My daughter is better, after much prayer, naps, and antibiotics. So I decided to make my way outdoor and do projects.  
Here is an antique door that has been turned into a seat for indoor. I decorated it with some of our pillows. 
Then I had a roll cart that I had ran across at a flea market. This makes 2 that I have. I love these. 
And of course, my LAST antique bed bench that I am going to do. This one is for a garden bench.  

My daughter caught a case of pneumonia, so I have been tied up for several days, going into a week now. I haven't been able to do much of anything. 

So, since I was stuck in my own home, and having to check on her constantly, I decided to repaint my living room and dining room wall. It was barn red.  And the other 3 walls are antique white. I like this better.

 Pics from my show in Fort Smith this past weekend.

Great time, and met great people.

Look at some of the goodies that were there.

 Burlap Napkin Rings
 When I was going through things to load for the show, I ran across these cloth napkins, but they needed some help. It being Fall time, I decided to decorate for harvest. I pulled out my Burlap, cut strips, hot glued it, I keep burlap twine for crafts, so I made bows, and hot glued an antique button.

 This is SO easy, and a last minute idea. Perfect for "Harvest" time decor.

 Made a few extra pieces to take for fall decor.

I love my antique windows, of course.

 Have been working really hard these last two days to finish up last minute things. Here is a few things going.

Ken made me another bench to take with me since I liked mine so much.

 I was so excited to show you my room divider screen that I finished today out of 2 antique doors. Last one sold SO fast. I love this one. The way the color turned out on it.

AND THE CAMERA PICS TURNED OUT HORRIBLE!!!! They are so blurry that it is hard to see. I wish that you could see the details to this piece. 

Maybe I can get some new pics tomorrow.

Taking a day of rest, before I have the show this weekend. I still have MANY things to do to prepare. So many people tell me that they want to do a show, and they have no idea what it takes to prepare for one.

But my girls are going through things, so today is devoted to them. The oldest called me from Oklahoma upset, and needed "Mom time", and the youngest one started in last night needing it. I LOVE being a mom. Thank you Lord. 

I will be back tomorrow with projects. Best wishes, and blessings from above.

I didn't get ALL the projects finished, but I thought that I would go ahead and post the pics that I have. I has been so hot, and trying to work out in this heat is horrible. But I hope to finish up tomorrow. 

Now this cola cabinet. There is another one that is the color of this text. It is a real pretty blue.  When my camera charges, I will photo  it.. 

The antique door has a chalk board backing, for writing a memo, or grocery list. I guess could be honey do list. Has little shelf for decorating.

Stay tuned!!!! I am whipping up some new things today! I was up bright and early. Well, maybe not so bright 2 am, coming up with more things for the show. So there will be new pictures, and ideas for you to do in your home.  Check back real soon!!

 Been busy today preparing more items for the show coming  on the 15th in Fort Smith. These are 2 Cork boards that are covered with burlap, and have some really pretty knobs placed on them to hang aprons, etc.

 This is great memo boards for a bedroom also. One has a hook you could hang your hat on.
This is some really fun burlap pillows that I made out of my scrap burlap to put on my antique bed bench at the show. I painted on them to give them color. FUN FUN FUN

Okay, I have two new things to show you. Remember I said that I would get back with the record cabinet. Well, here it is.  It can be used as a tv stand, buffet, or even as a dresser, as long as you don't have more clothes than me.

I also made a little flower utopia tree last night while watching pickers. This is out of 1920's and 30's sheet music. Just another decor. Cut hearts hand pin an antique button in the middle. 

I also decided to make another lamp after making my daughters while she was here...I'm tired...

Well, My daughter went back to Oklahoma with a CAR LOAD. So back to the work shop. Think I will take a day, and then time to get back in the swing. 

I have the show coming up on the 15th in Fort Smith, so I have to start churning things for that. I went to pull things from the store that I wanted to take, and they were sold. So I have many things to do. 

I still have the buffet and record cabinet to finish off.
That is at the top of my list. Wish my luck, (I prefer prayer), and I will post pics soon.
 My daughter also sees on my computer a cabinet that I did with an antique window and wants it, so guess what? Of course, mom can't say no. Project #2 at work.
She THEN sees the quilt rack that I use at antique shows to display quilts, place mats, etc. She wants it. Do I need to say more. I was going to take a break, but I am going to have to build things when she leaves.
