Just a quick post today...
Great dresser, and I left it Au Natural!!
It has some wonderful inlay on the front
that I just couldn't cover up.....
And I'm kinda liking the dark wood...

And guess what?
This one didn't get a paint job either!
It has some burled wood on the drawer
fronts that was just to nice to cover up,
and the top is marble, great drawer pulls too!

Nice little drop front desk
in the best shade of green with
some had painted details.
The front opens up to lots of cubbies
to hide all of those nasty bills.

Happy Wednesday everyone!!

Enjoying Spring..finally!!

Well, I guess all my whining about the weather around here was heard (and just so ya know, I'm not usually a whinnier) It's finally starting to really feel like spring!! And my paint is drying without resorting to drastic measures.
We have been getting some great things for spring, this is a great little enamel top table with pull out leaves, check out the great patina on the legs!
It's time to start thinking about planting your garden and we have the perfect thing for that, a Garden Organizer! It's great for keeping track of what plants did well, when to fertilize, when to plant etc. It's spiral bound with lots pockets. Also just in, Citronella candles in a terra cotta urns. Now you can stylishly keep the bugs away! New totes, tablecloths and runners all great for that garden party you may be planning.

Well, I hope to get some Junking in this weekend, I'll let you know what I find....
Have a great weekend...and may the sun keep shining!

Rain, Rain, go away....Pleeease!

Wellll......I don't know about any of you, but I am sooooo tired of the RAIN !!!
I know I don't have much to complain about,
because some of you are waist high in snow,
and I feel for ya, really I do,
but there is a reason I live in California,
simply put......I NEED sunshine, yes there I said it.
And I really need a flea market fix!!!
Not only that, it has really put a damper on my projects.
Today I seriously considered using my hairdryer to get some paint to dry,
not wanting to wait three days for it to dry.
So as I seem to be spending my time watching paint dry,
I thought I would share what's new in the store.....
Believe it or not, this wonderful bed sat in my storage for about 8 years.
Now mind you, it didn't look like this then,
in fact it looked so bad neither myself or Mr. Cottage wanted to tackle it.
But after some re-doing,
and uncovering the original painting on the head board
(yes, someone actually painted over it !)
I think it turned out okay...don't you?
Love this old school photo !!

I found a new jewelry artist who makes really
amazing pieces of jewelry out of vintage
pieces reworked into wonderful designs, and very affordable too.

Lots of new cute kitchen stuff in, some great cookbooks too.

Well, I hope the sun is shining on your part of the world today,

Thanks for stopping by, Sandi
