Waiting Patiently

See this little gem...

I've been waiting for it to tell me what it would like to have done to it. I've had a thought or two but I think it finally spoke to me last week. That's a good thing because I have an empty spot waiting to be filled by it.

Some of you may have seen this little baby at the craft show

When asked by many if it was for sale, my reply was no. I'm only 80% happy with it. I had long ago decided that it would make a great display unit for me at the sale, and so it would be my center piece, and definitely be for sale. It wasn't really until the week of the sale that I became disenchanted by it. I needed to figure out what went wrong, but I still needed it for the show.

I will show you that once upon a time it looked like this...

So after some research I figured out the problem and will fix up this little fixer upper.

I'm also glad that my little gem waited to tell me what it was it wanted me to do. I want to make sure that I get this just right and do it proud the first time.


  1. Great job Deb! I would love to hire you to repaint some of my!

  2. you my dear are your own worst critic - the dresser at the sale was beautiful! looking forward to seeing what the new gem will look like
