Bucket Love...repeat of an old post.

What to  do with an old rusty bucket????  Why add some doilies, lace, burlap and bling of course!


I lined the inside with some old lace curtain fabric using decoupage.  These have been selling in my booth mostly to brides or wedding planners.  Although I think they are perfect for holding towels or other items.

Love the fabric label on this one.  It would be cute in a laundry room.

 Gizzie says hi to everybody.  She's been really busy bird watching through the screened in porch.
 That's it for today.  Remember to get out there and make, create, photograph, write, paint, craft, repurpose and find something wonderful and share it with us!!

New Jeanne d'Arc Style

I just had to share this lovely Jeanne d'Arc dress that arrived today!
JDL never ceases to amaze me with their lovely creations.  Each time I open a delivery from their company I am never, ever dissappointed.  


Their designers love detail and fine European cottons.  Ruffles are always tastefully done and the lace has a look and vintage feel.
Their styles are always feminine, romantic, a little Bohemain, French and Nordic...rolled into one.


The appliqued flowers on this one are individually made and sewn on the dress.  Each little flower looks like a work of art...

 Another thing about Jeanne d'Arc styles is their comfort and quality.  I just love their sweet cloth tags.  So, if you are looking for clothing that makes you feel pretty, Jeanne d'Arc is your choice.
This one is in my etsy shop.  So, if you like it I hope you'll stop by.

Angel Wings and Cuff Bracelets and JDL...

Angel Wings....oh how I love them...especially when they are painted white with a little touch of rosette bling...
 These metal wings are so pretty....
 They are so pretty, that I think I'll make some more and maybe add them to my Etsy Shop.

I also want to show you these cuff bracelets that I've created...
(kind of hard to photograph)



These are so much fun to make and embellish.  You can go crazy with all the options...





This one looks perfect for a bride...



 Of course, I always have to create one with burlap...

 I'm adding these to my etsy shop today.

I'm also very proud to be listed in Jeanne d'Arc Living's magazine as a  retailer for JDL clothing and accessories.  Never thought I'd have my name in an international magazine....even though it's small, it's big to me...




I also want to thank all of you for supporting me in my new business venture with JDL.  So many of you have ordered these beautiful clothes from my Etsy Shop and I cannot thank you enough for your support.  

I will be adding some new JDL items soon.

Everyone have a wonderful weekend!!!!
