I spent way too much time getting my space together this time. I was at Rose's on Sunday and then again for many hours on Monday. I was sure wishing the the crew would just sweep my stuff up with everything else and put me out of my agony.
The June sale at Rose's starts on Thursday, and my space is set. This will be my last appearance at Rose's for awhile as I only signed on for a two month stint. I think that the space looks appropriately hard and metaly without the softness of the shabbies. It also is properly filled to maximize wall space and real estate.
I used Ford Model A V-8 hubcaps to fill spaces above and next to a doorway.
I really like the Folk Art map of Minnesota divided into counties that I used to fill the space above the 2nd doorway in my place.
The space on top of my stainless steel counter remained remarkably decluttered, unlike any flat space in my home or office.
I added these 1925ish Munsing Wear underwear advertising placards to the 3rd lobe of my space to soften the stainless a little. More etched mirror panels are visible behind the display.
It has been a learning experience in dressing my own space. Maybe they'll invite me back to Second Hand Rose for a second guest stint sometime in the future. I just hope sales go well and I won't have to move all that iron. I will be more appreciative and supportive of Gypsy Lea's because the crew makes my thinking a lot easier.
