Shabby Chic Chicken Wire Dress Form

Dressed in her Shabby Chic Best

Remember those Chicken Wire Dress Forms that Frankie helped make me?  Well Miss Shabby, here, has been dressed up for any ShABbY CHiC occassion.  She has been paper mached, painted, mixed media collaged and is ready to go!  I have had this plan ever since we made the dress forms and just now getting around to making one. 

As usual plans and ideas changed and ......  then in the end she just turned out the way she wanted!  She was determined to have a mind all of her own when it came to her wardrobe.  The back is just as pretty, she had to have a bustle!

More close up views

Hope you have enjoyed meeting Miss Shabby. 

Miss Shabby and I will be linking up for Happy Pink Saturday, at How Sweet The Sound, be sure to go by and visit. They love pink almost as much as I do!  We will also be stopping by to party at Shabbilicious Friday Link Party, so come join us.

Stay Charmed!

Shabby Chic Books

Repurposed Books

A short post for you today before I head off to work.  Ugh..... I would rather stay home and play. 

Old torn and tattered books that I took and repurposed using lace roses, crinkle ribbons, doily and pearls.   I really love how the lace roses turned out.

Stay Charmed!

Antique Tin Ceiling Tiles

I have fallen hopelessly in <3 LOVE <3 with vintage tin ceiling tile!!! Love looking at it and wondering where it was and the stories that it could tell.  I have been making these wonderful crosses and wings out of it.  The wings I have just started making as of yesterday, so you are getting the first look. 
Frankie laughs at me because it KILLS me to cut it up.  One piece that actually matches the wings, I couldn't cut it up and so left it whole and will make it as a wall hanging of its own. 

I am linking up with Happy Pink Saturday, be sure to go take a look.  A person can never have enough pink!

Stay Charmed!

Christmas in July

Lace Wrapped Glass Ornaments

Christmas Carol- Vintage Shoe

I have started Christmas early this year, to all the amazement of my close friends and family.  I am participating in CHRISTMAS IN  JULY!  The sponsor of this event is The Fruit of Her Hands Network.   

I admit that I usually don't start my Christmas crafting until after Thanksgiving and I am still shopping up till Christmas EveWell not this year!    I have new ShABby ChIC Christmas Items listed on my Etsy site.  Will also be trying to add a few new pieces during the month while the Christmas in July event is going on. 

Thoughts of Christmas is not an easy task when it is July and  the temperatures in Oklahoma are soaring at or above 100 degrees.  Go check out all the vendors and join me in starting the Spirit of Christmas early this year.   See you there!!!

Stay Charmed!
