Hello...Is anybody out there?!

Hi everyone! It has been forever since I have posted. Life just plods along and on. No major disturbances other than the fact that my beloved pomeranian Hollie passed away last week. I still miss her oodles but time is healing my heart. In the mean time I have been keeping occupied with creating, painting and stocking All That Jazz. This post shows the pictures from the "re-do" that I did a couple of days ago.

I made a few pillows. I recently ordered a few stencils from Maison De Stencils. The pillows that say Paris and Musee d' Orsay show some of what I ordered. They cost a pretty penny but I am hoping they will pay for themselves soon.

Vignette. I NEED this zebra table to sell! It had 4 chairs with it which I sold separately and now I am thinking I shouldn't have split the set up.

I just finished this piece and took it in. I had a very vintage cupboard I used to display a lot of smalls on and I sold it last month, very reluctantly because I LOVED it! Therefore I needed another big piece to display smalls on. I think it fits the bill rather well!

I refurbished these tins. They were originally white with red flowers, yellow with pine cones, blue flowered and bright yellow! Now they're a matched set.

I hope you enjoyed the tour! I am now going to go off and visit all my blogging gals I have so neglected!

Hi Tara,
Thank you for visiting me! I can imagine your Antibes washstand was gorgeous. The vibrant colors don't sell well for us either...it's all about the neutrals! But it's more fun to paint in color, isn't it? Your booth looks just gorgeous! I love the new hutch you've brought in to display your smalls! I think you better start looking for another though, because someone is going to grab it up quick! I think the zebra table is fabulous! It would be so perfect in a boutique or salon! Have you tried advertising it on Craigslist? So sorry to hear about your beloved Hollie. What a sweet little face she had. I can only imagine how hard it must have been to let her go. Sending big hugs your way! Take care, friend!

Oh, everything looks great! You are so very talented! It was so fun to have you drop by...I know you are so very busy!!! With regards to your comment, those pictures I displayed of Mary (blackbird and pink cadillac) were taken at dress rehearsal. Mary knew her parts well...the choreography was staged so that each girl was doing a different part of a bird taking off in flight. So, when I looked back and viewed the pics through your lens, I could see how it appears she was confused. Another thing that was going on...she knew her dance well...but kept looking at the other girls to make sure she wasn't off on her timing. I noticed during dress rehearsal that she wasn't smiling and so she worked on her stage presence. By Sunday afternoon's recital she was spot on with her smile and focus. Unfortunately, digital recording and still photography was not allowed during the actual 2 recital performances. :(

Anyway, again, so good to hear from you!

Sorry to hear about Holli - pets are family and I know that it must be hard for you now.

Glad to see that you are doing well with all that Jazz! Looks fab!
