French Rolling Pin and Dough Bowl

A-DELIGHTSOME-LIFE-DOUGH-BOWL-AND-ROLLING-PIN

Last weekend, I went to Atlanta to retrieve an auction item we'd won - garden tools. I bid on a French style bed and was outbid. Sigh. There will be one in my future! Since I was traveling so far, I thought I'd see if there were any sales in the nearby area. There was - an Estate liquidation. Most of what I saw pictured didn't appeal to me, … [Read more...]

And she shall be called 'Jane' I have the habit of naming inanimate objects…much to my family's amusement. Since I've already named my Bird Girl statue Eliza (like Lizzie from Pride and Prejudice) I thought I'd name my new vintage dress form Jane I found her on Saturday at The Country Living Fair.

Although they really are quite rustic, they seem to fit right in with a lot of decorating styles. This one I found at the Country Living Fair is quite large and heavy. I found it at … [Read more...]

Vintage Cast Iron Bed

When I saw this vintage cast iron bed...it was love at first sight. She was at an Estate sale in a room filled with collected ephemera. The collection of someone's life. Dearest and I had been looking for full size beds for the bedrooms of this house, while the children were here we had twin or daybeds for them. Now, we wished to make … [Read more...]

Dearest's New/Old Love As if  by magic, stalks appear mid-summer in my garden. These stalks are topped with deep pink buds that begin to separate and as they open, their color changes to a lovely, translucent pink.

As soon as I walked into the Habitat store I found this very large, romantic pitcher set on a table. Instantly I picked it up and carried it as I walked through the store. You can't really see all the lovely … [Read more...]

A Rosy Thrifty Find

Rose Thrifty Find teacup and scale

Last week as I was grocery shopping I stopped by my favorite Goodwill and the Habitat for Humanity store. I was really in a hurry so I scurried through both and nearly missed these two sweet items in the Habitat store. I overheard one of the volunteers talking about a separate scale and noting that one had just arrived today. I saw the scale and … [Read more...]

Shabby-Romantic Treasures

Pin It

Thrifting Finds And a little Crafting on the side     Last week, I had a meeting and it so happened that I’d pass a local Goodwill, two Habitat Stores and a Flea Market on the way. Soooo, I left a little early and began my rounds. I started at Goodwill and conveniently one of the Habitat stores is just across the street. Then onto the next … [Read more...]
