Winter has finally come to Oklahoma and I'm trying desperately to be a good California Girl and not WHINE about the sleet and snow that will soon blanket the ground. (I'm happy with the rain tho~we need it!) I guess after being cooped up from hand surgery for so long I WANNA GET OUTA HERE and have some fun. That said...I know Spring is around the corner and glorious days of junkin' and slummin' are on the horizon!
See the vintage dress form at the top? It is a great old piece and made of wood. I can't wait to do something fabulous to it! I'm thinking vintage lace, etc.
About three years ago my big sister rescued the one above from the TRASH and we had so much fun recovering it. She uses hers in her shop for display (I borrowed the picture from Facebook) and everyone wants to buy it! Imagine that! :) Her shoppe is in Dickson, Tennessee and it is darling! If you are close to Nashville you MUST go visit PLANTATION WHITE!
On Saturday I did a little bit of local tag sale shopping and I snagged this awesome solid wood desk. She's screaming out for a makeover and I'm going to give it to her! I can just see this beauty dressed to the nines with my favorite soft white paint! YUM!
The inside of the widest drawer had the burn-stamp of Ballman/Cummings - Ft. Smith, Ark. I just found an amazing article on this company...you can find it HERE. I just found a dresser and mirror on eBay and it's price is $700. Oh My Gosh...not gonna say what I paid for the desk but it wasn't anywhere CLOSE to that price!
This week I'll be working on restocking my suffering website. I haven't listed anything new since before my surgery so I have LOTS to catch up on!
Love to you...
