VINTAGE LADDERS..!! before & after..& MORE CRAFTING!!




Howdy girls... I shall try to keep it short & sweet..(ha ha!!)..

Anyway last evening in Melbourne we had the BIGGEST STORM/RAIN in memory..(left over apparently from the Cyclone which hit north queensland)..

lots of flooding ...showing a few pics at the start of the storm from my window....

Today I have painted/stencilled a Vintage cute little ladder I had...

photos show before & after...

I painted it white..blackboard painted the metal parts...stencilled some letters..sanded all down...& have just picked some rosemary from my "non existant" garden & placed them in little bottles...(these are left over cute little bottles from when you have the "sticks in the scent" aroma thingeys??

I hope you know what i mean...they are just super to keep for little floral arrangements...

als0 painted a suitcase a shabby pink...

Just HAD to modpodge a vintage music sheet candle to match my balls!!

did a little cute cupcake decoupage canvas print...

So i have had a busy crafty type saturday..

& with MR SOOTY being totally blind now...I bring him to where i am working & tell him to sit in his little "BED" & voila he is happy/comfy...close nearby..

Hope all this weather starts to improve for EVERYONE..

You did all that in one day?!?! Wow, I'm impressed Andrea. Mind you, with the weather that bleak outside what else are you going to do. It's nice your puppy can be close by while you do your crafting, what a cutie.

Poor Mr Sooty!! I bet he still likes to hear you talking to him Andrea and know that you are near by. If only we could give him a small portion of my poodle pups energy... she has way too much!!

That sure was a very creative day today Andrea. I so love your step ladder.

Hi Andrea, love what you have been doing and absolutely adore that ladder! The candle looks great, have been wanting to do one.. as I've never tried it but have seen so many out there in blogland. Your puppy is so cute, we had a fox terrier a long time ago that went blind due to old age. Poor thing.. that's nice to keep him close bye. take care, Maryann
