Refurbished Shelf Cabinet

BLOGRefurbished shelf cabinet

I found this online the other day on the polka dot closet blog and just had to share it with you all. See how pretty you can make something with just a little elbow grease, paint and wallpaper?
SO pretty!

Latest Vintage Window Creation & BIG SALE in my Etsy shop!!

I just LOVE doing these old windows. Not just the artwork, but the fact that something old-(and usually going to the landfill)- gets a recycled/refurbished/renewed life with beautiful artwork.

(This one may look uneven, but the fact of the matter is,I had to adjust the pattern to be right, and NOT go by the handle placement on the window, because the handle, in fact, is NOT in the middle of the window. However it is not very noticeable. I just left it as it was instead of taking off the handle and replacing it where it should have been. Obviously, whomever did it, did not pay much attention to detail, or they would have measured for the placement of the handle to be in the exact middle of the window.I also could have taken it off completely and filled the holes and sanded it,but it didn’t really bother me, so I just left it like it was.

I can’t wait to start on another one, however, it will have to wait until after the holidays. I hope to get up enough of a collection to have a show, with plenty of them for folks to choose from. I have some real pretty Tiffany patterns, so that may be the next one I choose. I have ALOT of patterns,so,I will just have to figure which one I want to do next.I have 2 more small window with 4 panes,another one just like this one,and several larger windows as well, so there are plenty of options where my pattern sizes and window sizes are concerned!

 I am still looking for a pattern like the ones in church windows.I may end of having to make my own pattern on that one.They look SO lovely on a  windowsill,where the light comes through,but I like them to be just as pretty when the sun goes down!Some people like to hang them on their sun room ceilings,and they are also lovely on a mantel,or hung above it,but the whole thing about them,at least to me is, you really want one placed so the sun shines through it to get the true effect of “stained glass”.

Newest listing in my Etsy shoppe….! Pretty vintage drinkware!

When I found these on one of my buying trips, little did I know the amount of time and energy it would take to find out some infomation on these beauties!!!

SHABBY CHIC TO THE CORE!!

 

I finally found an expert whom gave me the information I needed to begin another search.

These are obvioulsly very rare in the marketplace! And, if any more remain, they must tucked away in someones china cabinet or attic! 

I would love to hear from anyone who has seen any of these (I only found ONE online) or anyone who owns them.

The Jeanette Glassware line of this pattern calledNational” was abundant in the clear glasses, but not in this flash painted shabby pink and green! I did manage to see one that was dark blue, and one like these, but that was IT!

I even searched the links that I keep that sell antique glassware like this, as well as Ebay,etc. and like I said, I only found one glass like these.

Except for few very minor flaws, they are in perfect conditon. Whomever had them before took VERY good care of them. I can just see them on a table serving iced tea or cocktails at some one’s summer party…they are just LOVELY to me!

Very heavy glass, which is what has probably saved them from breakage! They don’t even have ANY chips or cracks for glassware of this age! They must not have been used very much, if at all!Lovely ribbed pattern,flash painted in frosted pink and green, They are shabby chic to the core!!

Another lady customer that was at the counter in line where I purchased them loved them, and said she wished she had seen them first!! She looked amazed, and said she didn’t see them or she would have gotten them for sure! Glad I spotted them first!!!!

She also said that she had seen some like them at some hotel somewhere or other a long long time ago. As it stands now, I would love to hear from any of you if YOU have seen any of these at any time?!?!?! Lucky find for me it seems!!

don’t you love them too…???

Working hard on other things too that I hope to get on Etsy soon. Some lower cost items I’m working on,

A friend just sent me alot of craft supplies,etc. in the mail for my upcoming birthday next Monday.

I sure hope she knows how much I love her and APPRECIATE the generous and beautiful gifts that she has sent to me over the YEARS…….!! I owe her alotso much….for years of giving……friendship…gifts,ideas,confidence,inspiration. She’s the one that first encouraged me to start this blog, and I don’t think she really knows just how much I appreciate her for ALL ot it……but I DO !

Have fun and go create something today!

If I don’t get off of here, I’m not going to get anything done today!! LOL
