Reading blogs this morning when I realized the sun was shining in on my living room make-over. I tried to get shots of it yesterday, but it was raining, and the flash kept washing out the pictures so they didn’t do justice to all the fussing I’d done. But the warm bath of sunshine called me to grab my camera and try again. This is a bit more like it!
I found these delightful little dogwood pillows at a thrift store last fall, and couldn’t resist! Sweetest little things were under $3 and are backed with a baby pink quilted fabric.
Happy blooms from my friend Terri! Friends who spread cheer with flowers. Love ! And another thrift find: the blue vintage metal tray. Drum roll please: 99 cents. (Or was it 69 cents?…I can’t remember)
Cheerful mug my honey brought me from Germany 🙂
Found the vintage ticking pillowcase on Etsy for six bucks. And the lighter one I found at a thrift store for under a dollar. But it was one long piece in a six-inch wide strip. So I sewed it together to add to my collection of vintage ticking pillow covers! More love!
Happy Spring! Fresh and new all over!

Playing around with the law of attraction has been way fun! I dreamed of a plaid wool robe to wear all winter with my messy hair, slippers, and a coffee mug. I am never warm, so only wool will do. And what to my wondering eyes should appear (on a little clothing rack at a community yard sale) but a Pendleton gem that was brand new or near! And just my size! Here is a hint of what a new one costs:
If you wanna go buy one…
But I paid $6 for mine. Just sayin.
Gotta love when a trip to Salva turns up a treasure like this one! Sweet!
Wait! Start the music….THEN scroll…
My first attempt at a chair facelift! I got six of these at a yard sale a couple years ago. They weren’t pretty, but we needed the extra chairs for a party. Now I am changing them one at a time with all kinds of fun spray paint colors and shabby fabrics! Stay tuned for the other five.
Isn’t she LOVELY?!! 🙂
