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.
