The details ....Before and After

I just love this armoire.... and I wanted to do something with it .... besides store my tv..

The before.....



And the After .....................
I made my own little world inside here ,something with all my best things... of course this could never hold all my stash.. but this here is a little nook of inspiration... as soon as I open the doors I am inspired and ready to create .....
I like it.. for a long time I have pondered doing this and well I finally did.......and I think it turned out so cute ~! a little of this and a little of that .... if I want to sew I put my sewing machine on the table.... Oh I still have my little studio ....but something about this really inspires me....






Of course we have a door full of dolls..I tacked up my old shoe holder bag to the inside of the door ... I love them for their sweet old fabric dresses, some of the prettiest patterns and trims I have ever seen....

Now the trick will be getting this moved into my studio !

And then the destashing continues.... would you believe I went through my vintage dresses and was able to part with 3 of them don't ask me how???????But I have added them to my etsy shop... My collection has grown quite abit ... and I always find them and buy them!!





It's these details that make me swoon over old dresses ....I love to collect them ...And will all my crinolines too my dress rack is a bit over stuffed !








All pale french blue colors........If only I could get into this one..I would so wear it!

So pretty! Oh, that last dress is a dream...I think you should add panels or something so you can get into it!
