Let It Snow

Good Morning!

Typically I would be at work right now but because this is what I woke up to this morning......
I am at home, happy to not be out driving in the mess.

Knowing we were going to get hit with the storm, I made sure I got to the fabric store yesterday to get material for the window treatment for my bedroom makeover.  Hopefully by days end I will have the curtains hanging in the room!

I'm hoping to post the finished room on Thursday. 
Until then, here's another sneak peek of what I've added to the room.
I decided that my dress form "Shirley" was not getting utilized in her previous spot in my studio.  I also needed something with some height in this corner of my bedroom and she was the perfect accessory.  The shelf on the wall was a recent $10.00 find.  I painted it white and accessorized it with some of my smaller collections.  The chair was a $6.00 garage sale find last summer.

Well, I'm off to see if I can remember how to use my sewing machine!
Have a great day.

Jane

  4. Lovely! I have a quick question. I bought an old wooden tool box before I had my surgery in December. It is a dull red, but I wanted to paint it white and rub some paint off so the red shows through in some places. I've never painted wood before. Can you tell me what I need to do?? Do I need to sand the box? What kind of paint should I use that will allow me to rub some off in the end.

    Thanks for your help.

  7. Hi Jane, I like the way you are decorating. We have the same as you and it is still coming down. It is a wonderful way to hibernate instead going out into the bad weather. It is still coming down and the temperature is staying right around the 32 degree mark. I hope the branches don't break under the snow. Enjoy your day. Your Missouri Friend.

  12. Snow? I wish I could see one flake - just one and I will be satisfied. I once put a dress form in the corner of our bedroom and scared my husband. Looking forward to the reveal.

  20. Love Shirley...she looks great in there!! I have a dress form that I would like to display somewhere in my home, but she is not in that great of shape. Thinking that I need to fix her fabric somehow.
    Your snow is heading our way. Stay warm and happy sewing.

  21. Don't you love snow-days when you have enough craft supplies to keep you busy? Above all else - crafting supplies. I can always whip up something good to eat with what's in Mother Hubbard's cupboard.
