Mamie Jane's, that inspired me to try to create something new out of things I already had. First, a little about Mamie Jane's. It is named for the blog author's great-grandmother, Mamie, a beautiful woman who is pictured on the blog's home page. Since I have such wonderful memories of days spent with my own grandmother, I decided I wanted to explore this blog more.
Jane takes all sorts of mismatched "junk" that she has collected and combines it to make amazing furnishings and accessories for her home. Some of the pieces she starts with are things that most people would throw away and yet, once she puts them together, they look as if they belong in the Pottery Barn catalogue! I love the plate displays made from old drawers and the craft storage unit she showed how to make in her January 9th post. She even used rusty old trowels (found for 50 cents each) to make clever photo holders. I hope you'll check out her blog...the link is on my sidebar.
This blog entry is featured on the "Blog Party" at Savvy Southern Style this week...hope you'll pay a visit to Kim's blog!p.s. These photos are the first I've taken for the blog with my new camera...it took me 180 trial shots to get them but I think I'm finally starting to get the hang of it...lots more practice needed!
