Creating Bliss

Hi! My name is Kathy...Welcome to my little world of creating Bliss!
Although my former career was Fashion Design, I have found my true passion to be in my Home and Garden.My love of flowers and everything French has led me to create a business I call "Fleurs". 
You can find my collection of antique and vintage finds at both Monticello and Stars Antique Malls in Portland, Oregon. I'm looking forward to sharing with you some creative design ideas that hopefully will inspire you to see and appreciate  your possessions in a different way...I would like to share a most recent project that I've been wanting to create for a long time, and the pieces finally came together to make it happen! Enjoy...

Here is the finished project....My own little Gardenshed to enjoy not only looking at from my kitchen window, but it's functional as well!! Believe it or not...this was once a bird aviary with a house full of doves!
I found it on Craigslist and it was only about a mile down the road from my house!! Next problem was how to get it home...After some interesting challenges and worries that it might end up on my burn pile, I finally succeeded in getting it on and off the trailer in one piece!! Here are some pics of the process it went thru...
 Here's the Bird Aviary in it's original form...
 Got my spot for it all marked and ready to go...
 Found a flatbed trailer!!!
 Got it off the trailer!!!!!!!!!
 Convinced my wonderful husband that it was a necessity in my life ;)))
 Almost finished!!!
Voila!! It's done!!

I'm looking forward to sharing more ideas with you soon...I am leaving for a long awaited vacation to Hawaii, but when I get back I will share my most recent treasure hunting finds...Aloha!!
