Where Have You Been, And What Happened?

The sky is blue...the sun is shining and I'm loving this weather!

This week-end was a long, extended week-end for me.

We had conferences at school so I was off work Wednesday and Thursday.

I was busy, but a good busy.

Everything was great till Sunday morning...I went to the car, opened up the passenger side only to see my glove compartment opened...ugh!

I've seen that before.

My blue tooth favorite vintage sunglasses....and if you can believe it a pack of gum were taken.

Not the best way to start off the day.

So, now the hunt begins for a new GPS...which will not be left in the car!

Other than that, the week-end was good.

One of the things I did was go to the Salvation Army. That's not a store I unusually hit but I was glad I did.

One of the things I found was a very large old picture frame, with a cheap poster inside.

I wanted it for the frame.

When I got home I happily discovered another picture on the back.

A very old oil painting.

Unfortunately, someone had taken a knife to it, why they did that I do not know.

I didn't care though because from what I could see, it looked beautiful.

So I waited for my #1 to come home so he could remove it from the frame.

Unfortunately, they had glued the top of the canvas to the poster and I couldn't save that.

But I love it in all it's shabby beauty.

I can't seem to find out anything about it.

I was hoping someone possibly knows something about the artist or the painting.

I'd love to hear from you.

So now I'm enjoying this unexpected surprise.

Oh yes, in case you want to see the picture frame...

Here it is...

it was a fun find too!

Kicking Up My Boots!

Oh...I'm a happy girl!

I just went over to Rene's Blog and found out about a site called PicMonkey it!

Picnik is closing in two days and I've been trying to figure out what I'm going to do for a picture editor.

This is the one!

Thank you Rene!

A few weeks back, while out treasure hunting, I spotted these sweet vintage children's boots.

They are the tiniest, cutest little things.

I had every intension of selling them but they seem to have settled nicely in my house.

Maybe the next pair!

I'm joining Kathleen today for White Wednesday.

Have a great week!

Off to a Good Start!

Well, the show is off to a great start!

A BIG "Thank You" to all the people that turned out for it.

It will continue for the next couple of months.

My #1 and I headed in today to do some revamping.

We sold a few pieces and need to bring in a few more.

I should have taken a picture but I hadn't planned on doing a post tonight.


I wanted to show you a project my #1 and myself worked on for the show.

A big clock!

It measures 36".

We made it using old recycled wood.

I love how it turned out.

This is the second clock as the first one sold.

This one is a light grey color.

If you'd like to see more great pictures of the show be sure to go check out Monticello's blog.

Thank you for stopping by!
