CINDERELLA MOVIE

I have not seen the movie yet but intend to. Our Downtown Abbey, Miss Rose makes a beautiful Cinderella..........bravo!

DECORATING MODE

If I did not become a doll artist I wanted to be an interior designer.......I love to decorate. I also love bargains, I have expensive taste with a beer pocket book if you will............but I will conquer for sure.
My latest endeavor and purchase was this lamp at a thrift shop..........love those shops. My best bud Rose Portman and I go to them whenver I go to visit her..........I love, love, love this lamp.























I am doing some research to find some information on the style
and period......but for now I am trying to decide which lamp
shade I like best, I have two........I do believe I will be using
the rounded shape one..........#2 will be adding to the shade of course.


STUDIO REDO ~ PART THREE

As you seen in the previous photos I had those awful gray metal shelving units, I have had them for about 20 years and so sick of them...........hate them.
So I was on the look out for that fabulous cabinet I showed you all in the beginning...........well luck have it, on line there is a site called "Dunnellon Buy, Trade, Sell" which is where I live in Florida.
So I started surfing the site and guess what I not only found one but two............... FIRST PHOTO,
I bought online and we picked it up about 15 miles from here. I bought this gorgeous piece for only $30.00, I near fainted away, can you stand it................lucky this time.



The SECOND one you see the shorter one I bought, same place, m
aybe 10 miles from us......that one was more $70.00.......not bad.





















I was not putting those gray shelves back I only want furniture looking
pieces in there..........the next piece I robbed from our den, as we did
another project there. ( I will show that later on)
This is our old Television Unit, so its perfect for my studio. The only other
furniture piece is an old white dresser .........

STUDIO REDO - PART ONE

It all began when a friend of mine sent me this photo, and my desire to rip up the rug in my studio................what a mess, but so worth it. This gorgeous cabinet for the storage of supplies just bowled me right over, who would not love this right ?

























The first thing we had to do was a nightmare, emptying the dreaded studio.d
Oh my goodness if you  want to find out just how much stuff you have
empty your studio.......I found things I didn't even know I had.

WELCOME SPRING


My Ride


Thi is my ride we bought a few years ago.........and its red, he named this one "Lollypop" so we both have red vehicles, do you think we like RED..............haha




Gold Wing my husbands Bike


My husbands new ride he called "CANDY" he was able to get this last year. I was surprised when he bought this in red as I am the one who loves red.............we came home to the garage deck out by
our daughter Tara............here is what she did.










Truck Mail Box

 My husband and his truck mail box......here it is before he
redid it last weekend. It was really getting worn out. Before
it was WOOD. This time (the red one) he made all metal.
He has to add his post office decal. (He was a mail
man for 38 years, now hes my pool boy)heheheh.



Alice in Wonderland Paper Dolls

Here is more of my Paper Doll Obsession..........to much fun.







Marie Antoinette Room Box


I have loved paper dolls since I was a little girl.
I am fascinated with create little boxed rooms of my favorite items.
In this case I did a room box of the infamous Marie Antoinette.
This is entirely created by me, using photos from search
 engines and them printing them out onto photo paper and
creating from that point on.















Its a faux mock up of a tad of Versailles. I even
did the ceiling. Designed the walls and flooring.
Everything you see is raised and moved forward
in lines to add depth.














The top of the room is a miniature Tea Set ,
the food items are erasers with glitter added to them.





Here you will see close ups of the different items in
the rooms. I loved creating this and will be doing
 one on a Downton Abbey theme



















Here you see several photos of the outside of the room box.
This is so much fun, and very relaxing for me I have to say.
