Love all the colors in these vintage sheets. Won't they make adorable dresses? I picked them up a flea market this past week.

A waterfall style dresser. I actually finished this today......turned out beautifully. I painted it a pearl grey. Found some cute vintage wallpaper in greys that I plan to line the drawers with.
I LOVE a good flea market. We went to Strawtown last Thursday. We got there about 10 and people were packing up at noon to leave! After asking around we found out that they actually open up about 5 a.m.! We did get some great deals since people were wanting to leave. One of my best deals was locker baskets.....I have wanted some of these forever......great for storage....
One of my favorite finds of the day! Someone had covered a board in bark cloth and hand painted flowers on the top. It is hard to see but there are nails at an angle.....I hung it in my craft room in my sewing area for thread spools. I LOVE IT!
really.......this had to be from the 70's....

Finished and ready for the sale! We had to do a little repair work on this desk....Rich added beadboard to the ends and cream and black knobs that I picked up at Hobby Lobby.
Ready for the beach house!
This is a storage/cube table.

I am still on a sewing spree. I think that I becoming addicted to fabric. I love sewing these little dresses. It is such a sweet pattern.

the paper-roSE one day sale is next Saturday, July 23, 10-3. Could I not have picked a cooler time of year to do my first "pop-up" sale????? We started sanding and painting this morning at 7. I know our neighbors love us....We have a good assortment of chairs, small table and dressers. Hope you come and check it out!

I am still having this thing for little birds.....these are made using old yard sticks for the wings and vintage jewelry pieces for eyes on on the wings.

I think I am becoming a fabric addict. I need help. There are just so many cute prints out there! I am loving making things for Maryn.
This is such a sweet little dress pattern. I have made a couple for Maryn and Missy has paired it with leggings. SO CUTE! Guess I should get a picture of that for advertising!!
I having been making dresses and skirts in sizes 6 months-3T.
I love the vintage print on the sleeves... This one is 12-18months

Size 2T
Skirts are priced at $12 and dresses are $20.

I fell in love with this little desk. I LOVE it even more now! I painted it in a soft pearl gray and glazed over it with black and then dry brushed white on it. Added some vintage glass knobs....sweeeeeettt!

This will have to be a total remake. The bottom of the cabinet is barely standing. Sides and back are out. But, I fell in love with the color and the top piece.

Thinking of adding this to the desk top. Love the little cubbies.
Sewing, sewing sewing!
Sweet sweet Maryn. Missy and Tyler took Rich and I out for father's day and then we took Maryn to the Ft Wayne Children's zoo. I think she will enjoy it much more next summer.
