New projects with a French theme!

All of the following is new in my craft studio. 
 I have been busy this week painting and crafting away.
Here is some of what I have been working on!

New white shelf that I bought at a yard sale for $5.00
Small shelf with metal scrolled wall bracket for $2.00 thrift shop find.
Newly painted Family Heirloom Chippendale style desk
The 12x12 clipboard was painted and distressed, and will be for 
displaying favorite scrapbooked layouts.
                                                             Decoupaged French label
                                                 Crackled peg board, just added assorted
                          knobs I had laying around to hold shabby necklaces ready for my Etsy Shop
           Magnet board filled with Pictures of my mother and other ancestors,
              tags and findings.  The silhouette is German antique store stock!
Ceramic dish filled with shredded music sheets,
chandelier crystals
dominoes and antique pins.
This wonderful enameled holder.  Oh the
things I will put in here!

This print is titled 'the nest' and is an old toile style painting.
I am very happy with the results and feel like it is the
best eye candy at my house.  I just love to stare at this
wall now, plus I have added 4 more drawers and some shelves
to my room for organization purposes. Someday I will take down
the wallpaper border, but that would mean I need to redo all the
walls in the room.  I don't have time for that, because I need to
start crafting for Christmas!  This is my early Christmas present
to myself.  I might show a post of what I am storing in the drawers
I am the 'queen' of this room and I Love it!
This post can be viewed along with many other wonderful ideas
for the home.  It is like a beautiful online magazine right at your fingertips.

Wow. I looked at all the blogs. I don't know if you know that your desk is a Governor Winthrop. Was it Mahogany? I used to have an Antique shop, besides being a Designer, hotel and restaurant owner.
You are a very talented Lady..
