You may remember this darling chippy table that I posted about recently.... I found a home for it in the living room and love how it looks there!!!
With Farm Chicks quickly approaching, I have been trying to finish some projects I've had in the back burner for a while... I painted and recovered this darling chair, using a piece of vintage barkcloth, and I am really digging it!!!
I also finished sewing this adorable barkcloth pillow... Great for a bed, chair or porch swing!
I found this full size metal bed at a church rummage sale, and saw some potential... After a good coat of paint, I measured the middle part, cut a piece of poster board to size and covered it with some batting and vintage fabric... It was then glued to the middle recessed area... What a transformation!! I have to say this is one of my favorite makeovers to date!!
I have also been doing a little shopping... This Saturday I attended Cindy's barn sale (from Tarte) and came home with this super cute cart! I may just have to make a fabric liner for it (wouldn't it be great to store packing supplies at shows....?).
As I was driving home I saw a sign for an estate sale, there wasn't much left but this chair had to come home with me!!
I also found this cute dresser at a garage sale... The best part? It's ready to go, including the darling glass pulls!!
Here are some other cool things I found at Monticello while fluffing up my space...
Finally, here is the darling bed I talked about in a previous post! It is ready for a coat of paint and some antiquing, hopefully I will be able to paint it tomorrow! I will make sure to share the final results with you!!
Have you had the chance to look at the new issue of "Where Women Create"? Oh my goodness, I am just in awe of everyone's creative homes, but when I turned the page and saw the home of Candy Moger, my heart skipped a few beats, my mouth started drooling and I almost hiperventilated!! It is truly vintage wallpaper paradise!! She has a pile of vintage hatboxes from floor to ceiling!!!! How inspirational!!!!
I know many of you live far away and it must be hard for us to talk about magazines and things you can't get, so I wanted to tell you that if you ever see something you are just dying to have, I would be more than happy to get it for you (I would just have you send me the money via Paypal)!!
I did not want to end this post without giving a huge thanks to Jennifer from Barking Dogs , who was so kind to give me the KREATIV BLOGGER award! I am very honored and excited!!! Thank you so much, Jennifer!!! I am asked to list seven things I love, so here it goes:
1~ My four children!! They are my greatest joy and accomplishment!! Anna is a smart and responsible girl with better cleaning and organizational skills than me; Clara is a sweet and caring girl (and my little forgetful child...) who makes us laugh with her impersonations; Rita is a ball of fire, always very passionate about her endeavours, with an incredible love for animals (no, we can't get a puppy!); and Alex, well, if you have read this blog for a while you know what this six year old has put us through in his short little life!! He has an incredible sense of adventure and keeps our lives exciting!
2 ~ My sweet husband!! Mark is truly the love of my life!! He is a very hardworking man, a wonderful father and an extremely patient and tolerant husband!! He still treats me like a princess and I am so lucky to have him!
3 ~ Chocolate!! It is my biggest addiction, I get withdrawals if I don't eat chocolate at least every other day...
4 ~ Fabric! My closest friends can attest that I have enough fabric to open a store... Some people collect stamps, I prefer fabric!!!
5 ~ Vintage treasures! There is nothing like the feeling I get from finding a beautiful vintage wallpaper hatbox, a piece of barkcloth, a sweet piece of crochet trim, an old mirror, a chippy old table, a rose painting, a ....
6 ~ Travel! I have been blessed in my life with the chance to visit many wonderful places, from the time I was very little...!! If I had the time and money, I would travel all the time!!! I am trying to pass onto my children the love of traveling!
7 ~ Last, but definitely not least, my friends!! They truly are the wind beneath my wings... There is no better feeling than to know that they accept you as you are, love you unconditionally and will do anything for you!! And when I say friends, I am including you, all my sweet blogging friends!! Blogland has allowed me to reach places and know wonderful people I would not have otherwise, and I am having a ball!!
