Some Things That Came Home With Me On Recent Visit To Posh on Palm!
(Love that Store!)
|This lamp was reconstructed using parts from three different lamps, |
and the shades were embellished with vintage laces and flowers.
|She has found a home in my Antique Bedroom...love my vintage blocks from a local antique store here in Brandon.|
|Are these not just the cutest glitter birds!?..... I love their curly feathers!|
|Love these worn out pink ballet slippers. Have wanted a pair for a long while, so on this trip they came home with me!|
I hung them with the roses I've dried out and perserving that hubby got for me for Mother's Day in my sewing studio!

The Most Entertaining Sillies That Happen Around Here! :)
Was taking a break from sewing out on my back porch,
when all of a sudden there was this commotion going on in the large bird cage we have out here...
for my bird who was actually born in that nest right here at home! She is 6 now.
We had 15 of them at one time until a raccoon got the cage door open one night...was so sad!
"ShabbyGirl" is my sweet little Finch, and she has just discovered again
Mr. Frog has come to visit uninvited...she is not really too fond of Mr. Frog.......
"I'm almost there.....ohohoh ... water fun!" says Mr. Frog
Rut Row Mr. Frog....you gonna be in troooouble!
.............Shabbygirl is a bit ticked off he's in her water dish!
She looks at me like she's saying, "Mom, What's Up With This Green Slippery Dude!"
Mr. Frog in the water dish cooling off and just hanging out!
He has made visits every evening for about the last 4 weeks now hehe!
Well she ain't having it, so heads to her nest!
Says, she ain't coming out till he leaves!
GGGGGRRRRRRR!!!! "Is he gone yet!?"
What!!!???? Whad I do!?? Geeeessshhhh!
This is what she always does, she ducks her face down and sticks her little butt up in the air thinking,
if I can't see you, you can't see me! She's a bit miffed at the moment!
Frog ducks down too...."Can she see me now!?"
NO...but I can smell you! HA!
Mr. Frog tries to duck down when I take the dish out of the cage to change Shabbygirls water ...
hehe, like he thinks I'm won't see him either! haha....
Off you go Mr. Frog! ShabbyGirl wants her water dish back!
I'd be careful if I was you...she might just take to pecking you to death!
haha...I ain't afraid of her!.......later!! :)
I must be BORED LOL!
TATA TILL LATER!

A Vintage Treasure of Memories
Here is the newest addition to my crazy obession with collecting vintage mannequins...acutally, mannequins period!
This is Lady Annabelle!
Found this little sweetie at my favorite local antique shop....
the lady there teases me with things she knows I like lol, this is the second one
I have bought from her now, I need to stay away from there for a long while,
because I just know she is working on another just to entice me again!
Don't care for the gold wooden base on this one, so one day I'll redo it!
Totally love the rest of her!
Lots of ads for corsets and ladies under clothing...I love the fashions back then!
Don't you just adore the fashions back in the day!? I do TOO! :)
Even a sewing machine ad! I just think she is so UNIQUE!!!

Cameo Kids Will Be Closed From Now Until Mid August
We apologize for the inconvience this may cause, but we just
found out we have to move. For the next 60 days, we have a
lot of work to do to down size, get rid of, pack, and get ourselves
moved, so I won't be able to do any custom orders. If there is something
you really want that is already pre-made, just give us a call at 813-651-9402
to order. I can ship things that are ready to ship but just will not have time
to do anything new. All existing orders will be completed and shipped soon.
Thank you for understanding! :)
We'll be back as soon as I can get our home
settled and life back to normal!
TATA for Now!

Can Anybody Say WOW!
This past Saturday I attended the "Fancy Flea" in Lakeland, FL. It took place in the historic district in the downtown area on Kentucky Ave. The street bumps right up to the lovely Munn Park. I must say this was the most Fabulous flea market I have ever been too! It was two blocks long with tents set up on both sides of the street! I swear, if I had had the money I could of bought something in every single booth! I also would have needed a U-Haul to take my treasures home!
I met so many friends from Facebook and Blog Land that I have been following, and or friends with for a while! Several folks I know had booths there and I made many new friends also. It was great fun, a perfect sunny warm day, the perfect setting, and the most fabulous stuff Ever!
I took tons of pictures acutually filling up my camera, my cell phone, and then used my sisters cell. Even with that, there was a ton that I missed...bad thing was though, because I was so busy and excited taking pictures, I missed seeing some things I have been looking for and saw them in my pictures! Drats, darn, dang it! Oh well, they do this event twice a year so they'll be back this fall and maybe I'll be able to score on that one! Ok with no futher babbling, Let's See the Pictures! You can meet some of my very talented, sweet friends too! This is going to be tough because I have so many great pictures of great stuff and there is no way I can post them all so I'll show my favs!
