Last minute projects for the Lakewood show.......

I've been pondering on these dresser mirror frames for so long......but I finally decided to stick with the chalkboard use, even though it isn't very original! It's just such a hot seller, and since I don't have one yet for myself, if it doesn't sell-- I'll just keep it!!


With our Lakewood Antique show starting Friday, I only had a couple of hours today to get a few projects done, and this lamp collage plant stand was one of them. I was just having a little chippy/rusty fun--can't go too long without dismantling some old lamps!!

Don't forget to stop by the show this weekend and say HI!

Here's wishing you a great show this weekend, and congrats on your nomination. I have actually spent my morning going thru your blog to the beginning, and am just amazed at all you do. It has been a bittersweet journey; however, since so many memories have been conjured up from many years back. I used to always shop (and occasionally set up)at the old Lakewood and I did the Crabapple show twice a year for quite a while....so glad to see it's back and running! I know (well used to know) Cynthia very well and Debra from Vienna. Are they both still at it? I miss the tallow!

Oh, I need a trip to Atlanta...I still have many friends there to visit.

Well take care...you are one creative and awesome gal!
