Its been an all night steady rain, something we need so bad. Its been such a dry September that has left everything looking either droopy or dead. Dust everywhere too. I hate facing a grey day and a Monday to boot, but the countdown has started for the Bob Evans Farm Festival. I have many things started, lots half way etc.
Todays picture is of Emily's little side table. I found this table at a small store I like to browse in our local mall. They had used it for a piece to display little things on in the windows. There were also two more a bit larger. All were unfinished and "cured" just right to paint. In other words at least 5 years old and very dry....LOL. I marblized it, then crocheted with paint her doily for her teapot to sit on. Working on the window to go on the wall behind her now. Glazed the glass panes as the old windows usually are missing large chunks, don't want them to fall out. I am still thinking on what to put on this window as it will be for sale. Watch for future postings. Mushy Hugs

We went from back to front on the weekend and by Friday it looked like the bottom two pictures. Missy and I worked our hinnies off to get ready for the weekend of festivities. It was Poage Landing Days here in Ashland, KY. Three days packed full of all kinds of fun. Our whole block in front of our bldg was all the food vendors...grooaann....yes, I did have a few things. Had to have the Gyro, not much Greek food here....then had to have the miles of shaved potatoes, of course throw in a fried bologna sandwich. Then one last stab at heartburn to its fullest and that was a mile high beef brisket sandwich! That pretty much takes care of that kind of food until next year. Now back to the dieting...

Well she's done......I am actually very very please with the way she came out. I am now working on the little table that will sit beside her next. I am doing a pink marble top with a painted faux doilie. Her real little tea pot will sit on this....it matches her mug. Then comes the fireplace..... There has been a change in size due to a change in where I sell my stuff now. Once we find some mantles too look at , then I will be much happier...LOL. I'll tell you all about my new endeavor the first of the week.

the "Lady" has scared the pejeebers out of me for the last time today....LOL. I had her sitting up in a wingback chair in our family room and everytime I walked in I would catch her out of the corner of my eye and it would give me one heck of a startle (may not be a real word LOL). So I placed her in the screen room. I plan on having the mantle behind her, and will paint a window to go over the fireplace, yes I know its not possible to have a window there....but I can take license as an artist....LOL. The window will be larger then one that is there now. I am so excited about how well this is coming together. I have decided for sure to put price tags on everything.
Well, I poked at things again tonight. I did finish her hair front and back, also did the lapels on her jacket with flocking to give it the velvet look. Put some on the front and back of the hat too. Filled in places on the hat getting ready for the flowers, and also started on her blouse. Tomorrow....well we'll see what happens...

Looks like Blogger is having some problems this evening. I did have something written, but only the two pictures showed up. These are my last 3 Swap pieces that were sent out last week. Now to patiently sit beside my mailbox up at the end of my drive way and wait for the Swap to end and then I will get 5 back from various artists. Sure hope it doesn't rain, or for that matter by the temps that dropped from the 90's the day before to 50 last night that it doesn't snow anytime soon. Sure hate to wait out there in all that weather.....sigh, never been a patient person to wait for something. Mush Hugs
