one side of the sewing table


On one side of the sewing table today -- a freshly-spray-painted old wire basket filled with strips of light-colored cloth. It was an outdoor candle holder from Target -- now I wish I'd bought about five of them because there's a place in the room where they could be hung.



And the Crosley ipod dock/radio, a garden bouquet, and one tiny feverfew blossom in a water-filled geode.


I won't be showing the other side of the sewing table just yet.

Amazing how my favorite color (turquoise) changed that basket from nice to fabulous lol! Love the new look and how cute is that? To be able to stash fabric in it and see it...love it!

wondrous use of paint! i generally love rusty things and natural tones...but you always manage to spark an interest in things i'm not interested in! makes me wanna go out and paint something! ha!
