new shabby end table

I am so excited! Yesterday I was out with my Mom waiting for Coco to get done with her hair appointment, when we went in a antique co-op. She was telling me that there was a woman that had a booth that was full of white furniture.  
I spotted this cute table. Exactly what I was looking for! It was a steal as well. The booth owner also had some other end tables I am going to keep in mind....

The lamp was from my parents to my hubby and I for our 1 year wedding anniversary... Love Birds.  I loaded up the bottom with Shabby Chic and gardening books. The hanging heart I've had for years, it was hanging in my childhood bedroom. 
I'm still in the process of finishing up the living room, so I will be featuring it soon!

Here's my little fur-ball with her new hair cut. She was sitting pretty while I was moving the room around, but soon I got the camera out she wouldn't sit still... so, sorry about the blurry photos of my Coco :)

little nests

I sure hope Spring is right around the corner, the snow keeps on coming in my neck of the woods. These little creations make me smile.

I hand made the little nests and placed them in a glass desert cup.

{the "welcome spring" nest with blue eggs has sold...thanks!!}

They are a perfect little reminder that Spring is right around the corner.

The second version I made, this one with white speckled eggs with "New Beginnings" banner. This one also has vintage lace added around the glass.

Hope you all have a great week! :)

romantic fans part 2

Since all three of my fans from the previous post sold, I decided to make a couple more for the shop.  

This first one I decided to give it a "natural" look. I made the little bird's nest and added some eggs, feathers and a glittered butterfly to it.

This second one has to be my favorite out of this bunch. I just love the light pink and blue together.  The cameo is the perfect touch!

And this last one I made another pink and white theme. Pink flowers, feathers and seam binding paired with vintage lace and buttons.  

I hope you enjoyed the second installment of the romantic fans, more to come soon!!

pretty fans

I had some fun today making these lovelies! I used laser cut wooden fans as the base. They can be found in my etsy shop. And of course I had to make some for my own house!!

I painted this lovely classic white and added vintage pink feathers,
pearls and lace. I also added some yummy seam binding and pink flowers.

This one is my favorite so far!! :)

This one I painted a light pink and added white feathers, paper die-cuts, seam binding and vintage lace.
