Well, I have tried posting this for about 30 minutes now and every time I load pictures, the lightening hits and the computer shuts down. Gotta love April showers or maybe I should say April storms (lol). Well, last week I went to the TS only to find another firkin. Yep, you heard me correctly. I was thrilled, but it definitely needed some work and re-vamping. I took off the metal cover on the front and sanded it a little bit and set it aside.I also found these little shelf sitters, but I am definitely not going to keep them like this. Oh - don't get me wrong, I love gardening, but I bought them for other reasons. So, stay tuned for a makeover on these bad boys. I can't wait to get working on them.
Well, here is my shelf that I got when visiting my Mom and Dad this weekend. I just love it and well I had so much fun decorating it last night. Doesn't my firkin look too cute up there with my greenery? I am still debating on whether or not to prim it up, but for right now I think it looks great up there. I will be sure to keep you posted on what I do with that firkin. OH - do you all see my old hay pitch fork? I thought it looked great up there and all the goodies just added a special touch to it. I love the onion basket that I purchased from Pam hanging up there. I thought it looked primtastic!! Everything just adds a final touch to make it look prim perfect!
I think I am FINALLY satisfied with my entry way. I am still slowly working on my laundry room, but my entry way is completed for right now. So, what do you all think?
Another item that I came home with this past weekend was this old grain scoop. I got it from my Mom's friend Sara. She has her own little shop and well I spotted it and asked if she would be willing to part with it and she said "yes". It is funny because it wasn't even for sale, but I knew it would have great potential in my family room and indeed it does. I touched it up with a little paint and also decided to touch up the lettering as well. It was so faded and well I was ready for it to pop. I was pretty happy with what I did to give it a new and improved look, but still make it look a little prim.
Here is the BEFORE picture......
Here is the AFTER picture.....doesn't it look great? Don't you love it?
The towel hanging from the grain scoop says.....
"Happiness depends upon ourselves".
Wow - if that isn't a true saying!!
