Flea market finds

 We had too much fun at the local antique stores the other day.  Found these awesome crystals and blue bottles.  My husband picked up the glass handles for the new SEWING TABLE he going to make me with THIS!
 The base as well as the handles were thirty five bucks a piece.  Who could pass that up?

flag stamps

We went junking again the other day.  Omg.  I am a true hoarder because I bought a bunch more stuff and I don't even have my hoard put away yet!  Who could pass up a million rubber stamp flags?  Not me.

mirror project

 Found this cheap mirror at target.  They had this for five bucks and a few for forty bucks.  Nothing in between.  I liked the size and shape of this one so fixed it!
 Napkins and matt medium.  Used the center and the borders of the napkin to cover the offending plastic.
 Made a perfect addition to my little alter in the closet.  I'm sure I will add to this as I finish putting my craft room back together after it is painted.  That room is next on the list.

closet redo

 I'm having a little fun redoing my closet.  My husband really wanted the gun safe in there so I asked him if I could cover it with silk.  He didn't have a problem with that, so the ideas started there.  He offered to move all his cloths to the other bedroom, then I really had  tons more room to deal with.
 Remember Christopher Lowell and his famous decorating closet?  I took that idea a little further and display my favorite art projects for the different seasons.

 Turns out I have more art than I have cloths so I made myself a little display of the girly stuff I have made from my childhood photos.  The baskets are functional as well as beautiful.  There is actually two bolts of fabric in the biggest one, belts and lace in another, the front one is my pool basket.  I have always used natural baskets for laundry.  I have a big aversion to plastic.  

Bobbie Crystal and Bliss decided to join in on the fun.  I love having a spot for my altered bottles.  The sailors Valentines are right at home here too.  My secret little hideaway.  (If you follow my blog you can see a peek of my cornucopia of bras on the left.)

So now I need to go back to the laundry.  

Gelli print material

 All you gelli print enthusiast out there know what a HAUL this is!  I've been keeping my eyes open for different sizes of bubble wrap and found this HUGE piece just yesterday!  Those are some big bubbles right there.  Can't wait to see what it looks like with some cool circle stencils I have.
This is some gauze and lace I used last session.  Won't that be cool on some mixed media piece?
I really think it is time to do some art instead of laundry.  All day every day.  I'm finding myself deciding if I will ever wear a piece before ironing.  My garage sale is going to be good.  I'm sick of laundry and the allergies.
