Swing into Spring

   Since I am not quite ready to show pictures of  the great treasurers we all got in Texas ( most of them are being vignetted for this month’s  Matilda’s Mouse show on April 23,24,25)  I thought I would get back into the “swing” of blogging by sharing some pictures from our March Spring show that I was able to recover from my computer.

I just love using old statues in my decorating.  This one was an especially sweet one.

Another great old statue/lamp.  See the “lamp shade”?  It’s actually an old square wire basket from a store display..fun, huh?

I found and old iron crib and used it as a day bed for displaying some of my pillows.  See the cream colored one in front in the center  left?  Well, it was from a vintage wedding gown!

This is the vanity I brought back from my trip to Phoenix.  I slip covered and older ottoman with a new French Script fabric (this one is cream with brown scripting) On the ottoman is another cream colored pillow that I made from a 1920’s wedding dress.  The ruffles on it were just amazing!

I had fun with this great old double-pained window…but boy was it a chore to get up on that table!!

These old screen doors are a favorite of mine.  I got them from an old estate in La Jolla.  On this old park bench are a few pillows from my Spring line.

Nothing better that Johnnie Jump-ups in and old whiteware dish for Spring decorating!

Well, that’s about it for now, but stay tuned as I will be taking some pictures at the barn and posting what I can in the next few days.  Happy Sunday!

Hi Gale,
By chance are those screens still available or are they props? I hope to get to Matilda's have only been once :)

Smiles,

Very creative! Sad about the 1920s wedding gown though - being relegated to a cushion!! Love the pink ring box at the front- if that's what it is.
