Garage Sale Shopping.....

I have been at it again! I just can't seem to keep away from garage sales or Estate sales! I have so much stuff! I am doing some Spring Cleaning to get rid of stuff (right now) and here I am...buying more new stuff! Here are a few of the "New" finds.....


Dazzling Vintage Rhinestone purse

Vintage Seashell necklace.....I don't know...this may have to be a keeper

 
A Basket full of goodies! I can think of so many things to use these vintage earrings on!
I must say...If affordable, I never turn down old jewelry. You can make lots of fun stuff!



This lamp is so "Paris Apartment" I was intending to make it into a candle holder, but for now I guess it will stay a lamp.  I got this idea from a blog I read faithfully, she had made a few vintage lamps into candle holders....What a terrific way to use them! You can see her post HERE if you are into"Shabby Chic" Ms Penny has got the blog for you!
 
 
 
I just Love this plate rack!! I really have been trying to find one for my kitchen...This one is for sale at a local Antique shop. But, for $470...I guess I will have to keep looking!
 
 
I am selling my "Spring Cleaning" items on Ebay, now. If you would like to take a look: CLICK HERE

Making Old Porch Posts into Shelves...

BEFORE:


AFTER HONEY WAS DONE:


I GAVE IT A FRESH COAT OF PAINT:

Hey everyone,
I got to thinking...after the Christmas tree was put away, how wonderful a new set of shelves would be in its place! I looked around but didn't find anything to appealing. I almost ordered a set from Target's Shabby line...when low and behold, I had an idea! Now, my husband may tell you it wasn't to good of an idea, considering he would have to do most of the work! Turns out, he was very kind and up for the task. That is one good thing about being empty nesters, you have a lot more time for projects. Anyway, I had a couple of old porch posts plus a few of those old grape and vine cast iron brackets. I knew they would come in handy some day. I told him what I was wanting and TA DA..I think he did a wonderful job and they came out great! I cant wait to get them decorated! I think new "Grandkids" pictures in "bejeweled" frames would work just great!
