Neat stuff, the beginning of new art and of angel ~

I just have to share something so neat that I found Sunday!! My husband and I were out "junkin" and I came across this wonderful little treasure ~ A small cabinet with a glass door and sides! It seems old and is definitely quite distressed but I want to give it a new back and a little shelf to go inside!!! Just the right size display cabinet for small things ~

A gift from my sweet friend Dawn ~ I LOVE speckled eggs!

Do you play with your supplies? Arrange them and switch items out to see what pleases your eye? I've been wanting to work with this pressed baby's breath but know that it's fragile and could crumble if it's touched....

So I thought I'd try a little gel medium to "glue" it to the fabric and stabilize it some. Tomorrow I'll show you the result!!

Just three friends hanging out in an old teacup ~

And here's the angel......sweet Clara! (Just for you Grandmama Dawn!)
Emily's mother's name is Dawn too!!
ps. I'm Mimi and Dennis is Papa :) but we'll see what she ends up calling us....
Today she's two weeks old!

Wishing you a wonderful Monday sweet friends!

xxoo, Dawn

Thanks for the fun stuff. Yes, I mean Clara, too--such big, bright eyes for a little bit of a girl.

The Green Pea said...

What a sweet little cubby. I had one that had screen in place of the glass, it was a small pie safe.

The baby is adorable, what a blessing! Sandi

I just posted a new image with bluebirds and a birdhouse from my grandmothers baby book!!

Vee said...

She is the sweetest alert with her beautiful eyes wide open. Two grandmothers named Dawn? That's interesting and cool!

Looking forward to seeing your new acquisition all fitted out. It'll be scrumptious of that I am certain.

Sue said...

Beautiful baby. It seem that she will have an absolutely beautiful life with a loving family to nurture her. And I like your little cabinet, also. Sue

Dawn said...

Such a sweet little face.
Give her an extra kiss from this old mimi.

The Cutest Cottage Lamps said...

Hi Dawn, what a sweet little girl! So precious! I'm anxious to see how your dried flowers turn out too...also the cute little cupboard - isn't it an old pie safe? I know pie safes had screening on the sides, maybe at one time it did? Well have a great week!

KarenHarveyCox said...

Congratulations Dawn...she is such a sweetie pie. Oh, the joy of having a new baby in the house. I can't wait to have grandchildren. Have a lovely day.

Miss Sandy said...

Great find and I am tantalized by the peek at a new production from The Feathered Nest. Clara is so sweet!

Elizabeth G. said...

Hey, Dawn!

Many, many thanks for the link and suggestions regarding my finding a "Dream" sign. I am happily excited to get one for myself!

Also, I was amazed to see that cute little cabinet. I just found something smaller, but very much like it...I haven't done anything to mine yet and will be interested to see what you do with yours!

And as for Clara...Boy, is she bright-eyed and very pink! You will have to give her a little cheek kiss from me (I love baby cheeks!). I am so happy for you. "Mimi" is a cute name and so much easier for a little one to say than "Grandma".

Have a beautiful Monday!

Michele said...

Oh Dawn ~ I soooo love that little cabinet or table...can't wait to see what you do with it!

Sweet Clara - oh my, I'd just love to hold her and breath in her sweet baby smell.

Have a great week!

Pat @ My Tattered Elegance said...

Your cabnet is really fun, I want one! The picture of Clara is beautiful, she is going to be a heart braker.
Love, Mary

Sammy Girl said...

Dawn ... Did I miss the results of the pressed flowers? Don't think I did, but wanted to make sure ...

Hugs and thanks for being here on this techno-challenging day!

Betty :)

Utah Grammie said...

I know I've said this before, but Clara is one of the pretties babies I've seen - and every time you post a photo, I can't help but almost saying that out loud - she's BEauTiFuL!!

Oh my gosh..that cabinet is ADORABLE....very jealous ..but I know you will do some AMAZING things with it.
Sweet little baby girl too.

Yes, will be most interested in seeing how your baby's breath (flowers ) turn out.
What brand of "glue" did you use ?
