My New Desk

There 'she' is in all her glory. My first big project of 2012. Isn't she lovely?
Colleen found her, My Dad sanded and painted her.
The applique came from
The little stool my DH gave me a few Christmases ago from the Little White House. I really liked it there because it doesn't hide the applique.
This is the paper floral picture that is on the wall next to my desk. I put it together but my friend put all the kits together for a whole group of us girlfriends. It is stunning.
And this is the little picture frame I chose for a photo of my sweetheart to sit on my desk. I love how the sunshine comes in the window through the blinds. I don't think I will need a lamp because I do my Bible study in the morning.
Make sure you go to Colleen's blog and let her know what a great eye she has for vintage finds. Thanks Colleen and Dad.

My Incredibly Talented Sister

Well, both of my sisters are talented. We learned most of our crafts from our Mom. This is a beautiful white, felt pillow from 'The Princess' made from a pattern right out of her head.
It is stunning!
I don't know how long it took her to cut out all those circles.
I think she meant it for my sofa, but I didn't want the pets on it, so I put it in my bedroom. It looks equally nice on my bed or on my chair.
Thanks Sis!

New Year - New Project

Happy New Year to all my friends and followers and folk I haven't met in person.
2012 is off to a great start for me and I have been feeling on top of the world and my Christmas decorations are all put away - a record for me! Now my house looks (naked)
My first project for the year is a new desk to work on my Bible study in my bedroom. It had to be small to fit. It has the perfect dimensions, it will sit right in the window and catch the morning sun. I can hardly wait. My Dad, one of my project managers is going to do the painting. It came already prepped, sanded and filled. How precious is that.
The desk is made, we think, of oak with a walnut veneer. I was thinking of trying the new Anne Sloan Chalk Paint on it. I will check into that on Wednesday. Of course it will be a shade of white.
I think I will keep the original drawer pulls.
I would like to thank Colleen from Vintage Home.
She located the perfect piece for us, and after a comedy of back and forth emails, we were finally able to get together for delivery. It made the wait fun. And I got to see her fabulous Christmas tree in the foyer, too. WOW! Colleen gave us a generous deal on the desk, her prices are very reasonable, and she is a bubbly, fun gal to get to know, too. Thank you so much Colleen.
OK Dad, you can paint it now.
