We are up to our elbows in projects, both school related and market related. One of the projects that turned out to be bigger than I planned was this dresser. We got it for next to nothing because some of the drawers are missing and the finish was really icky. I was envisioning it in a bathroom with towels neatly folded on the open shelves (not MY bathroom, of course, because there's nothing neat about our bathroom - But someone who lives in a home-decor-magazine-style-farmhouse might have their towels folded neatly).
But that was before I found these gorgeous baskets. They look like a delicate lace so, being the make-a-project-more-difficult-than-necessary kind of girl, I really wanted them for this piece. Can you guess how many matching baskets were at our local store? All but two. Can you guess how far we drove (on a "family adventure") to find the other two baskets? Yeah, we spent two hours on the road so that I could have the sweet baskets instead of neatly folded towels! And it's not even for my house!! Tell me I'm not the only one that goes over-board on projects going to market? Please.
I saw some paper pumpkins on Pinterest that were so darling that I had to try my own version.
(That Pinterest inventor must have known my propensity toward procrastination - I could spend h-o-u-r-s browsing. But don't tell Mr. Blessing. He thinks I'm working and is so helpful, telling the kids "Don't bother mom. She's been working at that computer all day!")
LOVE the XL silk rosettes. I have to buy more silk just so that I can have a few of these for myself.
And I'm definitely keeping one of the ruffly handbags that a sweet new friend is helping me make for the markets. She did such a great job!
We will have all these projects and more at the Kane County Flea Market this weekend. If you are in the area, come visit us in the Poultry building. But since some of the family will be working with me please do not mention taking a family adventure!
