I like alliteration.
How was your weekend?
Ours was filled with booth fluffing.
And house foofing.
And other busy busy-ness
And I am smushing it all in this post.
How do you like my sign for my booth at Winchester?
Mr Hughes made it... from a mirror arm from a dresser and a piece of moulding from who knows what.
It was the second try... the first try was a perfect sign... just a bit heavy...
and here are a few of the latest pieces I have finished:
The Claire... love the original hardware
I lined the drawers with vintage maps... Colorado, Illinois, Arkansas, and Missouri if you are wondering.
The Grace.... you know, because of her graceful curves.
Pretty silver leafed knobs
Sheet music lined drawers
The Eliza (sold...sniff, sniff, I get attached) adore her original hardware.
Also, lined with sheet music... I love lined drawers... it is like a special surprise just for you
The Wren Chairs... painted a darker pretty grey
And I love bird fabric
So the booths were fluffed, now I needed to foof the house. I finally took down all the snowflakes (and the snow finally melted, what do you know.... coincidence?)
This was pretty much Mr. Hughes idea, but I made it happen.
He loves finding these really large dandelions... well, they aren't dandelions, I can't remember what they are. But they are super cool and I have had a few for awhile.
Well, wouldn't you know, they look great perched in a vintage flower frog and covered by a dome.
So, I started looking for more glass stuff that I had hanging around and just grouped it all together.
And, some more....
So, a new look for the mantle. I have been foofing elsewhere too. But that is for another day.....
And just when you think it was all work, all weekend.... take a look at our fire brigade.
Those are needlefelted owls that I made from a kit that the Mr. got me for Christmas from this shop.
At first, I was thinking... okay... I don't get it.... then I started adding the eyes and beak... and then it was quite fun. Now, wouldn't you know it, that rascally baby hughes confiscated them soon after they were finished. And a short time later, they are trained firefighters (and have had more than one nasty accident in their truck.)
And a masterpiece was created. baby hughes is in his choo-choo period. We asked him what it is.... it is always choo-choo tracks or a choo-choo.
We like to encourage the creativity.
That about wraps up our weekend... we just finished up with popcorn and a movie....
I will be back later with more foofing and a small little copy cat project to show you.
bye for now!
