Another Christmas Window

Hi friends.  Just a quick post tonight to share another Christmas window that I completed.  I shared my first Christmas window here.  I had another window frame with no glass and this one was a four-pane so it's quite a bit different than my first one.

Have you been working on Christmas crafts?

Meet Audrey!

She came into my life today and I think she is lovely...

Don't you agree? 

I was lucky enough to find her locally on Craigslist and I named her Audrey.  I think she is a size 8 but I don't see many markings on her.  I'm not sure how old she is but I calculated the woman who passed her down must have been in her 80s or 90s. 
She is not perfect, but I think she looks stunning for her age!  Her stand is adjustable and the hardware that holds her together is very old.

If any of my blog friends happen to be experts in vintage dress forms please share some knowledge!

Stencil Love

I ordered three new stencils from Maison de Stencils and they arrived on Saturday.  I was so excited to use them and I have already completed a project with each one!

I finished this tiered table:

This great wooden tray:

And this little sign:

Junk Hippy Roadshow

Mom and I made the quick trip to Arlington this morning to check out the Junk Hippy Roadshow!  We loved it and there was a good crowd so I hope all of our vendor friends sold tons!  We got to see some old friends and finally meet some blog friends in person.  I took lots of photos for you guys - enjoy!

If you like what you see go visit these talented folks:

Late Notice - November Event!

I don't know how I missed this event, but I'm so glad I realized it before it was too late!  I'm so excited because this one is close by and I think I'll be able to check it out!  There are supposed to be 110 vendors! 
Check out this Facebook page. And I noticed today that Deb and Cat Daddy will be setting up shop - read about it here.
If we go, I'll be sure to share pictures!

Quick look at completed projects!

I've been busy, busy!  Here are some of my latest completed projects:

A great side table with a large drawer - Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Linen, Antionette and Old Ochre.

Great use for a window frame with no glass.  I am NOT ready for Christmas but perhaps my customers are?

And an old drop-leaf table with two highback chairs.

Hope you have all had a great weekend - the extra hour of sleep was nice!

More treasure for your shopping pleasure!

Mom and I moved into a new booth today!  We have spaces in Grapevine Antique Mall in Grapevine, TX and in Antique Gallery in Lewisville, TX.  Both malls are open 7 days a week and both malls offer layaway.  Take a look at these photos - I bet you'll spy some treasures that should be yours!
