My weekend finds said" Spring!"

I have some sewing to do...I found these great vintage sheets and bedding that I will turn into a slipcover for the loveseat in my studio. Here I am just trying to see what I like where.
This was just a little cut-out that was with all the frames....frames that I resisted...such trouble resisting frames! I have two on the studio table waiting for content!
Joan Walsh her....
Anscoflex II my dear sweetie spotted upside down in a box...just waiting for me!
Lots of needlework for little money...that put a spring in my step.....

Two new albums...worlds apart, right?
Favorite glue gun oh so in package oh so good...
Jars of glitter...for a bright shiny day.

Sorry some of the pictures were a bit of a blur ....not in a good way blur either. I was to lazy to put my camera on a tripod and I refuse to shoot on auto...that's what you get when the lighting is low and you have a bit of a shake. Now let me go peak to see what others have uncovered.

Remember when....

I loved making collection boxes from a shoe box and tissue paper wrapped around the end of a pencil dapped in would place the box on your school desk and classmates would come by and drop Valentiens into the box. stow away in a corrner to open each card to see who favored you so sweet......
Will you be my Valentine?

sneak a peak...

So, to have the garage studio to myself....I sent dear sweetie off to claim a Slipper chair I found on was screaming to shed its velvet dress for a more comfy burlap...and I was listening!!! To the garage I escaped paint and Pandora in hand.......(Loggins & Messina radio)
Now remember this is just peak
there is a whole inspirational story that will enjoy your peak.....


Sunday by myself....

I'm spending the morning blog surfing. Waiting for the sun to find its way to the garage to share some much needed heat. I see from my perch on the love seat in my studio that Mr. Sunshine has broken through the tree line. I have four pieces of furniture that I am working on in the garage. Today I'm working on getting the paint sprayer to work....these old bones don't do well on the cement floor!

An aversion to white...really!

So my vision for this beaut is chippy white, complete with vintage hardware. Stop....shouts my dear sweetie. Did you feel that breeze as my head snapped around! What? You're not painting that...I will keep it before I let you paint it! Now he is not one to give an opinion on how I repurposed an item, so why now. The truth be told I think he wants this for his very own! Now mind you I have offered more than once for him to add it to his study. He is stead fast that he does not want to keep it. So, stay tune will it go white or will he keep it?

This sweet little shelf is headed for The Depot At Gibson Mill.

Sunday chores...Work on ROD journal

So I started this Remains of the Day journal back in Oct. or maybe even further back. Then life interrupted. I'm trying so hard to get back to pre-heart-attack mode. So my Sunday chore (using the word chore, lightly of course)was to stitch in at least one signature into my journal.

here are a few pages. I hope to add some of my photos to my journal. This means they have to come out of the camera and on to paper. That will be a good thing. I just notice on my Iphone I have over 1000 pictures. They are safely uploaded to Picasa, I already learned that lesson!

This one has a cute little pocket

another little see through pocket. I must say creating this journal sure makes you look at trash a little different. Now I am off to finish three more signatures for my journal. A little 60's and 70's on the record player!

I want one of these!

When I saw this I made my husband backup so I could take pictures....and drool! I have wanted a panel truck for longer than I can remember.


When I was growing up in Orange County California we had a Helms Bakery truck that would come by in the mornings. It was a yellow panel truck. If mom was in a good mood she would let us go out and buy donuts.

The driver would open the back of the truck and pull out trays of donuts...what a treat!
