When you don't see me listing new things on my A Gathering Place Website it's because I've taken special orders and those always keep me busy! I'm always grateful for the sure-to-get biz and these days I don't hesitate to push custom orders to the top of the line!
I finished the makeover on this sweet vintage Train Case (Gathering Case) late last week and today it's being shipped to it's new owner. I've lost count how many Case transformations I've made over the past twenty years...I can almost do them in my sleep now.
The pink rose fabric used for the interior continues to be one of the most popular prints chosen! This Case has a soft pink ground with hand painted pink roses! Vintage lace trim, old ribbon and a bit a bling help to make it a keeper. Hope the new owner loves it (thank you, G!).
Over the weekend I finished up a huge batch of Christmas Ornaments for my online shop and Etsy and eBay! Hope to have them on sometime this evening...maybe in the morning. Sugared with glitter I'm loving how the vintage images shine!
They started out just blocks of wood! After a bit of work they turned out like this:
I don't have them photographed yet, but tomorrow I'll show you the ones made using soft white paint and vintage French images and graphics. Soooo fun!
Hope your Monday is great! Today is my mother's 78th birthday! My daughter, Adrienne, and I are taking her to lunch at Mimi's so I have to scoot!
Love to you...
