Shabby Chic Blanket Storage Basket



I found this lidded house basket at a yard sale several months ago and it's been waiting patiently in the garage for me to give it a makeover.    I knew when I bought it that it would be perfect for blanket storage.   Now as fall approaches and the nights are getting cooler,   it's time for the makeover.

Shabby Chic Brass Fan Fireplace Screen


It's time to come clean.....I didn't show you everything I bought at the yard sales over the week end!     I wanted to wait and  make sure that H could fix this piece!    Some of the fans were bent so it wouldn't fan out,  but I was willing to risk the $5  I paid for it in the hope that H could fix it.

Shabby Chic Vintage Fair Trophies


The County Fair is in full swing here in Eastern New Mexico and the State Fair will begin in a few weeks.  Just for fun,   I wanted to add a few Fair touches to the existing decor in the kitchen.     I had picked up some vintage trophies at yard sales this summer .......cheap....and wanted to use them in  my vignettes.     The trophy in the photo above is an Oklahoma three chicken derby trophy...whatever that is...lol!

Hallway Reveal



Before I give you a tour of the new hallway,   I wanted to show you my latest project

Weekend Treasure Hunt


I was so excited when I came upon this vintage Odette Barsa lingere at a yard sale over the week end....what a find!     I was able to get a little background on the pieces from the lady having the sale.....they belonged to her mother in law that had just passed away and are from the 50's.    It is a four piece set and she had them marked individually but really wanted the set to stay together so she made me a great deal on the four pieces.....$10 for all.   I told her I would add them to the collection that I have of my mothers vintage lingere and always treasure them.

Rose Knobs and Update on Hall Paint and Flooring


I am frequently asked where I purchased  the pink ceramic rose knobs that I have on the cabinets in the kitchen .     I bought them years and years ago from ABC Dist.    I found some similar to them on Amazon,  ordered them and two days later they were on my front porch.

Accent Lighting


The most common types of lighting are ....general,  task,  and accent.      I think  most of  us have the general and task lights scattered around the  room,  but what about accent lighting?

Weekend Treasure Hunt


I didn't go to any sales on Friday....we had something more important to do!    Our granddaughter had a  "pinning"  ceremony at the college.....a year from now she will be a RN.  
 Saturday we drove to Amarillo Texas (about an hour and a half away) to pick up some wood look plank tiles for a project that I can't wait to show you when it's finished.     Soooo,  it was mid afternoon before we had a chance to visit any yard sales.   Since it was late in the day,  everyone was ready to make a deal!
