april foolin'...

Time is running out for me to be prepared for the event at the shop.  I am so happy that it is snowing and raining and windy out today so I can stay home and finish up some last minute projects.  Ok, I am April Foolin' you on the happy about the weather part, but I really do need to stay home today and do some painting!
I have been very busy working with the "stuff" I have and trying to be creative...
I gave a few old soda crates a new look...
In between coats of paint drying I have been working on my display ideas...

Hoping it all comes together...
Trying not to go crazy and enjoy the whole process!

I will be joining in on all the fun over at Debra's Vintage Inspiration Friday.  Thank you for stopping by today and have a great weekend!

Oh, did I mention that I got Fifi's book...
FAB U LOUS!!

If you like Fifi's book, maybe you can go to Amazon and write a positive review because I don't think Amazon is being very kind to her.....

Oh, your new creations are gorgeous Sandi!

I found Fifi's book on Amazon for around the price you mentioned BUT...I ordered new bedding yesterday and hubby doesn't know yet! He'll know on Monday when it arrives:) I might order her book in a couple of weeks after the shock of new bedding wears off hubby.
