I'm Loving the New Room!


I'm loving parts of the new room at the store.
(the parts that are 'done' that is.)
This is what you see when you step in the door.
(sorry for light from window.
I could not wait to take pictures to show you!

Steamer trunk, vintage clothes, shoes, frames,
and a great big satchel filled with treasures.

Do you like this little chair?
More about it later.

This is Ruby in her finest Victorian blouse.
I'll be making some jewelry for her soon.

Here is the sewing corner, under construction.
I have so much 'new' merchandise for this room
and not enough room to put it.
Well, room is big enough, just not practical display pieces.
I went for cute vignettes instead. ;-)

Love that huge picture hung on the shabby door.

This old desk is so cool.
All kinds of cubby holes to hide things.
I'm just starting on it.

Speaking of cubbies...

here is a little one on the wall.
So fun to fill them up with goodies.
Now, back to the chair.
The short and sweet of it??
It is a plastic lawn chair I made a cover for.
It took hours! But worth it for a little chair in the new room.

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look around with me.

Barb, I love, LOVE what you've done. You have such a knack for putting things together. Someone may stop in and buy the whole room to take home and duplicate what you did! Tom saw Scott yest!

Wow, I would have fun shopping in your store! I love the cubby, and I have my grandma's sewing machine, which looks very similar to yours. It's one of my favorite things! Have a great night:)
