Weekday Work + A Contest!!

Having temporarily converted the dining room into a workspace is really paying off. Much thanks to the deer (pun on name intended) husband for his outstanding patience during my creative spurts.

This week has yielded some requests for custom bridal hairpieces as well as an order fir a few headbands [thank you, Sarah Beth!], which led to a bit of a groove. Guess you gotta roll with it when that happens.

Potentially bridal, but not locked in. Made from a fitted ivory tee and ribbon. {Hampton}

Leftover lace and a stone pulled from a vintage cocktail ring. {Davidson}

Wham, bam, thank you glam. Olive and gold is the way to my heart. {Freddy}

The next three were also made by upcycling a fitted tee that was bound for Goodwill. {Dexter}


Named for the color scheme which rules her life, this is a tribute to {Bishop}

A bridal clip with a vintage opalescent button and a hint of ivory tulle {Baxter}

And the last one photographed yesterday evening was a third bridal piece featuring ranunculus. {NAME CRISIS}

This is where you come in. Whomever submits the most appropriate regal male name for this piece will receive a custom hairpiece from me for only seven bones, plus shipping. That's unheard of, but I'd really appreciate your help.

Let the naming begin!

Project Love

In honor of the rapidly approaching DeluxeOK Indie Craft Bazaar, I spent a good part of my weekend artsing and crafting at the ark. (By ark I mean our house made of cedar.) It began by overtaking the dining room table. Well, the whole dining room, in actuality.

Some end results include:::


Leon Bernard--

Thomas, Clive and Crew-- These are actually Anthropologie measuring cups!


Dapper Dan--

4 cake stands made from vintage plates and candlesticks and numerous moss plus milk glass arrangements--

And this is just the beginning. If you're anywhere NEAR Oklahoma City on December 12th, consider stopping by DeluxeOK. More details viewable at or by following @DeluxeOK on Twitter. Free admission!!!

A (re)Finished Chair

You may remember the before photos from a week or so ago. This was a $3 Goodwill find with original wood stain and horribly stained floral fabric. Dingy.

We used a pillowcase ($.50 from same Goodwill) to cover both chairs. Gray and ivory. Painted the chair a light metallic gold at first because it was some leftover paint I had, but decided it wasn't right. $5 at Hobby Lobby got a can of London Gray paint. And finished!

Will post pictures of the How-to process. Look forward to this. It will include the uber-gentle Cheryl ( karate-chopping the chair backs out! Hahaha.
