Random Acts of Craftiness

Hope everyone had a safe and happy July 4th!  Now that I can upload photos again, I wanted to share some random projects.
This is the dress form I got from Home Goods earlier this week.  Ain't she pretty?
I also picked up this birdcage while I was there.  I loved the one my sister Kathy (CreativeHomeExpressions.Blogspot.com) did last week.  I gave mine a quick birdy makeover.  I added some faux dollar store moss, hand-stamped muslin ribbon and this crown bird from Michael's.  And of course the pink butterfly.
This frame is a redo of a redo.  I originally spray painted it pink but I gave it a quick ASCP makeover using Antoinette - a softer pink.  The egg images are from The Graphics Fairy.
Last up is another redo of a redo.  This was a Goodwill find.  I had painted it white originally and hand-stamped some French images and such on it.  It got a bit dirty being outside, so I gave it a fresh coat of white paint and then added this image from The Graphics Fairy on both sides.  I added some tea-stained seam binding to both handles.  I have it in my craft room/office holding some supplies.

I love all your new treasures. That little bird cage is so cute and the little dress form is perfect for jewelry. The seam binding on the handles of your container are the perfect finishing touch.

Love that dress form! I was actually looking to go with something similar until I came across the one I wound up getting. It actually works out better for me because the little aprons fit it good.

Great makeovers! I adore the mannequin, the framed bird print is great, too! I've used that same print you have on the tin, too. Sure would be lost without the Graphics Fairy!!

I love each and every one of your re-dos and finds. I think we have the same taste.
