Projects Completed

Do you ever have those projects that you buy with good intentions of working on right away, but.....they get pushed to the back of the building? Then 2 years later you come across them and say....oh I forgot I even bought those! We have been trying to clean out our building for about a year now, and we just keep pulling out things that need some TLC.

We have been doing a lot of industrial furniture at shows lately, so I thought this metal dresser, desk and side table would be a good addition to our booth in Nashville. Even I was surprised at the results of how the pieces turned out! The first picture shows the dresser and side table. I didn't take a picture of the desk, but it had several coats of paint on, green, brown, black, red and white! It took several coats of stripper and a lot elbow grease to get these pieces to this point!

Well, my youngest daughter showed up about the time I got the desk finished, dresser was already done and she had a fit over the pieces! She bought the dresser at a discounted price and I told her the desk could be her Christmas, she was elated!

Suddenly it was back to the drawing board to find something to take to the show! We pulled some more things out and got them finished in time to be loaded! Come on out the the Tailgate Show at the Nashville fairgrounds Oct. 30th and 31st and check out the goodies!

Who is it?

Can you guess who this is, fast asleep in our humble little abode? Was it the light or was she cold? Why in the world did she have her head covered up?

Update: Yes, it's Lauri! I don't think she likes the light! Sweet Lauri is not a morning person!

Booth Redo

Sunday I decided my old booth at Bennies Barn had to go! I took everything out of it and started over! I don't usaully have much luck selling white stuff, but I was so tired of looking at a booth I didn't like! I'm real happy with the results.

What can I say, I LOVE WHITE!

Need I say more? This is one of my favorite stores in Texas! It is a feast for the eyes! I wouldn't miss seeing this store for anything. I took these pictures a few day before the party. As you can see no people, so I missed getting to take photos of all my friends.
They stock a lot of dark English furniture in the store now, but you know me I still drool over the pale things! Hope you enjoy the tour!

We're Home!

Well it's been a wild ride for the last 2 weeks in Texas! I have never seen so much rain in all my life! As a matter of fact we hitched a ride home on Noah's Ark! My booth flooded on Monday night before opening on Tuesday morning! Then to top it all off we loaded in a torrential down pour of rain for 4 hours! In spite of all that, we had a good show! We had a few of days of fabulous weather.

The highlight of my show was meeting the famous Corey Amaro of Tongue in Cheek! She is the sweetest thing and cute as a button! I have followed her blog for some time, but I never dreamed in a million years I would actually meet her! The first picture is Corey with the 2 Theresa's!

And the slip dress I am wearing is a creation by Gypsy Brocante. I was so excited to find one that actually fit me! You know
Queen size! Go check out her web site, oh I forgot to mention the dresses are really affordable! Update: I just figured out she has a blog as well! Gypsy Brocante!

Here are a few pictures of my booth, hope you enjoy them!
