Meia's Tea Party

I've been wanting to do a photo session with my granddaughter, using some of shabby loveliness... Alot of the shabby yummies are from grandmothers . And some I have gathered from vintage shops.  Meia had so much fun. And of course I did also..
Bunny in background is her security, he goes EVERYWHERE..

The doll she is sharing her tea with is a doll my grandmother gave me when I was eight years old.

YUMMY!! the cookies were so yummy...

Tea is so good...
But when she is done... she is DONE!!!
We had such a good time. I wished I would of used my good lense.  But I was worried that photos would come out blurry as she moves around alot... I might reshoot this...

Hope you enjoyed our little Tea Party.

Making room for some shabby finds

I was so excited to featured at the Shabby  Art Boutique on  I just love her little delight of heaven on earth... 
I love to go junking, yard sale'n.. I found this latter back chair and painted it. Filled the seat with linens and cute pillows.  Still may hang some shabbiness on the back of the chair.
 As you know, I love dishes. I had to hang some on the wall..

 Trying to tiddy up this little area.. 
 I'm trying to add little displays through out my home..
I saw this idea on Pintrest. I had some little picture frames.

Shabby up my little studio and bits & Pieces of my home

I've been trying to add little finishing touches and redo's around my home, but mainly in my little studio.
I love dishes...china.. whatever you would like to call it..  I have little bits and pieces around my home.  This is in my guest bathroom.
 And in my little shabby studio is little bit of upcycling. The finish result for now anyways. See the basket down below.. Check how it looked before.

This is how it looked before... Not a pretty sight..
 WOW!! Now look at it... I used a vintage linen to line it with after I spray painted it.. Then of course I filled it to the brim with vintage sheets of music.

Then there's my chair I redone..With pieces of one of my grandmother's old chenille bedspreads..  LOVE LOVE it..
I just moved this.. The baby bassinet was in the floor, but I put it on top of the cabinet and filled it to the brim with burlap yummies I got from doing weddings...

 Here's a picture of the inside... so far..
I hope you have enjoyed seeing what I've been doing.. Can't wait to see what you been up too..

I'm participating in
Hop on over and check out everyone elses CREATIVE-NESS....

 I had to add my new addition.. I love, love.. Can't wait to find the perfect place in my little shabby studio to place these..
I'm putting together a little package for my daughter that lives in Atlanta a 4 hour drive.. I'll have to share her little package when I'm done. It's going in the mail tommorrow...

Junk'n finds and a little CREATE-ing.

I am so thankful for having sometime to enjoy life.  It was hard the first two weeks after selling my business.  But now I get to enjoy things again... my family, cooking, junk'n, creating..  Here is a few of my finds
I love vintage slips.
 Dishes are my weakness.
 Growing a LOVE for vintage bottles.
 I'm hoping to create some glitter from these vintage CHRISTmas bulbs. And make some cuteness out of these bottles

 Tea Cups O MY!!!
  Inspiration will come from the vintage lace
 and seam binding in jars.... O yes.. Then I created some little Valentine's holders for my sweeties..
 I hope the girls appreciate them, as much fun as it was CREATE-ing them.
Just a little peek in my little studio.. Think it's beginning to come together. 
Can't wait to share for CREATE-ing..soon.

Sharing Joy!!

Why is letting go so hard, even when you know God tells you too? Creating Again... Yay!!!

I've been so busy with Grandchildren, Family, Beauty Salon, Children's Ministry, my regular job, my husbands elderly grandparents. I haven't took time to post creations, (what little I have gotten to do) but....
 I had to make some really hard decisions, but with God's guidance He has made me let go of somethings that took my time. I feel like I haven't been able to give a 100% any wheres.  As I prayed for God to take things away that I couldn't give it up on my own, cause I loved everything so much. And by the way, I've tried to not do somethings, tried to not do so much with my time. I still accommodated my clients to ALL my time..  Then what was left which was VERY little, to my family and ministry.  So as I was praying someone out of the blue wanted to buy my salon that I haven't thought of selling, I know this is the Lord, cause of the way I've been praying and fasting.  So since we had a bad weather day at my real job, I got to enjoy a little creating..
Just some dollar store paper dollies hearts and cut out some hearts on my cricut.  Will be sharing more.. Pictures of my craft studio, We've moved and I have been trying to create me a little space that makes me SMILE...

But for now.. See you soon... Happy CREATE-ing..
