Happy Halloween

     I found several old apothecary bottles with their original stoppers at an auction down the street. My intention was to create a few potions/elixirs etc for Halloween and a Love Potion #9 bottle for Valentine's far I only created one Bat's Brew Bottle with a Poe raven on back for Halloween...I filled the bottle with strong tea for a nice effect...the bottle sets on our kitchen window sill. So many ideas for projects...wish I could just create 24/7!  :-)

A Vignette of Inspiration

A little vignette of inspiration I created that sets on my work table. The assorted laces and bling are from various antique shop visits... the Parisian tags are from French General... and the rusty handled tray as well as the doorknobs are from Hobby Lobby. In the background you can see a little bit of my antique general store ribbon rack...a most "fabulicious" find from Adamstown, the antiques capital of the USA, which is only an hour away from lucky are we?  

Shabby Chic Altered Cans for Desk Utensils

No reason my desk at work can't be attractive...I altered these cans in a shabby chic style including beaded hatpins, tulle,  paper flowers and organza flowers, vintage lace, jute, a resin cabochon cameo, and vintage my pens and pencils live in style.
