Something New

This little jar has been taking some of my time here lately. I found this jar at a flea market and knew exactly what I wanted to do with it. I made the roses and leaves out of clay. Primmed and painted the lid and then painted the roses and leaves. Then I made the beaded front. It also has one pink crystal in the center. I think this would be so lovely on a dressing table or dresser. When the lid is closed it will be air tight. The jar was made in France. I will be listing it on Tattered Elegance & Close Creations tomorrow.

Now for some lace~

Here is some beautiful bridal lace that I found at a garage sale. It will be great to use with your crafting. I will try to list this on My Ebay tomorrow. Two of them are 2yards and two are 3yards. I think they will dye well too.

Hope you enjoyed my things. I have to try to get some pottery painted tomorrow. I am repairing some Weller, Roseville, and Hull right now. And I need to get it finished.

Wish you all a wonderful day.

Getting Back to Blogging

Wanted to show you my last roses of the season. I love these beautiful pink roses right outside my kitchen window. They are always so beautiful in the spring and late fall. They love that cool weather.

I have been away for a while, but hopefully I will be blogging often now and putting things on my Etsy and Tattered Elegance & Close Creations. I have both listed on my Selling Spots. I'm taking pictures tomorrow so maybe I'll have some on Monday.

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday!

A Few of My Treasures

I have been going through things trying to get kind of organized, which is usually hard for me. While I was working I thought I would take a few pictures and let you see some of my treasures. First off I've had this maniquin for several years, but a few months ago I found this wedding dress at a church yard sale. It had a few spots, but I was lucky and got them out. I put the maniquin on a flower stand that I had shabby chic'd and then added the dress. Then I added the pearls. I think she is beautiful.

The pictures now are of things that I have painted, some that I just collect, the large pink lamp I bought at a thrift store. It had some of the leaves broke and missing, I also do pottery restoration, so I mended it. The pink ribbon rose on the other lamp shade is one I made. I love to do ribbon roses and silk ribbon embroidery. I hope you enjoy my treasures.

I would like to thank you for stopping by to have a look. I'll try to get some more things listed on my etsy. I have met so many nice people in blogland and I hope to meet so many more. Hope you have a wonderful blessed day.

Here are the pictures

Well Kent showed me how to do this so now you can see my Paul DeLongpre prints. I hope you like them too. I still have to pinch myself to see if they are real.

I am learning something almost every day. So just stay with me for a while. Thank you everyone for giving me so much encouragement. Wishing everyone lots of love.

Pictures will come, but not today

Hi everyone~ Well I promised my Paul DeLongpre pictures and I tried, but it didn't happen. But I will get them there. My son, Kent helped me get the other one, so maybe tomorrow he will show me again and I will write everything down...

But I wanted to let you know I received all your wonderful comments. They were all so nice. And I will answer all of them in the next few days.

I did list three things on ebay. Hope you will go take a look. It is mytatteredelegance under My Selling Spots. So nice talking to all of you. And I promise I will get better at this.

Trying to get my blog to going.

Well here I am again. And I'v learned to do a few things with this blog, thanks to Dawn. She is a doll and so smart. I couldn't be this far along if it wasn't for her. Thanks again dear friend.

Tomorrow I will list some things on my ebay site. I am planning to get on Etsy next week. The name of my Etsy will be Imagine Roses.

Last weekend I went to some garage and estate sales. I'll show some pictures on my next blog. I found a large framed antique print of roses by Paul De Longpre. I put it on my living room wall. Never thought I would be able to afford an antique print. I bought it from a Mrs. Starnes in Arlington. It belonged to her mother. It was a wonderful find. God really bless me that day.

Thanks for stopping by and best wishes to you.

Sept. 28, 2008 My first blog

Today is my very first blog. I have been reading a lot of blogs out there from all of you talented artists and I wanted to meet you. My name is Pat and I love to craft. I have been doing all kinds of crafts for years. Think I started at about age ten or twelve and made ties to go around your neck. They had velvet ribbon cords attatched to cork balls and then we put sequins and bead on to give them that bling. Now the bling is back only going on all kinds of things.

A few years ago I was doing a lot of ribbon embroidery, making crazy patch vest and all kinds of pretty things. I started sewing in the ninth grade and did that for years. Made all my clothes and a lot for my children. Now I only do that to decorate in the house. Like pillows, curtains and maybe a tablecloth.

I like to remake jewelery out of vintage beads. Also like to make Christmas ornaments and use vintage jewelery. But my real love is painting roses. I like to paint on most anything. Bring castoffs back to life. I have been selling some of my painted things on Ebay for the past few years. I also like to sell at the antique flea markets.

Thank you for stopping by and meeting me. I want to become great friends with all of you.



I wish all of you LOVE!
