Beautiful Stuff

I just love my old hand made cotton and lace tablecloths and have some hanging on a large rack in my spare bedroom next to the studio.I don't know what this work is called looks like big tatting?

I also like this 1/2 doll Bed Lamp. Her dress was beautiful originally however I still like her with her torn wrinkled old dress on


I have a very busy weekend so must get started sorry I can't chat longer 

Here is my wedding veil hanging on a window in this room with the morning sun coming through 

  Have a great week end

Sweet Projects

 Good Morning

I am in the mood for creating some new projects. I have been going through drawers in the studio and pulling out things that match the ideas in my head. Sometimes that is hard to accomplish.However I keep digging.

I want to make some new altered art greeting cards for one thing. A soft sweet card then  something with red in it. The sun is just coming up through my east windows in the studio why this picture has streaks of morning sunshine across it
Then of course I had to get a picture of my oh so sweet white and cream buttons that I adore, some stored in old whiskey bottles I picked up at yard sales etc.

This is the choice of things for another card with red trims

I have the cutest idea for some Christmas shoes made out of my little baby shoes and broken china pieces. I hope to get a completed picture for you soon .

I had best be going I have to get ready to go with a friend over to Arrow Rock Theatre to see Tammy Wynette and George Jones which I an not a fan of country music especially the old time country music that my Grandmother loved, George Strait was Grandma's favorite.just saying.
Anyway my friend couldn't find anyone else and I knew she really wanted to go,so me being a good friend said yes. So Country here I come LOL 
These actors are sometimes right off Broadway in New York City, they are always wonderful actors.


The rest of  my story about Tammy Wynette  & George Jones show at Arrow Rock  Lyceum Theatre.

The show was a lot better than  I had imagined. It was Tammy Wynette life story and it was wonderful and very entertaining I really enjoyed it

New Antique Lamp

As we have gone from nice cool weather back to HOT weather I am staying inside today and getting a few things done to keep from going in and out the hot weather which I am not a fan of.
Now if there is a wonderful vintage sale or estate sale i'll get right out there.


I am trial packing for my trip to Europe in a couple weeks.I think I have 5 pieces of luggage out and they are all to large for a carry on now. They have changed from 23 inch to 22 inch carry ons on airlines now I am told.
We are told to pack everything we need like change clothes,toiletries,jacket, pajamas in our carry ons due to the fact sometimes every tour group persons luggage does not arrive and you have to make due with what you have with you.
We travel from Philadelphia to Munich Germany then Croatia then to Bosnia, then 3 hour bus ride to our little mountain town.
On our way back we leave Bosnia to Croatia to Paris France then back to Philadelphia then home to Kansas City Mo . I really hope we can be in Paris airport long enough to grab a few souvenirs. We only have 1 hour between planes

Isn't this sweet I found it last week n a resale shop for $8
     Here is a sweet little ironstone pitcher I have moved all around my house and it's back in the kitchen now.
This is what made me bring my little dishes with the roses on them back to the kitchen

 I am putting the lamp and rose dishes on my shabby chic chippy kitchen cabinet, look at the little boy and his dog on the base of this lamp, so sweet, the base is heavy iron

 The white glass shade with roses is not original to this old oil lamp someone electrified it years ago. I made take off the electric part and make it an oil lamp again

I love the glass part where you put the oil for the lamp there is some dried in the bottom which I am going to get cleaned out some how? The red looking stuff.

In this picture you can see where the new electrified part has been added , you can always tell it's been electrified when the electric cord come out from the top of the base.

Stay cool and enjoy your Labor Day weekend
