Little Sewing Box . . . {and dear talented friends}

She's a lovely little sewing box, isn't she? I've had her for years . . . and she was old when I brought her home. {sorry to say, dear . . . but it's true. You know it is.}
She is the lovely keeper of my embroidery and tatting . . . {which have been as neglected as little sewing box.}

But we think she deserves better!
She is kind, and unassuming, and practical, and there when I need her.
How many people can we say that about, afterall?

So I took kindly little sewing box to visit a dear friend of mine who is a master of makeovers!

Like most females . . . add a little paint to her face and she feels beautiful . . . just has a whole new outlook on life!

Fairly scampering about the house and yard . . . she is downright giddy!
I think she deserves it.
Don't you?

Rhonda, of Sue and Rhonda Wall Design is the friend and artist who has brought about this amazing transformation. Part of it before my very eyes over a glass of iced tea, just yesterday! I have wished for Rhonda to paint something for me for a very long time! Finally, the right piece peeked out at me from behind the overstuffed chair, and I noticed, and the decision was made. And I love it!

You will have to look at their new website! They do some pretty amazing work! If a homeowner or business around this part of the state wants gorgeous decorative painting, Sue and Rhonda are the ones they call. You'll see why! Scoot! Shoo! Go see!


  1. "help me, rhonda!" that's adorable.

    happy mother's day!

  2. Rhonda did a fabulous job on this, wish she lived closer. How is our young man doing? I did receive your kind note about the good news, I hope you received my return email. I'm just realizing that Blogger does not always deliver my return comments for some reason. ALl my best and will continue to pray.
    Happy Mother's Day to you!

  3. very pretty- you did a great job.

  4. Okay, I have the exact same sewing box. i bought it at a yard sale for $5.00. I have been thinking of what i could do to it and yours looks lovely!! thanks for the inspiration!!

  5. Wow, Debbie! Unlike your great shopping skill, I am a storekeeper's dream. I just walk up and pay whatever they're asking. I'm pretty sure I paid . . . don't faint, now . . . $30 several years ago for my little dear. This was after several years of lament about leaving without one at an antique store inside Disneyland that was priced at $80! I know!

  6. How is it that I still haven't seen this in person?

    By the way, my word verification is "sopiggy". Is blogger trying to tell me something? ;)
