Placing A Treasure
Saturday, October 25, 2008
I thought my purchases were complete as I was meandering around the store for the hundredth time. Deep in thought and feeling pleased about my items, it dawned on me that I hadn't noticed the artwork! The first one I found was the water scene with the tree. It is signed, dated June 28, 1948 with the location being Arendal Southern Norway. The last painting I spotted was signed and the title is called...Isolated Church Switzerland... This painting has turned out to be my anniversary present to my husband of 15 years, today! Besides loving the scenery in the painting it struck a cord because of the cross. My husband happened to propose to me in La Jolla, California at a place called Mt. Solidad. It is a mountain that overlooks the city of La Jolla with a historic cross sitting on top. Even though this is not Mt Solidad it reminds me of it! I think it will remind him too!
Marie-Therese Gown GIVEAWAY !!!!!!!

I could just weep! Look at this amazing talent! My daughters would trade me in for a more talented mom. If they could see these pictures, oh dear! I better finish their costumes, even then I will feel so inadequate! ugh! The costume is beyond gorgeous, but look at the setting! Just pure "WOW"! I shall weep into my second cup of tea! :o)
Look at this bench! So charming.
Liked the black lamp shade on the marble lamp, I am now wondering if it would work in my husbands office? Would love an opinion...something to think about.I really enjoy artwork. I found 2 pieces!!!
I also thought the green metal stool was really cool! I love adding a bit of retro to my home. I like the eclectic touch it gives to my cottage style decorating. The great thing about vintage shopping is that you truely don't know what you are going to find. I also love the conversation it sparks....(where would you put it, is the size right, color, style ect...) Simply- pure fun!

Worlds Longest Yard Sale
Sunday, October 12, 2008
Thank goodness I have 5 days to calm down. It was a ton of fun to watch. I actually had no idea it even existed but, two of my friends called me tonight to tell me to watch. Are they really friends? They called me during the show and now want to plan a road trip for next August!!! My darling husband laughed when I told him!!! But hey, you never know, I think it would be a blast. I am not so sure he thinks I could control myself! He does know me so well!!

www.amazon.com " A is for Apron 25 Fresh & Flirty Designs", by Nathalie Mornu .
Can't wait to show my girls and figure out how to sew!
We had a large honey stained TV cabinet that was begging for a makeover!
After 12 years, 4 kids, a cat, dog and experiencing several moves, plus a year in storage, it had been naturally distress (minor bumps and bruises). With such a prominent position in my children's family room I decided the cabinet could benefit from a fresh coat of paint.
With a good coat of Prime Lock Plus primer/sealer (no sanding was needed-oh yea!!) and 2 coats of the fantastic paint color "Michelle White" the makeover was almost complete! The finishing touch was adding 4 brushed nickel knobs (only $1.39 each) to finish it off. Giddy!! I was so excited to unveil my Sunday project to my husband and kids!!! Now, instead of being 12 years old, it feels like I have a brand new cabinet!! It's such a good feeling getting to do the happy dance without buying something new! It definitely makes the hubby join me in doing the dance. Even better!
