~GREAT VINTAGE CUBBY~
Winter rain has finally come to the dry, parched land of Oklahoma and I'm smiling from ear to ear. The heavens have opened up and favor has been given to our land... Even though I had some errands planned for today I decided to stay home just so I could hear the pounding rhythm of the rain beating down upon the roof of my La Chaumière de Briarwood. The birds are literally singing in the rain and the squirrels are bouncing from tree to tree caring not in the slightest the water is pouring down from the sky...
~SCROLLY MAIL HOLDER~
I can only imagine how happy our farmers are!
Over the weekend my Mr. AGPMan and I went junking and had the most wonderful time. We haven't done anything fun since before Christmas and my surgery so it was great to get out.
I was so happy when I found another one of these sweet mail/wall pockets. Not a fan of the blue and stencil...but I do love the one transformed earlier last year!
~WALL POCKET TRANSFORMED~
We visited several of our favorite spots and came away with lots of neat things for my local booth space (I have some news about it that I'll be sharing with you soon).
~SWEET WOODEN CHURCH~
I'm not sure what this wooden church was meant for...but this is exactly how I found it. Already white and distressed and I just love it. I'm probably going to keep this one...at least until Easter!
~VINTAGE WOOD PURSE~
Usually when I find these old wooden purses they are already heavily decorated. Originally they came from kits and were painted up and lined with bright colors. I'll probably transform it to look similar to the one I painted last year (see below) once my hands heal up...
~HAND PAINTED with PINK ROSES~
Also snagged the sweet French style lampshade you see below. Love it...just not the black trim! So...I pulled it off and plan to do something different with it.
~SWEET FRENCH FABRIC LAMP SHADE~
Not sure what just yet...just not the black gimp.
Maybe some tattered fabric is a soft shade of taupe? Hmmm...
~UGLY CHRISTMAS BASKETS~
Now before you roll your eyes you must remember this...
Just about anything can be transformed. I promise you those ugleeee baskets will look wonderful in time for Christmas 2013.
~PAST IDEA FOR CHRISTMAS BASKET~
Remember this basket from late last year? Nothing like thinkin' ahead (wayyyyy ahead)!
~ODDS and ENDS~
I love picking up little things that can help fill in the gaps in my booth space. I plan on painting the small photo frame white, but the existing ceramic frame and little basket will be left as-is... The hairspray can-cover will be painted white...oh...and those stands you see in the far back of one of the first pics...those came from a wholesale biz that closed several years ago...boo hoo! They are wonderful but not for sale!
Big changes are in store for my local booth space. I'll be sharing with you in a few weeks what's been happening while my hands have been healing and I haven't been able to work!
Hope you are having an awesome day.
Love to you...
