A Few small projects.
I wanted to do a quick post to say I am still here. LOl
I have not been to yard sales or done any different decorating lately. So I altereded and created with things I had on hand.
I finally begin to feel like creating again.
I hope you enjoy.
This little red stocking was one of the ones you can buy at dollar tree or somewhere like that. You know me I can't leave anything the way it originally came. I made the little flower on the stocking.
I also made the flower beside the stocking. I use up my little scraps of fabric this way. I use the flowers to place on other projects ie the stocking.
I changed out some ugly purple roses that someone had arranged in this box. I don't see how they thought purple was the color to put in this box. Maybe they saw something I did not see, and thought purple went well in the box. I tried to match some of the colors of the flowers painted on top this box. I also added the lace and the jade butterfly on the inside of the top.
This is the top of the box.I wish I could take the credit for painting the roses, but I can't. It came like this from the yard sale I purchased it from Someone had ugly purple roses in the box. I changed it out for the flowers in the above picture. I think they match the box better than the purple.
This green rocker I found at a yard sale for a dollar. I was going to paint it a creamy white, but then decided against doing that. I made the little cushion for the seat and I used an old doily for the little round pillow. I also used a doily for the back lace. I added lace around the edges of the seat.
The little cat was a yard sale find for a quarter.
This basket was a Goodwill find several months ago. I knew I wanted to alter the top.
