Stuff for the booth...

Not much new going on that's blogworthy.  We are closing on the sale of our house this week and have already met with the builders to begin construction of our new home.  So for now we are living in temporary quarters, so not much to show here

 Most of what I do these days is find and create stuff for my booths, so I feel my poor blog has suffered.

Today I dressed up the mannequin with some rosettes and set up a little Mother's Day display...
 Photos aren't too great because I took them with my cell phone.

This little stool got a dose of my favorite toile fabric...
 I found this adorable little night lite that looks like it might be from the early 60's.  Underneath the cloche is the perfect place to give it some prominence...
Everyone have a good week and get out there and create, make, bake, photograph, write, craft....whatever your passion.
And, find something wonderful and share it with us.
I'm joining the party at Coastal Charm's Nifty Thrifty Tuesdays!

Good luck on your closing. I'm sure your new home is going to be wonderful, and look forward to all the photos when you're ready to move in!

Your project photos are great, too. So "You"!

Hi Sissie. You dressed her up beautiful.
Are you going to build a new house?

Hugs from me

You must be very busy, Sissie...I would love to have a home designed just as I wanted, what a dream come true!

Your mannequin looks gorgeous, you must have more lace than anyone I know, love it! And the little bench is beautiful! It's always fun to see what you are up to!

Love your stool, Sissie! I wish they weren't so stringent here on upholstered items. I'm glad you are keeping busy with your booths. Congrats on the sale of your house!

I always love to see the photos of your booths Sissie! and I ALWAYS see something that would look awesome in my own house :) I am so excited that the sale of your house is going good and that soon you will be able to start on your new house!!!
I want you to know how much your sweet message meant to me. I read it this morning and it just instantly gave me the lift I needed...thank you so much for it.

I loved that sweet little table in your previous post that you found at the new shop. What a beautiful piece it is!!! The color sent me into ooohs and aaahs.
many hugs from here...

What a sweet night light! Looks so pretty under the cloche. Bet someone grabs that pretty quickly!

Your foot stool looks so beautiful with that toile-dear Sissie, and your mannequin looks amazing dressed up so lovely. Wonderful for you to close the sale of your house-and start the construction on the new one..Good luck with that,dear.

SO glad you house sold! Ours just went back on the market and we are at least getting some activity. I am so ready to head south!

Off to read more of your Blog to see what you have been up to!

Hi, I enjoyed your post. This sounds like an exciting time for you. Enjoy the journey...Connie

trash talk said...

I don't know how you can think of anything else (much less create) with dreams of your new home crowding your mind!
Psst...that's one of my favorite toile patterns as well. I have it all over our den. Doesn't it remind you of faded wallpaper?
