Some Flea Market Finds!

This is a quick post but I wanted to show ya what I found at a little flea market we went to on Sat. Look at this champaigne bucket, LOVE IT and I thought it was a good deal for $20.00, it's so heavy! I added some shredded paper and just popped one of my sweet little snowmen in it for Christmas, I just love it!
I couldn't get to this lampshade fast enough when I saw it, the lace is so pretty on it! The pic below is with it lit.............( in case your wondering $10.00 for the lampshade)

Oops you'll have to turn your head sideways for this one, sorry, I picked up these dishes for $10.00 and it included 3 platters and a sugar and creamer, it isn't a complete set but I will just mix them with others I have. Have a great week, I'm off to enjoy time with my Mom (;

Where my tree ended up!!

I don't think I have ever moved a tree around as much as I have this one, LOL, I tried really hard to make it work the way it was but there was just not enough room so I had to move everything back to it's original place and it's finally done!! My Mom and Dad will be here today and I have lots to do so I hope you enjoy the few pic's I was able to take and now I need to get busy with all the other stuff that I haven't been able to get done. Merry Christmas (;
P.S. These pic's don't do it justice it looks prettier in person, I had a difficult time getting a good pic and you can hardly see my lights ):

I sure wish you all were here!

Well I should know how to do this posting by now but I usually put the pic's on first and this time I decided to write first so all my text went to the bottom and do you think I know how to move it NOPE I sure don't LOL! So enjoy the pic's and then you can read why I need you all here!

I sure wish you all were here to help me decide where to put my tree, I don't have enough room, LOL, I want it in my living rm but since I moved my living rm to my dining rm I don't have enough space for my tree, I did this to make more rm for Thanksgiving dining and I really like it this way but where to put the tree! Do you think you could stop by and help me, pleeeese? I just keep standing in the middle of the rms thinking hmmmm what do I do now, move it all back the other way??

Happy December!!

Did you all forget about me?? It seems like I haven't posted forever, I have been so busy . I'm trying to catch up around here we went out of town the day after Thanksgiving so I am just now getting my Christmas decorating done, I don't even have a tree yet, I usually decorate before TG but decided to wait this year, just let me say never again!! I have moved my dining rm to my living room, I did this for TG and I like it for now, the only problem is where to put the tree??
This lovely chair, actually I bought two of them, to try out my new paint sprayer, well I needed something to try it out on right, LOL, by the way I LOVE the sprayer, it worked perfectly! The picture below is the after, shhhh don't tell but it still needs another coat so don't look to close, they came with the green velvet seat cushions which I do like but I am hoping when my Mom comes for Christmas she will make me some new slips out of linen or something, keeping my fingers crossed for that!

My buffet which I'm still tweaking my decorations on...................

Oh and my dining rm table, notice its a different table, I brought my farm table up to my house from the bunkhouse, it's nice for a change, my centerpiece is a pretty sled I bought at Marshalls and I stuffed it full of my snow men. The pic below is the same as the first one but I loaded them wrong and I had the ugly chair as the first one, I couldn't do that yuk! Well thats it for now, I hope everyone had a happy TG holiday and hopefully I will be back with some more holiday pic's soon (:

Look What I found!

I know everyone probably already has one but I didn't and I wanted one, look at the trophy cup I found, you will never guess where I found it, Homegoods and it was on clearance for $16.00, I have seen alot of bloggers displaying them and I couldn't find any until yesterday, I think it looks vintage too. Sorry about the dark pic again, we have overcast weather here again so it's hard to get good lighting.

I have also seen this idea around and thought it was so cute, I was in a store the other day and the lady was giving old books away so I took some to try this out, I removed the old covers to reaveal the binding, tied a ribbon on and added the flower on top that's it! I hope everyone has a great week, I still haven't used my paint sprayer, I did test it on a piece of wood but it has been so windy here so I wanted to wait for a good day , it seems like it is going to work out really good, no sputtering paint out and it made a really even coat onto the wood (;

Rose Dishes and Painting!

I wanted to show you all some dishes I hung above the mirror which is above my buffet, geesh, I had put my rose dishes away and I couldn't stand it anymore, I love them, what was I thinking!! Aaahhh much better now (;I also bought myself an early Christmas present, I can't wait to try this paint sprayer out but I haven't taken it out of the box yet I'm kind of intimidated, it hooks up to our air compresser, but I have to figure out how and where I'm going to use it, LOL! Wish me luck ...........Have a great weekend, we woke up to low 50's today!!

A Picture Frame turned Chalk Board

I just wanted to show you this cute picture frame on a stand I picked up at Marshalls , it was hot pink so I spray painted it a cream color and then painted the cardboard piece that would go behind the picture with some chalkboard paint, I think it turned out kind of cute (; We are getting a cold front here today, yippee, but that means that it's dreary here so my walls look really dark in the pic's but I don't care bring on the cold weather, I can't wait!!

Some Pretty Toile Pillows!

I was at Marshall's the other day and found these toile pillows from Waverly and fell in love with them, I think they will be perfect for Christmas, they also had them in blue, which of course made me think of Cindy, I had left her a comment about it and come to find out she had purchased them too and was posting about them today so go have a look see at hers also! Gosh it almost felt like we shopped together, LOL, hey Cindy when are we goin on that shopping trip/vacation anyways (;

Just wanted to show you my new endtables, they still need to be painted but aren't they pretty, I love the legs on them! I am not sure what is going on with my posting but now when I upload photos it doesn't show me the pic only writing and I can only add my writing to the bootom of the screen, does anyone know why cause I can't figure out what I have done, so frustrating!!

Happy Halloween

I figured I better get these photos posted before the holiday was already over! I meant to do this last week but ya know how that goes sometimes, I took these before my new buffet cabinet was in my dining rm so you will notice my old cabinet still in there. I hope everyone has a fun and safe Halloween (;

She's Here!!

Well she has arrived and I love my new buffet , isn't she pretty! I have always wanted one and back in June I went into the store and there she was but a little too pricey for me so we said our goodbyes and I moved on, then last week I went back and to my surprise she was still there waiting for me and her price had been marked to half off! Yeah! So I figured it was meant to be (: I know she is not perfect but I don't care, my only decision is to paint or not to paint?? I am enjoying her at the moment with the natural wood, what do you think?

My Pumpkin Topiary!

Well I have seen quit a few people making these pumpkin topiaries, I thought they were cute and it was something I couldn't kill so it was a perfect idea for me also I was in Michaels over the weekend and the pumpkins were 60% off sooooo here it is, I made two but I don't have them set where I want them yet, thats another post cause I have something new that hasn't been delivered to my house yet and I want to set them on either side of it. Just in case someone didn't see them elsewhere, I used a wooden dowel to keep them together, put some stickers on them and that's about it, so simple that's the kind of crafting projects I like! Oh and the urn came from Walmart . I am so excited that we finally cooled off here in S. Florida, a cold front moved through yesterday and I am enjoying the change although it doesn't last long but I will take whatever I can get (;

Sweet Dreaming!

Just thought I would show some of these pretty beds and linens I was dreaming about tonight, the first two headboards are available on Target .com and I think they were $399.00 approx. and they have free shipping, I looked at them a couple of weeks ago so I can't remember the exact amount (; I really like the second one!
Wouldn't it also be pretty with a slipcover like this one , I am in love with this bed, everything in this pic is just perfect, I would even leave the chandelier there, I could just move my legs to the side to sleep, LOL!! The rest of the pic's below are from Bella Notte Linens.

Love this..................aaahhhh what a dream!!
I hope everyone has sweet dreams and a great weekend(;
