HARD AT WORK

Sorry I've been away so long. I have two garden and antique shows and one flea market to get ready for. They are all going to happen in the next five weeks, so I have been hard at work preparing, altering, creating, cleaning, buying and packing. Oh, and pricing! ( The thing I hate to do...it takes so long!) Not to mention the attention that the shop needs, and this week I will only have one day off as partner, Mary is going out of town. BOO~HOO!~~~~~~~~~~~But then, after all of this hard work, I get to have a holiday! And guess where? England of course! (Ya'll knew the answer to that one!)...BTW, IF YOU WANT TO SEE SOME GORGEOUS SITES OF THE AREA THAT I AM GOING TO IN ENGLAND, JUST GO TO WWW.VIRTUAL-SHROPSHIRE.UK.CO. Or google Shropshire, U.K.~~~~~~~~~So, the following pics are just some of the things I've been working on. I love the fabric flowers on stems! They never need water!

Hello Judy,
Thank you for stopping by and commenting on my paper crowns.
I love your inspiration with your cotton tattered rosettes as they do remind me of mine that I posted this last week but different.

This is what I love about art you find your passion and mix it all together to create a beautiful inspired home with art surrounding you daily...NOT CRAFTS! but euro flea market chic art :)

Keep inspiring us...and I will keep inspiring all as well.

Can not waite to see what you do next. Maybe mine will be wood, Hmmmm! maybe paint :)

xxoo
