Welcome

I have a passion for decorating, shopping flea markets, garage sales, and crafting. I have browsed and "creeped" many blogs and discover that I have something to share. So after weeks of trying to decide how to get a blog started I am finally here. I'm still learning about the technololgy part (not my strong suit)but I hope to post many pictures of my house before and after, my antique booth, and my ideas on decorating and crafting. I believe everyone deserves to live in a beautiful space and not break the budget to get it!! Looking forward to your feedback, talk to you soon.

Howdy

Well hey there folks.  Sorry it's been way too long.  Other things always seem to take precedence over my blog.  It also isn't helping that my computer or/and this program is always so difficult.  Sometimes the pictures don't upload or the whole blog just disappears??  I'm sure it is user error but anyways..It makes me not want to sit down and blog.  But today I'm having good luck shsssssh.  My computer might realize what I'm up to.   Here are some things I have been working on:


Antique Buffet.  Perfect for extra storage in any room or would be great as a TV console with plenty of storage for DVD's, components etc.  Gorgeous even by the pool but I would use it inside the house.

This beauty is so special.  Not many of these babies around, and a turquoise one....I say it's a one of a kind. I found this in Fort Worth near TCU from my friend Junker Val her store is awesome, if you go tell her I said Howdy.

I am in love with these old radio cabinets.  I got this one in Canton for $10 !!!! I went and made it so beautiful that I have decided to keep it.  YAY!!  Now it's priceless.

This is my old friend.  I have had this antique chest of drawers in my booth for months.  I have it priced reasonably and it's in perfect condition,( you know the drawers slide right) please someone buy it and give it a good home. I can't keep everything!!!

Another old barn wood piece, custom made by Joe.  For sale in my booth.  This would be perfect for you because everyone needs a country-kitchen-chic china hutch

French Provencial dresser all redone!!  This chest was huge and in perfect condition, sorry it sold quickly.  I will buy old furniture so think of me when you need to get rid of your old junk (treasures)


I bought this buffet from a guy in Canton who I didn't like at all.  He was like a slick used car salesman.   Not the nice junker people that I usually meet.  I think he might have stolen his stuff from old ladies in his small La. town.  Yes that's right he said he was from La. must be north La. OOPS  Not because he was slimey but because he wasn't cajun!!  Anywho,  the finish was beat up and ugly but he wouldn't deal with me.  I really liked the piece but I walked away.  When I came back by a few hours later he decided that out of the goodness of his heart he could meet my price.  Ha Ha I figured that he didn't want to take that thing back to La.  I didn't cheat him, we both made out good!!  Oh BTW, I'm keeping it, it's in my living room.  ugh I know I need help. But I have a rule, when something comes in something goes out.  remember that Black Beauty at the top of this blog.... Tee hee




Spring break with my little girls. (I know it's blurry) Evidently I have problems with cameras too.

Awe love them.  I think they are starting to look alike.



I hope to be back before summer, but you never know.  Mysterious right.    

PS Visit my booth and all the other 200+ dealers at Mid Cities Antique Mall in Hurst.
