I have not been antiqueing for a while so my niece Lauren and I made a date to go today. Unfortunately Aunt Flo was a few days late and she had to come with us today too, but other than that it was fun.
First I'll show you some of the stuff I saw, some fun, some odd, some sad and some creepy.
So this is my dream hutch, if I could afford it, I would buy this and put it where my red shelf is. Look at all the nooks and cranny's for displays and look at the storage, it was too cool. For now, I'll just look at it every day on my blog.
Need a rolling pin? If you're gonna make Aunt Thelma's tarts you just might.
So wanna see my purchases? I usually wash stuff up right away when I get home and take pictures, but we got home late and then Jeff wanted to watch Captain America, so I just took pictures, I will clean everything up tomorrow.
I don't really need anymore glass jars, but I couldn't resist this one an old sugar jar, I love these for small embellishments cause I don't have to take the lid off I can just shake them out. Oh and the brass mini candle holders...watch for those to be re-purposed.
I found this cute small table with two drawers, and it is really sturdy, I'm gonna shabby it up, add some cute knobs, maybe a basket or two on the shelf and I think it will look cute at the foot of the guest bed.
I found an old beverage crate, and it is nice and sturdy and a great deal. Down the road my current punch holder will be full so I will put them side by side.
Speaking of punch holder, I was honored to have my updated studio posted on the Crafty Storage blog.
Look what I did the other day...
...I had put this chalkboard Decor Elements inside my 8 1/2 x 11 cardstock cabinet. I wanted to find chalk markers. I asked at the office supply store and the guy looked at me like I was nuts. So the other day I was at Joannes and they had them. I need to get more colors, they are too fun. They write like a marker, but it is chalk so you just wash it off with a moist rag. When I get low on cardstock I jot it down and then I check my list when I put in my order. I ordered the chalkboard one called Notebook and I am going to hang it inside my stamp set cabinet, so I can keep track of stuff there. It won't hurt my wood cabinets that is what I like.
Well I better hit the hay, it's late and morning comes early.
Have a blessed Sunday and thanks for stopping in.
