Transformed Traincase


I found this great traincase at one of the consignment shops I love. It is bigger than most and a perfect container for books, file folders, or anything!!! The design is one of my own in the springtime series. I love the hollyhocks that are growing beside the cottage. Sadly, I have had no luck with any I have planted so these will have to satisfy my longing for those beauties. I decoupaged wallpaper bluebirds and a picket fence around the bottom. My dearest reminded me that everything I paint lately has been pink. I guess I need to switch from this phase but I dearly love that color and just can't help myself!!!

I love it Martha...'specially those fat little birds! I love pink too. I am a very...well, can't find the word...some might say...junky decorator. I mix and match to suit my mood...and have splashes of pink everywhere.
I keep slipping over here to drool over that crumb cake. Can't stand it any longer...think I have to bake one in the morning...maybe add some pecans. Now you pray with me that someone comes along to help me eat it...just to insure that my pants will still fit next week!
Blessings, Susie

I love the traincase, the birds are so pretty and the colours are just right I would keep some of my favourite treasures in this.

Any news on the coffee pot yet I tried to buy again but it still will not accept because I am in the UK.

Martha, the pink is lovely. You have a wonderful touch!

I beg for your patience Bluebell. Our Post Office doesn't open until Monday so I will be there bright and early to get a quote on postage for you on the coffee pot.
