Working on some projects for my Holiday Sale!

Here are some things that I have been working on, for my Holiday Sale! Two wooden lazy susans, an old silverware box, and 2 wooden pcs. with moulding.
I painted all susans cream added burlap trims and buttons, as you can see i have been making glittered burlap roses. I will be adding those to a lot of my holiday projects.

 I added this wooden do-dad to the moulding piece and painted it cream.

I've been crazy for burlap lately!! I love making these roses. And I am making these burlap wreaths with lace,vintage bling and some vintage corsage bits!! and I added a stained tag. I'll try to show more things in the weeks to come.  Thanks, for stopping in today and taking a peek! Have a great weekend and happy junking!!! Eloise

On, Saturday a beautiful day at Christie's fab studio!  Here's a photo of Jennifer, Evon and Christie. It was nice to see all the great vendors and friends. Lots of wonderful finds!!
I purchased this blue cabinet from these sweet gals!! "Bats and Buttercups" from the photo it doesn't look blue. But, when I got it home it was too blue, so I took on the process to re-paint it!! I'm a creamy girl! It looks perfect in my LR. These gals also had some darling fun Halloween decorations, I couldn't resist!! See, here's the cabinet, I love it!!  Those are the only photos I was able to take! My CAMERA died!!!!! I also, purchased a great burlap bag from Cynthia, Lil Urchin Fabrics.

Today,  I decided to dress this bodice that I purchased in San Francisco, at the Alameda Flea. If you have never gone to this flea market, it's a must . I LOVE it.  This bodice is not old and I purchased it without a stand. I like the vintage look of it.
 My husband added this old lamp base for the stand. It just needed to be cut  the right height. Do you like it??
 Ok, so I'm getting her dressed. A black slip that I purchased in Spokane WA, at the Farm Chicks Show!! ( another must if you've never been.  Lots of yummy eye candy!!
Here's a closer view, I like to hand my jewels some bought and some I made. I have this in my entry way Hello!!  Oh, any suggestions? she needs a name?
So here she is, this is the apron I made when I did the Chateau de Fleurs at Christie's in Fallbrook.  It looks better on her,hee,hee!  That's all for now! Have a safe Holiday!!!!!
