White Wednesday

I tried to get rid of "it" a few times...
but every time I looked at it"
all I saw was a missing eye
and a big open mouth pleading for help.

I know I might have lost it,
but look... don't you see the same?



It's OK...
you don't need to respond...

In any case,
"it" got her makeover and this is She now...
New dress,
new makeup...





and a whole new life!



Just in time for another
White Wednesday!

Nothing like paint and a sewing project to add the always needed more storage. It came out great!

What a clever makeover and I do see the missing eye and open mouth....does this mean we're both losing it?

You do have the best ideas.

Well, isn't this just the cutest little cupboard ever?! I love what you've done to "French" it up! Great vignette on the top too!

Jane said...

Thanks for stopping by Artfully Graced. I appreciate your comments re: "other sports". My 3 boys played them all. Soccer was the primary sport for 2 of them (22 yrs)and now the youngest is now giving back by coaching a boys club team and all the goalkeepers (his specialty) at the club.
I am betting your families will enjoy the jalapeno spread. Everyone seems too...
