Secrets of an old door...

Sunday, May 3, 2015

An old door is the first welcome we receive. Imagine how many times this old aged door has been opened and slammed shut, greeting and saying good bye to all our families and friends. My old door found its way to me via an old salvage yard in Tenneessee. I can only imagine the secrets it shares with all the families that have lived behind it.  Using old doors in home decor is very trendy these days. Enjoy how I used mine.

You Never Know....

Little Brown Chest
When you start out on an afternoon road trip , you never know what you might find. A little town, a street side corner and a sweet little couple sitting on the side of the road selling their stuff. If your in the furniture biz your furniture radar is always on. You scan every garage sale, every flea market, everyone's porch, ( believe it or not) and of coarse  any sign that boast  "Thrift" looking for the perfect piece ,at the perfect price. I think I found that piece. In that small town, on that corner , from that wonderful little couple. And if your in the furniture business you also know that at any  given time you just might decide to keep that piece you found on the side of the road instead of selling it. That's just what I did. Enjoy!

Simply Basic

Monday, April 6, 2015

Last Friday I had a chance to go to a pasture farmhouse sale here in Georgia. It wasn't a terribly large show, but the promoters did a great job of getting the customers there. It was a pasture farmhouse show, in a beautiful farm setting south of Atlanta. Newnan to be exact. I understand the show is only about 2 years old so i'm sure it will only get bigger and better. Anyhow, back to my finds. I found a basic white ceramic soup tureen. No markings, probably not old but it has a great look. Simple white, no chips and great for my collection. On Saturday I found myself at a diy parking lot sale, outside of an antique mall. There again not many vendors, but I did find 3 simple little brown transfer ware plates. Nothing fancy, nothing valuable, simple little plates. I also found some wicker place mats for my farm table. They  definitely are plain and simple , but you know me, I have to doll up everything. So I put a coat of semi transparent grey stain on them. Now we're talking. They turned out great. I love them. I didn't find alot , but what I did find I love.  Basic and simple.....ENJOY!!

From Georgia to Texas with Love

Monday, March 23, 2015

Since my last post I've been working on something that has been really fun and special to my heart.

A family reunion was planned in Texas for our family,  Ron and I took advantage of it to take a trip from Georgia to Texas. I think everyone has a favorite cousin , and I'm no exception. My cousin Cathy, ( who lives in Texas) and I have been redesigning her home over the phone, thru ipad, over the internet and being glued to HGTV channel for years. After collecting some things and getting feed back from some of my friends here in Georgia,we, loaded everything up in the van and away we went. After cousin hugs and screams of excitement. We got to work. We really didn't do anything major just a new look for spring!! I think cousins are our first true friends.. Thanks Cathy  (and Ernie) for letting me share my passion with you. Enjoy!!
Welcome Spring!

Sweet Day, Sweet Friends and Super Sweet Sugar Bowl!!

Wednesday, March 11, 2015

The weather has been damp. drizzly, and somewhat depressing, but don't you worry because me and my BFF's, Sue and Carol managed to get a day of great spring shopping done. It's awesome to have friends that have like minds and passions to share.
We started at the wholesale floral market and loaded up with some wonderful spring things.
With bird nest, eggs and cherry blossoms in tow we headed to our next stop, Marietta Queen.
Marietta Queen is a great dealer mall. Several of our friends have booths there. We love to hunt and pick over every booth. As we were oohing and awing over most everything, Carol had by back and obviously my eyes. She spotted a little brown transfer ware sugar bowl. It was definitely calling my name. I love it. I love the shape, the color, and the markings on the bottom. And the best thing about it, I loved the junkin price ( if you know what I mean).




I would love to have a bumper sticker that says.....
JUNKIN WITH BFF'S AND FINDING TREASURES MAKES MY SOUL HAPPY! 
Enjoy!!
