Shabby Chic Mannequin

I have the cutest busty mannequin in my Shabby Chic at Cadwell's flea market booth!
I shop tag sales and resale shops for my clothes and I love to share them with my vintage girly!
She is looking oh so fabulous with her handmade lace rosettes!
 I made homemade chocolate cupcakes with homemade frosting and rasberry swirl! 
 I have been following a whole foods diet and after eating just one of my yummy treats, that was enough!

I also made this cute little banner for my booth, I cheated and used a bed skirt (so I didn't have to sew)
   then added the pretty pink ribbons and ties!
I pictured it on my mantel, but it is a bit large...still pretty and Shabby!
~giggles~
 As always I am a hopeless romantic and the pink and white bloom forever in my heart! 
Have a beautiful and blessed weekend!
I will be partying with 


Big Squishy hugs,

Growing a lace garden

Today in my garden I grew lace creations!
Dainty lace curled around roses,
decorating hangers,
embellished lampshades, 
lighting the path for romance and beauty!
I have been blessed to be feeling better, so I decided to do what I love!
I pray I can continue to create.
 Oh the soft loveliness of lace and roses!
All prettied up and ready for my flea market booths!

I will be partying with the darlings over at

French Artist Jean-Gabriel Domergue

Domergue
 Lately, I have been immersed in poetry, music and art! 
Below is a rambling I pinned yesterday...ENJOY!
 
 In my dreams
we dance,
whirl and spin.
Softly taking my arm
in and out
moving freely,
lightly,
rain falls 
in our path 
it kicks under our feet
we drink
cooling
loving
as we move
slipping over the water.
How you hold me,
gathering
loosely
pressing your face to mine, 
your hands are strong
and when you let me go, 
it is never for long.
Always loving,
Always coming back for me...

Imagine my excitement when I stumbled upon this French painter! 
Ooohhh la la! Beautiful colors and glamour!
Biography of Jean-Gabriel Domergue~Domergue was born in Bordeaux and studied at the École nationale supérieure des Beaux-Arts. In 1911, he was a winner of the Prix de Rome.[2] From the 1920s onward he concentrated on portraits, and claimed to be "the inventor of the pin-up".[citation needed] He also designed clothes for the couturier Paul Poiret. From 1955 until 1962 he was the curator of the Musée Jacquemart-André, organising exhibitions of the works of Van Gogh, Toulouse-Lautrec, Goya and others.
Domergue was appointed a Chevalier of the Légion d'honneur.
He died 16 November 1962 on a Paris sidewalk.[2]

I am enchanted by the colors and beauty of his work! 
Have a lovely weekend and much love to all of those devoted fathers!

My Shabby Chic Booth

Hello my lovelies! 
Here in small town USA , summer is here and 
our tourist season is in full swing!
 The owners of our flea market built this super duper cool 
arbor out of old ladders and added the neat signs and garden boxes to each side!
 I added and old door with a hook to the corner of my big booth!
Mirrors, old windows, ball jars and frames have 
been flying out of my booth like hot cakes!
I love vintage glamour!
I hope you all are enjoying your summer!
I will be joining 
PS~ I adore all of your comments, I do my best to visit back, but due to some health issues I am not always able to sit at my computer for long periods.

Big squishy hugs,
xoxo

Shabby Vintage Window

Hello lovelies! 
Summer is here and I am a busy mommy with my wee ones!
My flea market booths are also very busy.
I had an old window in my booth that would not sell ( I only had $5 on it) but it did have a chip in the glass.
With a pretty patina, I could not let this little gem go to waste...so home it came with me for some TLC!
My faux mantel has a couple of electrical outlets that I like to keep hidden and this pretty vintage window fit perfectly!
Yummy chippiness and soft shabby fabric...ooohhh la la!
I am off to do some junkin!
If you have a chance stop by and say hi to one of my favorite bloggers...
She is a super talented lady with a heart of gold!

I will be partying with
