Decorating Treasures!

I'm putting the finishing touches on the Storybook Bears today!! Yes, they are finally nearing completion!! Joy of joys!! I'm SO doing the happy dance!!
It's not that I don't love these wee little girls....I truly do! My problem has been staying focused on the little darlings. I've been sidetracked with other projects, fabulous estate sales, antique shop sales, gardening, and family. How on earth does one stay focused with so many wonderful things to do and fabulous people to visit with?
And so, here I sit, pondering this question and working on yet another diversion.....my blog. Meanwhile, upstairs, little girly bears are fighting over dresses, shoes and bonnets!! I'd better get up there!!
Oh! I almost forgot to tell you a little about the pictures.....these are a few decorating treasures I've found while NOT working on my girly bears! Ha!
Warmest bear hugs, Aleta

Ooooh Aleta, I can't wait to see the Storybook bears - you've been teasing us with them all week!

I looove the doves on the pedestal and the framed botanicals. Man, I'd love to go shopping with you, but we'd fight over everything!



Aleta said...

Hi Brenda,
You're right....we probably would fight over everything! We're kindred spirits, you and me.

The coolest thing about all these treasures is that they were on SALE!! Yahoozerdoozer!!

Warmest bear hugs, Aleta

I can't wait to see your little Storybook Bear either. I'm hoping to get my little paws on a lavendery dressed darling...but I'm always late...late...late.

oooh, I have always wanted one of those old mannequin/dressmaker dummies, Lucky girl!! Your bear bonnets are super cute, can't wait to see the little beauties wearing them!

Aleta said...

Not much longer now!! They're done!! It's 9pm. Whew. Now I've got to take pictures, think up names, write listings, make tags....forward, two, three four. March, two, three, four.

Warmest onward little artist bear hugs, Aleta

Wow Aleta - we would have a doozy of a time shopping together. I have been looking for a mannequin to display my mother's wedding dress on for years. They are either in really bad shape or way too pricey. The little shoes are adorable - are your bears going to be on your website? I have been checking every day.

Hi Jill,
I think we'd have a fabulous time shopping together!! I've been looking for a mannequin like this one for a looooong time. You're right they're either in really bad shape or really expensive. The price on this one and the condition made buying it a no brainer!

And yes, the bears will be listed on my website!! Sometime tomorrow. I'm working on uploading pictures and writing listings now.

Bless you for peeking in!! Warmest bear hugs, Aleta
