My latest creation...

This old window has a delciate feel. I added vintage lace as the backdrop with hand made lace pockets that I tucked a piece of old paper inside for interest, and of course, my roses...


I hope your having a wonderful long weekend sweet friends!

New This Week!
This lovely old window is loaded with old fashion charm. I added antique papier to the back panels and then I painted cream roses for a touch of feminine.
You can find this beauty in Vintage Finds of my website.

See you next time!

I love it when you find something fabulous, bring it home, and pull it all together using your favorite collections. I found this unique cabinet while antiquing at the Wrentham Country Store.  The talented girl there, Jeannie DeForge, made this charming cabinet out of an old window, iron brackets and wooden shelves.

I put this in my bedroom along side my vanity. It's perfect for storing bed linens, blankets and lace. 
 
I have to say, I tend to be less conservative in this room as far as my feminine side taking over me. Thank goodness hubby doesn't mind.  After all it's a place to dream and feel romantic.
Don't hide your pretty lace & linens. Find lovely ways to display their beauty so all can enjoy them.

Next time, see photos from my new mantel display


                            I hope your having a gorgoues Sunday sweet friends!!!
