~FRENCH LACE STOCKINGS WHITE WEDNESDAY~

 ~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...

Gorgeous, scrumptious, delicious, hmmm. Those are the only words I can think of right now. The other ones that I'm making up in my mind sound ridiculous! In other words, the stockings are OK. See my first choices sound ever so much better!♥♫

Those stockings are gorgeous, Rebecca! I'm hoping to make a few myself this year. Probably not as fancy, because I'm going to make them for my son and his roommates. : ) Love your finds, too. I like to paint a bunch of things at the same time once I've got the paintbrush dipped, too.

Oh- I missed your previous post so I want you to know that I am so sorry you computer died. NOT good...at least you were able to save your files.

I love your stockings and I am so glad that you are healing and able to paint again. Don't you HATE base coating though? My worst job ever when I used to paint!!!! xo Diana

Dearest Rebecca,

Ah, you are for 100% back in your elements! Feeling great, I read between the lines... You got some wonderful items in the making and all the lace for those romantic stockings look like a dream.
Enjoy it and I'm so happy for your hands and arms!!!
Love,
Mariette

Beautiful stockings! You do such lovely work Rebecca.

I can't wait to see the dresser when it is done. Next time I am in Edmond I would love to see your booth. (And gosh, it would be wonderful if you were in it and I could meet you!) (:>)

I have a friend who lives in Edmond, and we need to visit her one of these days when the weather cools down!

I am so glad that your pain is less and that you are doing better my friend.

Love, Linda @ Truthful Tidbits

Your energy level amazes me..I've a ton of painting to do, but so much humidity and heat here it is impossible. Have fun enjoy the weekend.
