Things I finally finished and still working on

I have put off projects far too long and these little benches jused to be green and oak, but since they go in my future sitting room I thought I would make them pink and white. I have several bears that I may use and have to choose only one to sit on top and I think I will take my country bear and dress her in pink lace with some frufru on her and her baby.

This was an ugly green color and I liked it, so gave it a nice coat of paint and will decorate it with small ivy vines and put a few little things on it.

This was a real bargain for $1.99 and it just needed some sanding and painting, so now I have a nice little storage shelf with a message board or pictures.
These are my dream letters that I have had for a while so I found some old wallpaper and cut and decoupaged the letters on and now I will add some pearls and embellishments so they are a little dreamier.

I found this old tarnished tray and the cute little fairy at Goodwill, so now it needs something else on it, and that's where my mind went blank, so guess I will be staring at it for a while.

My very first attempt at a ribbon rose and I put a pretty pearl in the middle for the stamin. Not too shabby for a first.

Now this one is my second and hope to do more of them for embellishments on bigger projects. Just need to sew the bottome so it stays in place and it might find it's way on the tray or on a hat for my bear. Opinions are always welcomed. I hope you ejoyed seeing my latest projects. I may end up with too much pink stuff but I can always give them away. I missed my 500th post, so I need to get things started for a giveaway. I have some pink things ready to go and I just may make a pink journal to add to the giveaway and a bookmark. My craft room is a little messy, but now I find I work better with things on the table that I can see, so it's full  of pink ribbon, buttons and some frufru things.

Please pray for the gulf coast that Bonnie stays a small tropical storm. You never know what these things can do and it's path so far is for the eastern part of the state, so we are out of danger, but I feel for the people along the gulf because Bonnie could push more oil ashore. Love and hugs, Pat   TGIF

I love how paint transforms just about anything, like magic!!!!
Thanks for showing your treasures.
Also thanks for stopping by with a fun comment. I have not tried Coke with peanuts yet but still plan to. Maybe I will try it this weekend, as a treat, since the heat index is in the triple digits now in northernmost Ohio!! I have been drinking LOTS of water!

Hi Pat! So fun to come here and see all the crafting you are up to! You make me feel so lazy. But I've been sick for so long it is really hard to get back in the groove. I've been trying to just work my way back up to the essentials, like bathing and doing laundry and loading the dishwasher! This is my first blog visit in a looong time! I've got lots of catching up to do, and wanted to visit you first!

Hope you are off to a great week!

Big TX Hugs,
Angelic Accents

Thanks for all the great compliments. I love redoing things and altering, but I am taking a short break because I had to take some nitro Sunday and that is not good. So the doctor wants me to bed rest--meaning don't do anything, but relax. It's very hard to say that to me and then to follow his orders. He knows how I am, but I am making the best of it. Love and hugs, Pat

Pat, this blog looks fine, but the Christmas one has the Photobucket deleted photo running right down the middle, honey.

Thanks Connie, going to fix that now.
