Let Them Be Little !!

I have been busy painting this bed for a friend of mine for her granddaughter...What I wouldn't give to be a little girl again...

Painted in a Cottage Shabby White...Adorned with Pink Roses and Greenery...

I just love the DREAM...Sweet Dream...What a perfect word to go to sleep....

Added the same wording to the little foot stool...to match...


I think this turned out beautiful...I hope to have another little girl in the family some day....She will be spoiled rotten in Shabby Chic and Roses....Check back soon for a matching bookcase/toy box...

Pretty Shabby

Picked this little shabby dresser up at one of our local stores...Loved the cubby topper...Hoping this piece will make a great addition to my craft room soon.... 

Wall Jewelry Box

I wanted to share with you a wall jewelry holder that I recently made...This is actually a wooden cutlery tray I purchased from our local Walmart...I gave it some shabby creme paint...decoupaged with some vintage paper and adorned with some shabby knobs...ready to display on the wall...

Wishing EveryOne A Happy Valentine's Day !!!!

I have spent the past couple of days making up some "sweet" Valentine's...Thought I would share a few pics with you...I am presently starting a new journey of making Gourmet Baskets that will add to my collection of Candy Bouquets...I really enjoy making these...It is a joy to see a customer's eyes when you walk into the room with one of these and I hope they give the same effect to the person receiving them...
Please "BE MINE" Valentine....This basket is made with a hot pink flower pot as my container...filled with lots of candy and homemade vanilla flavored rose suckers...Can't forget the little fluffy friend and some ribbon...

"Are You Ready For Some Football"....Loves these little treat bags...I made these for a little guy for his school Valentine's Party..Made some great use with my leftovers from the Super Bowl...

"Gourmet Baskets" My Newest Endeavor
