Work Still Going on in the Studio pt2

Hello Everyone yes I am still working on this small space I call a office/studio lol.  Here are some photos of what I have done so far.  Will have my newest Mammy done sometime next week.

 The nightstands I stacked them holding my printer I am going to paint white and the wall with the pictures I will make a frame almost the size of the wall and use chalk board paint to cover it.  So it will look like one giant chalkboard. 

Well there is still more to do and so far I am loving the switch of curtains it is much more brighter in here now and my new Pink desk is sew perfect.  Have a great day everyone
Peace and Blessings

Foot Stool

Greetings just a shorty of a post today and some random photos.  I am just about done with my foot stool but it still seems as though something is missing just can't seem to put my finger on it just yet but here she is

For now I think I am going to let her be.  I still have so many more projects to accomplish for 2012.  My little Boudoir is coming along.  Still on the list of things to do in here are Drapery and Blinds, I wish Candice http://hookedonhouses.net/2010/05/13/all-about-candice-olson-her-divine-designs/

could magically appear at my house and say go stay at the hotel for a week and when you come back you will have the room of your dreams.  This room is just Gorgeous!!  Be still my heart but a girl can dream and dreams do come true.

So for now this is my little boudoir  in progress

This is a sweet birthday gift I received of a vintage manicure set from the 50's like me lol  wow I am a whole 55 Years old now

Oh how I love girly things, I was such a tomboy growing up but I always would look at the old glamor movie stars and dream.  Have a great Week all and big Thanks to all my followers

Peace and Blessings

Projects and More Projects

Greetings Everyone! I would like to thank everyone for the Birthday Wishes and the Blessings left on the passing of my Granddad.  My Birthday was relaxing I made myself a cake lol It started off with the plan of being a lemon curd coconut cake but ended up being a lemon cake with butter cream lemon frosting with coconut and lemon curd in the middle I know a bit much but it was delightful. 

As you can see from the photos below of my tiny Kitchen I am having hardwood flooring installed.   The flooring that was down before was laminate that was poorly installed.  There were times you would have to kick the pieces back together.  I don't know who installed the floor but they should never be allowed to install another floor again.  The type of wood flooring I am putting down now is called engineer flooring it is great because it can be installed almost over any type of sub flooring even concrete. It is more durable than regular wood so it makes it also great for kitchens you don't have to worried about it being damage with water.  So this is the first of many projects to be done in Americas tiniest kitchen. 

Now moving on to my next project this one I am doing myself  hehe.   This footstool sat in front of my vanity

but after time as passed it is time for a change.  Plus there is this idea in my head that I know will be fabulous when I am done. But look at what I had to go through to remove this cover

What a mess!! and to make even worse what a piece of JUNK!!! I don't remember how much I paid for this little stool but it was too much money after seeing all of this.  There were tons of staples and then it was cover with something that looked like a sock lol I don't know what the heck that thing was but any who this is what I am going to cover it with
I am looking for some old rhinestone pieces of jewelry to make a center button.  I will show updates on this one when it's all done.  Next is a project I want to try that I found in Create and Decorate Magazine.  I have had this sewing basket for sometime now.

Well Ladies time for me to go visiting more of you I am still catching up.  Then off to more creating.  This year will be a year of Creating for me One Idea At A Time.  Have a Wonderful Evening
Peace and Blessings

A Song in my Heart

Hello everyone!  I just wanted to share a few things today.  I don't know if any of you have ever noticed I try not to put any sad or negative things on my blog.  I really don't share a lot about my personal life just little drips here and there.  One reason for this is because I wanted my blog to be a place where I could escape and tell stories from my imagination about dolls that I make.  Sometimes I will share other things like my Tata I mean could not want to talk about him lol. 

Well I am going to share with you today about my Grandfather who just passed away at the age of 89.  He lived long enough to see his last Birthday on December 16th.  He lived a good life and he is now in a better place.  I will miss him but I am not sad for him.  My sisters Birthday was January 6th, and he went in the hospital on her birthday and passed away the next day.  His service will be this Saturday Jan 14th and my Birthday is Jan 15th.  So now it's time to celebrate. 

I really love Home Goods Store and I love my Birthday even more lol and since my Birthday is coming up why not treat myself to a gift. I could not leave this table behind. My name was etched all over the mirrors.

It wouldn't fit in my friends Joyce car but we gave it all we had poor Tyrone the store clerk I know he was glad to see us two ladies finally leave. I gave him a lesson on being married and having a woman in the house we get what we want by all means necessary and also told him once he gets married he no longer have anything not even his name lol whats hers is her and whats yours is hers.
Well I am going to close now have a great evening all
Peace and Blessings
