I have been busy creating new items for the booth and for my etsy shop and for baby hughes upcoming 2nd birthday party. This is one of my favorite things about being a mom... little kid birthday parties. Now this year, we won't as big as we did last year for his 1st birthday, but I still want it to be special. I will tell you the theme is owls (of course) and I will also let you know that it is against Tennessee State Law to bring a live owl to a birthday party. Just so you know.
Here are a few of the things I have been working on....
I had a couple of these antique mahogany side chairs that we bought years ago as part of a lot. They had seen better days so I have worked this weekend on giving them a little perky makeover....
I used a pretty blue paint and sweet birdie damask, added new trim and the pair looks fantastic, if I do say so myself. They ( the Holly Chairs... I played around with Bertie, but it felt too obvious) will be going to the booth along with a table this week... I am not ready to say goodbye to Tara yet. I got them finished just in time as I sold the Jacqueline chest today. So I will be headed over there on Wednesday to do a major overhaul of my little space.
I have had some requests for some burlap lampshades, so I have added a few styles to my etsy shop. I am using vintage frames, so I will make them as I find interesting shapes and styles.
I also have added some screen printed flour sack towels. Mr. Hughes had a screen burned for this ages ago, and we finally got around to making them when I opened the booth.
And, here is something that I found that I adore, but I went ahead and decided to list it... just because you can't keep everything and because I like to share the vintage love *wink*
oooh, how I love vintage birdcages... especially in blue. I figured if the Tara chest is staying with us for awhile longer, I could stand to part with this blue beauty!
Well, I hope each and every one of you Americans had a great Fourth. And, I hope all of my International friends had a wonderful weekend. I hope to be back later this week with a booth update and maybe some photos of an updated bedroom.... I have one more day off and a whole house to clean... but I am hoping that I can get our bedroom to a finished for now state
