was there a name for that short hair style on the left? what would the Project Runway judges have to say about her top ? =) =)
I LOOOVE this little Baby Sweater
I gave 1.50 for these
My future out look as a knitter capable of creating awesome baby itemes such as these is BLEAK AT BEST =(
5 cents for each of these wonderful publications at the AV thrift store
was there a drink called the Pink Elephant in the 1970's??
How adorable is this little paper coaster? 10 cents for the package
This 1971 Needlepoint magazine offers all the steps to creating this BLUER THEN BLUE directors chair! A FINE match for the table cloth. 10 cents for this treasure.
i scooped this "BEATNIK" character by KREISS at a local desert moving sale. I gave 1 dollar for him.
how cool is this RETRO table cloth? 75cents at the hospice shop
like magic the piece comes to life as the grout dries and the tile is rubbed* rubbed and rubbed...
as soon as the grout is well spread and rubbed in you immediately use a soft cloth to begin rubbing it off of the tiles
here is shot of the spreading of the grout. The Mosaic Mamas(our self created nickname ) discussed ways to build a heavier duty glove to protect from getting cut.
we didnt get a good shot of the freeing step of scooping up a mound of grout and just smooshing it over the piece then in a circular motion to aid the grout into all the crevices
My piece complete after day one-awaiting grout application on day 2.
Day one - Amy * Regina working in the studio. Glorious weather-sunny-warm-but not HOT
the news of mandatory plastic glove protection through a wrench in class enthusiasm-but-not for long....
we all listen attentively to Perry's directions. Im smiling as i discover it really is as easy as it looks on HGTV =)
MY HANDS WERE TOO STICKY WITH SLIP THE FIRST DAY OF CREATING OUR MASTER PIECES. Here I am day 2 of class contemplating which shade of grout to use
