Love My Santa Picture

Big Tree


This is a small tree in my Dinning room.

It's Beginning to Look Like Christmas

I added some dollar store ornaments to my dishes that cost only $2.00 for four.

Fall Table

If the temperatures would cool, I would be ready for fall.

weekend Find

This was my $3.00 find at a local Goodwill.  It didn't come with a bow. I am not really sure what it is.
Now it makes a perfect holder for fresh flowers. Guess what? These are not fresh , but they look beautiful on my breakfast table.

Come on Fall

I am wishing for fall. I made this yesterday thinking maybe cooler days will come. I hate to say but it looks like we are in for several more 100 degree days. I can dream of fall!

My Inbox

This is my new inbox for my desk at school. It was a yard sale find. It was tan and looked like a ruler with a red apple on top. Your classic teacher style. I want it to say " me" so white spray paint, ribbons, buttons and bling. I think it is just right now!

Memo Board

This is a memo board that my daughter made. I am working on mine but it still need some work. Guess what it's made from? A Dollar Tree cookie sheet. We wrapped the cookie sheet in material, added ribbons, buttons, etc... We bought round magnets at Wal-mart and added buttons. They are fun to make and cost little. They would be great at a desk, kitchen and who knows where else.

What To Do

My niece also gave me this cute little table. I think it is so cute, but would it look better white? The finish is in great shape so do I paint it or not? Let me know what you think.

Another Trash to Treasure

My niece brought me a box of junk because she was moving. I really liked these but they were just plain. I embellished them just a little. I put the sassy girl look to them and now they are great. What would we do without hot glue?

Paint Party

This is my first try at painting on a canvas. I really enjoyed the process and had great company at the King's Mansion in Heber Springs. We are starting a group of crazy artist (I guess that would describe us.) We had a lot of laughs last night.

Coffee Anyone?

This is my new (used) patio table/chairs. I found this at Ruby Jane's in Greenbrier, Arkansas. It was calling my name so it now lives at my house. I love to have morning coffee under the ceiling fan. It's just me and the birds. This is my "me" time.

Found A Little Bird

A friend found this little bird for me while we were out junking. I really like her, so I made her a home. It has some of my favorite things: vintage buttons, old clip earrings, lace, flowers, shells and ribbon.

I found this and added a little white paint. I love the detail and it's a great place for my vintage liens.

Cottage Style

I am working on transforming my dining room into the cottage look. I am in love with white. I didn't realize how many different shades there could be of white. The is my newest addition. Isn't the cabinet cute? I love it! If you are in the area you need to visit the King Mansion in Heber Springs Arkansas it is awesome.

Set-up Booth

I am tired as a dog. Boy that's a strange saying! I have a booth now at Searcy at Green Alley Antiques. I was bringing my first piece of furniture in and a lady bought it at the door. Wow, what a start. More pictures tomorrow.

Trash To Treasure

I was headed to the trash and then I thought lace, yoyos, and buttons. I started working on it. I now love it! It is one of my favorite new things in my dinning room.

I have been seeing these on other blogs. I made this runner yesterday. It turned out the way I pictured it. That's a good thing. Sometimes my projects don't.

A Thing For Shells

I love to decorate with shells. I think I have a thing for shells. They remind my of the beach and happy times. I hope you have some shells in your life.

This is a picture from spring beak when we went to Florida. I guess today I'm wishing I was there. As I have my coffee on the back porch it is really hot and I will be going back inside soon. It was so cool that day on the beach.

Technology: You've Got to Love It!

I have been working on updating my blog. I love to look at all the beautiful cottage blogs. I love the great ideas that I receive from their pictures and post. I am having trouble with some of the downloads but I will keep on working.
