Rummages Rummages..where for art thou...

RUMMAGES!!!??? Oh i so have that spring fever bug...and have started making my list and checking it twice...(oh wait..that's a whole different season isn't it???LOL) NOPE..i'm still making that list..but each time i look at it..it GROWS...(and that statement, too, could alude to that other season as well, couldn't it..)

It amazes me how things listed on this list changes from year to year...and how something are ever present... Anyone have anything so wanting on their list?

This year I have on my list...
is a desk chair like this...



and I'd LOVE to find a variety of these...to use in my dining room.



In our bedroom, we have an old wooden headboard...nonspecific...and I think I picked it up at a rummage many moons ago...well it just doesn't quite fit in with our beachy theme...so i'd love to come across some of these...shutters to make a headboard..



Yes, this is the time when I am going to get things done that I have had planned for quite awhile!

Come on up to our little second floor garden cottage!

Coming up the stairs you will be greeted by my revamped garden cart...(made a bag for a liner this week and got some pretty new blooms to fill the interior!)



And anyone visiting is greeted by one of my favorite sayings...for inspiration..coming or going!



I've had this birdie fabric for a bit...(it was actually a remnant...lucky me to find it...)
but it wasn't quite enough to cover these pillows entirely...

Kinda FUGLY...pillows...I picked up last summer...still new with tags...but the bullion fringe was raveling..so I clipped off the fringe...



and covered them with this birdie fabric!!!



...gonna make a birdie like the nested one below..in the medium purple and gold colors..to sit on my antique child's desk!

Our living room is sooo tiny that we use a weathered picnic table bench for a table...next up gonna paint that out and distress it...looking more and more like a garden!!!



The bit of 80 degree weather we had on this past Sunday has plunged me into SPRINGDOM...

Just look at these sweet little spring felted works of art... (CLICK ON 'LITTLE SPRING FELTED WORKS OF ART") oh goodness they are sooo cute aren't they?? VIVIAN DOES SUCH A BEAUTIFUL JOB!!!

I have a had a bit of time...to do a bit of art/crafting myself...I drafted this pattern for this cute little birdie....and the nest she is looking over...is done in the same fashion of the previous nest I had made for Danielle's swap. I just love the uniqueness...of each of them!



...and this little doggie is in heaven holding this more-than-adequate bone!



Couple more things crossed off my proverbial TO DO LIST!

On to the next project(s)!!! AND HOPEFULLY RUMMAGES COMING SOON!!!

as always...BIG HUGZ til next time!
