So, I finally finished . . .

You can take a look at my flicker page (right side of my blog) for clearer pictures, but I finally finished the re-do on my stairs.  I do really love it.  As I began placing things, it took on a different life than what I had originally intended, but I’m really happy with how it turned out.  I figured if it makes me smile when I walk in the door – it’s great!

Friday Flea-ing

  Sometimes, just sometimes, you get the sudden urge to find more treasures even though you have SO MANY you could fill two houses with.  But . . . . I woke up this morning with daughter gone for the day, two boys fairly self sufficient, husband at work and me feeling like playing hookey from work.  So, the story begins. . . .

I felt like I couldn’t go too far in case of an emergency, so I scavenged the local antique malls.  I hardly ever go locally because I swear I never find anything.  But today, VOILA – not much but I love everything I bought today.  I think the two vintage 1978 perfume bottles are so gorgeous!  I just love the graphics of the roses on the bottles.  I think I’ll probably list the vintage enamel pin – I’ve never found one so pretty.  The other rhinestone pins will probably stay with me and be used for embellishment on a sachet or tote.

The stunning vintage chintz sewing box will become a part of my collection – one of my great weaknesses.

Hope you all have a wonderful holiday weekend – Many blessings and many fun times with family, working on your house or just lazing around.  Big hugs – Wendy
