Meet Della

Hello there!  Hope your week has been great so far.  I was served "dinner" by a very cute waiter (barefoot, owl t-shirt) that served me some juice (that he grabbed back from me and drank) and calorie free, light as air cookies (well, they were air.)  Plus, I have been working on some pieces for the booth and a few new designs for the etsy shop and listed some vintage items.
So, here is the piece that is currently residing in our entry, Della.

It is a little different than I usually do... but I really like the way it looks.

And here is what she looked like before her little nip and tuck:

All the really cool trim had fallen off... so I just painted her a pretty warm grey.

And, since I dyed my doilies, I am crazy about dying stuff.  So I did these new ruffle pillows

Frayed ruffles... grey.... 

And I have a new towel design too

and a few new vintage items

Okay, that is enough of self- promotion! I will be back Friday with some etsy favorites!

Bye for now!
