Roost Projects...

Got a great jump on the weekend's list of projects...

Made some new pillows

I found this really great island cabinet at the Junk Salvation Show from my friend Kathleen of Faded Charm

I had to have it for my kitchen island... But although it was super chic and industrial it was a little too industrial for my kitchen so I decided to REimagine it for my space.  Here's how it turned out...

Picture doesn't really do it justice but I love how it turned out.  However as I excitedly moved it into my kitchen I quickly realized that it was too big.  So as bummed as I am that it won't work for me I am excited to have it at the next show to come.

Studio Play Date...

So I have been pondering for the last year what to do with my Honeymoon pictures of Italy.  I have picked a couple out to have framed and put on the wall but I haven't figured out what to do with the 100+ other photos.  Well I have finally figured it out. 
I'm going over to Vintage Trifles to be a part of her Studio Play Date.

She is featuring a Passport to the Past ...

Using a variety of techniques, Martha will teach us to transform an ordinary file folder into a lovely keepsake “passport” that will feature a special person, significant event, memorable trip or something from your imagination!

For me I'm using this as a Honeymoon memory keepsake.

If anyone wants to join me and some other fantastic girls check out her blog for more information.

Here are a couple of before pictures that I have to work with. 
I am too excited to see what will come of them.

Here are a couple of sneak peaks on what they might come out looking like...

Junk Salvation was a blast!!!

Here are some quick pictures I took before the flood gates were opened and the fans and customers flowed through the doors of the Funky Junk Sister's Junk Salvation Show.  I was a little nervous because I am still a little young at this "off site show" thing.  Also I was in such AMAZING company and talent it was hard not to feel the pressure.

 The roost spring line of pillows went really well so I have been sewing away to create more for the upcoming shows.


There are some amazing pictures out there in blogland but a friend of mine did a great feature of the Junk Salvation Show on her blog and also I ran across this one as well
