This Week..I'm Feeling..........The Pink!!!

Found these pieces hidden away..forgotten treasures that I never bother to look at.  I knew there was still hope for these pieces.  Not so pretty, with appliques of peppers, onions and I sanded down all of the unsightly sights a quick prime I also added so pretty appliques...and....Wallah!!!  Total new fresh look, pretty shabby pink home decor..

Letter Holder/Napkin Holder, Jewelry Box and Napkin Holder...Not bad huh???

This Napkin holder had the ugliest plastic applique of red rid of them and added this lovely Barbola Roses Applique.

Here is a sneak peek of the before on this letter/napkin holder gives you and idea on how the both looked.

The Letter/Napkin holder was right up the same path as the napkin holder...plastic appliques with garlic, peppers and onion designs..

Saving my favorite for last..This Fabulous Jewelry Box..originally retro 1950's style..again, I added the applique and the result are Sweet in Pink!

Hope you enjoyed this brief presentation of how I was feeling this week...who knows what the heck I'll be feeling next week..Stop back!!

All these pretties are listed on my Etsy.
Have a wonderful weekend..

Happy Transformation!

Remember these from my last Post???

I went to the Flea Market...yet again ( I just can't help myself sometimes) and so....  I found more..of course! Vintage Crates with magazine pages or posters.  I don't know who created these, so I ask the Vendor he had no Idea he did say he had them for a long time..possibly early 70's late 60's.. I truly don't know much about them...but I felt that I could do something with them...So I decided to just freshen them up a little.

I must say I'm truly happy with the turn out..

I am Happy with the Transformation.

I will be listing these on Etsy !!  Check back soon!

Have a great week everyone!

I'm Itching for Fleaing...

Normally at this time of year I just start Itching for Fleeing!!  I mean literally just get out.  The cold weather and sweaters get to the point that all I can dream of is light clothing...A perfect Spring Day..arise bright and early..put on my cap..and just go Fleaing!!

I had the Fleaing Blues this past I headed out to an indoor Flea Market...hoping that it will make my day..hoping to find treasures and not be disappointing!!

Well, I certainly got my wish!! Looky..Looky...Looky...what I found.

Let me give you a brief tour..

Please take a good look at this..hmm...well..let see..old crate??? with a Vintage Magazine Ad glued on it and lightly stained.  I don't know much about it..but the wood seems really old and the nails also..anyone seen these before? don't know if it's a reproduction..but it sure is pretty!!  check out the back.

looks pretty old to me.

I absolutely love this one..Smaller version with a baby Vintage Soap Ad..same deal..same wood.

Old or Repro???

Now take a look at these ..can you guess what they are???? I just had to snoop and open them up..grabbed them right away..

Vintage 1970's Matches!!  U huh!! I loved the art work and just had to get them.

all the boxes have unused matches..

 I simply adore pretty Vintage Pictures.

I tried hanging it in my Frenchy Dining Room..but my daughter says.."It creeps her out" "the eyes are following me"  so I guess this will have to be listed.

I also love shadow this one is not so old but the print is just adorable..

Couldn't resist.

Last and my next small project..which by the way is my favorite project.  A Vintage Tall Jewelry Chest..can't wait to get soon as I figure out what colors, maybe some appliques??? who knows.

I also purchase a little girls vintage bedroom which was being unloaded for the Flea Market as I parked my car, I watched and get this!  I Ask them how much??..haggled a little and next thing I know I had them unloaded from their car to mine!  Wow!! What a Great Turn Out!! 

I will post pictures of the bedroom set when I can..right now it's cramp up in our shed..another great project to look forward too.

How was your past weekend..Please tell me about your treasures!!  Have a wonderful week!
