FLEA MARKET BOOTH PICTURES
My friend and neighbor, Amy and I have a cute booth at H&K Flea Market in Houston, MO. We are really proud of it. Our only problem is more ideas than time. Here are a few pictures of recent creations.
This Vintage Hat Box was falling apart. I did some repair work, modge poged sheet music , and added some coffee filter flowers. Now it has a new life. Pictured along side are some Bird House Books. I can't take credit for them, I saw them at a favorite blog Red Hen Home.

MY KITCHEN MAKE OVER
My kitchen update has taken all my extra time for about three months. I still have some finishing touches but I am close to being done. We painted the walls and ceiling. Added new ceiling fans, new stove,
refrigerator and a upper and lower cabinet. Painted all the cabinets black. Hung some antique doors on one wall, attached crates and old singer sewing machine drawers for shelves. We also took apart an antique table and attached it to the doors for extra table space. To decorate with, we used kitchen items from our parents, grandparents, and my great aunt Coe. The "new" used lower cabinet was made for my mother by my grandpa Slim. We love our kitchen. I still don't have a dishwasher but I don't mind because I like being in my kitchen now. A big THANKS to my Mom, Amy and Oggie, we couldn't have done it with out them.
JUNE SCRAPBOOK LAYOUT
The first June layout was made from the Florentine paper pack. I loved this paper and thought it was so cute. I am not always good about cutting stripes correctly. I made a mistake and ran out of paper. The second layout for June is just as cute. Made from Zippidy, a discontinued paper pack. Still using the CTMH Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge for the letters.
