{my next project....}



I fell deeply in love with this
idea
{any guesses what this may be?}

I found this beauty at the Junk Bonanza
{no room to bring it home in my suitcase}



I was inspired.......
my goal this fine Saturday is to hunt down
an old dresser.....
wish me luck!

Hope your weekend is filled with nice surprises....
come back and visit me on Monday...
I have a few waiting just
for you.

That is so beautiful, Koralee! I would never have guessed and the second picture really puzzled me! I wish I could have been home to see it but being in Prague and Croatia has been wonderful.

Have a nice weekend!

All things nice... said...

Ok I'm confused is it a mushroom on the second image? Love the dresser, very girly and pretty too. Enjoy your weekend, weather is cold here in Ireland.

All things nice...

There is an antique dealer here in the Portland area that has things like this. Very beautiful. Her blog is Maison Douce, her name is Isabel. I am venturing out today to see her at an antique show.

That's lovely Koralee!
Is the floral covering on the drawer fronts fabric or wallpaper?
Regardless... just a wonderful idea!
I can imagine that in my sewing room covered in my favorite print~
but which one would be my favorite?

:D

Happy Saturday ~ Enjoy the creative energy!

love,

My goodness. I have missed so much. It's going to take me at least the next two loads of laundry just to get through all your postings here.

My fingers are crossed that the perfect chest of drawers just finds it's way to your home and all of our hearts.
