ChiPPy!-SHaBBy! Style ~ RUSTY-CRUSTY ARCHED GATE!*!*!

Some weeks ago I spotted a FaB Crusty Rusty "FENCE PIECE OF SORT" in Jan's Booth of ~ **Gracie's Cottage**  I was immediately inspired - thinking it might possibly work out as a FaB Headboard...

FaB Details...







The piece needs some "Tweaking" ~ 
but I just Know It Will Work!!!
I envision a pile of "Anthro" Pillows
 Propped up Against it...  




Speaking of  "Gracie's Cottage"...
"Remembering Summer" ~ a few years back...
"Me"... Jan... & Kathy...
Is January lasting forever or what!*!*!  
Cold... Gray Days... Snow... I'm soooo Out-Of-Sorts!*!*!  I know it's going to be a LONG TIME Before the OutDoor Flea Markets ~ but pics like this make me "hopeful"...


Till Next Time...
