Crochet/Rhinestone Pillow

Hi All...I just wanted to share this wonderful idea for making
pillows! I love to tea-stain pillows, old lace and crochet. So
when I got these two standard vintage shams already tea-
stained from my friend Sue (
I knew exactly how I wanted to embellish them! I just added
a vintage crocheted dresser scarf, some old trim with a vintage
rhinestone pin and millinery flower!
I am working on more pillows..some still in the making! Just wait
until you see these other two I will be posting pretty! Let me
know what you think...because I am thinking of making more, and
opening an Etsy shop! Stay tuned..For Now I hope you all have a
wonderful weekend!!

Lovin' The Monochromatic Look!

The Junking This Week has Been Awesome!
I Just Love This Antique Victorian Photo Album!
All It Needed Was A Little Embellishing With An Old
Black & White Photo, Old Lace, Rosary, and Some
Rhinestones...Just Look At The Detail...Lovely!
Always Make Room For The Things That You
Love The Most...Weed Out The Things That
You Can Sell....To Buy More, And To Pass Along
The Extra Things for Others To Cherish! I Had To Move Some
Treasures From This Display, and It Was Worth it!

Here Is Something That I Have Been Working On...
Just The Other Day I Had Posted This Display. It Was Okay,
But It Needed More White, More Of A Monochromatic Look
Well, I Am Just Loving This Little Vignette Now! I Took The Pink
Flowers Out Of My Vintage Wire Planters...Added Vintage Glass
Prisms & Old Sheet Music...Now It Is Perfect! Don't You Love It?
Love This Old Antique White Door Header...Just Added My
Old Nozzle Collection! Everything is Coming Together Nicely!
The Photo Below Is The Before Picture Of My Wire Planters...
For The Past 5 Years I Believe I was Going A Little Overboard
With A Lot Of Pink! Hence The Name "Pink Obsession"!! I am
Now Loving The Monochromatic Look!! Maybe A New Name
Is In Order?? Until Next Time...Have A Fabulous Day!!

Ironstone Display & Rose Oil Painting

Two Mantel Re-do's this weekend! Love the old roses print
found on my Texas road trip for a mere 8.00! The Super
large antique oil painting over the bed was a steal this weekend for only
$7.00...Of course it was a lot of work though to make her shine
again. She looked as if she had been stored away for many years!
Isn't it gorgeous! I just love it!
Shades of white...wicker, statues, old crochet, just some of my favorites!
Another mantel re-do...Since I have been running out of room in my
dining room for my collection of ironstone...I had to resort to bringing
some into the living room! I'm loving all the white, monochromatic
color inviting! Hope you have enjoyed your visit!
Until next time...have a wonderful day!!
