I wanted to show you one of the fun quick and cute make n takes from Fall Fest. Too funny though, it almost didn't get made that day. Rhonda had picked up the chocolates and then at Fall Fest, I asked her where they were and she was like "in my fridge so they didn't melt", so then her cutie patootie hubby Dave drove them over…yay Dave!
These are just little squares of chocolate and then cover them cute with DSP and ribbon, wouldn't this be nice to set on someone's desk at work? or perhaps a teacher?
Well after showing you the green metal holder I was going to use for extra cards…I ended up returning it. I could not find a place for it. So I brought this home instead and I knew right where it was going. What a cute little dresser eh? Heavy too, they don't make stuff like this anymore.
Now this is just me setting stuff on top, it won't probably stay there and I need to move my bubble pictures, I don't know what else to call them, but they were Granny's and they are old. So I had this dresser there before.
So I moved it out in the front entryway, and I love it there! What is so funny with this whole trend of painting furniture, it is not a new trend cause I remember this dresser was Poppa and Granny's and when we got it from them (probably 20 or more years ago) it was painted white and we paid lots of money to have it professionally stripped, and after that we said we would never paint wood again.
But the new to me old dresser I got today was already painted so that does not count. It looks super cute in the guest room with the bed I re-did and my night stands. Now it is hard to tell here but the bed is shabby white and the night stands are a shabby vanilla. The dresser I got today is inbetween. I was going to paint the night stands to match the bed, but now I am not sure. Does it have to be all matchy matchy? Shabby is shabby right?
I need to holler at the girl I got the light on the left from, I would love to get another one…to match…ha!
Well this old gal is off to bed, have an awesome Thursday and thanks for stopping in.

not matchy is good….nothing matches in my house and I love it! also, either unpainted or original paint is good…..we never paint unpainted wood or strip old paint..i love original and the shabbier, the better! of course, this is just my humble opinion but I stick to it! ha 🙂 love your blog and I can always relate 🙂
