Well, at last, I’m here for the WHITE WEDNESDAY party, hosted by Kathleen of Faded Charm…wouldn’t this be so amazing if this fantastic party went for another 20 weeks…that would make it one full year…I ‘m rootin’ for that!!
Sorry if you came by earlier and I hadn’t posted….life ya know…Any way..let’s get my portion of the party going….
When I was at the barn I took a few shots of my area…it’s hard to get good photos at night because of all the chandeliers.., and I can only show you my area until after the show…then Katie bar the door cause I’ll show the rest of the fabulous vignettes at Matildas…
This is when you are coming into my space…not crystal clear, but again the chandeliers...
To the left I have a bed set up for all my pillows. I found this to-die-for Victorian headboard…(Arizona) and it has cartouches of Cherubs on it…Perfect for our Valentine’s show…See the panels on each side of the bed…well, they’re old sugar sacks that I stitched together and added burlap on each end. You could also use them as a table runner…
This is the cartouche in the center of the bed…it’s a really charmer!
A closer shot of the sugar panels…How fun!
Next to the bed …I got this older body form that was a foam of some sort..so I decopodged book pages on her…added some funky watch necklaces …
A vignette with some of my ironstone
A close-up..clock parts, ironstone and burlap..I love this combo
In one of my corners I have my Tatter Elegance line of clothing I am introducing this month…See the bars that they are hanging from? Well, those are two antique toilet brackets!! This was my daughter’s idea. I put a large piece of glass on top for vignetting and an old lamp rod to hang the cloths from. Underneath I found an old laundry cart from a de-funked Military Base..which is perfect for some of my linens and pillows
Another view of the toilet closet..:)
I’ve had these candlestick lamps FOREVER and these old wire lampshades…so I made a slip cover for the shades and I think it transformed the whole lamp!
Because this is our Valentines Day show, I of course had to add some hearts and pink…Died some scrim added red and white porker chips and some sweet little soap roses all on a Victorian silver tray. It set on top of a French style garden bistro set.
Of course I had to add the romance of candles on mercury glass candleholders
And a concrete angel engulfed in a sea of white feathers under a cloche
Another vignette. See the linen book? I took some old books that I had and covered them with linen and some of my tattered roses and embellished them with trinkets .
Well, that’s it for tonight. I am working at the barn all day tomorrow, so will take some pictures during the day so I can share. I am now going to head on over to all of you that are participating in White Wednesday! Hope you all had a great day!
