Here we are at Trade Day. Charlene, JoAnn and I all shared our booth. Had so much fun. We all got to visit with a lot of friends and made a lot of new friends. The day couldn't have been more perfect. Here is a glimpse of our booth.

Most of you have seen the pictures of all of us, so I just showed the booth. Hope you enjoyed!

Isn't this the cutest tea pot. Now if I can just find the time to put the final touches to it. Hope you come out to The Collected Treasures TRADE DAY next Sat. We are all going to have lots of fun looking at each others treasures, visiting with friends, buying, selling. Just an all around good day, and the weather is suppose to be perfect!! I'm still talking to GOD on that one. But I know he is going to bless us with the perfect day!!!

Now all you girls get some rest and have a great day tomorrow.

This is the before picture of the chest. It is kind of a robin egg blue. So I sanded and got it ready for paint. I painted it yesterday and the results are farther down the page. The other things in the photo is a pink iron chair, but I am going to take it as is. And the corner of the shelf that is in the picture I painted it black today along with some large frames. I will distress and wax them all tomorrow. Sorry the first pic is so light. I took it outside and the sun was so bright.

This is the after. Painted black and then distressed and waxed. I added sheet music to the inside of the drawers. I like the look. Even changed out the drawer pulls from wooden ones to metal ones. These pics are kind of dark, I took them in the living room tonight and didn't have enough light. Sorry!

I sure have been working and I can tell it. My body is so tired. Sure will be glad when this is over. Then I only have one more sale. Again at Cleburne on Nov.6th. Hope if you live here you will pop by Jana's Collected Treasures for her 2nd Trade Day of the year. It will start about 8:00 next Saturday. Mark it on your calendar. We are all going to have lots of fun!

Hugs, Pat

I have been working on several things for Trade Day at Jana's a week from Sat. Please pray for beautiful weather for us!! Last week I was pulling out things and putting price tags on. This weekend it is suppose to be sunny and I plan to paint a chest and shelf. Also have some things I need to clean up outside and I still have to make a trip back to Cleburne to get my tables and a few things I left there from the last sale. But yesterday I started working on these little trees and finally finished last night. I had so much fun making them I hope you love seeing them. This is one of my studio's where I work and it is really a mess, but I accomplished a lot in this mess.

Here is my little feather Christmas tree in lite up in all her glory!!!

This is the white feather tree without lights. I put pink bulbs all over it. Some I did the glitter on. I made lace roses and added to the ends of each limb then wrapped it in little pearls. I just love this little tree, it looks so shabby chic. Wouldn't this be sweet in a bathroom or entry room?

This is my little green tree. It has the regular all colors for Christmas on it. I love to decorate little trees and even big ones.

Hope you enjoyed the trees and have a wonderful day!!

Hug, Pat

Thought I would share a few pictures with all of you today. I have been working for days trying to get everything ready for the Trade Day at Jana's the 24th. Time is passing fast and I still have a lot of work to do. I worked on a couple of Christmas trees today. One is green with the usual Christmas colors, the other one is a white feather tree with pink ornaments and pink lace roses and little white pearls. I'll try to get some good pictures tomorrow and show them to you. Now here are the pictures.

Can you believe this big eyed little lady is me. I think I was about two or nearly, didn't have much hair yet. But by the time I was three I had plenty. This is my only copy. Think I need to have some restore work on it before it all fades away.

Don't you just love little girls all dressed up?

And isn't he a sweety!

I think she is so pretty.

Hope you enjoyed the pictures and have a wonderful night.
Hugs, Pat
