My weekend Finds....

I should have had my before picture first
oh well .
I took some fabric scraps
and cut out petals free hand.
then I sprayed them with spray adhesive.
check out my polyester throw again in its new home .
I found this lamp and loved it but the shade was so dated and small.
so at the next thrift store I asked if they had any shades
this is what she brought me $4

before shot
I wanted a bigger shade for whimsy
goofy or cute?

I found this quilt top and a huge box
full of pre-cut squares.
100's of them

I love these stacking boxes
pictures and wood figure.

wool throw
and pretty dish

These sheets I have big plans for
show you later.

I loved this dish
its huge
this could be used for
so many things.

these two chairs
wait till I get done with there makeovers.

this cabinet is cute
I also got a vintage bookshelf
I don't know what color I'll paint it.
I won't bore you with the rest.
with all this no wonder I hit that car!


  1. Did you get all that at on your trip to Anchorage? That's a lot of stuff. I like that little cabinet..I think that would work a lot of places. And I like the quick fix for the lamp shade, very cute! Diane
