Lady in Waiting

She is a lady, from her tiara to her curvy legs and she is waiting for a girls room to become her home. Maybe a little girl  to hold her dolls  or perhaps a tween girl to display her collections or a grown-up "girly" girl to hold the romantic things she has acquired over time . In her former life she was my grandmother's china cabinet. You can see pictures in a previous post.  I loved her before and I love her now even more in her shabby chicness. Luv all things pink!

Just a little something!

I know I promised a finished product (my grandmother's china cabinet transformed), and it is finished. However I need help to move it either to my space at the Corner Store or into my house to stage it. By the way, I really love it. So it will be coming up soon. In the meantime i finished this little toy box.  I think it is a cute little boy blue. I also found some really cool junk at a barn sale and my local thrift store.  Looks like Memorial Day weekend will be a working weekend for me. Although it is a good kind of work when you love what you are doing.  I hope everyone has a fun and safe holiday and a special thank you to those who have served our country and especially to those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice.  God Bless you.

Vanity, vanity all is vanity

I know I promised a look at the china cabinet in it's new life, but I hit a few speed bumps.  Coming soon. In the meantime finished a vanity and matching seat in Annie Sloan Chalk paint. Here it is in it's awful Formica topped before and the transformmed after. What do you think?

Give away!

Head over to Southern Hospitality for the great Silhouette give away, I did!

Blog crisis solved

Thanks Amy, you are the bomb!

My Space at The Corner Store Antiques and more

thought I would share pictures of my "stuff" in the best little antique store in the universe, no kidding! I hope you enjoy these as much as I have enjoyed collecting, painting, sewing and arranging.  It is a work in progress ever changing. Kudos to Karen, Amy and CJ for the help and support to get started in this business . I've found a new passion.

a preview......tease

There is a project I'm working on that is close to my heart.  This old girl was in my Grandmother's dinning room when I was a child ( which was a long time ago) until she passed away at 82. She and my Grandfather were married over 60 years, but I didn't know when the cabinet was purchased.  I received the cabinet and used it in a guest room to display different collections.  My daughter used it for quite a few years until she recently gave it back to me.  I don't have room for it and it really isn't that valuable except for the memories. I had an idea to give it new life.  Here is a peek at the cabinet in my garage before the transformation started. I should have it finished Monday or Tuesday.  Stay tuned for it's new look!
