...hello dear ones!!
what can I say about
...just look at it!
it has beautiful curves,
it sounds lovely rolling off of your tongue...
say it with me ~
I told you!
isn't it simply a lovely letter??!
it most certainly does NOT have a thing to do
with it being MY first initial
It's today's posts sponsor!!
(say that 10 X's!)
I've been working in the studio this week
sketching some new designs,
designing some new shop tags
I really like how these paper rhinestone ex voto's turned out
and I've been piecing vintage laces with strips of old satin wedding gowns,
creating a few lovely wrist cuffs...
I've also been playing around with
~ the blue chair ~
the one I showed you last week...
maybe after I show you the blue chair in these next few pictures
you will have a different opinion on the reconstructing of the said blue chair!
I don't know...
maybe I shouldn't reveal this
you may not like it...
this IS the kind of decorating that goes on
behind the lace curtain...
here goes nothin`
may I present to you the
hubby o` mine called it this
the night he walked through the front door
and saw it all put together and exclaimed
(what? don't you have pet names that are only endearing if your love says them to you???!!)
he says to me ~
"Honey Bunns...is this your new chair for receiving visitors when they come for a visit????"
and I was thinking ~
well, this Marie Antoinette like backdrop did take a few days to construct
there were the metal frames:
I picked them up for a song thrifting one day
they are from Italy and were a dark metal color
along with a gaudy gold shelf ~ with ROSES!!!!
I then added a few cream and blue tassels
and made frame collars out of coffee filters
and just hot glued these all the way around in the back until
I was happy with the fullness!
I use coffee filters and cupcake liners
whenever I'd like a little more body
than tissue or crepe paper will give me
see how lovely a neck ruff and cupcake cuffs look made out of them on my Santos?
close up of her neck ruff...
close up of her cupcake cuffs!!
I also sprayed the gaudy gold shelf
to put it all together ~
add in a-one lace panel
a-two beautiful silk dupoini panels
a-three revamped metal frames
"yes, it takes three licks to get to the center of a lollipop"
GET OUTTA` HERE!!
It's not time for a commercial break yet!!!
(I really don't like tootsie roll pops anyway!!!)
I think it was all the over spray from that creamy white spray paint!!!
now where was I???
...the blue chair saga continues...
I really like how this drapes,
like the front of one of Marie's sumptuous dresses!
I do hope you enjoyed your visit today!
I've linked up with Debra's
over at Common Ground
I'll show you the side table ruffly treatment
and dear swanee's flower change!
I'm also putting together a special "happy 200th follower giveaway" surprise together
so stay tuned dear ones!!
and I'd love to hear your feedback ~
not about Mr. Owl
and the fact that you DO like tootsie pops
if this pertains to you
email me your address ~
and I'll send you AALLLLL of my tootsie pops from tricks or treats this year!
you're wondering what I'm going to go as this year?
(or maybe, you're wondering if I really go!!!LOL!!!)
do ya` think Mr. Owl magically deliciously got on this post by mistake??
about the chair!!
I'm really leaning towards painting it a creamy white
and then covering it in a soft white linen...
but who knows...
that could all change again!!
here's to Marie's influence, coffee filters and the letter R!
