My Weekend at Glitterfest and Country Roads

Sharing my wonderful weekend at Glitterfest
joining Kathleen's always beautiful
at Faded Charm Cottage

Doing a show is always a race to the finish...
I added vintage hand mirrors to this silver chandelier!

Painted, reupholstered, and added this vintage crinoline
to this sweet vanity stool...

Added a linen skirt to this vintage dressing table...

packaged lavender and lemon verbena (my fav) soaps...

made a chalk board out of an old clock frame...

Chalk painted (I heart chalk paint) this wonderful coffee table,
rewired and made a ruffle lamp shade for the sweetest little lamp,
took a class on belt making with Deb Hodge...

made a jar chandelier using this rusty plant ring, wire, and some crystals...
painted and filled this gum machine with vintage pearl necklaces.

Soldered an abalone shell onto a silver stand, painted and distressed a vintage mirror...

Chalk painted and reupholstered this wonderful chair...

made this gold vintage hand mirror lamp using old lamp parts and crystals...
so as you can see, it is always a race to the finish and I always seem to walk
out the door leaving behind so many ideas unfinished.

Not to worry!!  This year I've been blessed with two wonderful spaces at
and a permanent place to take all the things I love...

This space I share with my amazing friend Kate...

This is my front space at CR...
I can't even begin to explain what a wonderful feeling it is to be able to
participate in some wonderful shows and then to know that all your
treasures will have a place to go...and not end up in storage...LOL!

so here they are in all their glory...

A big Thank you to Diane and Sheryl for doing such an amazing job putting
together for all of us to participate in...and to my neighbors Rita and Blanca

Thank you to Sue and everyone at "COUNTRY ROADS"
I am so proud to be a part of Sue's "BIG" family

Hoping that you will join or visit Kathleen at
her always beautiful "WHITE WEDNESDAY"
Thank you for hosting and inviting all of us to join in the party!
