Late Summer Vignette


 Hello,
I have been a little lazy the past few weeks. I haven't been doing anything to
exciting. Early morning walks, laundry, cleaning, and i always try to add just
a little decorating in there. My day is not complete until i move some stuff around.
Oh, and lots of cooking too. Now that i am writing this i guess i haven't been a little
lazy!!! Also i try to squeeze a few garage sales in there too! I am kind of busy!! No
wonder why my legs ache so much at night. Don't you wonder what i do when i am
not being a little lazy???? I'm so tired when my head hits the pillow that i snore like
there is no tomorrow.(That's what my hubby says) I don't believe him:))) Here is a 
late summer vignette i put together on one of those lazy day's. I'm stepping into fall
slowly.




 The plates are put away, and all my ducks are in a row!!! It's a watercolor print. I guess you
 know that i love cows, ducks, roosters, and all farm animals!!!







                                                              Have a lazy August day!!!

Flower Arrangements In Vintage Tins

Hello,
I love to use old vintage tins for flowers. I see so many at yard sales, thrift shops.
They're inexpensive, and it gives a centerpiece a unique look. Whenever i see one
that catches my eye i buy it, and put it aside. If i am invited somewhere i fill the
tin with fresh flowers to take along as a cute hostess gift. I want to show you some
arrangements i made using the vintage tins.



 I found this sugar tin at the thrift shop for $2.00. I filled it with pretty flowers.

 


 I found the old bread tin at a yard sale for $5.00. It's perfect for a pretty fall arrangement.
I'm putting this away until after labor day.





 
Another little cute one i found at the thrift shop also. With fresh flowers this would be great
as a little gift. 





 I wanted to give you a closer look at this very old bread tin. The color is just right for
fall flowers.


                                                                Have a great day!!

Fresh Eggs Sign


Hello,
It's so humid outside that i have have been doing some inside projects. I found
a rooster sign at a garage sale, and it was the perfect size i was looking for. I
knew i could paint over it, and stencil it. Since i made the roman shade i wanted
something different above the windows. I think it has the cottage feel i was going for. 














 This is the before. Not good, but the perfect size.



I treated myself with a bunch of fresh flowers from the grocery store. Fresh flowers always
makes me happy:)) 


                                                           Have a happy day!!!!

Garage Sale Finds....

Hello,
I hit a few garage sales over the weekend, and found some really cool stuff. For some
reason when i see a sign that says Tag Sale they seem to have old vintage stuff. I don't
know why that is, but it always turns out that way. I always brake for tag sales!!! I put 
together my new finds on the jelly cabinet, and above the jelly cabinet.




       
I found the botanical prints at one garage sale i stopped at. I love botanical prints. 
There is something about them that i just love!!




   Second stop was the tag sale. I found the old vintage flour can. Third stop i found the old
   old clay bowl, and the wooden croquet balls.




  I love the old rusty flour can. With a few garage sale finds i think this looks pretty good.


                                                                           Have a great day.
