Please Join Us!

Everyone is so excited when this time of year arrives!  Who can resist a little mid-summer garden tea party?!  The sun went down a bit and now there is a cool breeze...

Effie Trinket decided she wanted to join in the festivities!  Thank goodness, because it just wouldn't have been near as fun without her!

Nothing tastes better on hot summer nights than fresh fruit.
The blueberries and strawberries are delicious, don't you think?


Well, it's time for me to head back inside.  I can't wait to visit everyone's tea parties today!

Thank you for stopping by!  It was such a pleasure having you for tea!

New Mimi and More Refurbs

I am going to be a grandmother!  My "tiny baby" is going to have a tiny baby of her own.  Although circumstances are not ideal, we couldn't be more blessed.  I am happy that she will be staying with us and letting us help.  We will get to see this little life progress every day while she is pregnant, and then be a part of her/his life after she/he gets here.  God is definitely good!  The doctor is doing an ultrasound on Friday to make sure everything is good.  Then at 11 weeks, she gets another ultrasound ~ a 3-D ultrasound, and we may even find out if she is having a girl or a boy!

On that happy note, here are some more projects that I finished over the past couple of days and a couple of old projects that I want to share.  We have been incredibly blessed to be so busy!

This little barrel is an old storage drum from a garage that I cleaned up and added a seat to.  So now it is a stool with storage :)

This night stand was salvaged from a broken dressing table.  I just love the long legs!

I painted the inside of the drawers as well, because they were quite yucky.

This is a chamber pot stand that I picked up in Round Top during our last trip.  The details on this piece are amazing!  I love, love, love the hinges!

I also painted up a vintage canister set this week.  I used Pure White Annie Sloan chalk paint and added a little hand-painted chalkboard accent on front.  They were missing the knobs on top, so I bought these little crystal beauties at Hobby Lobby to make them look a little more shabby chic.  I think they turned out pretty cute!

Well, I am off to paint some more.  Thanks so much for stopping by today!
