Trinket necklaces and other new jewelry

I have a show coming up in a couple of weeks and have started creating some new jewelry. Here are some pictures of new necklaces I have been working on lately. The trinket necklaces are so much fun to make. I am quite the hoarder of charms and do dads. I just pick and choose from my stash and create these fun necklaces. I also am pouring lots of resin these days. Here are some sweet map charms I made. I just love old maps, the graphic nature and the colors. Some of these necklaces will be available in my etsy shop very soon. Thanks for stopping by!

Too cute!

Ok this post has nothing to do with I usually post on my blog, but I couldn't help myself. I saw this on dog on Pinterest and am smitten with it. It is a Golden Cocker Retreiver. It will always look like a puppy and not get any bigger. I have a 3 year old Golden Retreiver that I adore, I would love to have her smaller version too. My husband told me to just forget about it. No way I am getting one of these dogs, it just may take awhile to soften him on the idea.

Sassy and Stash booth updates

I haven't posted pictures of the antique booths in awhile. Here is some of the new things we got added into both the the Stash and Sassy booths. If you would like to see more like us on facebook. Just type in" Sassy & Stash at Queen of Hearts." A bit long I know sorry. The top picture is of a new three drawer chest. The color is a soft robin's egg blue (our custom chalk paint color). The lamp on top is vintage wooden and painted with Van Gogh chalk paint in the color Van Gogh. It's a cool color love it. Be sure to like us on Facebook! Bless your heart.

I love painted floors

I love the look of painted floors. I found these on Pinterest and getting very inspired to paint my floor in my antique booth.
Painted stairs are really awesome too.
Bright colors look great too, so many ideas not enough time!

T shirt Art

I love this idea! We all are probably guilty of hanging onto to many t-shirts from concerts, college etc. I have seen where you can send your shirts off and have them made into a quilt. I think this would be great if all of the shirts had a related subject matter. I think this is a great idea for all of those shirts that have special memories associated with them or they just are a favorite.
Staple them to inexpensive canvas' and use them as wall art. What a great idea, the canvases are super affordable (especially with those 40% coupons the craft stores hand out so freely). It would also be a quick project with instant gratification. The only potential problem that I see with this is..... you will have to cut the tee up, never to be worn again. If you can do it this is a great project.

Making ottomans out of old tables

I love this idea of taking an old ugly coffee or end table and converting it into an ottoman. Here are some samples I found on Pinterest.
I have to admit I have done this twice with old coffee tables. They work a little easier in the matter of height. They usually don't need to be cut down on the legs to make them a comfortable height. The best thing about this project is you probably already have a good table sitting around just waiting to be converted. This last one looks like it has some great photos and instructions. Send me a picture if you get one made yourself I would love some more inspiration.

Upcycled Armoire

Just finished this armoire and it's in the booth. We took a petite armoire removed the doors,added a shelf that was missing and beadboard on the back.
Wouldn't it look great in a bathroom with storage for towels in the open area and all of your ugly stuff in the drawers. I also think it would be great for storage in a craft room. Baskets in the open area could hold fabric and the upper shelf for paint. The rest of my tools could go into the drawers. There is an abudance of these armoires out there. Everyone seems to be ditching them for their tv since they now want to hang them on the wall. Go get one and make it your own.

Creative Jewelry Storage

Have you ever opened your jewelry box to a big rats nest of jewelry. The kind that will take hours to untangle. I always swear I am not going to just through things back in my jewelry drawer, but I do. So I was looking for some creative and stylish ways to store my jewelry and here is what I found on pinterest.

This three tiered tray is awesome would be great for bracelets. Also there is a little stand with a pole on it that bracelets are stacked on too. I think I could make that in about 3 minutes. There is even a board for necklaces behind that. So many ideas in one photo.
This would be awesome for wall storage if you don't have enough counter space.
How about filling your drawers with vintage tart tins for this cute storage.
This rake is adorable for necklaces. Most of these things I probably have lying around here I just need to be creative.
