So a couple of weeks ago I was saying that it freaked me out when I found a woman with her head between her knees having gotten dizzy from claustraphobia in my room. I then decided to thin out and rearrange so that it was more open. Well I done got over that. All the other women in the shop were doing cool, and some funky, displays and I felt like I was off my game. So I decided to try to get my groove back and here's part of the result. I actually added a desk, two lamps and several big nests since these photos were taken.I decided to start with the great big windows I'd gotten out of Oella Mill and put them in at a funky angle. Then I hung the baby doll pram from the top of one window and let the monkeys have a better view and get more attention.
I thought this was a great wood bird cage. It was my first hook in the ceiling, I feel like such a wiener saying that; it's not exactly like the hanging tables that Nene used to do at Oella.
Wow, can you believe I painted a gen-u-wine antique black comb case pink? See, I've become a wiener. But this does look quite fetching with Hope/Paper Relics Valentine cards in it, right? Back in the day it would have been a coffee table or a lamp.
And just a new piece. I found this antique figurine guy in some trash I was throwing out of a box to use for shipping; it was from the DC Big Flea and I guess I overlooked it when unpacking my treasures from my last trip there...in September! I got him together with a horse I had and they are having a grand time together.
Mo funk. I put a baby doll crib on top of the tall shelves. It's not like anything could be reached to buy or really even be seen so some one might buy but I still liked it. (Update 3/8/08...a lady bought the crib for a friend whose home is all shabby chic, it's a bed for her dog...perfect!)
