~A Little Painting~

This week-end I picked up a couple of old sheet music stands.

I loved the industrial looking feet on them.

They were pretty scratched up so today I got out my can of spray paint and cleaned them up a bit.

I couldn't stop there though and a number was added to each of them.

Since I was in a "paintin" mood and being that Valentine's Day is around the corner.

I decided to pull out an old tin tile and do a little painting on it also.

I loved how it turned out!

Three large items I was able to fix up and get to the shop.

That always feels so good.

If you are in the area and Super Bowl isn't your thing.

Monticello will be having a storewide sale Sunday.

It will be a great time to shop.

Talk to you later!

Oh, How I love you!

I "HEART" my van!

(there is a table…4 chairs…2 small tables in the back of that van! Yes!)

It is so nice to go to a sale and not have to go back with the pickup, especially when the sale is not right next door.

Today, I was able to load up the van and go on to the next sale!


And you know what?

I could have stacked more on top of that wood!

On another note for those Picnik users, which I am, and so "LOVE"!

Apparently, they will be closing there website on April 19th.

Boo Hoo...

Oh...what am I going to do without Picnik?...I love it so!

So now I'm on the search for a photo editor.

I've used Picasa but its just not the same...

What do you use?

I'd love to hear from you.

what i love about it....

I didn't do much treasure hunting this week-end as there wasn't much out there that interested me.

But I did manage to meander into one about an hour after it opened.

I found one thing.

This sweet old child's chair.

It's the size of a high chair.

I love everything about it.

I love the old dark wood...

and all the details carved in the wood...

I love the fact that they used old wire around the legs to make it sturdy...

I love the fact that the wood is worn in different areas, probably from a very busy child.

So even though I didn't get into the "mother load" this week-end I do love my sweet chair!

Hope you found some great treasures this week-end!

Talk to you later!

Happy New Year!

"One of these things doesn't belong with the other ..."

Do you remember that song from Sesame Street?

Well, there is something that doesn't belong here...unfortunately she doesn't realize she's it!

I guess the best look out spot is on top of the hutch!

little sister...little sister...little sister...we've got to talk!

Wishing you a wonderful New Year!
