Before and after small suitecase!

 Picked up this little lovely last week at my local thrift store and decided to alter it.
 The outside was a dark brown and the inside a kraft look. I painted the entire outside an ivory color and then distressed ti with Tim Holtz Vintage Photo distress ink.
 I added the flat back pearls all around the top. The flower in the lower right corner is from my wedding dress that I sprayed with Tattered Angels "Caramel Apple" one and only! The flower int he upper left corner is one of my handmade crape paper flowers. The piece next to it is also from my wedding dress sprayed with the TA!
 This is the inside lid....the paper letter is from a collage sheet from an old magazine, the hankie looking fabric I found in my stash. The beaded face is one of mine and the other piece is also from my wedding dress sprayed with the TA spray. You can also notice I glued a brocade trim all around the inside case.
 The inside I just cut a piece of pattern paper and the shoes are stickers that I distressed with Vintage Photo ink and added some K & Company dimensional stickers!
 These two pics are a closer look at the flowers.
                                                                                   There's a little mini I made to go inside....that will be posted soon.

Sneek peak.....

Can you guess what this will become?
This is the before....gotta wait for the after...wink!
I promise you won't have to wait long!


Goodwill finds....

 Hubby and I went to our newest favorite place to shop....Goodwill! Found this wood cabinet for my craft it!
 As hubby was cleaning and oiling it for me (my sweetie) he noticed on the back the original price tag....$299.00, made in Brazil, marked down to $199.00 and I got it for $11.69.....not bad!
 Love, love this purple lamp....hubby brought this home from  one of his Goodwill trips....he thought it would look good in my craft room...... He was right!!

Monday Sharing

I wanted to share something I read this morning during my devotion's my hearts desire to spread the wonderful Word of the Lord and my prayer is that it my touch your heart and bless you as it has mine.....

Give Me
God, give me eyes that I might see
The work that can be done by me;
God, give me ears that I might hear
The cry of those who need me near.
God, give me lips that I might speak
Comfort and peace to all who seek;
God, give me a mind that I might know
How to help those who need me so.
God, give me hands that I might do 
Some large or simple task for You;
God, give me a prayer that I might pray 
Thy help and guidance every day.
And this one thing, all else above;
God, give me a heart that I may love.

Have a blessed day!
