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.

Good morning Pat,
How beautiful your blog looks!

I am so happy to have met you yesterday at one of my favorite antique malls.

The dress form looks delightful displayed in your home. I look forward to viewing the lovely things you create.

I have seen Lorie's web site before but we lost contact when I had family members that were ill.

Enjoy your blog and may you have great success!
Winter blessings,
