Fashion Becomes Furniture

hello all!
It is snowing. 
It took me awhile to get home.
But I am here safe and sound.
As much as I complain about the winter, the snow is quite pretty.
As long as this girl doesn't drive in it, then it is okay.
But it had better be clear tomorrow for momma to get her haircut!!

I think in my last post I lead you to believe that Mr. Hughes is against the lovely mirror staying.
Oh, the contrary!  I am a lucky lady when it comes to husbands and the decorating.  
He likes it as much as I do.  He even suggested a few places for it to work.
I am just sure that if I decided to rearrange the whole downstairs to make this mirror work better then he would not be so happy.
Some of you came up with some great suggestions for the mirror and it seems the consensus is for me to keep it, or to send it to a few of you.

So, I got sidetracked... the real purpose of my post is showing you the inspiration for one of my newest pieces, the Meghan.
I didn't really even realize I was inspired or I had filed the photo away in my head to be pulled out later, half way through a project.

So how fabulous are these spectator pumps?

And, if you have tiny feet, then they could be yours.

In the spirit of fabulous, two-tonedness, here is Meghan!

I kept the hardware original.  I just love the lines of this piece.  She was a bit hohum before the cream on warm grey treatment.

And, her drawers are lined with vintage sheet music.
As always, I would love to keep her.
But, she is at one of the booths waiting on someone (who may just be wearing a great pair of vintage pumps) to take her home.

Well, duty calls... or more specifically, chubby baby toes needing to be tickled!

bye for now!


  1. beautiful, michelle! love the colors and the sheet music- just fabulous!!!

  2. Wow! She turned out great! :) I really like the two tone colors, it brings out the beautiful lines of the piece.

  3. What a pretty chest of drawers! We ended up with about 3 1/2 to 4 ins. and that was enough.

  4. Oh My!
