First "Fitting Party"

Miss J here, is the only one wearing a petticoat underneath, so I enlarged her pic to give a true idea of what the finished product will look like. So fun!!!

Working on the centerpieces, below.

The flowers, below, will go on each girls' pair of shoes, so as to give the appearance of them all matching.

Paint Projects

First off, is this little number Sara made for a birthday gift for one of her artist friends. It was sold as bare wood from Hobby Lobby...
Like so:
Cute, huh? She added the hooks so she could hang her jewelry from it.
Next, we still have Wedding Stuff coming out of our ears. Lots of frames to paint cream...
These are only a few so far.

See the pitchers below?

We'll be painting MANY of these puppies cream for part of the centerpieces.
Like so:
Hope you're having a good one! : )
