HI GIRLS! it's been too long! i just haven't had time to blog since starting my new biz, i really don't know how you all do it all! well, the biz is plugging along, although oct. is not the greatest month for sales. according to alot of the other vendors in the store i rent in, it's bad because the 1st 2 wks. of oct. is the big fresno fair! apparently, that keeps people from shopping???? anyway, i hope nov. is better cuz mama has bills to pay and gifts to buy and decorating to fund! let's see, i don't even know where to start, i've done about a million projects since we last visited - i have to pick one to show you...this solid maple table i purchased at a thrift store for $5! now it's so cute in all cream!
this cake carrier was given to me by a friend and I painted and embellished it. i kinda want to keep it;)
now this entertainment cabinet was a mess when i found it. i was on my way home from costco, and lo and behold- i spotted this train wreck of a cabinet on the side of the road waiting to be rescued or thrown in the dump truck! it had no glass, no back and a broken leg! so hubby picked it up for me, added a back and some wood panels where the glass had been, and fixed the broken leg. then i painted it cream,glazed it w/ R.L.'S tea-stained glaze and added the embossed wallpaper to the back and the doors and voila! it's now for sale at the shop! $289.99
this little beaut i picked up at a side walk sale of another antique store for $10, i just sold it to a friend of mine for $30. not much of a profit, but i'm glad it's in a home where it'll be loved! (of course, i had to paint it first)
okay, so that's more than one, but it's been sooo long! so i thought i'd throw in a few extras! til next time- keep creating!
