I have been quite busy with this whole re-do of my apt. I knew it would be a big job and I am making a little progress. I have a few photos to share of some of my treasures I have found. I cant show you photos of a room yet, for fear someone would send them to the tv show "Horders"! :) I have spent so little on this so far, thats the good news. The bad news is when you go for the good deals, it means lots of painting and sprucing up. That just takes a little more time, and that is something I am kind of short on, but its the adventure! I have found two large domed cake plates for $2.00 each! I got the Eiffel Tower book ends at Borders on clearance for $4.98. I had been eyeing that cute paper plate holder forever at Tillies Attic (the shop I am in) but it didnt match my kitchen before. So I was happy to finally get it:) Plus I can now use all of the things I have painted at the As You Wish Ceramic Studio. I am using the two vintage suit cases for storing my patterns. I love the cupcake picture, I got that at Home Goods. As you can see I am going for the Bakery theme. I have an entry way that I am bringing my antique stove back home and I am going to set up my little entry area and make it look like a French Bakery. Tons of cute ideas for that:) So, my entry, kitchen, sitting area and studio work area will be pink with a French Bakery theme. I got the shelf with glass doors and painted it pink, it will have a dowel to hang on the bottom to thread ribbon spools on. That will be the ribbon cabinet and just below is a night stand I painted pink and put round white knobs on. This will be for my trims and lace. I am looking for a three drawer dresser to paint the same and add the same knobs. I love polka dots and those cute little knobs are perfect. The fabric accents I am using will be pink with with dots too. Cant wait to show you more.
I have been do some creating. I have been in an earring sort of mood. I made quite a few today. I hope you are having a great weekend and enjoying the fall weather. I hear its great. I wouldnt know, in AZ its still over 100!
