What Happens in Vegas...

...stays in Vegas because I was probably sleeping when it happened...smiles. I spent a few days in Vegas this week with my sons. It was great to be all together in one place for a change. We took the opportunity and had some family photos done. These are a few of the photos. Aren't they handsome!

A Vintage Wooden Screen...Hmmm

Well...I was over in Bonham, Texas a couple of weeks ago and picked up this vintage wooden screen. I am looking forward to dressing it up to hang on my bedroom wall. Isn't it LOVELY!

Now let's catch up! Here are some bedroom transformations (remember...new apartment).

First...a "faux" headboard fashioned from a metal wall accent purchased for 15 bucks at one of my favorite stores. Loved the rust...but painted with "oyster" acrylic paint and distressed to "flow" with the bedroom theme.

Next...I redecorated this lamp...yet again. I painted the base silver...added lots of tulle to the lampshade and a distressed fabric flower and a row of ribbon. Finshed up by framing a piece of vintage jewelry in a frame found at a garage sale for 25 cents.

These colorful ladies were made to use as part of the centerpiece for a Women's Fellowship. Here are some work in process pictures and some final pictures of the "ladies without a voice".

Are You Still There?

I know! It has been 9 months since my last post! Are you still there? I hope so.

In my last post, I was on my way to the Tim Holtz cruise the "Artful voyage" to the Mexican Riviera. It was WONDERFUL!!! Tim and his entire team are so gracious!

So let's spend this week catching up...briefly.

I remain a creative spirit. I will share some of the projects from the recent months. I moved to an apartment 3 months ago (until I find a house) in order to have more creative space...long story. My recent creativity has been associated with getting settled in the new space and unpacking boxes that have been in storage since my move from sunny California.

I have a nice patio space and side yard. Here is some of the patio creativity.
First, my Mom found this Singer sewing machine base at a second store about 5 years ago and never did anything with it. I added a boot tray, a few plant and touches. I love it!

I planted a container vegetable and herb garden (has to be able to move to the house easily).

A few other patio pics...

Next post...African Art Dolls.
