I have new photos of my home and thought I'd share a few...
Oh wait don't drive past I thought you were stopping in... I'm the one with the primitive porch.
You made it Happy July 4th!!!
I had a day off yesterday to prepare for you. Though I only got my dining room rearranged I figured you'd like a tour. It's kinda tight in here so lets all think thin for a few minutes.
Alright now I little closer look...
The blue basket on the middle shelf was a really cheap find because the handle in the back is broke, but I'll bet none of you noticed that. I will always stop and look at the broken stuff at stores because most times I can move it or turn it so that most people don't notice.
I just bought those metal candle holders on the the wall for $1.00 a piece at a flea market! The shelf aka(bookcase) was a find last weekend at a yard sale for $3.00. No it didn't look like this... LOL. I worked a little magic and look at my new shelf. Steve thinks it's too dark. OK who here thinks too dark is actually possible??? LOL Not sure if you can see them, but I also got the tiny little jars in the wood box on the middle shelf at the same yard sale. I believe they are jam jars with tin lids. A whole box for $1.00.
Hmmm... nothing cheap here except the ladder was free from my sister.
I think I already showed this picture awhile back. I made the checker board.
I opened up the sewing machine table for this display. I like it except for the hole under the writing box. LOL
I just bought the writing desk for $10 at the antique store. The glasses, pictures, and hand warmer, were all my great aunts so free, but priceless.
Last but not least... My dining room center piece. I bought the checker pieces for $.50 at the flea market. The candle holder I found today at one of my favorite shops for $15.99 with 15% off.
OK so this isn't my dining room, but I love it anyway. I just love aprons and bonnets of course made by yours truly. LOL. I once saw a set someone was trying to sell for $98 in one of the stores I go to. I thought to myself there is no way I would pay that so I made my own.
There you have it. Hope you enjoyed your brief tour. I have some other things I am working on and bought recently that I will save for another post. I am really excited as Steve and I will be working on something this weekend for my kitchen. Not sure it'll be done, but I'll try to take pictures while we are making it. Hope you enjoyed yourself the picnic is at 6pm so stay for a bit if you'd like.
