OUR BOOTH AT "LONE STAR ANTIQUE MALL AND MY GIFT FROM PAT WINTERS

Welcome to our booth, the table right in front is one that I fixed for Antique Alley at Cleburne and got rained out. So maybe it will find a new home here. Things have been selling good for us, better that I would have thought with the economy as slow as it is. And I love being back in this mall. Ronnie and Jennifer are the owners and they are the best!!!!

This is a stained glass window that belonged to my cousin. I cleaned it up and it looks awsome now..........


Now this looks more like my little corner of the world. My antique lamp with its new hat I made and the header that I painted the roses. Also made the insides of the dark framed picture. "The Wedding ".

And this is a large standing mirror in a wooden frame, very large and so pretty. Way too big for my little house. I have my wicker sewing basket for sale and some of the wooden frames that I have given that shabby chic look.




These are some of the book shelves that we have been working on. We will use this one to display small things for a while....................


This is an old organ that Rick gutted and we are using it for display and it is for sale too. We lowered the price on it today...................


This is a beautiful hand carved wooden trunk that is filled with needle work pillows. If I get my pillow done tonight that I am working on I may put it in the trunk tomorrow, if not I will next week......................
Hope you enjoyed our trip through our booth.......................................................................................





I was so happy when I opened the mailbox today, I had a package from Pat Winters. I had won one of her felted love brooches and it is beautiful............... Even the envelope was wonderful. This humming bird looks like it was made from a lot of butterfly stamps. It is the coolest thing. Then we have the see through packaging with all the lovely stamping, and it was sewn up. I hated to break the threads, but I had to, I wanted to see that pin.





Another beautiful humming bird on the back...........



Then I could see the pin. It was incased in a see through package. Beautiful!!!!!




And this is what I was waiting for.........The beautiful felted love brooch on one of Pat's pretty cards. This girl really does things up right.


Thank you Pat, I loved getting your gift. You know I am one of your biggest fans, I would love anything you made. Just wanted to let you and everyone know how much I LOVE this little brooch. You MADE my DAY!!!! Thank you again.

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Pat, thank you for leaving such a sweet comment. I have missed all my buddies and I feel so far behind. I must go now to read your posts that I have missed.
By the way your tour is wonderful. I would love to see it in person.

Pat,
Oh girl, the booth looks great! It does look just like your style. I stopped by last weekend & it looked good then too, but none of this was in there. You've been a busy bee. I didn't forget about the scrim. I can't find my stash at home, it's a mess here, I'm going to go out & find some more next week. I'll get it to you soon. I also have some other things you might enjoy for your crazy quilts. Your gift from Pat is wonderful too. Lisa

Enjoy wearing your lovely pin from Pat Winters, she is truly a clever lady.

I have not visited you in a while, Pat. You've been very busy. I love the new booth! I know how much time it takes to keep it filled. Good luck to you! Love your brooch too!
