Hey there Everyone!! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend...our weekends are Sundays and Mondays as those are hubbys days off..so Yesterday we took Millie in for her 3rd ear check..and she is healed so that is nice to hear both for Millies sake and our check books sake..:) so we did a little running around and came home and worked in the back yard..and it was a hot day...but we were working in the shade so that helped..we had a huge pile of limbs from the photenia bushes we took out 2 years ago..(I can't believe it has been that long)..so we finally cut it up to use for firewood and we still have another pile to either get rid of or burn..then to finally finish that back once and for all...well when we got home yesterday my huge package from Cindy of Cynthia Lee Designs had a huge garage sale and she took some photos to show us what she had and well I couldn't resist..best prim garage sale I have ever been too..;) and as you can see from the photo above it was a big box..and I had my little Silly Millie getting ready to help..;)
the box was crammed full and when I had taken this I had already been digging in it..felt like christmas..in July..;) and it was soooo much fun..
fall plate..my favorite..love the pumpkins and the crows..
the summer plate..
neat little square plate..
three little plaques..
a lighted birdhouse..;) not sure if I am keeping it or giving it to my little sister for her americana room..:)
these are for my little sister..:) I gave her 2 little america saltbox house pictures and these will go nicely with it..:)
this little saltbox house had a little bit of roof damage...
so I took my trusty e-6000 and a clamp and a touch of paint and it looks good as new..also for my little sister..this also lights..got to get a light for it.;)
these were little added extras from cindy...love the little jars...the plates were an extra too..:) the little pineapple had some damage..but nothing that a little paint couldn't fix..looks good as new.;)
this little teapot got a broken handle in the travel here..the post office isn't too careful and I am sure they just tossed this sucker around..again some e-6000 and it has character now.;) love the sheep.:)
I remember this make do makeover Cindy did with this..it had a heart cutout and she replaced it with a rusty star..much better.;)
love this faux fruit..
love the crows...
love this big black wooden star with this picture in it..
a great weeping willow tree with pineapples...love it!!!
a cute primitive sign..
two little heart shaped ceramic candle holders..these were extras too..and will go to my little sister.:)okay below are the reveal photos..I had so much fun tweaking..and I love this look so much better..got rid of some of my cat stuff..*GASP*..I know what you are thinking..but it needed to go and you will see that it is much better...more prim indeed..
I put up the candle sconce..will probably grunge up the candle..there was a doll here, then a hat and now this..looks good with the window..
this is how the stairwell used to look..it was okay....
I put these up in the upstairs hallway next to the linen closet..
here is the after photo!!!!! don'tcha just love it..looks like it belonged there the whole time..
when I went to bed last night as I was coming up the stairs I started thinking how I was going to change this with some of the things I already had there..so I couldn't wait to set this up...you can see the pineapple and the crow pillow in the window..
it all ties together so nicely..
I put the lighted bird house here for the time being.can't wait to see it tonight for some ambieant lighting..:)
I put the primitives sign here and the little teapot on the shelf..
this was the laundry room when I got the new enamel ware pan..it just wasn't sitting well with me..
so I hung the pan on the wall with the other one..
this had all my cat stuff on it before and it just never went well there now that I have this ensamble..I love how the sun hit as I took the photo...love the sun when it hits around noon..feels like fall..love it..;)This is also the stairwell, where all the other items are too.
I got this the other day at the TS and wasn't sure where to put it....
here it is on the kitchen table...Well I had a blast tweaking all of this today...I hope you enjoyed the transformations..today feels alot like fall..just a nice breezy beautiful summer day...the birds are chirping waiting for their mama to feed them..laundry is hanging on the line to dry...washing the bed linens and the girls are out in the kennel watching the world go by..:) I am off to finish up some chores and enjoy the rest of the day.:) thanks for stopping by.;)
