Let's Get Shabby - Challenge #15

MUSIC is the theme at Let's Get Shabby this month.
That's right!!!
Shabby is not something I can say that I've tried before.
But never say NEVER...
It was time to remove the plastic wrapper from some of the paints on the "scary" rack. The cute little dabbers and spongy tools were also gathering dust. And I went to town with the distresser tool!
I want to thank the DT over there for that nudge. Of course it helps that I have a couple of photos of my mother as a child. And this is one of my favorites...

Here's the photo...
And some details...

I like the little blue tiles because I think her kitchen would have looked like that...

Thanks again! That wasn't so scary after all...


  1. I just love that photo and the blue flower spray. Thanks for playing along with us at shabby.

  2. HI Nora
