Journey Home

I feel as if I have been MIA. This has been a very busy fall. I am getting ready for my fall sale. I won't bore you with all that involves. But I am changing the date . It is positively going to be held the first weekend in November. We are expecting our first grandchild in mid November. So, I was going into panic mode....I knew Maryn Rae could not make her arrival without me being there. So PLEASE mark your calendars for November 5-6. I have so many great pieces.....along with an added bonus.....some amazing pieces from VictoriaGene. I promise I will get some pictures on my site this week.
Sara and I are leaving early Thursday. We are going to Columbus for the Country Living Fair. Can't wait! We splurged on the early bird tickets this year. If you ever get the chance..GO! I will try and remember that I have my camera in my purse this year and take lots of pictures.
But, until then I wanted to share a few things I have been working on.

This oh so sweet lamp will not make it into my sale.......because it is going.....................

in this little girl's room! Our grandbaby that is due November 22nd.

yes....more flower I ever stop with these things????

key to unlocking all those wonderful memories.....

A couple of pillows. I have discovered the most amazing method of doing a transfer on fabric.



This is a necklace that I have been working on for Tickled Pink. Tickled Pink is a special ladies night out sponsored by Vera Bradley for the Vera Bradley Breast Cancer Foundation. It will be held October 1. What a fun evening for such a wonderful cause. 500 women dressed in pink....There is a silent auction held throughout the evening. I had been asked to design/donate a necklace. It is copper with vintage pink pieces. It has a hand-stamped copper disc with their theme "Hope Grows". I am so excited. This year, my sister-in-law is coming from Michigan, along with her daughter, daughter in law and her mother. So they will join my daughter, my daughter in law and her mother and I for the evening. So , it will truely be a special girl's night out for us!

a fall wreath I put together this afternoon for the back door. I will stick a rosette on anything!

TOOTING MY OWN HORN....just a little

Ok. So, I want to do a little boasting. I found this chaise at a yard sale. They had it marked $20...ended up getting it for $10. I have said it before.....I do not do serious sewing....BUT...decided to attempt to make a slip cover. So, using a drop cloth this is what I ended up with! I am pretty proud of myself! Will I ever make slip covers for a living?? NEVER NEVER EVER!

(oops, need to snip some threads.....)

I love these glass doors. Decided to use them for a headboard.

A couple more dresses for the sale. The first one was made using a vintage pillowcase.

Cute little choker.....

Remember this little piece? It went from this.....

to this! Thank you to my friend Cassie....she had used this color on a piece and I fell in love with it. It is called 'peppercorn"...a deep gray. Love the little glass knobs. Found them at Anthropolgie...yellow butterflies.

sorry....kind of blurry....wanted to show you the detail.
