~ At Last

Well...after a whole lot of procrastination

Here are the finished signs/plaques I promised to show you!

I thought posting pics of the empty signs last month would somehow hold me accountable to get them done quickly...  Silly me!
Never the they are.  The photo above shows them in a grouping so I'll try to do a few close ups....

I also came across these sweet scalloped wooden boxes that I just HAD to stencil.  I think I'll add a couple rhinestones to these.

The other white box was already mine, but I thought it would look scrumptious stenciled in Fleurs.
Here's a close-up of My Secret Garden planters.  Ready to go in the shop after I embellish them with the rhinestones.

The Garden Room sign I already posted, but I decided to stencil this old shabby header.  What do you think?
This is a vintage chalkboard that I stenciled with Ivory paint
Isn't this scrumptious pink sign perfectly shabby?  Thought the Shabby Villa stencil would be perfect for this.
Not to mention this old green chippy panel....just perfect for a garden room.
Embellished this panel with an old door plate and skeleton key.
Close up of the Header
 Blessings...don't we all take them for granted?
 Still time for garden least in my neck of the woods in New England.
Hope you've enjoyed seeing the finished long last!!  As soon as I attach the backings this week, they'll be headed to my rented space at the shop.  Would love to hear your thoughts on these.

I'll try not to be away so long next time....I've missed you ALL!  xoxo

Hi Karen,
They are all items of beauty. So feminine in their shabbiness!
