Coffee or Tea?

I have spent quite a bit of time
during the last three months trying to get organized....

I know you understand , 
as I am sure that plagues the majority of us....
unless, of course, you are my little Mama.
But that would be yet another post *sigh*

In this organizational effort,
I have completed projects with things that were
brought in literally years ago.

I am determined to clear my life of unnecessary clutter,
and if I can turn it into cash, well, 
it's that much better.

I started with all of those wonderful coffee and tea
urns that I just couldn't pass up because they
were just so beautiful.....
but then "what"....right?


We also drilled out and used an antique
Singer sewing machine for wiring as a lamp.
I have made several of these over the years,
and it is always one of my favorite ones to complete.


The urns are just the size to make just
the right size buffet or table lamp.


I love the squattiness of this one...
it's one of my favorites.


The Bakelite handles are beautiful  and remind
me of little ears :)


Then, of course, there is the standard coffee pot....
I always have to throw one of those into the mix.


Off to clear out other shelves, boxes, and storage rooms.....
can't wait to see what I find that I just had to have that I have no idea
I have now.....geez

I Think I'll Blog Again.........

Wow......I haven't blogged since November of last year...
I've been an avid Facebooker, but I have to admit I've missed it here.

So many things have happened that short time period.
I have been busy running the antique portion of my shoppe,
running my store at Canton's First Monday once a month,
creating when I can,
and loving on grand babies, dogs, and cats.

Because my new website is getting ready to go "live",
I felt compelled to document some of my activities and
creations as it is always fun to look at them all in one place.





This is an absolute favorite of mine,
and has been created from the most delicious antique and
vintage findings and embellishments.
I have only made three of this style bag
because of how time consuming they are to create...
still I adore them.



The jean jackets are most probably a "Texas thing"....
as we seem to love our denim.
Look for this jacket in the upcoming fall issue
of Somerset's Altered Couture.
I'm proud to have four items in the next issue.



Again, one of my very favorites and 
a style that just can't be duplicated.
I can be copied, but never will one look
like the next because of materials used.



And of course, all the crochet garments....
I see them all around now, but still can't get my fill
of creating new and different ones.


Then  there is our new baby....
Tucked inside the Shoppe utilizing 1,000 square feet is
my daughter's and mine new adventure/venture.


Yep, you guessed it.
It's a Princess party dress up tea room.


We book private birthday parties for 
little girls as well as big girls,
and host bridal and baby showers as well.


This officially opened in May of this year
and is just taking off for us.


I don't know whether I'm more excited about the business
or being IN business with my beautiful daughter.


The stage and all of the construction was
completed by my sweet man.
He had a stroke two weeks before the first party,
but we are getting through it.


It isn't all roses,
It isn't all easy,
It isn't all fun,
But it all has promise....

I am truly blessed.....and remind myself daily.
If you think you can......YOU CAN.

Thanks for stopping by after all this time...
I've missed you.
