Progress

I finished up-cycling the old bookcase this week.  Pay no attention to the clutter of my patio behind it. I set it over here, out of the way, while I work on auditioning what I will pack for the launch.  The black paper photographed a little funky.  It is black with white dots.
This black and white ticking will be on the wall behind it.  My idea is to set white things on the top shelf so they stand out against the black background and then organize by color on the other shelves.
I finished lining the wire market cart.  I
It seems like this will work for hauling replenishment to the car from the "booth".  I might be a little overly optimistic on how much I need to haul - LOL!
The week has not been without some junking.  When I walked in to my soon to be dearly departed VOA last weekend they had buttons set aside for me.  These are my favorites. You can click the picture bigger for a closer look.  I am especially fond of the lavender and the amber in the lower left corner and the green buffed celluloid leaf.
I was delighted to score another scrapbook of vintage greeting cards this week.  Most in this one are baby cards and just adorable!
I have also been working on some re-org in the art room this week - shifting gears to accommodate the new "booth". It really isn't a booth but don't know what else to call it.  The space?
Change is in the air around here!

Good Morning Kathy, Great look with the cases and I love your buttons. The green leaf is beautiful. Great idea for the shopping cart. I used to use a rolling storage tub to bring in goodies to my space. So much easier then lifting everything.
Beautiful haul of greeting cards. Have a nice weekend.

Button love, they're so pretty! Your cart is looking mighty fine with its new liner. Hmm, maybe you could make these and sell them. Love how you prettied up the shelf, it's really going to show off all your treasures.

Well, there is no doubt what my favorite thing is this week. You make me want to find a little cart to decorate.
