Autumn Days

Now that Halloween is over, I have changed some vignettes over to Autumn.
Today I thought I would show you a few

I just realized this little birdie is facing away from the camera.....those little decorators in my home

Here is my sideboard. The autumn watercolor print is from the thrift store. The
Transferware china is from the classifieds

Shabby Dresser Sneak Peek

I bought a French Provincial Dresser on KSL Classifieds to paint and put in my daughters room.

Here is my little helper with ther primer

Once I get the whole thing done in a creamy white and then waxed I
will take some stunning "after photos"

Happy Halloween

I got the stack of Stratfordshire Plates at a yard sale this summer and the white ironstone bowl
at a yard sale last summer

 Here are a few shots of my spooky front porch

Have a great Halloween week! Have you gotten your candy
yet and hidden it from yourself?

Sneak Peek

I picked up this adorable hutch on the local classifieds. Can't wait to paint it a fresh creamy white. I wanted to give you a sneak peak. I think I am going to remove the metal mesh lattice in the doors.

Skinny Dirty Legs

This is the little thrift store table I told you about in my last post!

It was pretty dirty and dusty. At $10.00 I couldn't just leave it there.

I loved the tall skinny legs and all the detailing.

It has dovetail joints on the drawer.

I cleaned it really good with spray TSP.
I haven't ever used the spray. I loved it.
I then primed it with KILZ

I lined the drawer with scrapbook paper.
I bought a little crystal knob, but haven't put it on yet.

See the detailing on the legs. I am going to wax or antique the details
 so they really stand out.
Just got too excited to get the pics posted.

This may go in my daughters room, or maybe my dining room, or porch
or the master bedroom, or a bathroom............we will see.

Have a great week

4th of July Weekend Begins

Here are a few shots of my 4th of July Weekend decor
in my hutch I like to change out frequently
 Mini Apothecary Jars from the thrift store
 More thrift store finds. Love the salt water taffy in red white & blue wrappers
(that I keep finding all over my House)
 Vintage blue bottles I have had for years. With little sparkler picks from the dollar store
 New banner this year. Couldn't resist
I LOVE decorating for the 4th. Here in Utah we keep our decor until after July 24th which is also a state holiday

 Cloche with a mini Americana Chair and tiny pillow

Have a great weekend. I will post photos of the front of my home this weekend. I am in my PJ's and don't want to run out there in front of the neighbors right now.

I bought a darling vintage desk yesterday for $10.00 at the thrift store. I can't wait to show you.
