~VINTAGE LACE CHRISTMAS STOCKINGS~
This week's studio work had me focusing on making vintage French Lace Christmas Stockings! I try and begin this kind of work in the summer (despite the horrific 105 heat here in Oklahoma!) because if I don't start EARLY I never catch up! I wanted to show them for White Wednesday...not sure I can still link to it, but I'm going to try!
~LOVING THE VINTAGE RIBBON~
~LOTS OF OLD LACES and BUTTONS~
A few days ago after tending to my booth at Edmond Antiques (Edmond, OK) I stopped off at one of our local thrift stores and found another great dresser!
After cleaning it up and removing the old hardware I painted it up in a soft creamy pink! Today I'm finishing the hand painted roses on the drawers and loving how it's coming out!
The one I found a couple of weeks ago has SOLD and so I was hoping to find another and was so excited to snag this one for a great price! It's sturdy and strong and great for nursery or guest room! Hope to have it in my booth early next week... I'll share more photos soon!
While painting the dresser I also took the time to base paint some new things for my website. This weekend I'll be painting them with roses as well. This lot is PINK and I'm even hoping to finish that Train Case you see in the back... I've so missed my work since the Carpel Tunnel/Tendonitis flare up! I'm much better now and the resting of my hands and arms has done wonders!
Still uploading my programs to my new Lap Top Computer! So exciting to have a new toy and a computer that WORKS!
Hope your day is wonderful...
Love to you...
