I promised some pictures so that's what I'm going to do.
First, my newest addition is this great shelf/cabinet. It didn't come with doors, but that's OK because I would leave them open anyway. It is a gray over red. It was so cheap I couldn't pass it up. This one was even cheaper than my corner cabinet below. :) My friend Rose asked me where in the world I was going to put it? :) She works at the shop I bought it at. I am trying to sell other pieces I have to accommodate for it Robin (to answer your question) since my house is quite cozy. A small house keeps me from going overboard. lol.
I just threw stuff on the shelves that were on the other pieces I had there originally. I'm not going to redecorate too much since Christmas is around the corner and it'll all come down anyway.
Now on to the dining room... I have added more pewter to my collection since I took these pictures the other day. That's another post... :) Now for those of you who are just starting your collections, I'm going to be very honest and say I do have reproductions in my collection. I am OK with this because it is cheaper and it gives me the look I want. Maybe in time when I win the lottery I will buy more real pieces, but for now these serve the purpose. :) Decorate on the cheap if you don't mind not having the real stuff.
My buttery... now in the dining room. No pictures of the fabric yet...lol
Like I say I have added more pewter pieces to my collection here within the last few days. I think either I'm going to have to move the whole collection elsewhere to accommodate all of it OR have it in two different locations. hmmmm....
I have also added to my fabric stash of course from the thrift stores. I try not to pay full retail if I don't have to. You all know me. I LOVE getting a good deal. Now if I could just cut some of it. I also bought some other great things today that I hope to share with all of you this Friday my next day off. I have a few special orders to do this weekend too. I have a customer who wants green flannel stockings to match her red ones she bought. I try to accommodate when I can :) Of course another apron and bonnet set with gorgeous browns yet to sew too. I LOVE when customers request certain things then let me build on it. I'll be sure to post them when they're done.
Thanks for stopping by, but my dryer is calling me so I will talk with you soon. Something about going naked isn't appealing to me or my kids. LOL.
