It’ s Blue Christmas

photo (4)

My lovely daughter in law has wrapped all her gifts this season with blue ribbon, in honor of my hubby.

I love her for her thoughtfulness. 

He recently found out he has prostate cancer. 

He will be having surgery later this month.

I'm Back

It's been awhile.  Lots going on.  I am not going to recap.  

On to new things.

Just a reminder to local folks -  Breaux Bridge Garage Sale is this weekend.  Don't miss it.  This is one good time.

As you can see above,  I am into something new.  Or should I say old. The friends I have from way back know I used to be a florist for many years.  Got a little burned out, but I feel the need to do bridal bouquets now.

How can you not love playing with beautiful things.  And I have to confess I love when I get compliments on the lovelies I make.  

These two will be in my etsy shop soon.   I also have bridal bouquets at Once Upon A Time flea market on Ridge Road in Lafayette, La. 

If anyone has any questions or comments about these please leave a message.  I would love to hear from you.

Also did a curio.  Originally had a mirror back, but Pro and I sorta dropped the mirror.  Not good.  So go to Plan B ,  Wallpaper.

Most, if not all, will be going to the shop.  Trying to get ready for this Saturday.

The city of Breaux Bridge is having a “ginormous” garage sale this Saturday.  So if any of you all are in the area, come on by and see us.  We are expecting about 10,000 people to come thru this small town for big deals.  The whole town is going into garage sale mode.

Look at what this roadside shopper has picked up. 

bed 006

The side is completely covered with duct tape.  Removed the tape and am now trying to get all the glue off.  Other than the duct tape that I am removing and a little wash, this piece is in excellent condition.

Now this is my most current roadside bargain.   Isn’t it just tooo000 cute?

Pro’s Shabby Bedroom

I wanted you to visit with my friend and see what she has been doing with her new finds.

First lets welcome one of her new finds, Kitty.  Kitty sits just right on the vintage bed and chenille bedspread.

The Before.

Believe it or not, this I found on the side of the road as trash.   OK, right now it looks like trash.  But wait.

dollhouse 002

The previous owner, little girl, loved stickers and markers, ALOT.  And this is after I removed an unbelievable amount of stickers.

Isn’t it coming along great.   We still are planning on dressing up the rooms.  Lots of ideas flying around on what to do. 

Don’t you think some little girl would love this?  So it will be at my flea market booth, waiting for a special someone to take it home.

Yes, they are coffee filters

Look at what I made.

coffee filter flowers 005

I made these out of used coffee filters I have been collecting for some time.

I love the multi toned color of the flowers.  The flowers look like big old fashioned roses.  I love it. Don’t you?

coffee filter flowers 013

I had to try a nosegay.  Added a very pale peach bow and vintage lace to wrap the handle.  Wouldn’t this be awesome for a wedding.

I had to try a wreath in autumn colors too.  Love zinnas.  I’m not in love with how this one came out, but it will do.
