over the top with excitement...

Happy Friday everyone! It is Show and Tell again over at My Romantic Home and I am over the top with excitement on what I am sharing with you all today!! Yesterday I went in to the shop to add some new treasures to my little corner. As usual I take a peek in everyone's booth to see what is new. That is when I saw her... She was just standing in the corner keeping watch over Maureen's lovely booth. Mary Ellen had told me about her on Sunday and she was right, I just love her! Thank goodness she was still there! So, Miss~soon~to~be~named~something~fabulously~french came home with me. I am going to enjoy her at home for a while and then she will keep watch in my booth with a wonderful display of vintage inspired jewelry. Of course she needed to pose around the house a bit... She can be shortened for a table top or stand tall and proud... I thought about leaving her at the top of the stairs to greet Jim and Jake when they got home but knew how that would go over... Then I wondered how she would look in my Paris Hotel Suite... Or in the Princess Suite... I really should do a post on the Princess Suite before she comes home for the summer, so stay tuned! Eventually she ended up in my room. Now I call it my room ~ some people call it their craft room, work space, office and so on. My room sounds blah and I am not a fan of the others either...what do you call the space where you create? Anyway my room is where she will nest for now... Since something new was coming in to my room I had to tidy up from all my recent projects. Then this led me to change a few things around. I know that you have seen a little bit of my room when I did this post, but since I tidied up I thought I would show you more. My little collage now hangs near Vivienne and I filled her bathtub with packages of sweet vintage cards that spell out "Bonjour" and "Paris" that I got from Sandi over at Wayside Treasures ~ she packaged them so nicely I hate to open them... She even gave me an extra "S" which I tucked in among my little printer's tray filled with vintage rhinestone earrings and pins... The lovely ladies painting that used to lean kitty corner above my chair finally hangs on the wall... I just used a matalesse coverlet on my Mom's old wing back chair. I like to relax there sometimes and catch up on my magazines. I also finally framed the photo of my Mom and Dad from their honeymoon. Jim hung a shelf for me to hold my little decoupaged mannequins that are in my etsy shop... I would like a mirror to hang just above the old salvage piece of cabinetry... Wow, I didn't realize how long this post is getting. I have shown you the relaxing part of my room ~ I guess I will save the working part for a post next week. Well thank you all for stopping by and thank you Cindy for hosting today. I am also over the top with excitement to be off camping this weekend! I hope you all have something exciting planned too!

Hi Sandi,
I love your new find and I think she looks fabulous in any room! I have an old dress form in my craft room and for some reason I called her Shirley and it has stuck. Shirley is currently sporting a vintage hat, a vintage lace collar and some jewelry...she's quite the looker! I love the look in your room...love the whites.
Have a great weekend.

Sandi, I looove the new lady in your house, she's just perfect! I have two of them and will share them soon! My MacGiver turned one of my ladies into a lamp, she wears an old floppy hat as a shade, one of my neighbors told me they thought a lady was looking out my sewing room window...Debbie @ Cottage Hann~Me~Downs

Oh you lucky girl, I am so happy for you. I have been trying to find one of these for a few years. After seeing your post, I am sure it will happen one of these days.

Hope you are having a wonderful weekend of camping. Your dress form was a great find! And looks fantastic in YOUR room. What a beautiful room to create in. I spied a lovely cross-stitching behind your purchase in the booth -- I love samplers and that one looks like it is really nice. Happy May Day to you! :) Tammy

Have a great weekend!

Sandi I loved the peek into 'your room'. It is such a beautiful space. I always love to see places that other crafters make all their magic happen.
Your new manny is great and I know she will be a wonderful display piece in the shop.I will check back to see what you decide to call this beauty.
hugs
