~FRENCH EPHEMERA PILLOWS~

 Today is an exciting day as my little booth space at Serendipity Market (Edmond, OK) is 99% ready to move in.  Just a couple pieces of wood flooring are left to install and then we can begin the task of filling her up with lots and lots of goodies!  Hand painted signs and furniture, pillows, sachets and sweet vintage finds and so much more....  I'm so happy I'll be settled in before Easter and Spring!  If you're like me you're already craving warmer weather and sunshine...
I've been a busy bee sewing and painting up a storm.  Such fun! 

I've finally made use of the vintage images I've collected while visiting the ever popular Karen at GF!!!.  I love, love, love how her graphics look when used on simple white cotton and linen pillows!  Nothing complicated here...petite ruffles combined with the old ephemera and feather inserts make for French themed pillows that are easy on the eye.
I love all of the old images, but my favorite one was used on the first pillow at the top!
I also snagged another mid-century maple dresser and recently painted it out in my favorite soft white paint.  This piece is almost exactly like one I sold last year that I painted pink.  Love this one in white...simple paint techniques, gentle distressing and a quick sealer help to make her home-ready!
I hope you all had a wonderful Valentine's Day!  I made Chicken Spaghetti for my family and then we all played UNO until almost midnight.  Guess who one?  NOT ME!

Hope your Saturday is wonderful!

Love to you...

Hi Rebecca, I haven't been able to visit my friends like I want, but I am spending the day at home instead of going to the nursing home. I am not feeling quite up to par and I don't want to take something to hubby. I just got him out of the hospital after a week. Your Pillows are so pretty and I loved your make-overs in the previous post. Your snow pictures are pretty. Have a wonderful weekend. Hugs and Prayers from your Missouri Friend.

All your pillows look wonderful, Rebecca! I don't think I could pick a favorite. : ) Wonderful that you are just about ready to move into your new space. Have you got ideas on how you are going to set things up? I would need to plan it out ahead of time myself otherwise I'd probably feel overwhelmed going in there with all my stuff.

The basket under here is also very pretty.

So nice to see you back in action after your hands taking that vacation. May I ask what you use to seal your furniture? Your projects always show the love and care you put into them.

My sweetie and daughter played Uno too. I listened to them laugh and treasured it.

Rebecca,

The pillows are luscious! I so wish I could visit your space...know it is to die for!

I thought of you when Ron ripped out the microwave and the wall behind it was pink! I had almost forgotten how our home used to be pink all over. Isn't life funny and the odd stages we ALL go through.

Purchased our new appliances today.....gracious...when did refrigerators cost that much???!!! So worn out and so excited.

Sending you love,
B
