Vintage Bears for Sale and Kitchen Table Update

My daughter is in the process of downsizing her collection of vintage bears. She asked me if I would list them on eBay for her. There are two Bearington Bears and one Boyd's Bear for sale. Click on the "My eBay" in the right sidebar to go to my eBay page. They would make a great Mother's Day gift.

I haven't posted anything on by blog during this past week. It's not that I'm getting lazy, but I'm trying to finish projects that I had started. I am finished working on repainting my kitchen table but still have to finish repainting the six chairs to match. What a long process it is when you work days and have to wait for the many coats of paint and poly to dry. I'm not going to post a picture until I'm completely finished. I still have to find a fabric to reupholster the seat cushions. Does anyone know a good on-line fabric store that sells upholstery fabric? I'm not having much luck in my area. My only fabric store around here is Joann's and they don't really have any "prim" fabrics on their upholstery racks. I made a "prim" prairie dress that I will be hanging on my peg board shelf that my daughter donated to me this weekend. I also made a small embroidered herb ditty bag which will hand on one of the pegs. I need to repaint the shelf in my favorite black paint. You'll see a photo when it's finished.

Yesterday my daughter Jenn and I went to Buckler's Craft Fair. It's a country craft fair that travels around the southern states throughout the year. They come to the Fort Myers area four times a year. They always sell such wonderful country/primitive items. We were disappointed with this one. There were not as many vendors as we've seen in previous years. I guess the economy is having an effect on crafters also. Needless to say, I only purchased a pip-berry candle ring which I will also hang from my peg board. Usually I would find unique wooden items such as peg board shelves, quilt racks, wood cabinets, etc., but this time nothing drew my attention. Even the handmade quilt vendor was not there.

Well it's time to get out my paint brush again. Then maybe I'll downsize some of my crafting supplies that are taking up all the room in my sewing room closet and list them on eBay today also. I'm looking at a large plastic container filled with Christmas ribbons that I had bought to make bows for glass block lights a couple of years ago. If anyone has any use for them, check out my eBay later today. They are perfect for Christmas wreath bows.

Hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend.

Good luck with your Ebay auctions. I hope you get great bids.

I'm sorry about Bucklers. I know how disappointed you must have been. I can't wait to see the finished table and chairs :)
