Happy Monday everyone!
Well, I was so disappointed that the Daytona 500 wasn't able to run yesterday because of all the rain, so they postponed it for noon today.....well....it's STILL raining there, so know it's scheduled for 7 p.m. ~ the forcast shows the rain to be moved out by 3 p.m., so we'll see. It will take them at least a couple of hours or so to get the track completely dried and ready for racing!
So, instead of watching the race, I went ahead and painted the vintage hamper that I showed you in my last post....it's now painted a soft pretty pale pink, and I am soooo loving it!!
I also gave a lampshade I found at Goodwill some time ago a transformation.... the fabric I used is from some pretty off-white Irish Damask linen napkins I picked up at a thrift store this past fall...and some similar colored gimp trim, and a slightly darker fringe trim around the bottom. Very simple and so elegant ~ I haven't decided if I'm going to keep this shade, or offer it up on one of my selling sites....I don't have a base for it yet, so maybe I'll go on a hunt for the perfect one...the one it's shown displayed on now, is one that I have a pink shade for, and want to keep that one on it, as it matches another shade that I also have in the room.
This morning I finially got down to work and started creating some new things to offer up on both Ebay and Etsy....it's been probably almost 2 weeks since I've done any sewing!! Just didn't have the ambition to do so, I guess, but today I'm finally starting to feel a bit in the creative mood :) This sweet accent pillow is made using 2 lovely Mary Rose prints, both of which are no longer being made, which is such a shame! You'll also find pretty Venice lace trim, and a bow of Vintage pink ribbon. I'll be listing this sweet pretty either later today or tomorrow on Ebay.
UPDATE: This pillow is now Sold ~ Thank you Miss J
I have a hair appointment in just over an hour...finially getting it colored again to hide that "you know what" hair we ladies aren't too fond of, lol :) Hubby says I should just "let it go", What??? Oh no!! I'll keep coloring it as long as there is hair on this head, LOL :)
Have a great week everyone!! We're expecting to get some Ice here in Michigan Tuesday night into Wednesday morning...hopefully we don't lose power!! Yikes!!
Until next time sweet friends!!
