Sister # 1, be her guest tour

My sister Suzette's guestroom, is so wonderful...just look!

This is a lamp she embellished, 
simply lovely and puts off just the right glow, too.
She is working on some shades for Elsie Mae on Market!!!

 side table, birdcage goodness!

Decorative pillows...and the best soft bedding, 
makes for perfect dreams... 

Her famous burlap and rusty bed spring valance...
You really need to see it 
when the lights on it are turned on, sorry!

on this side Suzette placed a chair,
One of our bedspring crosses,
also will be part of our merchandise
at Elsie Mae on Market...
can you tell I am getting excited
and tired...a good tired.

and Moma designed, sculpted, and hand stitched that precious old lady.
Opal Toney made every piece of it, 
down to the boots and shoe laces.
Amazing Moma 

She used glue for the glass lens, felt for the hat,
fashioning a tiny buckle for the dress..

Moma sculpted these hands...
She did it all...with her artist hands
and a pink plastic pick, 
used to hold a brush roller in one's hair.

Hopefully, we can display some at Elsie Mae
I certainly need to do another post on Moma and her dolls, 
like I said, "amazing"

love the yellow "Oops" paint.

some real cherished treasures on this shelf...sentimental, personal,

a song sheet wreath, also available at our store...
and one of Suzette first attempts painting with the ASCP, 
the dresser turned out nice.
It wouldn't be a "Suzette" room without a cloche, 
and this one with dried hydrangeas is stunning.

# 5, for Five Sisters, made by Junkin' Sista Sandra.
and yes, lol, we will have numbers and letters, too!

Isn't this chair and pillow just the Bee Knees!

Suzette makes the prettiest paper flowers, 
love them bunches...
we all enjoy working with paper...

 and yet, another sweet chair. 
This one partnered with a table lamp.

She is blessed with 14 grandchildren!
& we are blessed to work with her and other talented family and friends.
I made the corrugated BLESSINGS sign by tearing up an old card board box.
I PLAN hope to "spot light" each of the Elsie Mae Junk Crew...  soon, know I am such a random blogger,
but for now that works for me.

Sweet Dreams

Hi Lezlee!

Boy howdie!!! I love this room. I must say, the fruit doesn't fall far from the tree in your family, huh?

Your Moma has quite the talent, the detail in the dolls hand amazed me. Kind looks like that doll could be name Opal Toney!
And...this room. So cozy. Looks like a fun place to visit and a nice place to relax.

Elsie Mae on Market..sounds like it is going to be a fun place to visit too!

The room is both lovely and inviting. I am amazed by the doll and as Pat said it should be named after your Moma. I love reading your stories about your Moma. Wish I lived close enough to come to the show.
