Plant Stand Make-Over

I literally rescued this plant stand from the dumpster.  A neighbor was cleaning out his deceased mother’s house and had a bunch of plants on the lawn for free.  When I stopped to grab a few, he mentioned that I might like a plant stand that he had already put in the dumpster.  He dug… Continue reading Plant Stand Make-Over

Tuesday’s Treasures #32

Last week I mentioned I got a bunch of Little Golden Books at an estate sale.  Most of them are reprints from the 1970s with a few from the 1980s thrown in for good measure.  All are in excellent condition and mostly valued at $3 with a few exceptions.  I paid $.70 each. Hopefully some… Continue reading Tuesday’s Treasures #32

Dixie Belle Mannequin Makeover

I discovered Dixie Belle Mineral Chalk Paint when a fellow vendor became a Dixie Belle retailer.  I must say, this paint is amazing!  It goes on smooth and dries pretty fast and you can paint nearly anything with it.  It’s thinner than most big box brands of chalk paint and therefore you use less, but… Continue reading Dixie Belle Mannequin Makeover

Tuesday’s Treasures #29

It’s been a rough week.  I came down with a nasty cold last Monday and I am still feeling fatigued and a little weird. The last two colds I have had, I had a terrible case of anxiety for the first 24 hours, especially in the evening.  I don’t know what that is all about,… Continue reading Tuesday’s Treasures #29
