What a boy will do for a video game & cell phone

What a boy will do for a video game and cell phone

Well the stories starts with Nathan's grades~

Nathan's grades dropped and he was making a bad grade, so that meant the video games and cell phones get taken away. He was without for a week and a half. Well Nathan had been keeping his hair long and even threw a fit the last time I cut cause I took too much off. He wore a hat for 2

Dad needed a haircut and when he got home he told Nathan he would give him $50.00 if he got his hair cut short. Nathan said 'Uhhhh NO'. Then dad said if you get your haircut short I will give you back your game and cell phone. He thought about it for about 5 minutes and said 'OK'. Well it just amazes me what a boy will do to get his treasures He he did not even wear a hat or complain when I was done...

Show & Tell Monday~ Our Trip Back

Our trip back~
My daughter came to visit last weekend, she decided to live with her father for a while in Fisk, Missouri. She is growing up so fast and becoming such a grown lady. We had the most fun on the trip up, we chatted and sang as she took photo's of the city she misses so much. We stopped at really neat Antique Mall and of course she sat in the car listening to her music and chatting to friends. Little Miss Madison came in with me tho and we found lots of pretty treasures.
Here is some pics of our fun trip~ Enjoy!

Papier Mache Vintage Dress Form

I found this great vintage dress form at a antique mall. I papier mached this great piece and made it a one of a kind treasure~
After I tore and cut vintage papers, and vintage style scrapbooking paper, I mixed up my glue. I use a flour and water mixture. I carefully placed each piece of paper on the dress form. Then I let dry for about 2 hours.

During that time I made a beautiful vintage style tag with vintage papers and in my collection I found a great heart charm that compliments this treasures.
I looked through my lace collection and found the perfect lace trim and tied on the tag.
My end results are just charming and beautiful!

Truly a unique treasure at Shabby in Pink Boutique!

Christmas Bells

I heard the bells on Christmas DayTheir old, familiar carols play,And wild and sweetThe words repeatOf peace on earth, good-will to men!
And thought how, as the day had come,The belfries of all Christendom Had rolled alongThe unbroken song Of peace on earth, good-will to men!
Till, ringing, singing on its way The world revolved from night to day,A voice, a chime,A chant sublime Of peace on earth, good-will to men!
Then from each black, accursed mouthThe cannon thundered in the South, And with the sound The Carols drowned Of peace on earth, good-will to men!
And in despair I bowed my head;‘There is no peace on earth,’ I said;‘For hate is strong,And mocks the song Of peace on earth, good-will to men!’
Then pealed the bells more loud and deep:‘God is not dead; nor doth he sleep!The Wrong shall fail,The Right prevail,With peace on earth, good-will to men!’
Wishing all my friends a Very Merry Christmas & Happy New Years! Let next year be better for everyone!

My Daughter's First Christmas Play

My Daughter's Christmas Play
Samantha and I had so much fun making her costume for her first Christmas play at school. She was picked as a puppy dog for the cast. We picked up a pair of plain black pants and felt. She modeled as I cut spots for her outfit. I used a headband and glued ears & a bow to it. She got a kick out the puppy dog tail. She was so cute and was not nervous. Did not miss a beat through the play. Well the poor thing got the flu bug later that night....
It was a evening I will never forget, she made me glow!

Welcome to Shabby in Pink Boutique
