BEFORE & AFTER: NEW PEEPS IN MY POSSE

Drake doesn’t want them, but I do.  I am proud to profess, I have new peeps in my posse 🙂

LAURA BEHIND THE SCENES
TALK TO THE HAND
KEEP TWEETING

Laura gave me the inside on Drake. I can’t take credit. Ask me about music and I am bound to tell you #bobmarley #onelove or that I loved the music from Broadway’s “Book Of Mormon..” I love the show and the thumbs up for gays. I give thumbs up, they give me ruby slippers. More on that later but  if you’ve seen it, you might agree Laura’s giving the Hasa Diga Eobowai here. She apparently doesn’t want anymore peeps herself spent the morning trying to raise our numbers. The limit for the day is 1,000.  I am 52 twitters strong @talktigerlilys. Follow me friends clearly I need more.

Here’s some interesting facts: I found this on the website expandedramblings.com:

Arguably to get to the land of #beliebers I have some distance to cover. I return back to the yellow brick road and the friends I met along the way and one that is a new twitter friend and overall blog fan. Enter Susan Jensen Smith @yourhomebetter. She recently shared my story:

http://yourhomeonlybetter.com/the-wizard-of-art-and-upcycling/

The blog is called the “Wizard-of-Art and Upcycling. I am not sure I could say it any better myself. This does after all have to do with my Wizard of Oz booth. Here goes nothing…

BEFORE
SOFA IN SAD SHAPE
BOUGHT ON THE CHEAP $35.00

Here’s the sofa. It was bought on the cheap. I love to give to charity. That ‘s what this project was about. Design On A Dime for Housing Works. Everything I put into the booth raised money for the cause. I had to be resourceful. The upholstery we do in our custom workroom, http://www.tigerlilysgreenwich.com, is artisan in nature. It can be pricey and here I had  to save a buck. To cut the cost, I literally cut out the back.

CUT THE COST
CUT THE BACK

 Once the back was out, the sofa became a day-bed. Less fabric, less labor and less out of pocket for me. We upholstered the daybed in Robert Allen’s Tularosa in Stirling.

AFTER:
DYNAMO DAYBED

The Dynamo Daybed debuted in my Wizard of Oz booth. The new Queens in my posse loved it. It got two ruby slipper’s up.

IF THE SHOE FITS
ROCK IT

I generally finish my blog with a sell. I can’t sell the daybed. It sold.  I can pitch ny new friends,  Second Shout Out. Find some of my favorite “afters,” vintage finds and one-of-a-kind pieces at their website http://www.secondshoutout.com. A portion of the proceeds if you by my goods, go directly to me or pays Laura’s salary. Support our cause! Buy.

To all my new friends, peeps in my posse, thank you for sharing in this journey with me…If the shoe fits rock it! Thank you all for continued support. I am overwhelmed with gratitude.
