New Projects Getting Done for Spring Boutique & Decorating!

This past week was the worst! I got the flu and was in bed for one week! I also, lost my voice completely for 5 days! For those of you that know me, you can guess how hard it was for me!!!! But, like a trooper I'm on the mend. So, the past 2 days I've been putting together my "Junk Babies" little bits and pieces of junk and whatever, to put together these little junk people. I first noticed these on a trip to Spokane,WA. about 4yrs. ago. Here's my version!
Let me know what you think???

They are still a work in progress! The names I picked out for these 2 are "Tartsy Trixie and Little Liza. they should be finished by weeks end. Another one will be born this weekend. I feel the pains coming on! hee,hee!
I also, pulled out some more Spring & Easter decorations. Just a few to show you! Buffet in my kitchen.

Next week, I'll be doing my dining room. Adding more Spring goodness.
Besides decorating here's a sneak peeekk at more items for my Vintage Spring Sale (May 7th)! More to come!!
These are jars covered with vintage post card images. The inside is filled with buttons,lace,paper and ribbons.
Next, little birdies! Great for Mother's day!
And, then there is this dressform! I can't believe I took on this project! Yikes, I stayed up until midnight stamping this fabric and
cutting it into strips before I added it to the form! I can't tell you how long it took me! (but it was long!!!!) Now, I just need to embellish it with lace and and a floral bits.
Well, there it is! We'll see how it looks when it's finished. I hope I didn't go crazy with the pics! I'll show more finds next time.
And this week I'm excited! I'm leaving to San Francisco to the Alameda Flea Market! I'll be looking for some goodies for all of you! Wish me luck!! So, now it's time to decide what's for dinner tonite my husband will be home soon! shhh, I'll tell him I've been slaving over the stove all day! NOT!!!
Have a wonderful week, stay safe and have Spring Happy thoughts!!!
I'll show you what I find next week!
Much Junk Love!!

  4. Hi Eloise, looks like your having a blast putting those babies together. Love your Easter decor, especially the egg topiary cuz it's got my favorite blue. It's so funny, I did something very similar with my little crowned bird. I can see how that dress form consumed a lot of your time, it's really looking beautiful! Lastly I just want to say how jealous I am of your shopping trip to San Fran, lucky lady.
