Wildfires destroy Home

It's been awhile since I posted as I've been trying to get adjusted to a new life after loosing our home in the Wildfires that hit Oklahoma.  I know many from the hurricane have lost their homes and my heart goes out to you all !

Any item I had posted on here or my other blog. ( for sale have been destroyed !  Years of craft supplies and sewing machines have all been lost !
We are in the process of planning our new home, and plan to have another craft and sewing room !
Hope it won't be too soon until I can start designing again.
I do have a picture I can post of another beautiful fruit cascade ! This was recently at my cousins 25th wedding celebrations. Everything was so pretty !

Sunset and Flowers

Where is my paintbrush? I quickly snapped this picture going down the road. The skies change  quick! This was so unusual ! The clouds at top looked like big tractor tires had just ran across it.

Shabby Chic Make Overs...

I  had this wood box in my booth and it just wasn't selling, although I did have it priced very reasonable. I took it home and gave it a fresh coat of paint.   I used some decals I had in my scrapbooking supplies ,putting them on with mod podge. I sponged on ink around edges and handle. .Also used a rubber stamp for the "postage stamp" look.  Cut a piece of burlap and put inside.  Took it back to my booth,  (I was tempted to keep it. ) It sold in just a few days !!!

Beautiful Home Decor & Fruit Cascade !

 A friend of mine does such a beautiful job of decorating I just had to add these pictures ! Hope you are as inspired by these designs as I was ! Love the fruit bowl.
She has mixed the old with the new..some are keepsakes handed down to her from her family.
