Craft fair goodies

Yes, it has been awhile. Life has been a bit hectic. My new job is in full swing-lot's of event planning, scheduling and learning-but I love it! We got an offer on our house. An insulting offer, but that's what a short sale is really. I signed the papers on September 20th-my birthday-kind of a sad thing to do. Now we just have to wait for the short sale to be approved. We could be moving within 2-5 months...which brings a whole new dilemna-to decorate for fall or not to? If I do I know we will have to move really quick...if I don't, we will be there forever! I haven't decided what to do yet! In the meantime, I have been crafting to get my mind off of things. I sold some of my stuff at a craft fair this past weekend and I plan on making more stuff to sell at other fairs this year. Here are some pictures of what I made. I get so much inspiration from blogging and Pinterest. Enjoy the pictures!
My favorite candle with white eyelet laces and a big frosty blue/gray rose.
Towel holders-painted and distressed.
Fleur de lis tins.
MagnetsRose altered candle.
Rose message board made out of an old metal tray.
Paris metal tray message board.
A little vignette of the Paris goodies.
I loved making all these book bundles. No two are exactly alike!
White vintage lace, creamy crinkled seam binding and a frosty white rose.

Pink vintage lace, pink pearls and a frosty pink rose.

White tulle with a frosty blue/gray rose.

Blue and white vintage lace with a silky blue ribbon and a glittered hydrangea.

Black crinly seam binding, black pearls and a tiny skeleton key.

I hope everyone is enjoying fall so far. I can't wait for the temperatures to drop and the leaves to start turning. Maybe when that happens, I will be swayed to decorate for fall!

Trisha- What cute things you made! I am sorry about your house- I know that must be mind-numbing and heart wrenching to even think about. I'm keeping you in my prayers...and I say decorate...it'll make you happy to see it-even if it is for one last time- xo Diana

Hi Trisha!
I'm so glad you joined me today for Pearls and Lace Thursday! I get to jump over here and see all the pretties you made for your sales! I love your book bundles! The lacy ones especially (wink!!). I hope you are able to get everything organized for a quick move for when that time comes. It's so stressful anyway, just being organized makes all kinds of a difference! Hang in there! This too shall pass!
All the best,
Doni
