Farm Fresh Stool

When I purchased this little homemade wooden stool, I had no intention whatsoever of keeping it.  My plans were to make it pretty and sell it. 


Well, now that I have made it pretty, I don’t think I can part with it.


At least for now anyway! 


And there is something else that I purchased that I’m not letting go…...


Isn’t he cute!!  I have him hanging on my kitchen door and that’s where he’s staying!  


  This morning I went to one of our local Amish stands to purchase a few more flowers so that I could finish with my plantings.  I bought this beautiful purple flower called Heliotropium.


It has the most amazing smell.  I can see why it’s called a “Fragrant Delight”. 


I have it sitting on my screened-in porch so that I can enjoy not only its beauty but also the fragrance.   I am finally done with all the scrubbing, cleaning and planting on the outside.   Now I can relax and enjoy!


Are you ready for the holiday weekend?   We’re having a get together here on Saturday with family and friends.  I’m looking forward to it…Lauren’s coming home…YAY!  Not only do I get to see my daughter and son-in-law, I even get to see my granddoggie!!


He’s waiting patiently for Daddy to come home because he’s packed and is ready to come see his Grandma and Pa Pa…LOL ! 

As always, thanks for stopping by and I hope you all have a safe and wonderful holiday weekend.

Frenchy Writing Desk and Chair

Hello everyone, how was your weekend?   I spent most of mine working  in the garage trying to make a dent in my ever growing pile of trash soon to be treasures.  I did finish one project that had been driving me crazy thinking what to do with it.   It wasn’t until I found Lisa at CreateInspire giving me the inspiration that I needed to make-over this desk.    002

Her blog is full of inspiration with the most gorgeous make-overs!  If you have never visited her blog, you should!  You will be in for a real treat and will leave feeling so inspired just like I do. 


Now when I’m in my garage, I stand there and look at my pile of trash soon to be treasures and ask myself “what would Lisa do”! 


One more project down and I’ve lost count on how many more are left because I keep adding to my pile of trash.  I picked up a few more furniture pieces this weekend which I will share in another post. 


Now, go check out Lisa’s blog….you will not be disappointed! 

As always thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful week.

I’m in LOVE with this make-over!

   Hello Everyone!  Just a quick post to share with you an end table make-over that I bought last Friday evening at a yard sale.    I am so happy with the way it turned out!  Check it out….. 


….this is the before. 


I painted it with Miss Mustard Seed (MMS) yellow milk paint.  I stenciled the front of the doors and then applied MMS antique wax to it.   


I wish I could keep it but it’s for sale. :(  I have already taken it to my booth.   

Below is a picture of all of the items that I bought at the yard sale last Friday night…..more make-overs are already in the works! 


Thanks for stopping by and I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Furnitures Painted and Auction Finds

Hello everyone!  It’s been a while since my last post.  I’m finding it hard to keep up with blog postings and keeping my booth stocked with inventory.  If any of you could give me some helpful advice on how to manage both I would love to hear it. 

  Because I was in need of more inventory for my booth, Charlie took off from work on Wednesday and we went to an auction.   I was the winning bidder on some great finds.   Some of my purchases I have already cleaned up, painted and have put them in my booth.   

I bought the little green table, below, at the auction.  Because I loved the color of the table, I just gave it a good scrub down.  I also purchased the yellow vintage kitchen scale. 


Another awesome purchase I made was this vintage rocking chair.


Again, because I love the color that was already on the rocker,  I just gave it a good scrub down.  It was rather dirty!   I have to let you in on a little secret, it would not break my heart if it doesn’t sell!  I would love to bring it back home. 

I also bought the primitive rocker, below, at the auction.   Now, I did paint this rocker.  Because black really sells in my booth, I chose to paint it black.        


In my last post, I shared with you furniture pieces below that I was going to paint. 


Well, I painted them and they too are already in my booth. 



When I left my booth today, this is what it looked like. 


I have a few more auction pieces below that I bought and hopefully this weekend I will get a chance to work on them.  


As always, thanks for stopping by and I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
