This is a door hanging/baby announcement that I made her from antique tin ceiling tiles. She hung it on the hospital door and it now hangs on the baby's nursery door:
The first tin says "It's a Girl", the second is the baby's name, and the third is the birth info.
This is a frame I personalized and then embellished with a bow and a vintage rhinestone brooch:
These are some burp cloths my mother-in-law made and embroidered:
Of course I have to feature my Fleur De Lis stained glass lamp in the living room:
I scored these two babies for $1 each at an estate sale a couple months ago. I am on an endless search for a black drum shade for the white one so I can use it in our office. I was originally going to spray paint the wicker/rattan looking one for the office, but I think it is too large and it is going back into the garage sale pile.
Finally, here's a couple photos of the chandelier makeover I did. My best friend wanted a fancy chandelier for her little girl's room, and she had this old one just hanging out in the garage, so I spray painted it pink and added more colored crystals.
I have more favorites, but I don't have any more good photos, so I'll stop there. I have run out of spots for lamps in my home, but that doesn't stop me from shopping for them! I can't wait to browse all the other blogs and drool over more fabulous lamps!

This was my dresser when I was a little girl....when I got my first "single gal" apartment, my mom stripped it and I painted it black. Once I got married and in a house, I replaced the knobs, painted it white and distressed it to match the china cabinet.
That's it! We normally eat in front of the TV (gasp!) but it's so nice to have this space when we have company or when I need to drag out my sewing machine!

Of course these vintage illustration pug button magnets from ButtonsForBreakfast caught my eye (but they are gone now since I bought them yesterday!):
I could go on for pages and pages, but I'll stop there! If these cute little pug faces don't brighten your day, I don't know what will! Take a break from your day and peruse Etsy.com for items featuring your favorite fur-baby.
Coming tomorrow....another edition of "Show Us Where You Live"!

And one she made for herself:
And here is the one I made for my Etsy shop:
I love the distressed look, it really gives the frames an elegant yet shabby chic feel. I think these would look great in a living room or hanging in an entry way with other family photos. I've been moving mine around all week trying to find the perfect spot!
