thing evah!!! Got it from another dealer, painted it with ASCP and now it's oh so cute....
A few followers have asked if they can use my sign idea and design and I say, yes, of course!!

Okay that's it for now so remember to get out there this week and create, make, sew, photograph, write, paint, repurpose and find something wonderful and share it with us!

The topiary looks very nice on your mantle.
I love all of the pretty things you found while shopping with your sister. They look wonderful in your booth, and also in your home, Sissie!

Love your mantle. I think the pop of green on there looks spectacular. Very nice. Your little make-overs are adorable, too!

What a good person you are to let others "copy" you- and, as you know, that is the sincerest form of flattery- xo Diana

Oh if I could get to that little cabinet with those lovely little legs it would have to come and live with me. It is so pretty Sissie.
I LOVE all of the beautiful things you do.

How beautiful. Love the cabinets and that pillow is gorgeous, gorgeous.

I'm glad to hear all your things sold, Sissie, although that means more work for you! : ) Love the pillows and that bust is neat, too. I'm glad to hear that I am not the only one that keeps her mantel the same. If I like the way it looks, why change it up constantly? It will change a little for Fall with some pumpkins added in and then I'll probably take it all down and do something once Christmas comes.

Your pillow is divine and I'm loving the topiary addition to your mantel!
