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.
Blessings to you this Sunday morn,

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

What a lovely space you have and so nicely arranged I want to come over and browse, I'm sure I would come away with some delights.
Enjoy wearing your lovely pin from Pat Winters, she is truly a clever lady.

Thank you for such a sweet post about your giftie. I am so glad you enjoyed it. It is fun preparing packages for sweet people. I am like you when a package arrives, I must photograph the opening process to share. LOL.
Hugs, Pat

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!
