I had such a ball the week or two before my big opening of The Shabby Chic Shack in Mount Dora. I gathered with dear friends in Tampa and shopped for last minute treasures, created bath treats, and put finishing touches on art pieces for the big weekend!
A gorgeous Victorian wedding dress gifted to me from my dear friend Christine a few months before was destined to be the main backdrop of The Shabby Chic Shack.
I spent a weekend outdoors hand stitching this patio umbrella with assorted pieces of vintage lace, crochet and forgotten fabrics... This will be a main showpiece of The Cottage Chic Sale! Lemonade and cupcakes on a shabby buffet will await guests under this welcoming little chateau!
One of my main embellished signature pieces I created was this.. I found this piece at a thrift store. It is a large wall size piece. It was beautiful to begin with, but I knew it was my job to take it to another level..
I adored the finished result! I used vintage laces I dyed and stiffened, special rhinestone and pearl fabrics and trims, and more....
