I took new pictures of the booth last week after I redid it. Thought you might like to see what I have in the booth. Get you a cup of tea and enjoy, there are a lot of pics.

This is the pillow that I showed you the other day. I had just started it.

And I think I have showed you this chair before. This chair is over 100 years old. I had to work on it. But it sure looks good now. And I have about 6 more.

Hope you enjoyed!! Have a great day

Happy Easter

Hope everyone had a Happy Easter and got to visit with family and friends. May we all give thanks to our Lord Jesus Christ for the sacrafice he made for us. Giving his life for ours. We are all very precious and I am thankful for each one of us. May we keep these thoughts everyday!!

This is a lampshade that I had dressed in pink some time ago. I put it in the mall, but it just sat there. I was told to change the pink to cream or white. So I tea dyed some silk and made a new rose. Also dyed some of the lace. We will see if that helps.

I am going to the mall today and will take a few pics as I changed everything last week. Put in new things and took some out. Also added some new color.

Hope every one is having a wonderful day!!!!

I finished another new rose this morning, so thought I would post it. I will be putting them in the mall tomorrow. This one is silk with tulle and leaves made from crushed velvet. And little yellow shoes I found at an estate sale. They are so sweet. Someone has already claimed them site unseen. I'll email her to take a look.

Hope everyone has a great night. I'm going to work on the booth tomorrow and Antique Alley is this weekend, so I plan to go at least one day. Can't wait!!!!

Thought I would show you the roses I made yesterday. This one is a pale blue with antique lace leaves and antique lace trim. I added little pearls all over. These are corsages too.
This one has three twisted rolled roses with antique lace all around. I added bling beads to the front. I just bought some off white crushed velvet to make some more flowers. I'm really getting into flower making. Thanks for stopping by. Hope you have a great weekend!!

New Flowers for the Mall

I have been making a few flowers the past couple of days. This one today, it is made from pink crushed velvet. I put some antique lace in the back and the leaves are green crushed velvet with the embroidery to give them highlights. And it had to have a little bling with a rhinestone button. It is a pin that I will be selling in my booth.
This one I made a couple of nights ago. I took it to the mall to show a couple of friends and now I am holding it for a lady. It has part of an antique collar in the shape of a half circle on the back. And green organza ribbon leaves. I added a few stamens in the center of the rose and some beads hanging at the bottom. This one is crushed velvet too with a pin on the back. The blues look much lighter in person, with lots of highlights.
This is some more of that pink crushed velvet. I added some antique lace around the edges of the rose. I love this lace, it was on some material lace and was so old it was coming apart so I cut out the designs. They are beautiful. The leaves are a light golden organza ribbon. Also a pin on the back
The next two flowers are made out of paper pattern sheets. I have these two started and will finish them up in the morning. Need to wrap the stem with some floral wrap and maybe add some more little beads and for sure some glitter.
Thanks for stopping by and hope all of you have a wonderful week.
