Friday Goodwill Finds:Beautiful Works of Art

Dear Friends

My Friday Goodwill Finds are these great needle point finds. I admit, I have had them for sometime and paid only $5.95 for all and decided to finish these beautiful works of art.  I also found beautiful fabric that I will use for one to make a pillow. The fabric was $1.51!

Does anyone needle point anymore?  Is this a lost art like sewing?  Well, I intend to bring these Beautiful Works of Art back...

So, you must stay tuned for more Beautiful Works of Art, you will not be disappointed!

Berry Sets?

Dear Friends

Hope you had a great weekend and that your enjoying every moment of summer!  I wanted to share a few things that I collect and will be sharing later in the week, Berry Sets.  Can you imagine people had nine course meals and saved the fruit and tea for last.  I will try to incorporate these into a "Alfresco" table setting later this week.  I've included a post of Berry Sets history for your entertainment.  Stay tune for more shabby beautiful.

Friday Goodwill Finds:Mr.&Mrs.

Dear Blogging Friends

It's a joy to share my creativity with you and I appreciate every view or comment.  Today's Goodwill Finds are pillows for my outside rockers.  Both pillows were $4 and the Mr.&Mrs. stencil $4 from Hobby Lobby and a little chalk paint. If I can do this any one can and you "CAN" transform Goodwill pillows into shabby beautiful!  By the way, the rockers were Goodwill finds and you can see the transformations here:

Hope you have a Great Shabby Weekend and stay tune for more shabby beautiful to come!

Cinderella Guest Room

Dear blogging Friends

I promised you Goodwill lamp makeovers and here they are in the Cinderella Guest Room on the vanity.  The reason I call it the Cinderella Room is my inspiration for the room was my daughters first prom dress.  When she wore this dress the night of prom she reminded me of Cinderella.  The furniture was a purchased from one of my favorite antique stores, Antiques In Old Town, Lilburn.  The prints are Maude Humphrey and Zula Kenyon, my love of children prints and my favorite quote, " One Shoe Can Change Your Life"!  If this room doesn't make you feel like Cinderella, just kiss the prince your with.

Have a fairy tale week!
