lifting my spirits...

Happy Friday! Have you ever had one of those days when you were a little down and did not know why? Well that was yesterday for me. I decided to head over to the shop and put some new treasures in my little corner. I thought I would share with you some photos of my re-feathering... I have had these suitcases stacked with one open on top filled with goodies but decided display them all closed for a change with some new little pillow sachets... I love the pink and brown toile, crinkly ribbon with rosette and they are filled with lavender. I got them on Etsy as well as the idea for the hand stamped vintage hanger. I hung a sweet little wall pocket above it with a vintage piece of chenille peeking out... I also just finished giving an old Cushman Smoker cabinet table a coat of white paint... I definitely began to feel better as the day went on. I am so happy to have this space and always enjoy re-feathering it! I love when I bring in something new and get to "stage" it with pretties...
We have alot of movie production companies that come in often. Imagine seeing something you created on the big screen... I finally painted an old ladderback chair too... I had to shut off one of the lights since it created too much glare in the photos. I love these old enamel house numbers... We had a hint of spring last week but it is rainy and cold today. Hopefully spring will be here to stay with summer soon to follow. I have a few signs for cottages or beach houses... I still have one "Spring" sign left too. Look at this cute little baby planter with sweet roses in the wheels... These storage boxes were originally blue but, of course, I painted them white... I also have some of the lavender scented pillow sachets in a blue and brown toile... Looks like I caught the sweet little birds kissing and there is the other box I decoupaged. I also added a lovely vintage powder tin and metal powder box with original puff inside... After a few hours of fluffing (time passes so quickly when I am there) my spirits were definitely lifted and I was smiling... Peeking at my display with my little decoupaged eggs and boxes... Inspired me to come home and create these...
These were so fun and satisfying to make! They took a bit of time but I think it was well worth it. I am trying to decide if I should put them in the shop or in my Etsy shop (or both if I shift into high gear!). Well yesterday started off not too good for me but ended up being a great day! With a few more of these dress forms to make, today is looking great too (despite the weather)! I hope you all have a wonderful day and weekend!!

Everything in your little space is gorgeous! I love that white wall pocket. You did an amazing job on the dress forms! Maybe you're just ready for some sunshine:)

I got your message and saw the link to the Venice shop...oh my goodness, I can't believe I've never been to that shop!!! The worst part is we lived in Port Charlotte for 6 months last year so I had tons of opportunity to explore! Ugghhh, I missed out!

My goodness Sandi! You have been busy and I love it all!!!!! I bought a handful of hangers at an estate sale yesterday and intend to do the Paris rubber stamping too. Glad you are feeling better!!!!

Hey...I have almost the same table as you...we always called it a "humidor" and it is made with willow wood and lined in copper. Is Cushman the furniture company name?

Is this shop of your in Canton?

Everything is gorgeous! I've been having many blue days all in a row lately. Don't know exactly why -- just many things happening and not feeling quite right. I enjoyed this tour of your lovely little booth. Fluffing and feathering there would certainly lift anyone's mood. Hope you are having a great weekend. Blessings, Tammy

Your booth looks so very lovely! Makes me want to go so some spring cleaning and primping in my booth! The little dress forms are adorable too!

I finally made it over to the Wrentham Country Store and absolutely loved your darling little space filled with such pretty treasures! I admire your wonderful creativity! If ever you are in Holliston, please stop in at the "House at 755" to take a peek at my "Whimsical victorian Chic Cottage" treasures! Keep up the beautiful work!

I have had that feeling too and don't know why...probably a hormone thing. :) I love your little corner of the shop and if I was to walk in there, just know I would gravitate right too it. I miss my little shop and getting to fluff it so much. I have put my name on the list to be a part of another shop that just opened. My DH says I am a glutton for punishment but I just love it so. Happy Weekend. xo

Oh Sandi what a gorgeous space you have! So many wonderful things. How I wish I could spend about an hour in there. If I did, you would have to come back and do some more fluffing.

Thanks for the visit to my blog on WW. Sorry it took me so long to get back with you. I'm liking what I see on your blog Goodness...so many beautiful photos and what a gorgeous booth. I wouldn't know what to look at first if I were there in person. Love those pillows. They remind me of the french designs I create. Hope you are having a great weekend!

It is all so pretty! We do a lot of the same things...only I haven't for awhile...you're inspiring me to get back at it...it's those same blah feelings you're talking about...oh this time of life:)
That's cool about the A&F thing...we really are from the same decade:)
THANK YOU for all of your sweet encouragement you have been leaving for me...I am blessed!
