I have not been around much lately in Blog land.......I'm still painting. Walls are complete but I've started on furniture. I still have some wood pieces but a lot is getting painted white....to shabby it up a little.
 Its looking good!
I will visit you all again soon! 

Yesterday I took some time out to create something for LESSology. 
The challenge this month is 'Flights of Fantasy'

I have to show you the before pics first..........
My friend Mandy from Scrappy-Go-Lucky gave me this jewellery stand last year, (she bought it from a thrift store) with the idea of seeing how I could transform it. This challenge was the perfect opportunity! 

Angel wings and some doilies. 

So armed with a glue gun , some lace and a box of doilies this is what I came up with.

Look how pretty it is now!

I removed the jewellery holder part and the skirt, then spray painted it white.

There are only two items that are new on my angel ........the pink doily and the heart charm, every thing else is recycled. The Rhine stone bow is an old brooch that cliped onto a shoe to dress it up.

For the skirt I layered two doilies then gathered some pretty lace over them.

I cut this flower from some lace fabric.

Happy Crafting everyone.....Hope to be back soon.
