A few highlights

Today I spent the morning at my booth at the Vintage Flea. I have a few new favorites I wanted to highlight that I dropped off today. This amazing soup tureen was one of my finds this week (Ladle and all).

This is a cherub wall hanging perched in a vintage crock. Lately I have been seeing numbers used in decorating all over. This bean crock has a number 3 imprinted in it.

Meakin and Johnson Brothers cups.

Sitting on top of a pair of hull ramekins.

A recent find also was a set of 4 Au Gratin dishes.

A few shots of my booth after some fluffing.

Transformation Tuesday

OK,During one of my many outings at the thrift stores I found these beauties. Well to someone else they might not have looked like much but to me they were 2 diamonds in the rough. This mirror I have held onto and held onto until first I had the time to paint and second had a spot for it. The little shelf unit was one of my more recent finds.

It took some primer and a coat of white semi-gloss paint and there it was. I found a perfect piece for my boys newly painted bathroom. The little tins I found at TJ-Maxx for just 3.99. Obviously someone else found #'s 1,2&3 but I won't complain I had to have them.

This is the new white shower curtain I picked up from Target'.

This is the boys bathroom pretty much completed except I haven't had a chance to paint the letter "M" white yet.

There's that gold mirror that was just waiting for a new coat of white paint. Transforming an old piece is much more exciting to me than just picking a new one up off the shelf.

What do you think?

~I think the sunshine has gotten to me~

I think the sunshine has gotten to me. As you may have noticed I usually favor pale greens and robin egg blues, but I am loving all the yellows I am seeing this spring.
This is one of my most recent bulletin boards isn't he cute.
He's at the Flea now.
Every new season is in need of a new favorite purse. Well I fell in love with this one as soon as I saw it. The sales woman said it was mustard I definitely disagree. It is canary yellow in my eyes.

And yes you seen him before but I could not leave him out of my new favorite yellow things.

Awaiting Easter....

This year we are having some amazing families over after church Easter Sunday for a fun afternoon. The forecast is looking great. So here is some of the early prep work.

Basket of carrots (our lunch utensils inside) that will sit on the buffet.

These little cuties are corsages for the female guest at our Easter lunch after church on Sunday. My girlfriend at http://www.thepineappleroom.blogspot.com/
made these for St. Patrick's Day and Easter they are to cute I had to give them a try.

There are a varieties of colors.

I found these letters so I strung them together but they were a little plain so I added some of the same flowers to them and what a difference.

Close Up!

These little guys are in my dining room they are sitting on one of my new favorite scarf I found this spring at Old Navy.
I hope everyone has an amazing Easter!
