Awaiting Spring...
It's the day after Valentine's Day and I'm already looking forward to spring. It actually feels like spring here in Texas this week. It's in the 60s and 70s!
Do you remember that cute pink cabinet I showed you in my last post? Well I found something else in that same antique mall booth, painted the same shade of pale pink. This simple little table, with a shelf, two drawers for storage and cute little glass knobs. It was very cheap and I need storage and display space, so I couldn't resist!
I love this pretty white lamp I found at T.J. Maxx a few years ago. I love how it looks like an old piece of architectural salvage, but I never like the shade that came with it. I was so happy to find this shade at the thrift store. It already had the ruffle at the bottom and I added the vintage lace and millinery flower.I forgot to show you girls this altered bottle I made. It is one of the presents I sent to my sweet mama for her birthday.
All these pretties have me in the mood for spring. Flowers, lace, pastels... I guess I'm just a spring sort of girl!
I even love Spring clothing the best. Take a look at these spring 2011 fashions I found online.
I LOVE all that pretty white lace!!! Hard to imagine wearing it as a stay-at-home mama who never goes anywhere, though.But these sure are lovely to look at and dream of wearing...I found a few cute things cute pieces of clothing at the thrift store recently but I'm not great at photographing clothing, so you may never see them. Maybe I should try them on my dress form? I'm sure I'm not the only one dreaming of spring. Let's hope it comes a bit early this year!

They're so lovely and sweet. The lamp looked gorgeous with the lace accentuated with the flower. Spring, I'm dreaming of spring too.

Another wonderful post! The lace dresses are lovely. Once upon a time, I might have looked good in them :). I think using your dress form is a great idea. You can set up all sorts of wonderful vignettes with it. I have one, and I named her Antoinette. Have a great week!. -Terri
