When I found this online store, I did the dance of joy. Shop Sweet Lulu (www.shopsweetlulu.com ) has all these vintage goodies for parties, scrapbooking and for the home. Not to pricey, but with the shipping and customs, it becomes a little pricey so I made sure to order a lot at once. This is what I bought : 1 french square plastic bottle, 10 carton berry baskets , 1 pink polka dot cocktail fork , 1 bag of wooden rainbow stripes spoons and forks , 1 bag of wooden utensils , 2 wooden berry baskets , 2 different sized packages of glassine bags , 6 daisy cut mason jar lids and finally ,1 porcelain berry basket. Yep!...Big order! But mommy is happy.And I'll be probably using some stuff for my photography .Can't wait for summer! I'll have the coolest picnic table in town!!!
So here it is...the 7x7 book from Blurb I talked about in a previous post. It's made for Instagram or any square Ipod,Iphone or Ipad pics.
I took mine with a soft cover this time...a little cheaper than the hard one.I will probably put a few things like washi tape on it, just to give it a little sparkle. Once again , left lots of white spaces for writing.
I manage to fit about 40 something pics...so happy. The best part : I got to open it for Mother's day. Yeah!
Toujours dans ma phase déco,j'ai entrepris la grosse job de repeindre mon classeur. Voici le avant, tout noir...
...et le après, blanc avec du chevron gris. C'est long mais ce n'est pas difficile à faire. Nettoyer et poncer, une bonne couche de primer en spray ''Rustoleum'' et 2 couche de peinture blanche en canette pour métal.Pour le chevron, j'ai peind les portes en gris (en spray aussi) , j'ai masqué avec du ''Frogtape'' et repeind avec le blanc.La seule difficultée, bien mesurer pour que chaques chevrons soit égales. Ta-da! Nouvelle vie à mon classeur!
When I buy something, it's never on a whim....but this! I HAD to have it. I've been searching for a few days and researching and comparing and....you get the point. But when I drove by a store that had these in their window, my car just parked itself in their parking lot.I walked in, didn't even looked at the price tag and threw my credit card on the counter. I was now the proud owner of 2 new Eames chairs.Yes they will serve the purpose of sitting chairs, but also extra chairs for guests at the dinner table and photography props. No guilt here. My husband says to keep repeating that to myself! lol
