She Considers a field, and buys it,
with the fruit of her hands she plants a vineyard

I'm probable doing this the hard way, useing chip board instead of stencils, but it's what I have to work with for now. I went looking for stencils but had a hard time finding large ones that don't cost me trillions of dollars.

I'm making covers for a chair and vanity bench.

semi free styling
Ok, keep it between the lines..

with the left over fabric from the chair and bench, I'm making some banners and, for today it's all about PARIS..

I did a little shadowing with some white fabric paint..

I'm just beside my self, love how they turned out..

Have a Blessed Day,

How Do You Relieve Stress?

I lock myself in my craft room and I create, rather it be scrapbooking, sewing or collage art..

On this day I just need to get out of the workshop and take a break from painting furniture.

My hubby had this old file cabinet he had to through out and it had a wood top. I took the wood top off and cut it into four pieces.

Here is what I did with them. #4 is still a work in progress.


"One of the advantages of being disorderly is that one is constantly making exciting new discoveries"

The top saying describes my craft room.

My favorite saying

" I used everything you gave me"

Boy and Girl.

girl: I love you

boy: I love you too

girl: Prove it. Scream it to the world.

boy: *wispers in her ear* i love you.

girl: Why'd you wisper it to me.

boy: Because you are my world.

Now, how cute is that, just melt my heart..

I added eye hooks and ribbon to hang them, they are now hanging on the wall in my space at Valley Antiques.


Hope all had a Blessed weekend.

~~~I Did It~~~

1st truck load..

There inside the warehouse...

I didn't know he knew how to work the camera.
These were two pic's I could share out of the 10 he took, the ones of me sanding the legs of this piece are now deleted.. Thank God for the delete button.
When I turned around and seen my hubby holding the camera I thought he was joking until I loaded the pic's on my computer.

This is truck load #2 and a small table & 2 chairs were in my van. So all in all we had 3 loads of furniture that went to the warehouse.

All this furniture was likely one and a half truck loads when we bought it.

After the furniture is painted we can only get a couple of pieces of furniture on the truck at a time, don't want to dig or scratch it.

I reallllllyyyy like this cabinet, I added a little flair to it with a stencil and some ASCP in Paris Gray..

The inside of this cabinet is just fab, you'll have to come to the warehouse to see it.

How cute is this table and chair set, there is more to it than what meets the eye, stop by the warehouse on Oct 21, 22 & 23 and you can see for yourself whats missing with this set..

There you have it , the most furniture I have ever put out in two days.

There is a couple of pieces I didn't show you, can't give away all the goodies yet.


Be Blessed,

Rain Rain Go Away, I Have A Lot Of Painting To Do

This is not something I show the world everyday.. Picture's of my garage/ workshop, loaded with furniture that needs painted, but this weather is killing me..

Between the rain and the humidity, the paint don't want to dry, and then there is no way to distress these pieces. I really need to get this furniture finished so I can sale it at the shop.

It has been raining here in the north central part of Maryland since Sunday.

I'm in need of some sunshine..

I seriously thought I seen animals line up two by two today.

Well thats enough complaining about that. I did get some craft projects done inside, that normally I may not have finished if the sun was shining, so my time wasn't totally a waste.

I wish sunny skys for everyone.


Be Blessed,

Shabby Up Modern

I'm still working on this danish modern dining set, (from my last post) I really like the fabric I'm using on the 6 chairs. I needed some decor to add to the set that brings out the color in the fabric. I was hoping to find some items in the yellow but it was an all day task yesterday going store to store, with no luck. I stopped at our local ribbon outlet and just as I walked in the door my eye cought this yellow ribbon. so I sprayed the base of this brass lamp in this blue and made a ribbon shade with creams and yellow to match the fabric.
I'm finding myself getting really attached to this set, I really need to get it finished and over to the warehouse, before I move it in my house.

this is the danish modern sideboard

and this is the sideboard destressed.

I'm adding the polly on it today.

The warehouse opens Oct 21, 22 & 23

for more info about the warehouse click here

For the rest of the decor I'm using to decorate this set you must wait until the opening of the warehouse.
Be Blessed
