OK, here's a confession. I would post more, except that I feel like I can't blog without adding photos. There, I've said it. Am I looking for an excuse? Possibly. But, truly, I find it boring to visit other blogs that don't add photos in their posts. Well, sometimes. I guess once in a while is fine. So, I either need to reconcile myself to the idea of occasionally posting sans photos, or start taking more pictures! Wish me luck.

Recent Aquisitions

Greetings! I want to share with you some great antique and e-bay finds I've aquired over the past few weeks. First is this lovely wooden doll form. I keep wanting to refer to her as "angel" rather than "doll", I don't know why. Maybe because she seems kind of ethereal? Anyway, I think she's so chic-shabby chic!

Next up is this awesome spice cabinet! I just fell right in love with it. It was already this perfect shade of robin's egg blue and I just love the look of it-so country charming. What I especially appreciate in this piece is the repair work on the back. It reminds me of what a disposable society we've become. Nowadays, I think we'd just as soon replace it rather than lovingly repair it. (I'm as guilty as anyone) These little drawers are perfect for stashing supplies and it makes a great addition to the studio.

Finally, some additions to my growing collection of vintage bling. Theoretically, these are to be used for embellishments on future products, but I'm not sure I'll be able to part with them!
