...my ship has come in!

...hello dear readers!

well,
my ship has finally come in!

~ lol ~

but seriously,
what do you think of her??

 

 
you may remember this "before" shot
i took of her when she first arrived

 

 
uhem,
blah!
you must be joking...

i was NOT going to set sail to the future
 in something that looked like that

yah, no!

give me everyday romance
or
give me death!

whoa!
dramatic much?!

* i blame it on johnny
* ie. jack sparrow



 
anyhoo,

 for months,
(hey, i'm a busy girl!)
i've been working on transforming her into a romantic vision
that i'd be delighted to set off in
seeking a new adventure...

  

 
her sails are completely made out of silk
as,
this is my dream ship :)
this sail has been printed with "toile de sea"

i adore the whimsy that it brings
and if i were ever stranded on a deserted island,
it would make for a lovely dress to wear,
for when i was rescued,
i'd want to look my best

don't ya' think?!

(NOT bringing it to me, just being prepared!!)

   

 
the larger sail is made out of silk crepe
and full of ruffles!!

love it!

 
  
 
and a sea horse is always nearby
to ride for a day of splunkin'

sound fun?!

    
 
 
and my deck?
why ~
crushed pearlized shells of course!!

 


...and even the driftwood would be covered in lace and sparkly rhinestones!




beause many of you know my feeling about lace...
and yes,
at first i thought i may paint my ship out in white
but
i really liked how the lace looked on the wood
so
i covered my ship in lace instead...



  
 oh yeah, baby!!
from the top...

  

 
to the bottom!

  


and just in case you missed it 
here it is again:
~ before ~




and 
~ after ~

 


which one would you embark a journey on ~
hhhmmmm??!




now,
as for my destination?

well ~ that's a whole other story!!

i wonder if johnny/jack would loan me his compass?!

  29. May I ask where you found the original ship?

    ReplyDelete
  30. You are unbelievable dear lady!!! As soon as I saw that ship, I would have given anything to either shrink down to size and sail away on her...or wish for her to magically enlarge to fit me as I now am. Either way...I was ready for a magical sailing....sigh!!! I can dream, can't I?
    Blessings & Hugs,
