I cannot believe Christmas is almost here. The older I get, the faster time goes by.
We have added a few one of a kind items to our website,
So Shabby Pink.
We are busy preparing samples and a display to take to the Dallas Market Center for the January 2010 gift show as well as filling orders! I don't know what I would do without my husband's help! He cuts all our wood and soon will be the assembly manager for our new items.
The last day to order for Christmas is December 4th.
If you have any special Christmas projects you would like to share, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with pictures and a brief description. We will make every attempt to get you published on our blog! Leave us a comment too. We always enjoy your feedback.
Thanks for stopping by today!

It is almost October! How did that happen? Our trees and grass are still green and it was 85 degrees today. That's okay though. I love the mild winters here.
I worked on two pin cushions today. Here is one of them that is the smaller of the two. The second one will be put on our So Shabby Pink website tomorrow.

I want to introduce you to a Designer/Artist that I met this year. Her professional name is Darlene Lydia Violet. I met Darlene through my website and it has been such a pleasure to get to know her.
First and foremost, Darlene wants all to know that she is a Christian and that she loves God with all her heart and soul. Darlene says God has given her this ability. She is happily married to her husband, Terry and they live in Florida with eight doggies! They have Miniature Schnauzers and Cairn Terriers. She likes calling them Schnauzicairns!
This is my favorite painting of hers. Everyone knows I love roses and this fits into the shabby chic and cottage home look I love so much.
Pink "Best Friends" Poodles is being shown on the website Vintage Chic Furniture. The hearts glow in the dark and they have faux diamond collars, eyes and toe nails! There is also a pink rose on the lady poodle's paw.
This painting has all my favorite colors. Such a beautiful piece of art! I really admire her talent and am so pleased to present her to you all.
All of Darlene's paintings are originals and painted in acrylics. They are finished off on the front with ribbons or pearls and pretty things that give them dimension. The back of her paintings are finished with felt and ribbons or fabric and ribbons.
I know there are many more fine details about Darlene's paintings that she would love to tell you about herself. If you would like to see more of Darlene's work or have questions, you can contact her through her email address:
email@example.com:email or contact me at:
firstname.lastname@example.org and I will hook you up with her!
I hope all of you are doing well. Glad you stopped by tonight. We finally got RAIN today and all is well.

I feel like we are living in the never ending twilight zone of heat! We adjust though. I watered plants early and came in to stay out of the heat.

I always want shrimp for special days. So, we made some shrimp and shrimp and shrimp kabobs and survived grilling in this awful Texas heat wave.
My family and I have reached that point where we ask, "What can I get them?" so we have resorted to food! My sister sent me all these goodies from Whole Foods Grocery in Georgia.
I often paint standing at the kitchen counter during these summer days! This does slow me down a bit, I must say but it beats the alternative.
My husband built this nice solid wood box for me when I was making soap. It was supposed to be a soap mold but I never used it. It is now a great holder for wash clothes or personal items on your romantic vanity.
Hope you stop by our website, So Shabby Pink. We have some great new things coming.....

The days have been a bit cooler this week, thank goodness. Tomato plants don't like to set new tomatoes when the nights are as warm as they have been. Hope we will have more "normal" temps for awhile. I am really not sure what is normal in Texas though.
We were cleaning out the garage not long ago and like many of you, I have collected things that I just know I will use --- someday and in ---some way. When my husband got serious about cleaning out, I had to really defend my right to keep some of my most prized BIG items. I almost lost these two beautiful old things!
This is an antique bed footboard - I used the headboard in the spare bedroom. Can you imagine him wanting to get RID of it? AH!

I got this door as someone was about to throw it out to the trash! Can you believe that? Look at all that shabby chic charm!
When my husband found out what I wanted to do with these great old pieces, he said, "You want to do what?!" For those of you who like to collect things like this, I bet you have heard those words before too, huh?
He was still asking that question at this point.....
My husband is such a good sport though. Although he was skeptical and was just not liking it as it went together, he kept going. He just focused on the workmanship, I guess, and he really does good work. To tell you the truth, I was beginning to wonder myself if I would like it.
I didn't even know he could do some of the touches he added to this project. He added some arms and routed the edges.
He still kept going....
Okay! Now there is somewhere to actually sit! At this point, this bench project became his own. He got sooooooo particular and fussy over everything being just right. I gladly just stood back and let him be in charge!
I don't even know how many coats of paint he meticulously put on this thing.
Ater putting in a seat, routing edges, adding trim and lots of paint, it is ALMOST finished.
