After living in my house 40 years, I no longer keep anything I can't use soon or aren't using now.
The Shadow box above was something I'd always wanted to make. I painted the shadow box pink. I put a piece of scrapbook paper in the back. I bought the little miniature pieces. The metal pieces are speckled like real cookware. I painted the white pieces, they were wood. And I decorated them. The bottom left square has an iron on an ironing board!
I was so pleased the Lord allowed me to complete this project. As I really liked it. It's going in my new sewing room.
And my computer screen in the middle.
New rods have come. (from am*a*z*on)
I always buy curtains with a weather proof backing- to keep heat and cold out, and darken the room.
Once the paint is completely dry I'll hang a curtain and fix it up more. But with the cold weather we're having the paint will take longer to "cure". So next month.
This is the "Micke" table from Ikea and it's perfect. Its also only $49.00!
Oh how I loved her! :o)
A rotary cutter. To the right my ironing board about 75 years old from our first home, left by the last owner!
Hunca Munca! With all my children I always felt like I was Hunca Munca! ;o)
This is the door to my 4' x 7' closet.
I had hoped to use a different room to sew in. I wanted SP's (group home gal) old bedroom. But we are fixing it for a new client. So I'm taking the smaller back bedroom.
17 years ago I decorated it with some stickers I had. :o)
Before she died I had no idea she had such a beautiful machine!!!
They refinished the wood.
I did use this old Singer they gave me. But the more I learned about sewing the less I used it.
I'm getting both machines serviced. And I will use them again. My Granddaughter Kitty I'm raising has her eye on my Maternal Grandma's machine. (her Great Great Maternal Grandma!) :o)
Well that's what I've been up to. How 'bout you? What's new?
Happy Creating! God Bless!
Thanx for visiting! (((HUGS)))
