Oooh la la!

I have mentioned to you before that my niece has just built a new house and we have lots of decorating to do. Well I am leaving in a couple of days to go to my sisters house and work on just that! Fun right??? Just craftin' and decorating all day,  three lucky girls!!!  Here is a little something we worked on last time I went.
I am sure you have seen these at stores in all shapes, colors and sizes. We really loved this one because of the base. When we bought it was blue, but of course we had some other plans! We started out spray painting it black and cut that bow off. Visualize here people, I forgot to take a pic.
Hmmm, we found these old lace curtain panels and started cutting strips about 6 inches wide, no real measuring here just eyeballing it. Then we started wrapping them around her and around her and when we tied the ends together it looked a little like a flower, LOVE it!!!
Isn't this cool???? She has such a vintage feel to her.
What a great shape, huh?

She needed a little corsage.
And this little added touch of one of those flowers you burn the edges, you can find out how to make them on my blog here.
This fabric is just gorgeous. My niece picked it up at Walmart when they sold fabric for 1.00 a yard. Does anyone else miss those days????
Ahhh, she is just so pretty! <3 This room is really going to come together beautifully!
I super excited about all that we have before us, keep checking back for pics! Many projects are inspired by fellow bloggers!!!
