I've Got The Blues...

Most of you know I have a serious love of pink, but these days I am loving blue too. 
Or various shades of aqua if you will.

I really need to get some paint this color for future furniture makeovers.
How do I EVER match it up, that's the delima.

How romantic, right? Perfectly impractical.

More gorgeous paint.
Miss Mustard Seed is one of my furniture painting idols!

I would wear this around my neck any day.

For the love of tulle...

Heaven hanging from a chandelier.

Oh yeah, don't you just want to get ready HERE at the start of each day...

And finish the end of each day by strolling through this
cheeky aqua gate and front door!

A Pink Saturday Eggstravaganzzzza

Have you decorated YOUR eggs yet?!

Have you stylishly displayed them throughout your home?

I have to admit I haven't done a single thing to decorate for Easter. So I borrowed these pretty egg images from Country Living. They're nice that way.

Happy Pink Saturday and have a wonderful Easter!

Many thanks Beverly of How Sweet The Sound for hosting.

Chair Makeover and A Little Jazz

My Aunt and I hit a couple garage sales last weekend and this chair was one of the goodies we came home with. It definitely needed a makeover and I got right to work.

This was the end result. It's already in the booth. Remember a few weeks ago when I was bemoaning the lack of furniture sales? Be careful what you wish for. Not only did the bookcase we had been borrowing from our shop owners sell, but a dresser sold last weekend and another dresser/nightstand set is on layaway and meant to be picked up at any moment. We had to do some serious rearranging and furniture shopping.  We're still short on furniture backups so hopefully now that it's nicer garage sales will pick up and I can get cracking!

All That Jazz after it's been reworked. For the third time in 2 weeks. 
As much as I'm loving all these sales I'm needing a bit of a break!

We are rich in mirrors. Every time I see one, I snatch it up.
I've bought 6 in the last 2 weeks.

Hope you are having a great week!

Treasure Hunt....

I spent last Saturday on an early morning treasure hunt. Our local community has a garage sale event at the fairgrounds twice a year. Over 400 garage sale booths in one location. My Sister, Aunt and I got there at 8:00 sharp, right before it opened. The line was long but moved really quickly once it opened.

It was a mix of good junk and bad junk. Just like most other garage sale experiences. I did find a few things like this cool vintage fan above.

I also spotted this cool barnwood mirror tucked away in a corner. I was eyeing it and the seller came down on the price. I was shocked because it was early in the sale. So I snatched it up. My only complaint was having to haul it back to the truck. It was heavy, thank goodness for my big sis!

I also bought this fantastic chippy bench. Got a good deal on it too! I almost didn't want to part with it but I did.

This iron table was the last thing I bought before I called it good. The merchandise I got required 3 trips back to the truck and frankly I was too exhausted to pack any more. I did get a few more things I'll share later. These are just the things that made their way to Jazz already.

While leaving the parking lot I got a call from our shop owner telling me I had sold the big dining room table, a chair and a coffee table. YIKES. I have been whining about not selling any furniture for months and then it all sells in a matter of days. And I have nothing on standby. Serves me right. I had to borrow a small bookcase for display purposes only to help fill the void.  Michelle and I managed to pull everything together on Sunday. It only took 4 hours!  By the way, these photos are from our booth after we finished adding new merchandise last weekend. They were NOT from the garage sales I purchased them at. Trust me when I tell you it was NOT that fancy! That's okay, it was fun anyway. Even with the cold. And the rain. And the endless trips back and forth. I'd go again tomorrow!

Update...remember I just told you I was having lack of furniture issues. I got another call today. The bookcase we have been borrowing from our shop owner since last May has sold. Now I have to find somewhere to put all this...

Lord have mercy.

When it rains it pours! I guess it's a good kind of problem to have. We have the option to borrow another bookcase and I did just buy a table so hopefully we can make it work. But MAN I need some deals on some furniture! Time to hit some more garage and estate sales PRONTO!
